The law suit was over the red tab on the back pocket, the pocket stitching, and SDA's case the patch design as well. SDA's details are all in homage to vintage Levi, but not too close to a reproduction anymore. I think that it has given SDA more unique character as a brand in the long run.

Is there going to be another stock intake of the BOM004, and is it possible to order a size 35? Thanks.

Sorry, there is no plan to remake this collab.

Despite fall still being a way down the road, we here at Blue Owl have our eyes on a number of the Naked & Famous Fall/Winter 2014 items and we wanted to share some of our favorites. Once again, Naked & Famous has put out yet another fantastic lineup packed with their trademark innovation and creativity. While you won't be seeing many of these products until July, we wanted to give you an early look at what to expect from one of the most popular denim labels out there.
1199964
First up to bat is the 4th generation of the ever-popular Elephant series! The Elephant 4 is a heavy, tough denim weighing in at 22oz. It has an indigo warp and black weft with contrast stitching throughout.
1199965
This is one of the more unique pieces this season: A natural indigo dyed warp with kakishibu dyed weft! Kakishibu is the tannin juice of an unripe Japanese persimmon fruit, which is fermented for more than a year and before being used for traditional dying methods. The denim is a comfortable 11oz, with clean white selvedge.
1199966
Here we have version 2.0 of the popular Pomegranate selvedge! This time N&F chose to use a brown weft while using the same sturdy 14oz denim.
1199967
Two new chino colors for the Fall/Winter season: Burgundy and Wine! They're both amazing, vibrant colors that continue the chino tradition of 12oz fabric and clean red selvedge.
1199968
Stretch cords in both Skinny and Super Skinny Guy fits! We'll be picking up the amber and burgundy colorways. They're both striking colors that will work perfectly for this soft, 11oz fabric.
1199969
Last, but not least, is another crazy-color weft! The 13oz Twisted Candy Weft Selvedge turned out even better than we expected, and is definitely one of our favorite pieces this season.
post #2347 of 2437

kakishibu and twisted candy are both very cool! how is the twisted candy achieved?

We've got red, and we've got blue, and now green weft has arrived from Naked & Famous! Another great addition to the weft series, the green weft is a nice light weight for summer. The subtle color that pokes through the warp threads give the denim an interesting look from afar, and a cool noticeable detail up close.
IMG_7927+copy.jpg
Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" Green Weft 12.5oz Selvedge Denim. 100% cotton, made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36, 38. $158. For more information, click here.
IMG_7931+copy.jpg
Black leather patch with Naked & Famous' iconic pop art logo.
IMG_7935+copy.jpg
This picture gives a great idea of how the denim looks. A deep indigo with subtle hints of green throughout.
IMG_7953+copy.jpg
This is the most color accurate shot of the weft. Chain stitched hem, and standard white/red selvedge with hints of the green weft.
IMG_7920+copy.jpg
Also new is the Skinny Guy fit of the heavy soft! This denim is perfect for those who like comfortable denim but want that great heavy weight.
IMG_7914+copy.jpg
Naked & Famous "Skinny Guy" 19oz Heavy Soft Selvedge Denim. 100% cotton, made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36. $190. For more information, click here.

speaking of the pomegranate selvedge...has anyone ever come across any fade pics?  i wore mine a lot last winter but they haven't gotten a ton of wear this year.  the creases and whatnot have set in but they haven't really faded at all.  i don't think the synthetic pomegranate dye fades.

Naked and Famous has released a new version of their Slow Vintage hoodie: one made of a blend of natural fibers. The fabric is made on the same Tsuri Circular Knitting machines from the 1800's as the other Slow Vintage hoodies. The vintage machines knit the fabric very slowly, but this results in a light and soft fabric that has a totally unique characteristic. Naked and Famous "Slow Vintage" Natural Fiber Hoodie. 51% wool, 29% cotton, 20% linen. $245. Fabric made in Wakayama, Japan, sewn in Canada. For more information click here.
IMG_6322+copy.jpg
The fabric is very fuzzy and soft on the surface, and can only be expected to become more soft. The combination of materials leads to a best-of-both-worlds situation: you get the warmth of wool, the breathability of linen, and the soft comfort of cotton.
IMG_6332+copy.jpg
We're very happy with the fit on these hoodies. Not only are they made of a comfortable and unique fabric, but they are stylishly slim with great proportions. These hoodies work great on taller guys.

Tsuri circular knitting machines, also known as a vintage loopwheel machines, were originally used in the early 1800's by Italian and French garment manufactures. Similar to the vintage denim shuttle looms abandoned by USA garment manufactures in the early 1900's, tsuri circular knitting machines were also abandoned and sold to make way to more modern mass production machinery. By 1910, Italian and French manufactures began selling their equipment, many of which purchased by Japanese factories. Only a few vintage tsuri circular knitting machines are still being used today as Japanese artisans continue the traditions of quality make with the use of these machines once thought of as being obsolete.

