As it seemed to grab headlines when we announced the selection of denim being made available by Naked and Famous in their Spring/Summer 2013 lineup, this post is dedicated into getting a little more in detail with the Rainbow Core 14 Oz. selvedge jean. Available in the WeirdGuy fit, this jean is much like the Red Core in that it fades to a different color rather than the typical blue/white fades, only where the Red Core went to red, the Rainbow fades to exactly that. To get a proper idea of what the jean will look like, we’ve gotten in touch with founder Brandon Svarc who sent us a few pictures of the denim post-fade.
While your own fades with this jean will all be a little different, this should give a good overview of what the Rainbow core really looks like, and just might motivate you to push on and get working on a pair of your own. They’re available only at Barney’s for the time being, but we’re sure that over time they’ll become widely available.
