    many of them did because it was by country. Some of the countries had less than two entries.

    They are in Italy now, according to the blog, because of a W&T competition they held for the employees of Nudie Retailers. The winners got to visit the Nudie factory in Italy, according to a guy at a Nudie Store in Oslo.

    But they say that more winners will be anounced!:-D

    These guys are amazing. The one on the right is responsible for the pictures in the nudie booklets. So now he fotographed us and it was an honor to stand model for him...
    Can't wait to see them pics :)

    The place (washing factory) where we had the fotoshooting:

    creating the button holes -> click!
    chainstitching (?) -> click!
    sewing the innerpockets -> click!
    ironing the outseams -> click!

    Little gifts they've made for us:
    [​IMG]

    - backpocket
    - blue,white,orange thread
    - a glass filled with sand,stones,rivets and buttons
    - a nudie jeans co. "banner"
    - the round piece is a denim example what they're using for testing the denims structure and so on!
    - 3 different leather patches (one with black+orange is no more getting sewed on to the denim, so they just sitting around on the shelves without any use!)


    Also we've got to made our own wash by getting some raw big bengts and do some scraping and all the other shit to it, just like all the "normal" prewashed jeans are going through.
    Was hella fun, even if i don't went for much with mine so that i still can wear them in myself...

    After we sandpapered them and stuff, we had to give them back so the guys at the nudie factory could throw them in their washing mashines. After that we heated out for some nice wine and dine and at the end of the day we've got the surprise we all were looking for.

    so here's MY wash :)

    nice detail:

    On day 3 we had enough free time during the arrival at the airport and our actual flight, so we (team germany and england) heated out to visitng bologna... (i think you'll know these places ale!) ;-)

    great place to eat really really good food and to trink great vino...
    [​IMG]

    after dinner we climped to the top of a huge building (498 steps to get up there!).
    [​IMG]

    but the view over bologna is ****ing awesome:
    [​IMG]

    so all in all the trip was awesome and actually more then i've expected it to be. the nudie family is just one hell of a family and it was f***ing great to meet all of them.
    got to met one of the 3 founders from nudie, he's such a great guy. there were guys from australia, norway, finland, sweden, usa, canada, spain, italy, france, israel, japan, denmark, england, portugal and off course from germany ;-)...

    Nudies 5 pocket denim is made out of 18 different pieces of denim getting sewed together. at their factory the only need 14minutes to produce one done 5 pocket jeans. At the washing and scraping factory each "scraper" is finishing 200 jeans per day and there are a lot of these guys walikng around :) (pic on the nudie blog!)...Every single raw jeans is getting scraped manually to a prewashed jeans so now i know why they are asking more for a prewashed jeans then for normal dry denim...

    well they haven't announced it officially cuz the retail-winners was just announced a tad before the customer-winners were announced cuz they had to get everything ready for organizing the flight and things. so they contacted me via email and told me about my win in the retail-section...

    as u know i work for a store carrying nudie jeans, so i work in retail and i'm the retail-winner from germany. so they've invited me to this trip. there where other retail-winners from kanada,usa,sweden,holland,japan,denmark,norway,england,australia and me from germany! we were 11 all in all...

    so now you know ;-)
    well at the begining of the contest i thought that all participants could just win the 500€ voucher at the end and that there would be only one winner in each country.
    was pretty surprised as my boss called me and told me that I've won in retail-section. so now every country has actually two winners.
    one in retail and one in the customers-section and me and stefan made it for germany, representing mynudies of course :)

    yeah but that may have to do with the fact that not every country had somebody participating which works in retail imo...

    ^thanks stefan.
    was pretty much fun to see where everything is coming from...

    these 3 days was like heaven to me. all these guys and girls, no mather from what country they are, are just great. hanging out with them was so much fun i have to say.

    now i got a complete new view off the brand and the family nudie jeans co. ,which makes me look and think totally different to what i was going to in the last few months.
    def. gonna stick with them...