In Wakayama, one factory owns 100 of these precious machines and 50 still operate. Over the years, the factory's artisans made adjustments to the machines allowing them to knit heavier fabrics suitable for modern sportswear such as sweatshirts, parkas, and other knits. The machines take up to 1 hour to make only a meter of fabric, in fact, they move so slow that they can be stopped by hand and thus very labor consuming. This slow operating technique, "slow vintage" as referred by the Wakayama artisans, produces a fabric with far less tension in the yarn resulting in an incredible soft feel that cannot be replicated on modern day equipment.

has anyone tried this? how is it?

Check out the texture in that fabric! New from Japan Blue, we have natural indigo dyed shorts that have some amazing character. The changing textures in the fabric create a camo pattern, while the dark indigo dye of the fabric makes the pattern subtle from afar. The shorts are a great above-the-knee length with a pretty slim leg opening.
IMG_7964+copy.jpg
Japan Blue "Textured Camo" Shorts in Indigo. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28, 30, 32, 34. $150. For more information, click here.
IMG_7982+copy.jpg
The texture is created by changing the weave of the fabric continuously. Definitely one of the more fascinating fabrics we've had in the store.
IMG_7999+copy.jpg
Zip fly and wood pattern button. Lined waist band. The cotton throughout the short is very soft and comfortable.

Momotaro has brought us another great collection this season with three new fabrics! A lightweight 10oz Indigo/Indigo, a vibrant 13oz Cobalt Blue Weft, and a hefty 18oz'er are all amazing additions to Blue Owl. To top it all off, we have two brand new fits from Momotaro: Tight Tapered, and Natural Tapered. The Tight Tapered is a very modern and slim tapered fit, the first from Momotaro. Natural Tapered is a great fit for bigger guys, with a roomy top block and a decent taper through the leg. Check out the details on these amazing jeans below!
IMG_8014+copy.jpg
Momotaro "Tight Tapered" Cobalt Blue Weft 13oz Raw Selvedge Denim - Model 0305-14. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36. $295. For more information, click here.
IMG_8020+copy.jpg
The new season comes with a new patch. Dark brown soft suede, with the traditional Momotaro brand. You can see the colorful weft poking through the warp in this shot.
IMG_8024+copy.jpg
This shot gives you the best idea of the fabric. It is a dark indigo denim that gives hits of its bright weft through the surface of the fabric. The hue that it creates is extremely unique.
IMG_8036+copy.jpg
Here you can see the beautiful cobalt blue of the weft. Against the dark indigo of the warp, the color really pops.
IMG_8040+copy.jpg
Momotaro "Tight Tapered" Lightweight Indigo/Indigo 10oz Raw Selvedge Denim - Model 0305-97. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36. $295. For more information, click here.

IMG_8067+copy.jpg
The dark suede patch makes for a very clean look on this heavy denim.
IMG_8070+copy.jpg
As Momotaro's first heavyweight, we are very impressed with the quality and feel of the fabric. Using 100% American cotton, the fabric has a nice sturdy feel that is slightly irregular but still very smooth.
IMG_8075+copy.jpg
Custom branded copper rivets and the coin pocket selvedge that peaks out are only a few of the Momotaro details we love.
IMG_8095+copy.jpg
Pink selvedge and pink inseam in homage to the peach from the Momotaro folklore story. You can see the thickness of this denim on the selvedge as it stands away from the weft.

We've got some great new pieces from Eternal this season! To start off, we have received two styles of an indigo patchwork denim jacket that will really blow your socks off. This is one of the coolest, craziest jackets we've ever had in the store. Eternal has also just come out with their newest T-shirt fabric, an extremely breathable linen that will be perfect for summer. Check out the pictures and details below!
1219005
Eternal Indigo Patchwork Coverall Jacket. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes Medium, Large, X-Large. $295. For more information, click here.
1219006
Both indigo jackets are made out a 10oz denim that has been dyed with three different indigos.
1219007
The creative denim combination on this jacket works surprisingly well with almost everything we paired it with. The light weight of the jacket meant that it will be comfortable in the summer, but the fit allows room for layering.
1219008
Eternal Indigo Patchwork Blazer. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes Medium, Large, X-Large. $295. For more information, click here.
1219009
The blazer version of the patchwork jacket is a little less crazy than the coverall, with a bit of symmetry and a cleaner look. The yoke of the shirt has a soft twill fabric sewn on the inside.
1219010
Both pieces use large fisheye buttons and triple needle construction throughout.
1219011
The Organic Linen tees have a great sturdy feel to them, but the material is incredibly breathable when worn. These will be wonderful pieces for wearing during the summer, or for layering once fall arrives.
1219012
Eternal Organic Linen T-Shirt in Black. 100% linen, made in Japan. Sizes Medium, Large. $90. For more information, click here.
1219013
