Fade Friday – Naked & Famous Red Core Selvedge (Various Stages of Wear)

For just over a month, we’ve had a thread in our forum dedicated to the Naked & Famous Red Core Selvedge contest, a 6-month-long competition for the best fades worn in by owners of their Red Core Selvedge jeans.

To be perfectly honest, I was a bit skeptical when the Red Core jeans were announced as part of the Spring/Summer 2012 lineup…raw denim that fades from blue to red? That’s just weird.

But having perused the contest thread recently, I was amazed by the effect it created. However, it wasn’t just one pair of jeans that were impressive. The cool red fades were coming through on all the jeans that were posted!

As such, today’s Fade Friday is a bit different. Today we’re featuring the Red Core Selvedge jeans as a whole, instead of just one person’s pair. So let’s give it up for all the Red Core contestants on the forum!

    I don’t think I like it…

  • Nate

    I’m not much of a fan of this, but it is different. I can’t wait to see this same thing done with the Dirty Fades. I’ve been wanting to see those faded out since they came out.

    Its like ur having menstruation period and ur sanitary napkin isnt enough….

      It is like not having mastery of your native tongue. You should Byte your tongue.

    Is this the guy that posts pictures to denim forums every 5 minutes and documents how long he’s been wearing the jeans down to the second.

    It’s annoying as shit…

    • mister56

      From the guy that rips off other peoples information and post it as his own.

      laziness is what’s up.

      we’ve spent 6 years building a brand, writing copy, researching spec lists, and measuring every size of every shirt. coming along and swiping all that from our site is low.

      At least I make my own posts. You joined the Raw Denim community less that a year ago, dude your annoying shit.

        test

      • UGONNACRY???

        chill bro. are people not allowed to dislike these jeans because you measured your shirt? take up a new cause, these jeans really arent nothing to go to bat for.

    • UGONNACRY??

      i think the guy youre talking about was the only one in the contest.

  • jim

    this is very ugly in my opinion..yes it is innovative but it just doesn’t look good to me.

  • Grazfather x

    Looks pretty cool. Makes me want to try other colours. Brown (Dirty) or green would be sweet.

    • john dope

      GREEEEEEN fade or just green weft

      • Grazfather x

        green fade would be unreal

  • sHuz

    I’M IN LOVE. Waiting for mine to come in the mail :D.
