Nudie Jeans, one of The Style Examiner’s favourite denim brands, have recently unveiled ‘Post Recycle Dry’, a limited edition of their Slim Jim style, as a US exclusive for department store Barneys New York.
‘Post Recycle Dry’ is produced in fabric recycled from old worn Nudie Jeans denim. Together with ISKO™, an international leader in denim manufacture, a processing technology was developed where old denim is cut, milled down to a pulp, and then blended with virgin organic cotton to generate a new fabric. The result is a distinctive, slubby denim with a soft feel (the slubs being a consequence of the natural irregularities of the recycled yarn). The straight-fit jeans model features five pockets, zip fly, tonal stitching throughout, and organic trims.
With only 500 jeans produced worldwide in this fabric, each style is uniquely customized with a numbered limited 3dition pocket lining. Slim Jim ‘Post Recycle Dry’ is available exclusively at Barneys and is priced at USD215.
