Worn-Out Projects X Nudie Jeans Grim Tim Dry Dirt Organic

Buddy Jeremy sended me pics from his beautiful worn-out Nudie Jeans. It was the first Grim Tim made by the Swedish denim brand. When they launched this new model it wasn’t immediately so popular, but now, a few years later, it’s one of their best sellers. Check out this great worn-out pair with a lot of repairs and different blue indigo shades. Well done Jeremy!

Worn-Out Projects: Butcher Of Blue Jeans by Bob Rijnders

During the Blueprint event – Amsterdam Denim Days – Bob Rijnders showed his latest collection of his brand Butcher of Blue. Next to jeans Bob developed some crazy tops as well. He also did a collab with Armor Lux. Bob has one of the best denim stores in Holland, located in the pittoresque Hoogland village near Amersfoort. About two years ago Bob decided to launch his own denim. He made something unique, something special as the Butcher of Blue. One of the best details is the hook on the back pocket which become more visible after hard wearing. Of course Bob also put a lot of sweat, tears and rock & roll in his first pair ever made. The result is extremely nice! This is how every denimhead should treat his jeans. It has an amazing fading and is patched and repaired a lot of times in the two years of non-stop wearing. Well done Bob! ”In the land of the pig, the butcher is king!”.

Lee Jeans 101 Z 1966 X Worn-Out Projects

Pol Houtkamp from Lee Jeans (NL) is besides a big denim addict a huge fan of the country life of France. Especially the authentic way of making wine is one of his favourite highlights from this beautiful country. That’s how he came up with the super cool idea to give one of these wine growers a dry Lee Jeans 101 Z from 1966, which he could wear during his daily wine job. The wine grower promised to give the jean back after a couple of years. Now after more than 4 years of intensive wear Pol got his jean back and result is one of the best! The wine grower isn’t someone who’s into fashion, so he used the jean like they did in the past. He worn he jean during his job, get dirty, washed it, put it on, do his job, dirty, washed it and so on…No rules that you don’t may wash your jean for at least 6-8 months. The result speaks for it self. As the jean was too long for the wearer he folded it to the inside, instead of turning it up. These different effects of blue color shades are one of my personal highlights of this worn-out Lee denim!

Many thanks Pol for sharing this 4 year long project! Viva la Fance!
