Nudie Jeans wear & tear contest – month’9
Nine months ago, four guys came together at Nudie Jeans HQ in Amsterdam for the official start of the Nudie Jeans x Robin Denim contest. After more than just a few beers, many games of ping-pong, and lots of fun, they put on their contest jeans for the first time. That specific pair of jeans has become their closest friend in the past nine months and will be for at least the next three more. Nine months after the official start of the contest, the differences between the jeans are already substantial.
For the contest, we had chosen the Nudie Jeans Grim Tim, for its versatile fit and enormous fading potential. The jeans are made of a 13.5 oz. Japanese selvedge and it features all Nudie Jeans’ signatures, such as the orange selvedge ID and the stitching on the back pockets.
Well, looking at the fades after nine months of wearing, we can say that we picked the right jeans! It is interesting to see that the same pair of jeans in the same fit and fabric evolves completely different depending on who wears it. Some of the jeans are already beaten up, while others still look quite fresh. With three more months to go, the best part is yet to come!
In three months, we will announce the official winner of the Nudie Jeans x Robin Denim wear & tear contest.
Below, we will showcase the month’9 update of all four pairs. Clicking on the names above the photos will redirect you to the page of each contestant, where you can behold the first nine months of wear!
