Special orders are still available, but only for a limited time as these are predicted to sell fast once they are officially released.

This denim will officially become available in November 2011 and special orders requests are now available. Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" Super Heavy Weight 32oz Selvedge Denim. Made in Kojima, Japan.

32oz unsanforized raw selvedge denim. Rope dyed in pure indigo.

The selvedge denim fabric was made on old shuttle looms in Okayama and it was so unbelievably hard to produce that the fabric will never be made again. The fabric uses a 1" x 1.5" yarn which is same thickness that is used to make carpet. The fabric ended up being so thick and heavy that it was impossible to sanforize, thus this denim model was only made as an unsanforized denim, so expect them to shrink down one size when washed. Once complete, a pair of denim weighs over 5 lbs.
