Nudie Jeans puts their unique spin on the classic khaki pants with the introduction of Nudie Jeans ‘Khakis’ in their Autumn Winter 2011 Collection. Sticking to their roots, their contemporary skinny and slim fit Khakis are a nod to their origins from fishermen on a small island off the Swedish west coast. My favourite fit from any jean brand is Nudies Thinn Finn & Grim Tim so I cant wait to take delivery of these chinos.
Steve Thompson has carved some favorite characters including Darth Vader, Chewbacca, C3PO, and a StormTrooper out of the tips of Crayola crayons. Looks amazing you have to admit.
