The reason why I'm selling them is actually because they're skinny, and I'm trying to phase out of that now lol. It doesn't have to do with the blow out, but I wanted to ask because I wasn't sure if there was a quick fix to it meaning it shouldn't lower the price too much.

And I do see clothes and shoes in all sorts of condition being sold here or on ebay. As long as you disclose stuff I don't think there is anything wrong.

I'll probably start looking at APC new standard.

Question a) It may sound rediculous, but APC made a business out of it. How about that!

And here a short film, open the page and scroll down: http://www.apc.fr/wwuk/denim-td400.html

 

Question b)That is a good question though, because I definitely wouldn't buy a worn out jeans. And I really wonder how many people would.

I've been wearing the Oni collabs for about a month. These are slow movers, or I'm a slow mover. Does anybody have any fade pics? I'm curious how they could look later on down the road. 1000

Hey guys, just purchased my first pair of raw denim in the WG LHTs. Pretty pumped about the pickup but after reading through this thread pretty religiously, I am still confused (maybe I am just slow) on how to treat my jeans right out of the box. Can't decide wether to pre soak (cold v. hot) or to just start wearing? Also, I'm about 5'11 with decently long legs and plan on cuffing just once. I have gathered that chainstitch hemming is the way to go but how do I know how much to hem? I know this is preference but is there any sort of guide out there? I have also seen reccomendation to just not hem and let them stack.

 

Apologies for all the rook questions, I just want to make sure I treat my first pair right. Thanks in advance guys.

Those are sanforized. No need to soak. As far as hem, its up to you.

Here is my experience with Naked and Famous denim. They all shrink a bit, some more than others. I would recommend a warm to medium hot soak. Most people say that sanforized denim will not shrink, that is not true at all. All new denim will shrink. So, an initial soak will not only rid the jeans of starch, (that aids in crotch blow outs) it will shrink them so you fade lines don't move on you later when you wash them. I personally only wash in the tub with little soap, and never put them in the dryer. Now, after the soak you can get them hemmed with fear. I hope this answered your questions. I speak from the knowledge I gained from having not soaked my Red Core denim then later having them shrink about 3% and in turn moving the honey combs up and the hem up.

There's some pics on superfuture if you want to dig through the N&F thread there.  I just got a pair of these too.  How have they broken in a month down the road?  Still slubby and really rigid or have they soften up some?

FTFY.

This man speaks truth. Soak your denim at least once off the bat. Let sizing settle.

They charge right? Or do they do it for free?

Mixed answers on the soaking issue. This is interesting.

 

What's the benefit of not soaking anyways?

I think it depends on the circumstance. He didn't have to pay cause the construction was shoddy. The threads around the knee started breaking away after maybe a month of wear. I believe the thread was too thin for the 22oz denim.

Introducing - - Naked & Famous x Blue Owl "Weird Guy" Japan Heritage 2 Unsanforized 14.5oz Selvedge Denim


We are excited to introduce the newest collaboration between Naked & Famous and Blue Owl, a limited production of 62 pairs. This project has been coined "Japan Heritage 2," because of its similarities to the original "Japan Heritage" denim released back in June 2011. The fabric is a 14.5oz unsanforized selvedge woven at extremely low tension. It has a beautiful dark indigo shade that will produce deep, prominent fades. The low tension weave gives the fabric a distinct texture, a hairy surface, and an incredible feel. This unsanforized fabric will shrink one full tag size (keep this in mind when you order).

Naked & Famous x Blue Owl "Weird Guy" Japan Heritage 2 Unsanforized 14.5oz Selvedge Denim
* The "Weird Guy" fit is slim with medium rise and tapers to the leg opening
* 14.5oz unsanforized selvedge with pink & white accents (expect to shrink one full size with the first wash/soak)
* 5 pocket, button fly closure
* Hidden selvedge coin pocket detail
* Custom designed patch. This cognac reddish-brown color is the first only time used by Naked & Famous
* 100% cotton
* Indigo
* Made in Canada

The fabric is woven in very small batches at a family-run mill in Okayama Japan. The owner of the mill is a master at his craft and creates denim for some of the most famous cult denim brands from Japan. Using artisan tricks to manipulate old shuttle looms, such as irregular tension settings and alternating warp sizes, he creates denim that appears as if it was handmade, though made through age-old shuttle looms.
