    I have worn two pairs of Regular Ralf and - Alf to pieces. No holes but just heavy wear. But the style is not something I wear these days. i have brought them both to a taylor and the guy made them tapered. Wear em regularly again now. Did you guy ever do this? I have two new pairs of jeans I feel. I just love it. Throwing them away felt like a waste of such well worn denim,

    That's not a bad idea. I've never done it to any of my jeans, but I had two old wide pairs of chinos tapered and am now wearing them again. :) The sales lady told me to just buy new ones, but damnit I don't want to throw away perfectly fine pants. Nudie Jeans is all about recycling so I'm sure they are happy with your decision.

    I've never done that but I would be interested in seeing the results.
