Naked & Famous Broken-Twill Japanese Raw Selvedge Denim


Broken twill denim was first used by Wrangler in 1964 as a way to combat the twisting effect characteristic of regular twill denim (then considered a "fault" by many). Traditionally, twill is woven left or right handed so the denim eventually twists itself after washing due to the tension, which is why you see the outseam of some denim twisted to the front or back of the leg. Broken twill avoids this. Instead of the twill running to the left or right, broken twill contains no distinct direction and instead alternates right and left - the end effect resembles a random zig-zag pattern as seen above. Naked & Famous uses a beautiful broken twill Japanese raw selvedge denim available in two fits - "Skinny Guy" and "Weird Guy."
