naked and famousNaked & Famous Presents Lord of Nep Selvedge Jeans

The guys from Naked & Famous are known of their extremely rare and uncommon developments. Also for this Fall-Winter, they dropped a very special jeans edition; Lord of Nep Selvedge. This pair is an extremely neppy one!

Custom-Developed Fabric

The Lord of Nep Selvedge is made with a 14.5oz Japanese selvedge denim. Neppy yarns typically have a small number of small knots and fibers that appear as small imperfections in a woven fabric. The Naked & Famous Lord of Nep is made with a yarn that has been custom-developed for the brand. The outcome is the neppiest denim ever made with an extreme amount of knots.

When woven, the denim becomes overrun with three-dimensional neps that pop like popcorn on both the front and backside of the fabric. The fabric for this jeans is woven on vintage shuttle looms and finished with a classic redline selvedge ID. The jeans have been pre-washed to remove shrink from the fabric as the denim was too neppy to go through traditional fabric finishing processes.

Cut & Sewn In Canada

The Naked & Famous jeans show contrast stitching, an ostrich leather patch, and silver metallic buttons and rivets. Due to the beautiful natural character of the ostrich leather patches, some will have circular quill marks, some will have partial quill marks, some will have none. It’s cut, sewn, and produced in Canada, while the fabric comes from Japan.
