Nudie RRDS - 3 months & counting (with pics)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I picked up these Regular Ralf Dry Selvedge jeans in mid-December of last year. Since then, I've worn them nearly every day, and have only used the occassional spritz of Febreeze to clean them up. Overall, I can't be happier with them. I'm pretty impressed with the amount of wear that they have. I haven't ridden any broncos or roped any steers - but they're getting fairly broken in. I'm planning on a first wash sometime in June.

Cheers,

Schatzi

Thanks - but that's the funny thing. Most of this wear came from sitting on my ass at work. However, I started riding my Yamaha a few weeks ago, and the fade has definitely accelerated since then. I don't know what it is about motorcycles - either the riding position or the constant airflow tends to beat the hell out of denim.

that's a nice clear picture. don't know if the accelerated wear you mentioned lately is due to your yamaha, but i've noticed that the ralfs seem to turn a corner after two and half months, all of a sudden they just start glowing and changing color. my rrds are at 3 months to the day today. will try to take as nice a picture as you have...

shhh....

Cool - I'm looking forward to seeing your shots! And I'll send another update on these in a few months or so.

Thanks,

Schatz

Must be the way the cuffs are folded or the angle of the picture but these RRDS look much more tapered than normal.

RRDS at 30 days (EDIT: not counting the 60 days that preceded it)

he's learning to crawl already, mildly odoriferous

denimdestroyed - Those are looking pretty damn good! I'm quite jealous of your honeycombs since I bought mine rather baggy so it isn't as tight.

Exactly at 14 days so there isn't much wear yet but my wallet is definitely leaving a print now from sitting on ledges at school.

I think you look at it the wrong way, most of the pictures are posted, no matter how faded, as a picture diary. Not showing off how well worn they are (obviously).

Faded or Not, that is not the point.

nice---I'm a sucker for wallet wear in backpocket pics, especially in nudies----the way that (over)stitched logo comes apart is gnarly

shhh....

that's nice wear for 14 days.

DDML is right--the logo being worn down has a really nice effect. btw what if both pockets had damaged logos? would it look a bit weird, do you think? There's something in me that thinks the asymmetric look is cooler.

Denimdestroyedmylife - We all know you love your Nudies, but it's not exactly polite to come into every picture thread and post shots of YOUR jeans. Just my 2 cents.

Hey man, no hate intended.

As my motorcycle season starts, I hope I get some nice accellerated wear as well. :D

The OP and denimdestroyedmylife.. both of your jeans are stellar looking. I love to see the natural wear... can't wait to see your jeans in another 5 or 6 months.

Denimdestroyed, have you done anything to your jeans such as starching, or very hard wear? I've never seen RRDS wear in quite that quickly.
