naked and famousNaked & Famous Chinese New Year Metal Rat Jeans

The Canadese denim brand Naked & Famous celebrates the Chinese New Year with the Metal Rat jeans. This new 2020, year of the rat, welcomes 12 Chinese Zodiac animals that cycle annually and 5 Zodiac elements (wood, fire, earth, water, metal) that cycle every two years. So, every Chinese New Year associates an animal with an element and that coupling will not repeat for another 60 years.

Special Red Golden Selvedge ID

The Metal Rat jeans is a five-pocket jeans made of a special 12.5oz Japanese selvedge fabric. As selvedge ID they have chosen for a red and metallic version. Two colors that refer to the celebration. The fabric itself is made from authentic rope-dyed yarns with slub, so expect a create texture, and also killer future fades. With wear, the indigo will fade, and high-contrast vertical lines will pop-up.

Features Of The Jeans

The jeans have silver metallic buttons and rivets, and the inner pockets are made of red fabric. On the coin pocket, you will see the special red and golden selvedge too. For the leather patch on the back, they used a natural vegetable tanned patch. It is embossed with a golden rat design. The rat is breaking through a barrier, nuts, and bolts flying.

Produced In Canada

The Metal Rat by Naked & Famous is cut, sewn, and produced in Canada. The jeans will hit the stores this upcoming Friday.
