Naked & Famous Indigo Weird Guy Paper For Hypebeast

Canadian denim brand, Naked & Famous, continues to further their well-sustained reputation as one of the most innovative denim brands in today’s market. Just over two weeks ago, the Montreal-based brand released the Indigo Weird Guy Paper jeans made exclusively for online fashion hub, Hypebeast.

Based upon some mixed feedback on previous N&F collaborations, we know some of you may be skeptical of this model. You may be not only questioning what paper has anything to do with raw denim, but also how this denim is really different from their standard Weird Guy Indigo.

While we’ll ultimately leave the latter for you to decide, after some research we discovered the collab simply takes its name from the material it’s constructed of. In order to promote eco-friendly and ethical production, Naked & Famous utilized a paper denim composed of a weave of paper, fibre and resin.

Whilst we’re still unsure how this weave will wear, fade or stand the test of time, one thing that we are sure of is that N&F is still exploring foreign territories and pushing their own creative boundaries.

For those unfamiliar with N&F‘s fit, the denim boasts their signature Weird Guy cut, or a variation of a regular tapered fit. Built with a little more room in the top block for comfort, it also has a lower rise thus allowing the jeans to be worn lower on the hips.

    So it’s basically made of viscose? But it doesn’t say that? Or what?

      Yeah….they (N&F) are probably just taking advantage of the fact that not everyone knows that particular fabric name. Instead we’re gonna have people walking around this summer in “innovative paper jeans”.

      • PederBohme

        My point exactly. In my oppinion that’s just disrespecting the customer. But I bet it’ll work like a charm for N&F.

          They are made out of paper. The use paper yarn. Basically they take a fine paper, and twist it to a fine yarn. Paper yarn is nothing new, what’s new is using it to make Selvedge Denim.

          Before you start acting like a know it all and jump to conclusions you should consider doing a bit more research.

      Sorry, I tried posting but i guess it didnt work. I have a few problems with these jeans. 1. since they are made of paper and not 100% cotton, how durable are they? are they solid feeling? 2. since they are made of paper, how often can you wash them? is there a limit, will they break down?
