I'd love a rerelease of the selvage Thin Finns, or some selvage/heavy weight TLJs would be fun 8D
I think if anything nudie will lean over to a popular cut for a heavier denim because its whats gonna give them the most sales. I dont think nudie will agree to make a heavy denim that wont sale to well other then the few people on this forum. If you havent notice nudie is discontinuing the baggier fits pretty soon cause people hardly buy those like fast freddy and easy emil.
I kind of agree with Earl in that it has to be a cut that suits all body types. So I'm leaning towards the Slim Jim, which is a pretty versatile fit imo (can be sized supertight or loose).
I'd be alright with the Joe though - it can be sized a bit tighter, correct?
If I werent on my phone I would contribute a lpt more, but I think the cut should be grim tim or slacker jack, imo .
i know it's a collab and not a contest, but we did just have the AJDLAB3 contest... not to mention, it seems as the mid to big size guys are all voicing their opinions, any skinny guys on here have any opinions?
in my opinion if it had to be any nudie cut i'd like the ralf, but it'd make more sense to have a diff cut wouldn't it? (i mean, nudie releases enough new fabrics as is)
well im the skinny guy and i say slim jim but the only problem on the slim jim is that i dont think they can make it selvage with the ways its cut.
Skinny young man voting TF. TFDSS would be neat-o or just some 30/34 TFDC, I can't really wear the 27/34 comfortably I don't like/don't have the body for AJ, sorry guys..
^ Well that'll be the problem then. Not everyone is going to agree on a cut, as us skinny guys don't like the AJ, and the rest of the forum doesn't like the TF.
Jims are the best option IMO, pretty much right in the middle in terms of fit.
yes we the young guy need to be tolerance for the older people here , we dont wanna see doc house in skinny jeans rite?
slim jim or AJ work best i think
I wouldn't want jims, they fit me like shit. But, for a skinny guy, TF's are too tight for some people on this forum... And I mean if this is going to be a special cut, why just make it another common cut? Pick an uncommon one (slacker jack!!!). I would do average joe or jims (even though I hate the fit, but seems like everyone wants it) since nudie tends to have a lot of dry versions, and variations of that model.
Also, if they are going to make it special or what not, I would hope they make a thick leather patch at least, and some nice rigid dry Japanese, or cone mill denim. Also, something around 13-15 oz would be ideal, and all of this is obviously IMO.
I don't think Nudie will do this. I just have a feeling.
Also, if they do it - I expect prices to be 250-300$+++ easily. The prices on the official Nudie Jean shop are ridiculous to say the least.
Personally, I want an Average joe.. I think it'd be the middle ground for everyone. Couldn't you guys just size down on the average joe? Maybe Nudies should release a "Fitted regular" cut?
Just take the Slim Jim and axe the outside seam and give it some generic Nordic name haha.
well we must at least just try , this is myNUDIES forum afterall and for the cut i think we got a fix one on this AJ
I would buy a pair if the fit is right. But why would nudies wanna make a collab pair with lil ol' us though? We're not that big...
I mean AJ is a nice cut, but personally, I think we should do Grim Tim. I would love to see a grim tim collab. I don't even know if nudie will agree, but we should even try for a new cut...
Even if Nudie Jeans Co. doesn't want to do a collaboration, we can always look for others (Benzak Denim Developers, Self Edge, etc.). I feel that the important thing is doing a collaboration for www.mynudies.com, the brand chosen is subordinate. Though I feel the chances are slim with Nudie Jeans Co. as we still don't know if we fit into the "quota" for the number of customers. For a small handful of people, I don't know if they are willing to go through the hassle and make a jeans just for us.
really can't see kiya doing a collab with MN... he has to get another brand involved first of all, and second of all he doesn't really these forums too often (with good reason, he's already got sufu and to a lesser extent styleforum)
Benzak is cool but I don't really want to fork over 200+ for his products - no hate just an honest assessment.
Doesn't work for me?
I second that. As I wrote yesterday, the only sense in a collab for me and most other old folks here, would be to get a classic nudie, that we dearly miss in the new range. Not a TLJ in stretch selvage. And the TF is the most popular and spread model, I don't see why we need another model. Rather bring back the Sven or Ralf
Ypu're right. The best way to get a collab nudie would be:
1) pick a cut, they still do, e.g. SJ, AJ
2) pick a fabric, they still do: for example the 14 times dipped 14,5 oz of the upcoming Emils, it looks greencast, slubby and very nice, or the Organic Dry of the Joes, or the Veggie, or the Hemp.... and use it for another cut.
3) Still, the price will be high, but I feel 250 bucks ok for an exclusive collab, or did the japanese brands reboot my brain?
From waht I've read, the SJ (for the slimmer guys) or the AJ would be the two models we all can somehow agree on. Unfortunately I can't vote anymore on the link greeneye posted.
This is the hard core of old nudies fans and young folks. Many of us are unhappy with what nudie did lately. I am one of them, and I was a hardcore nudie fan, I bought at least 7 pairs, 1 Jacket, two Shirts, 3 belts, 1 Hat and so on. If they don't see the chance to get credibilty back - **** them, sorry. And a collab will be sold to all people - just like SE does. But we get the credit for the design and eternal glory, as well...
Sorry, for posting that much: If Nudies disagrees: Ask OOE Yofukuten????
