Sweden’s Nudie Jeans Co., the pinnacle of expertly crafted denim, have officially culminated their collective. The 100% organic fabric, 18oz selvedge denim-constructed jeans—dubbed ‘Steady Eddie Heavy Japan’—are Nudie’s heaviest jeans thus far. The intricate construction process is as well part of the allure, taking five entire days from start to finish for the completion of each pair. With a limited production run of 1000 units, the denims are as rare as they are structurally magnificent.
The composition of the denim includes a kilogram of Turkish cotton, over two and a half meters of Kaihara selvedge, nearly two and a half meters of thread, as well as ten silver plated buttons and rivets. Each of the 1000 pairs are delivered in an exclusive Japanese packaging called a ‘Unica’ box, and inside wrapped in a ‘Tenugui’ (Japanese towel).
Maria Erixon, Nudie’s creative director, discussed the new denim: “When I first laid eyes and hand on the uneven denim of the Japanese selvedge from Kaihara Mills, 13 years ago, I fell in love. This fabric became part of our dream and the Nudie Jeans love story. It is one of the main reasons we started this brand. We share a passion for the character and evolution of denim beauty. Something you learn to master over time.”
The Nudie Steady Eddie Heavy Japan denim is available now for approximately $360 USD from Nudie’s webstore, in just about every imagineable leg and waist size variation.
