Fade Friday – Naked & Famous Elephant 2 (8 Months, 2 Wash)

Elephant skin is tough stuff. In many parts of the large mammal’s body it can grow up to an inch in thickness to protect from lions, crocodiles, and other large predators.

It’s with this heritage in mind that Naked & Famous created their ultra-heavyweight Elephant 2 jeans. Made with 22oz. Japanese selvedge denim, this armor will stand up to the harshest dangers of the urban Serengeti.

For this week’s Fade Friday, we have  a pair of Elephant 2′s from forum user novega that have seen their fair share of action. After 8 months on the prowl, the inky dark indigo has given way to the high contrast fades normally reserved for jeans in higher price categories.

    Intense respect for being able to wear a pair of jeans that heavy, and the fades are coming along soooo nicely. By the way, that is a freakin’ awesome house. =D

    They look great! I picked a pair up of these in Weird Guy fairly cheap and find them really comfortable. The weight adds some heft but not overly so and they are easily as comfortable as my 21oz Iron Hearts and it’s a nice cut.

        i got some elephant 3′s. They are cool. The elephant 4′s just dropped. If i was you I would go true to size skinny guys, but realize they need to be worn low on the hips, and even the skinny size is a little baggy.

    Good to see that the crotch hasn’t really been torn or ripped. Usually after 6 months of hard and continuous wear, it gets ripped or torn. Goes to show how tough and durable 22 oz. denim fabric is.
