Blue Owl Will be Closed January 19-23


It may be a holiday weekend in USA this weekend, but more importantly it is the beginning of men's NYC fashion week for fall 2013. Blue Owl will be closed for a few days as we are headed to New York City to visit with many labels as we prepare for next season. Business will be back to normal starting January 24. Any orders placed over this week will be processed and shipped upon our return. We will be answering e-mails, but we apologize if we are slow to respond. We will be showing photos and details of several collections once we return as well.

3sixteen's indigo denim is a 14.5oz high slub selvedge denim which is custom woven exclusively for 3sixteen in Okayama, Japan. The fabric have been sanforized, skewed, and singed. Though the fabrics has been singed, it is still not heavily processed and the surface will have a hairiness and slub. What we like about it is that to the untrained eye, it looks clean and uniform (so it functions well as a dressier jean), but for someone who knows what they are looking for, they'll be able to spot some interesting facets about the textile.

Naked & Famous "Royalcast Broken-Twill" 12.5oz Selvedge Denim


The Naked & Famous "royalcast" broken-twill selvedge uses an indigo dye with a royalblue cast which will provide a vintage fade with a royalblue tint. The color is a reproduction 1960's indigo. This is actually the second generation of this denim, first generation being the greencast broken-twill from spring 2012. The Royalcast selvedge is available in Weird Guy (shown above), Skinny Guy, and Slim Guy. Weird Guy and Skinny Guy are now in stock, Slim Guy is available later this spring.

Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" Royalcast Broken-Twill 12.5oz selvedge denim in indigo. 100% cotton. Made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36. $155. For more information on the N&F weird guy royalcast selvedge, click here.

Naked & Famous "Skinny Guy" Royalcast Broken-Twill 12.5oz selvedge denim in indigo. 100% cotton. Made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36. $155. For more information on the N&F weird guy royalcast selvedge, click here.

Made with 12.5oz sanforized broken-twill selvedge with pink accents

Button fly, custom engraved N&F hardware.

Also, I want to point out how close the royalcast is compared to the natural organic indigo fabric that was released last month. Both colors are rich shades of indigo that will fade to high-contrast white and light blue combinages, and very refreshing going into spring.
