It’s our fit of the week again over at Hall of Fade. This week we’re showcasing a pair of Naked & Famous jeans in the ‘Weird Guy’ straight cut. They are possibly the most versatile model that Naked & Famous produce. The denim is mid-weight at 13.75oz and are relatively easy to fade. However, the most interesting feature about this pair is the ‘Left Hand Twill’ weaving of the fabric. As opposed to the typical ‘Right Hand Twill’ weaving found on most basic denim, LHT is reserved for more premium jeans and allows for a more unique texture and overall softer feel. You can cop your own pair here.
We are very excited to announce iNSEAM are now carrying Naked & Famous. The brand hails from Canada and are run by some of the most passionate people in the denim industry. Their core philosophy is ‘raw and simple’ – just the way it should be! All their jeans use only the finest denim from Japan and cut for the modern wearer. No other brand boasts a more eclectic yet traditionally minded collection. Now without further ado, we present some of their highlights in our stock.
Cut in Naked & Famous’ signature ‘Weird Guy’ (low rise, tapered) fit. It’s unique weaving method makes the Left Hand Twill Selvedge the softest raw denim you will ever wear. Also available in ‘Skinny Guy‘ fit.
Cut in the ‘Skinny Guy’ (regular rise, skinny leg) fit. Broken Twill denim is woven neither left or right giving the denim a distinctly bolder texture. This gives the denim a naturally deeper indigo finish.
Lightweight Selvedge weighs in at an uber-light 10oz. Ideal for Australians battling our temperamental climate but still wanting some raw denim in their rotation. Also available in ‘Weird Guy‘ fit.
Black denim should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. Why not make it blacker than black? Similar fabric in ‘Skinny Guy – Black Power Stretch‘

If you’re like most of us and stuck behind a desk five out of seven days, I could probably get behind taking a bit of sandpaper to your jeans to speed up the wearing in process. Just don’t be splashing around bleach so liberally like this fellow here. That shit’s heinous.
How do you think they turned out?
