Naked & Famous Fall 2012 Collection Denim Preview: Big Slub & Red Core

A few weeks ago we viewed the Naked & Famous fall 2012 collection. The entire collection is terrific as always and we will give a more thorough review soon, but we wanted to introduce 2 denims that really got our attention: Big Slub (above) and Red Core Denims.

The "Big Slub" denim was introduced in February 2008 as part of the Naked & Famous spring 2008 collection, which was also Naked & Famous' first season as a brand. It was offered in Slim Guy only and has was never made again, until now. Over the years, there have been numerous requests to remake the "Big Slub" denim and finally in fall 2012 the "Big Slub" returns and this time it will be available in both Weird Guy and Slim Guy. The fabric features an 18oz heavyweight selvedge with a tremendous amount of slub yarns which is the identical fabric used on the original release.

Above shows a brand new "Big Slub" Slim Guy featured with a well worn "Big Slub" Slim Guy that has been worn for about 1 year and washed at least 5 time. This denim will retail around $215 and expect it to land in stores in July. We will stock both Slim Guy and Weird Guy fits.

The other denim that really caught our eye was the Weird Guy "Red Core" Selvedge denim. This denim will be available in Weird Guy fit only. Above is a brand new Weird Guy "Red Core" denim with a well worn Weird Guy "Red Core" which has seen 5 months of wear and no washes.

The Weird Guy "Red Core" uses a 14oz selvedge made with red weft yarns overdyed in indigo which creates an indigo jean that will fade to red.

This denim will retail about $215 and we will stock in the Weird Guy fit. We anticipate delivery in very early fall, maybe as early as May.

This denim is why I love Naked & Famous. Their creativity and inventive nature sometimes creates pure art work.
