The world's heaviest jeans to be released again on Friday, April 29th - Naked&Famous 32oz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I love the brand Naked & Famous, I truly think its one of the finest brands for a very reasonable price of around $200/pair. However they are again releasing one of the finest and heaviest  pair of jeans - beautiful 32oz Japanese made selvage. Only 100 pairs of the Indigo and 50 pairs of the black would be ever made.  Here's the official write up from Tate&Yoko:

 

The heaviest denim in the world.

 

Only 100 pairs of these were made. 

 

Fabric was woven in Okayama on vintage shuttle looms and was unimaginably hard to produce. It uses a size 1 x 0.5 thick yarn which is the same used to make heavy carpet or sailboat sails. Sewing these jeans required 3 sewing operators to build 2 pairs per day.

 

The "Weird Guy" is a slim fit that tapers from the knee down. Medium rise.

 

32oz Super heavyweight indigo selvedge denim.

 

100% Cotton

 

Zipper Fly

 

Hand-Sewn 15oz Super heavyweight cowhide leather patch

 

Japanese fabric; Made in Kojima, Japan;

I thought that Brandon has lost his head when he made these things, but then, I guess that it's fun just to see whether or not it can be done.

I thought they did that though when they made these the first time? I was under the impression that these would be scratch and sniffs and fade to dirty, deal breaker, for-sure.

 

Honestly though, being one who truly prefers heavyweight denim, having 4 pairs of IHs from 18 ounce unsanforized, 2 pairs of 21 ounce sanforized, and also a pair of 22 ounce unfanroized that after shrinkage probably weigh in at about 24 ounces or so...why are these things actually made, other than to support a reputation that they continually try and shut down, that being that they are a gimmick brand?

 

It takes a year total for all parts to be made, and then pieced together and created into a final product from startt to finish, for every single Rolex watch to be made, this is impressive due to dedication and time spent on every single piece to ensure quality. These are product specs that are impressive and interesting and instill desire amongst consumers.......But these specs might as well all be deleted and just be replaced with the words, "No shit", these arn't product specs, this is necessary labor to make ridiculous clothing that no looms in the world were ever made to be able to make.

 

If these are product specs, I want all my 3 pack calvin cliens to break down exactly how they were woven, every rotation of that projectile. Or Jordan boxes to have break downs of how their under age and under paid labor force glued each piece together. Cuz these are things that are obvious. Not specs. Specs would be quality traits that these possess implemented during production, and besides the fact that they took about 3 sqaure yards of 32 ounce denim fabric sheets to make a pair, they don't really offer much....my bad 15 ounce cowhide patch...missed that.

 

Sorry....I feel like i'm just being a hater here, I just don't see any reason why these things exist other than products for the brand to advertise that they offer, purely made for advertising purposes, and the 25 or so idiots out there that think they're gonna enjoy their time trying to break these things in. But hey different strokes, different folks....

Will have to wait and see how the product turns out. I have never been disappointed with a Made in Japan product of this calibre.

As an FYI, I collect watches.....and Rolex is mass produced product for individuals who wants to show they have a Rolex. I would rather prefer JLC,Zenith, IWC or Vecheron and even a co-axial Omega to a Rolex. This is in terms of workmanship. That said I love my SS Daytona, Blue/Black GMT and the green Sub.smile.gif

Cheers

Um, thanks for sharing I guess, even though this has nothing to do with super heavyweight jeans.

The regulars in there would love to see pics of your watches.
