Fade Friday – Nudie Grim Trim (1 Year, 1 Wash)

Fade Friday - Nudie Grim Trims (1 Year, 1 Wash)

Fade Friday - Nudie Grim Tims (1 Year, 1 Wash)

This week’s Fade Friday comes from Jacob Peregin, who was kind enough to pass on his amazing Nudie Grim Tim year-long fade progressions. For those interested, feel free to hop over to his blog, which documents his Nudies journey, and you can also follow him on Twitter at @5implyJP.

According to Jacob, they’ve endured a whole year with only 1 cold wash! What I really love about these jeans is the patch work, especially the backpocket area, which gives them true character. Interesting how tiny cross-like holes developed on the honey combs as well.

Note: Have any well-worn raw denim that you’d love others to see?  If so, please send photos and details to info@rawrdenim.com

    I like the use of the contrast stitching on the back pocket and the front pocket where his phone has made a nice impression.

      how have they got tighter over a year……….my A.P.C ‘S have grown in just a week, personally i like a looser fit and a greater tone range from indigo to white, but that’s just my opinion.

    I think these jeans look kinda junky now. I mean, for only having them about a year, they’re basically ruined. A few more months and they’ll be little more than rags.

    Personally, I prefere breaking in and wearing 4 or 5 pairs of jeans over years and years so that I end up woth 4 or 5 pairs of nicely distressed, but still functional denim. 

    I understand the cache of having extremely distressed jeans that you’ve worn religiously for a year, but over all I’d rather have a moderate stable of nicely worn in, but not destroyed, jeans to choose from, without feeling like I have to constantly wear a single pair to achieve some sort of benchmark.

    That’s just me though.

      totally respect that response bryan.

      i personally love the idea of having a pair thats trashed when i begin a new pair of raw.
      having both a clean & well worn pair of jeans covers it all.

      also, i am guilty of breaking them in quite quickly. 
       
      so a new pair is necessary surprisingly early.

      I say each to thier own, after all this is why we all love raw denim! So we can achieve a fade that is to our individual tastes. Personally I also like having a few pairs of jeans on the go. But there has been times when financially thats not always possible and if I have a pair that I really love I will wear them till the end or I get another pair, I’m already 4 weeks into a new pair after only 4 months of the prvious pair.

    I really like how these aged, although I don’t like the fit. They’re a little too tight for my liking.

    The fade looks great. Not a big fan of so many ripped holes but can’t really help it since theyre nudies…

    I can not honestly believe you all are saying that these jeans look ugly and junky. This is one of the most beautiful pairs of aged denim (even though I am not a huge fan of Nudie). Not just in the way they look and fit but in the process that it took this person to fade it. 
    Wearing jeans is about spending as much time as you can with them essentially creating a certain bond with them. These nudies are not only personal to the wearer because they form to his body but from the memories and experiences that were undergone while wearing them. This is why wearing denim is special us because it becomes a part of who we are and we love them for it. When you are at a satisfied point with them then maybe its time for a new pair, a new set experiences just waiting for you, a new bond. 
    For the people that are into raw denim merely for the fades I feel sorry for you. In the end they are your jeans and you can do whatever you want with them. So go right ahead and grab your sandpaper but that is not what being a denim head is about.
    Live life and let it show…

    Is it just me, or do Nudies seem to kind of fall apart pretty quickly?

    • swissjeansfreak

      The older Nudies made before 2008 were lsating longer since they reduced their denim weight from 14 to something near 13 oz.
      But still you can get really awesome fadings on them if worn the hard way without any washings over years with those shiny greenish color including patina

  • ijustwishi

    I get why people think these might look “junky” and a bit too worn out. For me though, these are awesome. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I come from a state in the U.S. where the majority of people do serious physical labor. A lot of coal mining, working in the field with oil and gas wells, construction and plant type work…you get the drift. 98% of the people in my area couldn’t care less what brand or cutt their jeans are and care even less about how easy or hard they are on them. Just around town you can see some amazing wear on a pair of jeans the guy got for 15 dollars simply because he did what does and the thought of how his jeans might turn out never crossed his mind. These jeans remind me of those and I totally get that might not be for everyone, but I love it.

    • swissjeansfreak

      I also love this authentic hard wear in style. And you’re right you can get some great results on basic dark blue jeans if worn the hard way without washing them
