Nudie Jeans is releasing a line of a line of men’s khakis for fall/winter 2011, inspired by the history of sailors off the Swedish coast—after all, khaki’s and jeans, as Nudie puts it, are two branches of the same tree.
“Back in the day when sailors began sewing their own “jeans” fromsailcloth, khaki was the dominating shade. Over the years, these pantsdeveloped into what we know today as jeans.” —Nudie Jeans
They’ll release four khaki fits (working off the existing tried-and-true Nudie Jeans fits), Khaki Tight, Khaki Slim, Khaki Straight and Khaki Regular. And while you may think of khakis as a generic beige, they are also offering a range of colors, from blue to black and a gradient of light and darker hued khaki fabrics. With Nudie’s reputation of making solid, stylish, and eco-responsible jeans & poducts, we’re pretty sure these are going to be wildly successful.
