Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" Japan Heritage 14oz Selvedge Denim

Japan Heritage is back! The Japan Heritage denim was first released in June 2011 and was one of the most popular denims Naked & Famous had released to date. The current production run was made in limited quantity and is available in Weird Guy only. As for the name "Japan Heritage", here is what Naked & Famous has to say....

" We call this denim 'Japan Heritage' because, in our opinion, it is a fabric that represents Japan's perception of what is special about vintage denim. The fabric is special because it is the opposite of mass produced denim. It's shuttle woven on a dangerous low-tension setting that creates loom chatter; it uses a slubby/bumpy yarn and has an irregular warp size, which create a beautiful and random texture and appearance." - - Naked & Famous

The Japan Heritage denim uses a 14oz sanforized raw Japanese selvedge using slub yarns of different thicknesses giving an unbalanced vintage feel. During fabrication, the yarns are dyed in pure indigo and as the yarns have different thicknesses the indigo will penetrate the yarn in different amounts creating tremendous depth and variation in the color. The shuttle looms are set at low tension so the denim is not packed as tightly when woven, which is a common characteristic in Japanese cult denim brands. The result is a a fabric with a soft feel and lustrous texture and denim that will fade to different shades of blue in different portions of the jean.

Other details include the 5 pocket design, button fly, and custom engraved buttons.

14oz selvedge made in Japan with red & white accents.
