Swedish denim purveyors Nudie Jeans will soon stock a short run of just 500 pairs of their straight-leg Slim Jim jean in a unique "Post Recycle Dry" denim at Barneys New York. While the limited-edition style lacks the coveted selvage weft, the raw indigo dye creates a brilliant color sure to wear in well over time.

The "Post Recycle Dry" jean is made up of old Nudie Jeans denim, which is then cut, milled down to a pulp and blended with virgin organic cotton. Due to the recycling process and the material's subsequent natural irregularities, the denim takes on a distinctive slubby look up close, but from afar maintains a clean, vibrant blue hue. By dropping the signature bright stitching they've become known for over the past decade, Nudie keeps all attention on the denim itself.

Starting 12 January 2012, the Post Recycled Dry jean will be available in-store and online exclusively at Barneys for $215. For a better idea of how the recycled jeans are made watch Nudie Jeans' informative video.
