Nudie Jeans Robby denim jacket - Vintage black
This slim-fit denim jacket features an asymmetrical chest pocket and a slanted front yoke and is made from 50 percent pre-consumer recycled cotton and 50 percent organic cotton denim. This model also features two welt pockets in the front and extra room for movement. This denim jacket has been treated a little differently than the brand usually does: it hasn't been dried or rinsed. They soaked it in water and let it hang dry. The result is a wrinkled, slightly hairy denim with a dry hand and a duller, bluer hue. The advantage of a soak is that it generates a denim with almost dry run-in potential. While the indigo dye rubs off slightly on the white weft threads, the majority of the indigo bound to the surface remains on the warp threads. This is what gives the fabric a more velvety, duller and slightly bluer shade. During the soaking process, the cotton absorbs water, which causes the threads to swell and skew and increases the irregularity of the surface structure. This gives the soaked denim a slightly different aging property than dry denim. The wear will pronounce the irregularities, giving the denim jacket a more textured aging property. Since it is not rinsed and only allowed to absorb water, the starch remains on the denim. It is because of the starch that the denim generates sharp creases, and it is in these creases that the wear is most pronounced. The preservation of the starch is the main reason for the dry lapping potential of soaked denim.
Founded in 2001 by Marina Erixon, the Swedish denim brand is known for crafting time-defying jeans that look good and keep their shape, no matter what you put them through. Finishes are often artfully faded so they look like you’ve had and loved them forever. Contrast stitching, belt loops, five pockets, branded gold-toned hardware and the distinctive leather patch at back waistband are just a few of the details that make Nudie Jeans the cult brand they are today.
