Vetiver preforming Wonder Why live at the Nudie Jeans Concept Store in Gothenburg.
Back in June of 2011, Andy and Daniel of Vetiver swung by our Concept Store in Gothenburg to spread that feelgood rock & roll vibe to our customers and us. The guys performed a semi-acoustic set that stunned us all.

In the 90’s he had long hair and was a singer in a band. Today, Martin Sandklef is our IT Coordinator. We asked him what’s really good at the moment.
– I just discovered this website with Chinese indie bands called Far Out Distant Sounds. In a way you get thrown back to the 90’s. These bands are breathing new life into a scene that’s been kind of lost to me for some time. There’s so much charm in this, and it makes me want to re-discover bands like Sonic Youth and Afghan Whigs.
– On a different note, I’m very happy about my new apartment. I’m going all in flea market.

Since the 1930’s people have been debating whether zippers are superior to buttons as a method of keeping the fly shut. For the denim puritan, there is no alternative: there should be buttons, period. And although it’s more historically accurate, the zipper has won a lot of people over. But they both have pros and cons.
Buttons are easy to undo, but you’re going to need two hands to shut it, which might be too much effort for some people. A button almost never breaks, and if it does you only hammer in a new one.
The zipper is effective; you can pretty much operate it with only one hand. On the other hand you run a risk of the zipper getting stuck, and you run the risk of getting caught. The name zip fly comes from the sound or “zip” the slider makes when you open or close the zipper. The first zipper flies appeared in 1926 and have been the most popular fastener ever since. The world’s first zipper was made in the U.S. back in 1891, and was aptly named “The Original”.
But what determines which fastener we put on your Nudie jeans? We let the fit decide.
Our tight or slim fits all have zippers since we want to create a flat front look. Buttons would make the fly pop out too much and create a gap. Buttons would make these fits really uncomfortable. See all our zip fly jeans here: http://nj.io/VLgP
The regular fits however all feature a button fly. The reason for that is all about esthetics. The effects wearing and tearing creates on the fabric of the fly facing becomes more interesting and beautiful than with a zip fly. Go here to see all our button fly jeans: http://nj.io/tGD7
Scissors, pattern pieces, shreds of fabric and tiny little sketches are scattered all over the place. At a first glance it might seem like chaos, but the people at Product Development knows where they keep their stuff. Their main objective is to create future Nudie Jeans collections.
Eleven people butting heads, finding inspiration, drawing sketches, making patterns and concept for prints. Pulling hair over product samples not meeting expectations, killing darlings and meeting with suppliers that can turn their ideas into reality.
At the end of the process, after months meetings and twisting and turning; after everybody’s had their say, the people at Product Development are happy with the result and move on to the next collection.
