Nudie Jeans User Stories: Max Spallek

These jeans show that a pair can be used for a very long time, if you show them love and repair them when they need it. This pair found it’s way back to us, like little fish swimming back home to bring life to new fish.

The jeans I sent to you are about 7 and a half years old. I bought them here in Berlin and they were my second pair of dry denim. I remember when I saw my first pair of Nudie Jeans denim at a store, I was really impressed with the heaviness of the material. At first, breaking in the denim was a day job. During the first year, I brought them sailing in Greece. Lots of saltwater, ropes, fish and too much oily french fries. I really don't know how many times I washed them over the years, but during the first year there was no washing.

I really like the idea that it’s only you and your life that form the jeans, and that there are no stupid bleaching spots made by chemicals and so on.
