Naked & Famous Denim – Video, Collaborations (Momotaro, Big John)

Naked & Famous Denim

Naked & Famous Denim

Analogous to Unbranded Naked & Famous provides quality raw denim at a reasonable price ($140 and up…given the craftsmanship and materials used).  Sourced from Japan and made in Canada, the story behind N&F’s name is that they were fed up with the expensive celebrity-endorsed raw denim in Hollywood and other metropolitan cities.  Inspired by society’s depiction of “beauty” in the 1950’s and thus utilized a retro “cherry blonde” image.

Combining various fabrics (from Kevlar denim to camel hair denim) and weaving techniques (right-hand twill, broken twill, etc.), they produce three men’s fits (skinny, slim, and tapered)

What’s really cool about these guys too is that they’ve recently launched a couple nice collab’s (which I’m always a sucker for).

First up is their first-ever collaboration with Momotaro (or more subtly Canada x Japan ;)) in Nov 2010
