In my opinion the denim used in the Even Steven Dry is the best looking denim that Nudie has, even better than their selvedge denim because of the vertical fading, but it's not very heavy, only 12-12.5oz or so. They don't hold up all that well, but bear in mind that David wears his jeans quite hard, too. The color isn't that deep either, but still, it's a pretty nice pair of jeans.
Here's what David has to say about his jeans:
I've been using my Stevens since November 16th with the exception of about a week. They've gotten wet from below the knee down. That happened when I got into a speedboat that was gonna take us from the island of Koh Maak to the smaller island Koh Wai.
I'm a little dissapointed with the quality of these jeans, mostly because of how quickly the crotch got busted. Of course its not a really heavy denim and it's nice to get such results in such a short period of time but still I'd rather get really deep whiskers and honeycombs over a longer period of time than have a pair of jeans that aren't coloured deep enough.
They've had to put up with the mildest winter ever in Stockholm, many long walks along the beaches of Thailand, about an hour of elephant trekking in the djungle of Koh Chang, exploring the djungle of Koh Wai by foot, a motorbike ride around Koh Maak (about half of the island's roads are paved, the rest is sand and dry mud, it's really dusty) , many long walks along the heavy traffic in Bangkok and of my everyday sweat and body. I passed out in these jeans about five times after a few really wet nights...
