I don't get very excited about LookBooks these days. Even though ATG is somewhat lumped into this whole menswear/style/fashion/nonsense world, you'd be hard-pressed to find too much of it here on a regular basis (I'll leave that to fellas like Michael and Lawrence). That being said, I did find myself getting excited over the new Nudie lookbook. Yup, Nudie, as in Swedish denim we've all come to love, hate, care about or forget. As a company they're nothing new, but as a line, they seem to really be finding a groove with their '11 Fall/Winter collection.

The best part of the line might just be their introduction of the slim khaki program. I've been wearing Nudie since Traffic, in LA, was the only shop on the west coast carrying them -- back when the Slim Jims were the tightest things I could ever picture myself wearing (the start of a slippery slope). I still have a few pairs in heavy rotation. Check the brand out if you haven't in a while. It's not for everyone, with your double monks and tailored Cucinelli blazers, but for the everyday-easy-clean-fitted, it's looking more the part. A few highlight-teasers after the jump
