The Heaviest Nudie Jeans So Far
Nudie jeans created one of their heaviest jeans so far in their collection. This time they used their Tuff Tony, loose-fit jeans with a wide leg made from a 17oz heavyweight Japanese selvage denim.
The 17oz Selvedge Fabric
The new Tuff Tony is made with a 17oz fabric, where the yarns both warp and weft have been produced by ring-spinning of organic cotton. The warp yarns for this heavy-weight fabric have been rope-dyed in pure indigo instead of synthetic indigo. With this authentic dyeing process, they create a rather thin, yet darker outer layer in indigo while the core is kept undyed. This means that you will get heavy contrast fades with wear over time. The rope-dye technique is known as the best when it comes to aging and future fades.
The fabric itself is woven on original 1950s shuttle looms to get that typical vintage fabric look and feel. A coarse, thick, and highly textural denim that renders a grainy surface and pronounced twill lines with wear, and which skews and puckers with washing rendering beautiful marble effects. These features are known as artisanal-made Japanese selvage denim fabrics.
The Details Of The Tuff Tony Jeans
The Tuff Tony jeans is stitched with a Tobacco thread, and they used vintage-inspired copper trims. The back pockets are printed with off-white paint that will age and fade also with wear. The selvedge fabric is also visible on the coin pocket. For the fly they used buttons, and they used a Jacron patch on the back.
The fit of Tuff Tony is a loose-fit with a high waist, wide legs, and wide leg opening. The jeans is made in Italy.
