• Nudie Jeans Back in Black!

    Nudie Jeans - Black is the new....black!
    When buying our Black Black and Black Ring options, remember they are deep indigo denim, over-dyed with black. When they start showing signs of wear, the deep blue will become more evident, giving them an interesting petrol-like effect. Our black-coated jeans have been treated with a synthetic top-layer to give them an almost leathery look and feel. Washing them will make the coating dissolve and come off before you’re able to get that beautiful worn in character. After six months of wear and tear the coating will be worn down, bleeding into the twill lines of the fabric and the seams, creating clear and beautiful contrasts. Our advice is to never wash them, but that’s just a recommendation.

    Home laundering your dry black jeans is pretty much a lottery. Washing them too early will make the color bleed out over the fabric, just like indigo would. Wearing them for six months or more will make the dye go deeper into the threads, fixating the color and preventing it from bleeding as much. This way you’ll get more visible moustaches and honeycombs. Depending on how the fabric has been dyed, you also get different types and effects. Rope dyed black denim run a huge risk of getting rain or snake effects when washed at home. Some like it others don’t. If you don’t want effects like these, you should take your jeans to the dry cleaners if they need to be freshened up.
