It's really a nice change from normal dry denim.... anyone have already broken into anyone of these? I read somewhere that the Thin Finn Ultra Indigo Coated will fade into a beautiful blue leathery like wash :)

I like the unbleached weft, so that when it breaks in there is a yellowish thread underneath. I am quite perplexed as to why Japanese denim brands don't use an unbleach cotton for the weft.

I was at the Julian Red shop yesterday. They've got this new black/black denim made in a small japanese town famous for its denim in a very limited run (guess they made like 50-60 pairs) of the new model D2. Man were they intense! Uber-tight weave with like sort of a sheen to it and an extreme density to it! Gotta get em...

what are those jeans coated with?

I've not seen these jeans in the flesh yet, but they are most likely coated with a PU based resin mixed with indigo and/or sulphur dye (black). This can be applied in various ways by dipping or spraying either at the fabric stage or after the jeans has been sewn. At a guess, these have been coated by the fabric mill.

It's a development in denim that's been led by european mills, and produces some very interesting colour nuances.

The orange bath is a tint that will colour the weft yarns, (the orange won't show up on the darker warp) and as the photo implies, the results, after wear will have a dirty look.

Nudie needs to do a coated jean for the man with more generously proportioned thighs

I picked up the TF Dry Black Coateds for $50 at Barney's Co-op a month ago during their pre fall sale... what a steal :)

i've got the ultra indigo coateds, worn them for maybe 20-25 times now. it fades a lot quicker than i thought i would, as ive already seen a couple of well worn dry black coateds that don't fade at all. the colour coming through is almost electric blue, i think the contrast will be pretty sick in the long run.

too bad i don't give them a lot of wearing time, mainly because theyre just a bit too tight for everyday wear and i like the denim on my prps a lot more.

i'll post pics of the faded parts in a couple of days

thanks for the info, sounds kinda interesting. On an off-topic note, I have a really hard time finding julian red stuff, both online and BM in the states. I mean, I want one of those munki hoodies but I can't find a place to order it! Just ranting
