18 oz selvage
denim to date
As a celebration of the genuine craftsmanship of high quality selvage denim we release this heavyweight masterpiece. Together with Kaihara Mills, we proudly present our heaviest denim option to date. An 18 oz. selvage denim option, spun, weaved and manufactured by Kaihara Mills in Japan.
When Maria Erixon first laid eyes and hand on the uneven selvage denim from Kaihara Mills, 13 years ago, she fell in love. The fabric became part of a dream and a love story, and the qualities of the Kaihara selvage denim is one of the reasons Nudie Jeans exists. We share the passion for the character and evolution of denim beauty. Something you learn to master over time.
Fulfilling Maria’s Dream
»Nudie Jeans is our dream about not having to compromise. We simply want to work with the world’s best denim fabrics. We encourage people to break in their jeans themselves, making them unique for every individual. Everyone carries their past within them, and eventually parts of your history become part of your legacy.«
— Maria Erixon
Steady Eddie Dry Heavy Japan Selvage
Our heaviest selvage option to date. The fabric is really soft, hence it will take some time to break in, but when it happens, you’ll reap the rewards. To make one pair we use 1 kilo of organic Turkish cotton, 2.6 meters of 18 oz Kaihara selvage*, 2.45 meters of thread, 6 rivets and 4 silver plated buttons.
The whole process takes 5–6 days including cutting, sewing and inspecting. This release is limited to 1000 pieces, and every pair is of course numbered.
*When making non-selvage jeans we use approximately 1.5 meters of fabricBUY THEM NOW

Great jackets – we got them: Fall 2014 outerwear focus
There’s a bunch of reasons to appreciate fall. One might be the crisp air, but our favorite reason is outerwear. Light and heavy jackets, parkas, duffels and leather jackets. Our range of jackets is more promising than ever. It’s not our fault that the temperature is dropping, but we do have the best cure for it. We love the season, and you should too. Check out our jackets.
Fashion and function reign supreme
After lots of research and digging we constructed the Karl Parka. A functional jacket packed with smart details. The inspiration was of course the classic M1948, fishtail parka.BUY
Post-war favorite of intellectuals
The duffel coat is rich with heritage and it’s been around since the early 1900’s. Our take on this classic is a tad shorter, we’ve improved the hood but kept the toggles.BUY
