Naked and Famous, Japanese Denim

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
UCLA is engrossed with students from Asia/Pacific, here for the sciences/medicine/etc...

Many are Japanese, and often are seem wearing some high-end designer labels as-well as lesser known brands--which seem to resurface in the mainstream US culture down the road.

I've noticed many wearing some fantastic denim samples, and just recently, I met a student who considers himself a "denimhead". He swears by a Canadian label called "Naked and Famous", cheaper than APC retail and constructed from high-end Japanese Selvedge denim...

His own jeans looked f**king gorgeous, insanely rigid...21oz!

Any thoughts on this brand? I know very little other than his strong position for the denim

There's also a huge thread about it over on SUFU.

And I think you can find it on sale if you Google it. I may have posted a couple womens sale items in the deals sticky.

I got a pair of the big slub and while the construction is nowhere near as nice as, say, pure blue the denim is really beautiful and unique.

So they've finally released the 21oz...

N&F are super streaky looking. I hope they make the same slims for women but less streaky. Bleh!

I love them

I've had APC and Nudie jeans before which are great denim, but the black naked and famous skinny guys i got about 2 months ago are my all time favorite jeans! A.P.Cs new cures get to big in the crouch and hips, and Nudies cant seem to find the perfect hem. That asian guy is right, they are perfect! i think everyone should give them a go. Get your normal waist size.

Personally, I will never buy Naked and Famous.

I met the owner a while back and talked to him for a good few hours, a very knowledgeable guy. I personally own 3 pairs, and have nothing but good things to say. A lot of the denim used are the exact same denim fabrics used in other high end Japanese vintage style denim companies. What you have to keep in mind is N&F isn't trying to be Samurai. They are not trying to be vintage repo. They are modern fits with high end vintage style fabrics. No fuss, no muss. For the price you can do no wrong.

wow maybe i will have to support a canadian company good thing i didnt buy the nudies on yoox.

I have never boughten a pair of raw jeans, so if i were to and iam like a size 30-31 sometimes fit 29's. What size should i get if i were looking at naked and famous weird guy. another question. it says the leg opneing is 15" wtf does that mean by the pictures it shows that its a pretty skinny opening.
