Swedish denim brand Nudie Jeans releases the first of four exclusive limited edition styles due for release over the next year. First up is the Grim Tim Stonemason Replica, a 100% organic 13.5 oz. Japanese selvage denim style, produced in a small limited run of 300. As the names suggest, Stonemason Replica is a style based on a real-life pair of broken-in jeans Nudie came across. The brand loved the result and story so much, they decided to study the jeans and replicate them. The result is one of Nudie's best replicas to date. Details include wear-and-tear, stitched repair patchwork and signature honeycombs on back legs. Each pair is numbered from 1 to 300 and is presented in its own recycled card box, held together with a Nudie natural leather belt and booklet detailing the journey behind the original user story.
The original jeans were a pair of Sharp Bengt handed in for repair at the Chapel Street store in Melbourne, Australia. Lee, the owner and stonemason by trade, wore his Bengts every day for nine months and the result proves that stonemasonry is ideal for breaking in denim, unlike any other trade. Lee's Sharp Bengts have seen many hours in the Repair Shop and the Nudie Jeans Repair Specialists have preserved this skillfully and beautifully. The jeans are now with Nudie and have joined other pairs of broken-in denim in the archive in the brand's hometown of Gothenburg.
