Nudie Jeans arguably helped push raw denim into the spotlight with their many cuts, fabrics, price-point as well as their ideology popularizing the idea that raw denim shouldn’t be washed for long periods of time. Since breaking onto the scene 14 years ago, the brand hailing from Sweden has consistently released new models of jeans in myriad fabrics; including their most recently released, the Grim Tim Organic PIMA selvedge denim.
Pima cotton is an Extra Long Staple (ELS) cotton that is known for its durability, strength, and softness; making it more commonly used in higher-end bedding and shirts. Nudie first sources their organic pima from a small farm in New Mexico, USA, weaves the cotton into selvedge fabric in Japan, before finally stitching the fabric together in Italy. The result is a 13.5oz denim that has a slightly streaky appearance and will break in nicely over just a few wears.
Limited to just 480 pairs, the jean is only being sold in their webshop and in various concept stores. Each pair is numbered from 1-480 on the leather patch and boxed with an informational booklet about their organic pima cotton. They also feature many of the typical details seen in Nudie‘s previous selvedge releases, such as branded silver buttons and rivets as well as a selvedge coin pocket.
