    The difference

    The difference is really just that the thin Finn has not been pre rinsed. For all of the "dry" fabrics that nudie uses on the tight fits, (tube Tom or skinnier) the fabric is rinsed and this is for a couple reasons. One, is because rinsing will make this "power stretch" fabric more comfortable which really helps with the skinnier fits. Second this also help with pre shrinking the denim because these "power stretch" fabrics shrink a 4-6% after the first wash therefore by getting rid of that extra shrinkage you won't have to worry about skinny jeans becoming too skinny. With Tape Ted 16 dips and Thin Finn dry twill they are both considered power stretch fabrics. However because these are not quite as tight they extra comfort from rinsing is not as necessary. However because they will shrink 4-6% after the first wash it's not recommended to size down in these fabrics. (Power stretch denim doesn't means that there is more stretch but rather how the elastane is woven into the fabric and yes this is actually the term used by Nudie)
