Naked & Famous X Streetfighter II Editions

Naked & Famous Denim and Japanese video game developer Capcom have partnered up to create a special collection of jeans. The special collection is based around the arcade classic from the ’90’s: Street Fighter 2. For this collaboration they created three different jeans featuring the characters of Street Fighter 2. The jeans are made with Japanese selvedge denim fabrics and each one is designed to embody the persona of the character they are based on. Other details of these special jeans are: a metallic foil stamped natural tan leather patch, signature icon pocket embroidery, character artwork printed pocket bags, and holofoil pocket flasher featuring artwork from Udon Comics.

The Naked & Famous X Street Fighter 2 jeans are made in Canada from denim that was woven on old original shuttle looms in the Okayama prefecture of Japan. The yarns are dyed black in a special process called rope dying. In this process, only the outermost layers of the cotton yarn absorb dye, leaving the core of the yarn white. Over time these jeans will fade very natural, unique and beautiful. Just like the vintage pairs.

Owner and designer of Naked & Famous Brandon Svarc says about this collection: “We are denim nerds who are also video game nerds. Working closely with Capcom to create these exciting jeans is literally a nostalgic dream come true for our team.”

Naked & Famous: Ryu Hadoken Selvedge

The Naked & Famous: Ryu Hadoken Selvedge jeans are made using custom developed 12.5oz Japanese stretch selvedge denim to represent the persona of Ryu. The fabric is woven with an uneven bumpy texture representative of the rugged toughness of Ryu. Stretch was added to this pair for increased comfort and mobility. Inside the jeans, the interior weft yarns are dyed pale blue symbolizing Ryu’s Hadoken fireball technique. The famous Hadoken icon is embroidered on the back pocket. At the cuffs and coin pocket is a Hadoken colored metallic-blue selvedge edge. Anatural vegetable tan leather patch is sewn on the backside of the jeans and features a highly detailed embossed illustration of Ryu performing a Hadoken in blue foil. Hidden inside the jeans are blue pocket bags screen-printed with Ryu in his Shoryuken dragon punch action pose. Included with each pair is a holofoil pocket flasher featuring eye-catching artwork from Udon Comics.

Naked & Famous: Guile Sonic Boom Selvedge

The Naked & Famous: Guile Sonic Boom Selvedge jeans are made using a custom developed 12.5oz Japanese Selvedge denim woven from Texas Cotton, which symbolizes Guile’s American roots. Guile’s iconic Sonic Boom is embroidered on the back pocket. At the cuffs and coin pocket you will find a Sonic Boom colored metallic-gold selvedge edge. A natural vegetable tan leather patch is used, and features a highly detailed embossed illustration of Guile, along with his Sonic Boom stamped in gold foil.
