Naked & Famous x Big John x Rockin' Jelly Bean "Super Skinny Guy" 14.5oz RURI Denim Collaboration

The Naked & Famous x Big John collaboration is finally here, featuring artwork from Japanese pop artist Rockin' Jelly Bean. This is the first of Naked & Famous' collaborations that makes use of the Super Skinny Guy fit, with a very slim thigh and strong taper from the knee to the leg opening. Big John has provided their RURI denim for this release, a 14.5oz indigo dyed selvedge. The light color is created by dying the yarn for less time than a standard denim.

The leather patch features Rockin' Jelly Bean artwork with both Big John and Naked & Famous' names. Rockin' Jelly Bean has a sort of cult following in Japan, created through his mysterious persona and provocative art. When making public appearances he wears Mexican wrestling masks and always keeps girls at his side. His 60's and 70's pin-up style artwork with two girls, one representing Japan and the other Canada, is featured both on the leather patch, on the back pocket tag, and on a small poster that comes with the denim. Often his artwork can be seen fetching prices upwards of $100!
The jean itself is sewn by Big John, and uses their custom branded rivets and buttons. The inside of the waist band has tags for all three collaborators.

The selvedge line is white with blue and yellow highlights, in typical Big John style.
