Naked & Famous Spring 2013 Denims: First Arrival (Suvin ELS Cotton, Natural Indigo Organic)


Just arrived is our first shipment from the Naked & Famous Spring 2013 line-up. Today we introduced two of our favorites in the collection, the Weird Guy Suvin ELS Cotton and the Weird Guy Natural Indigo Organic.  Both of these denims are limited productions.

Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" Suvin ELS Cotton 13oz Selvedge Denim. 100% cotton. Made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36. $160. For more information on the N&F weird guy Suvin ELS, click here.

Suvin is an Indian cotton with an extra long staple (ELS) and is considered the finest cotton being produced in India today. "Suvin" variety cotton was first released in 1979 by cross breeding Sujatha (Indian cotton) with St. Vincent (Sea-Island cotton). This special breed is very difficult to grow, and this type of ELS cotton is primarily used in expensive linens and luxury fabrics, not in denim, until now! What makes Suvin special is its extra long fiber that is extremely strong and durable yet very soft.

It is a 13oz weight offered only in the Weird Guy model, a one-time only limited production of about 1000 pairs. The fabric has an irregular weave, similar to the low tension weave denim from the fall 2012 collection.  Love the extra thick buffalo leather patch!

Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" Natural Indigo Organic 13oz Selvedge Denim. 100% cotton. Made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36. $150. For more information on the N&F weird guy Natural Indigo Organic, click here.

Natural Indigo Organic Selvedge. Made using both organic cotton and organic natural dye. When using "real" natural indigo, the fabric is very streaky and the color of the warp yarns will not match. When rope dying using a natural indigo, even multiple dips will not get a consistent color, thus every denim will have slight variations in color and each denim will be different. The color is amazing! It is a beautiful light indigo and a weight of only 13oz making it the perfect denim going into spring. This is also a very limited one time production of only around 300 pairs.
