Never even thought of looking at Nudie pre-distressed. But no I already have a raw pair. Don't wear the same pair of jeans enough to make them look nice.

LVR which arguably retails them for the cheapest (incl duties/shipping), sells most pre-distressed pairs for $550+. Nicer ones like jake/umc/rack-rail run upwards of $600-700.

I guess I should have specified my price range... sub $400.

They had about 4-6 diff pairs in stock last time I was there (over a year ago). Ridiculous prices though, I suggest you try them on in store and order from LVR (shipping and duties/tax included in price). Much much cheaper!

Hope your size is there.

If link doesnt work, go to LVR and look for the '19CM BRUT DENIM JEANS'. It's the MIJ raws.

They restock every couple of months!

I think they've increased the price every single restock for the past 2 years now. The one time where prices were low (that I can recall) was when CAD was strong and had a good exchange rate with the EUR. I think at that point it was in the mid 300's for a pair. But soon after, it rose back to normal.

Does pre distressed just mean they've been washed and they aren't raw/dry? So nudie does sell some like this? I usually get my jeans ans wash/dry them to shrink the length as much as possible and then get them hemmed, can I do that with them?




Are all average joe's not raw denim?

Yea pre distressed is denim thats been washed. They aren't raw. Nudie does sell pre distressed denim. I wouldn't recommend washing raw denim before they are broken in..

The link you've provided is pre distressed denim. I'm not sure if Nudies sell average joe's in raw. I don't see it on the website, I'm not 100% sure though, I've never owned a pair of Nudies before.

thanks for the reply. i want pre distressed, didn't know nudie made any. So that pair of average joe's will be just like most my other pairs of jeans where I can wash and dry them right at purchase and then get them hemmed not having to worry about wearing them in or losing a lot of the dye/darkness? As it is now, I don't wash my normal jeans EVERY time I wear them. I wash them every few times but I like washing and drying them right away so after they're hemmed they don't shrink anymore. After that I actually hang dry them. I think I'll give some nudies re distressed a try. So with raw denim you want to buy them as tight as you can fit on because they're stretch as you break them in, but this pre distressed I'll probably want to buy slightly on the bigger size since I'll be washing and drying them right away?

Ok, so if one wanted to find a pre distressed nudies in about a 36 or 38, where would one go? I've seen nudies at a bunch of random stores but always just a small handful of times and ofton raw (or what i thought was at the time).

Yea, you should be able to wash and dry that pair of Average Joe's without worry. But, any kind of denim will lose some dye/darkness on its first wash.

No. Just sunlight will eventually darken the leather.

Kind of a dumb question, but what would be the best way to stretch out a pair of new jeans before washing them for the first time? Aside from generally just wearing them and bending at the knees/waist, how else could I stretch these areas out a little?

Took a day off of the raws today and threw on some old Sevens... to my surprise, it felt verrry nice, my god.
I forgot how soft and free non-raws are

Washed my nudie thin finn's today
I know they aren't that faded, but I got a pair of APC Petit standards so I won't be wearing the nudies much anymore so thought might as well wash the nudies.
These are 7-8 months in, and will post the finished picture when they're dried.
