Worn-Out Projects X Nudie Jeans Loose Leif

  • Owner: Richard from Göteborg, Sweden, working for Nudie Jeans.
  • Brand: Nudie Jeans.
  • Fit: Loose Leif, dry selvage.
  • Age: 8 months.
  • Treatment: The jeans is first washed after 8 months of usage. The jeans has worn knees from the sandbox, coffee stains from his favourite café and beautiful fades from the everyday usage as a first time dad.
  • Richard about his worn-out pair:

“You asked me during the photo session if I had any sort of special memory in Loose Leif and it really got me thinking about why I actually wanted to own these jeans. Loose Leif are my dad-jeans. I bought them about 7 months before my daughter was born, sort of picturing how I would wear them at the playground and so on. Loose Leif turned out to be the perfect choice for playground action with its regular waist and straight leg – and they’re a pair you can be comfortable on your knees in. So for me, buying my dad-jeans was in a way mental preparation for the life changing event of becoming a father. I also liked the idea of breaking them in during the pregnancy and symbolically washing and cleaning them right before my daughter arrived, giving her a clean and soft denim knee to rest in.” – Richard H.
