Blue Smoke Selvedge From Naked & Famous
As part of the Japanese labels’ FW22 collection, Naked & Famous have released their Blue Smoke Stretch Selvedge. As with all releases from the Japanese brand, there is a lot more to the denim that meets the eye.
Coming in weighing 11oz, the pair is on the lighter side in comparison to some of the heavier models from Naked & Famous. This makes the pair a lot more comfortable to wear initially after purchase & less need to ‘break in’ the selvedge.
The Blue Smoke denim takes it’s name quite literally from the colourway. The selvedge is a very very dark shade of indigo with a hint of black added into the dye, making it appear black in certain lights. The magic is with time the indigo dye fades to become a brighter shade of blue, becoming more prevalent with washing and wear.
This dye allows for an amazing wearing look that is unique to each pair – similarly to the patina found on leather goods that come with age & wear. 2% stretch is added for even more mobility and comfort whilst still retaining the favourable classic feel of raw Japanese denim.
Unlike most denim from Naked & Famous, this model boasts detailing that blends into the fabric weave – continuing the dark tones. Featured throughout is black tonal stitching, black mil spec hardware, blackline selvedge id & the iconic back suede patch is even black.
The Blue Smoke Selvedge is available in the labels Super Guy fit, online & in-store now at Stuarts London.
