Feel Good In Nudie Jeans

Posted by Justin Thompson on

We are very proud to be an official Nudie Jeans retailer through our Saskatoon location. Nudie is a Swedish company with a passion for extremely high quality denim products that are manufactured with a focus on environmental and social responsibility. 

Social Responsibility: Treating People Right

Labour in the garment industry has often been a controversial topic and Nudie strives to become a leader in improving these practices. Regular supplier audits and a goal of 100% transparent production keep the company accountable to consumers. Detailed supplier info is available on their website, and most facilities are in EU countries with good working conditions and strong environmental codes. 

Environmental Responsibility

Nudie also aims to lead the garment industry in reducing the environmental impact of the clothes we wear. According to waterfootprint.org it takes an average of 8,000L of fresh water to produce one pair of traditional jeans. By sourcing organic cotton, Nudie is able to cut down on groundwater consumption by 91% and primary energy demand by 61%.

The water used in washing and dying Nudie Jeans is then recycled and reused. In less regulated countries, manufacturers often release synthetic indigo dye right back into the water supply where it can pollute already limited supplies of freshwater. This focus on sustainability continues through all aspects of the company from re-selling second hand jeans to recycling worn out products.

More Information

One blog post is hardly enough to scratch the surface of the business philosophy of Nudie Jeans let alone their culture of custom denim. That's why our team works hard to be as knowledgable about our products as possible, so stop by anytime to try on a few pairs and learn more.

Until then, we encourage you to browse the links below for more about Nudie's commitment sustainability and custom denim culture.

In-store Pick Up - A Handy Tool

Posted by Margaret DeJager on

To make it easy for you to ensure that you get the size and style of product you need, we offer an option to reserve items for pickup through our online store. This service is provided free of charge and can save shipping costs particularly for people who live outside of Saskatoon, but will be coming into the city at a later date.

How It Works:

During the online checkout process you will have the option to choose to have the item shipped to your address or reserve to pickup at our Saskatoon retail location. 

 

 

When you select Saskatoon In-Store Pickup, your order will be packed up and set aside for you at our Saskatoon store. Once you receive an email confirmation that your order is ready, you can then come into the store at your convenience to pickup your items. 

When you come in to pick up your order, just talk to the retail staff at the front desk and they will bring your order to you. You are more than welcome to have a friend or family member pick up for you, by providing the first and last name that the order was placed under. There is no time limit as to how long we will hold your order for you, however we only offer exchanges within 90 days of the sale.  

If you have any more questions about the in-store pickup option, please don't hesitate to contact us at store@hardpressed.ca

Nudie Jeans: Your Second Skin

Posted by Justin Thompson on

Attention denim lovers: Nudie Jeans are now available at our Saskatoon retail location. Nudie is a Swedish company with a passion for high quality denim products that are manufactured with a sense of environmental and social responsibility.

Custom Fit: Eleven Different Cuts

Wearing a perfect pair of jeans is a special feeling, and the name "Nudie" comes from the idea that these jeans will fit so well that they become like your second skin. This process starts with finding the perfect cut for you, so Nudie offers a range of eleven different options to satisfy even the pickiest wearers.

Custom Fade: Make Your Mark

Great style should also tell your story. Nudies are designed to be worn in and shaped by your particular lifestyle. The longer you wear the jeans, the more character and attitude the denim will acquire. Depending on your break in journey, every fade or crease eventually contours uniquely to your body to tell a story of how you've worn them. The details of that story are up to you.
