Nudie Party!!

Pictures from our Party!

As you all probably know by now we tend to do things in the most dramatic way possible, so when the option was either a punch bowl or a lemonade fountain filled with organic lemonade, brandy and lychee liquor you can guess which we chose! 

This is Zac. He came out for the day to talk nudie and eat Swedish meatballs. He's the rep for the brand out here, so he is the nudie man.

Meat balls! Swedish ones with Swedish lingonberry sauce.

And an Italian Lemon cake. It was SO delicious.

Here is our grand prize winner, Beau. This guy managed to wear his Regular Ralph dry Selvage into this state of disrepair within 9 months. Also, the gold frames are his story about how he got his jeans so worn so quickly. It took 4 frames!!!

Ed here traveled all over the world in his Finn's and managed to spill everything from Sake in Japan to Arrogance from Toronto all over them. Ed came in a very close second.

Don of Soma fame who now works at Gene has a very impressive pair. The dirt stains on his back pockets are actually coffee ground into the denim from making coffee....most likely for Lark staff that are powered by coffee and San Pellegrino.

Ravi had one of our favourite pair as well. He repaired the hems himself and wore them in really well. We've had some people ask about purchasing them, but no one has agreed to a price that I think Ravi would accept.....yet.

Since we are not the jacket haters we have been accused of being I am giving props where props are due. J.Jolly has worn his Conny nearly every day since buying it 3 years ago. His girlfriend is still with him despite the fact that he has only washed it 3 times without soap or detergent. In the words of Mr. Jolly himself "Real Rockers Fabreeze".

Natsumi would have most likely been a very strong contender if she were eligible to win. After three years she has managed to et the most amazing fade any of us have ever seen.

Zac washed his Regular Ralphs with coffee grounds to get a brown tone to his jeans. It's not something I would have thought of, but it looks really good

And this jeans here are the most significant to Lark. They are the first pair of Nudies to ever leave the store in the old location. They are also the jeans that Dane wore to build the new Lark. They are one wash Regular Ralph Dry Selvage, and the history of Lark is all over them. 

Well, that's the party. It was a lot of fun, and we are thankful to Want Agency for giving us Repair kits to give away as well as all kinds of other great nudie things.
