EXCLUSIVE | Naked & Famous WeirdGuy 26 Oz. Super Heavy Black Weft Jean

Can’t believe we forgot to blog about these jeans! Naked & Famous put their denim heads together to produce the heaviest ounce jean in the world. According to brand founder Brandon Svarc:

“This tough fabric was so difficult to weave; our Japanese suppliers said they had to battle against the looms to make it happen. The shuttles were loaded with such heavy and rigid black weft yarns that it struggled to make each fill pass. As a result this created “a war within the loom” and the vibrations (loom chatter) were intense! This is all evidenced by the beautifully unique and irregular character of the resulting denim fabric…”

As a result of this challenging production process, Naked & Famous only managed to make 190 pairs…for the WORLD! A limited edition jean available only from the brand’s favourite retailers. were able to carry them; Over the Rainbow managed to snag 6 pairs of them. Made in their signature WeirdGuy fit, this jean is made with 26 ounce Japanese black weft selvedge denim. Guaranteed not to rip or fade significantly in our lifetime. See more pictures below…
