    From what hypebeasts thread says, these are made from naked & famous They fit pretty good from what I tried.
    Why would you trust hypebeasters? Did you not see the thread they have there?

    The address listed in the WHOIS records for theunbrandedbrand.com and nakedandfamousdenim.com is the same.

    I will have to check this out now. I'm curious about all this Naked and Famous stuff. I really like N&F denim, and I'll find out how this compares.

    i tried these on at UO today. the fits are nice. i can see the similarities to Naked and Famous, but the quality is noticeably less on the UO in both fabric and finish. i own four pair of Naked and Famous and was interested in seeing these, but was unimpressed when comparing them with the weird guys i wore to the store.

    the advantage to these at the price point is you can actually try them on if an UO is within driving distance. but if people are looking to get a pair of raw-ish jeans at a $78 + tax pricepoint, they are much better off searching B&S here if they know what measurements they're looking for.

    why not just spend $40 more and get real naked and famous jeans... then you can say you have a brand name jean!

    nice to know they fit the same as N&F. think i'll try some on just for that.

    edit: and my local UO doesn't even carry them. nothing but rows and rows of levi 510 and 511.

    I just picked up a pair of the slim straight and I love them. So far I like them more than APC's. They fit well, they look nice and they feel great. I also got them with my friends discount so they were 0nly $50.

    alright so admittedly I don't have the most experience with high end denim, but really all the hate behind these seems to be the fact that UO carries them... I have a pair slim straight in the normal indigo and they fit great and look pretty great. And also how can you compare these even to brands like Nudies and APC? What is the point? The jeans they sell are twice the price if not more.

    final nail in the coffin itt was that peoples interest was piqued only after hearing N&F was behind this.

    Stop caring so much about brands.

    so anyways anyone who is low on cash, and doesn't mind having to purchase something from twink outfitters should check out these jeans. Much, MUCH better than the Gap Selvedge by the way.

    also first post woo. long time lurker.

    I have a pair..material is great, but construction could be better. For the price though you really can't complain.

    still wearing these and they're my favorite pair of jeans, thick denim and they're holding up extremely well with about 6 months of wear

    no crotch rips or tears or any issues like that whatsoever
