Naked & Famous x Blue Owl 14.5oz Low Tension Unsanforized Weird Guy - Coming Soon!


Another project in the works and almost complete! Introducing the Naked & Famous x Blue Owl 14.5oz Low Tension Unsanforized Weird Guy. The fabric is a 14.5oz unsanforized selvedge that is woven at extremely low tension and has a beautiful dark indigo shade that will produce deep prominent fades. The low tension weave gives the fabric a great a texture, hairy surface and incredible fell. This is a limited production of about 50 pairs of denim and they are coming out of factory very soon!  More details to come upon arrival!

The fabric is woven in very small batches at a family-run mill in Okayama Japan. The owner of the mill is a master at his craft and creates denim for some of the most famous cult denim brands from Japan. Using tricks to manipulate his old shuttle looms, like irregular tension settings and alternating warp sizes, he creates denim that appears to be handmade.

Final touches are happening right now. They will ship out by mid-November and we will have in store around the end of the month.
