Nudie Slim Jim check

Hi guys, I purchased a set of nudies off of a site called Ssense, and they are too big for me. I am wondering if these are authentic, so I can sell it on ebay/craiglist.

According to my friends, Nudies should be pretty stiff when you get them and get softer as you break them in. But, mine came soft. Softer than most jeans. Also, for some reason, these nudies are not 98% cotton 2% the stretch thing. It's 100% cotton. Why is it different? One thing I noticed, the jeans have like white cloth in it. I expected the outside to be blue, but it's like dotted with tiny white dots on the outside. Is that normal?


Here are the pictures of everything:

Those are real, Ssense.com is a legit site. Slim Jim in broken twill just happens to be a softer denim, which also makes them harder to fade as the creases take a while to set. The dots that you are referring to is the weave of the denim (broken twill).

Broken Twill: A denim fabric weave first used by Wrangler in 1964 in their jeans style 13MWZ.The diagonal weave of the twill is intentionally interrupted to form a random design. Used prominently in the 1980’s by designer jeans brands like Sassoon, Jordache, and Calvin Klein with their dark prewash jeans and of course originally made famous by Wrangler.

Here is a pair of SJBT that have been worn in. I am hoping my pair will look similar to this one day.

Ohh thanks. I also found that Slim Jims are too big for me in overall size. The leg opening is too big, and also the upper legs is too big too. I like to wear skinny jeans and I am a pretty skinny guy, so are there any other ones that I should get? I heard Thin Finns are skinnier, and if I want to get it, what should I do with my Slim Jims? I want to sell them, but I had them tapered a bit, but they were still too big. I decided to remove the tapering and I want to sell it. Do you think people wear 29x30? All my friends wear either 30x32 or 32x32. Any suggestions?

If you're looking for a slim cut, then Thin Finns would be a better fit. In regards to how you sell your SJ that is totally subjective. You can try and put it in the Authenticforums marketplace (read rules first), mynudies.com, local craigslist, etc.

Good luck!

P.S. there are plenty of people who wear size 29, especially for raw denim as ppl like to size down to allow the denim to stretch into the appropriate fit.

Alright thanks a lot. I will try to sell these on here or craiglist and stuff

If slim jims are a bit baggy for me, do you think a 28x30 thin finn dry stretch would be good? And if the waist is a very tight fit, there will be a lot of stress there. And from what I know, the stress causes fading. So will that result in the waist opening to be all faded after 8 konths?
