The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

Jun 16, 2010 @ 19:57
yeah well i like my jeans skinny and the UO ones are offered in 3 cuts including skinny. the jacobs x wrangler ones seem to have have just one cut right? what if i'd like something along the line of the APC New Cure, are there any other jeans with a better bang for your buck?


If you're just getting into raw denim, the UO is definitely a great practice pair. I have them and you should just check out the thread, the fits are nice and are only $78 and its dark indigo. Can't really go wrong with them especially if you're looking for something cheap to start with

Lol, okay. Washing would of shown the fades better & you would've lost more indigo. But soaking is good too, since you probably wanted to leave some indigo in.


Ding! Just put em on and they feel like new! Super stiff and tight again.

I'm going to give them a full wash in like a year or so.

People keep saying this, but honestly i think these are better that Cheap Monday "unwash" is a better fit for a true "starter". Lower price point, more fits, and overall longer experience.

I support brandon for his choice, but for a newbie. $50 + Tax is better than say $80 + S/H + Tax.

i have the cm unwash too, and i will never ever get rid of them. ive worn the same pair regularly without washing once since august of 07. if something happened to them, i would be sad and have to replace them cause theyre too neat and remain relevant. true, theyre less expensive than the UO, but i just doubt anyone would care enough about the UO to lament the mistakes and accidentals so much as to repurchase them. if they die, they die, c'est la vie.

i was about to cop those but i heard slim guys are like straight fit, close to 501 so i backed out not really a popular cut.
Jun 19, 2010 @ 07:21
I wouldn't go that far, 501 is probably the most purchased/reproduced cut ever.

i like slim guys just fine. but i remember asking brandon if those brown ones were selvage, and he said no. s'all good, tho. theyre still really neat. and all gone. i think 501s are a great cut. im sad theyre generally made in mexico. brown selvage 47's would be totes aws. with a nice high rise and all that. low rise is poop.

4 months 2 washes

Jun 21, 2010 @ 00:26
haha sorry, i have to ask if those are deep indigo or just indigo.

they look real good though, props.
Jun 21, 2010 @ 01:13
i agree, i like the shade of blue
Jun 21, 2010 @ 01:44
Those are deep indigos, you can tell cause it has orange stitching.
They looks good better at 4 months for you than at 9 months for me smh.
I'll post pics of mine soon when I get my camera back
Jun 21, 2010 @ 10:53
Yup orange-stitching = Deep-Indigo

& yeah holy shit there is so much progress in that in 4 months compared to my 9 month indigos.. nothing close.. smh

whoa, i never noticed that...
i just got my indigo's, should i be ready for a whole lot of nothing over a long period of time?
Jun 22, 2010 @ 01:07
Yes, you should.. lol! Unless you do some crazy shit in them all the time.

I honestly wore mine everyday - 15 days & it is nothing like that deep indigo.
Jun 22, 2010 @ 01:27
when were those washes?

Hm. I wunner if folks would have a generally easier time fading if they washed early on.

i would say that in a typical scenario, that formula would apply. however, in this scenario, where most people are getting approximately zero fades and zero contrast, save for one group of people( those who've washed), just seems like it might be necessary with these to kick-start the process.whats likely is that even after the wash, the dye, which is obviously ridonk with staying around, will still yield results closer to what youd expect.

there are, however, a few who've done a wash at some point and have been less satisfied. the only way to figure out what went wrong is to compare methods.

did you all have different temps? soaks? inside-out? what about you, ony?

has anyone whos had a less satisfying wash had better fading afterward?

with most brands, the answers to these questions might be obvious, but because there is such a range of wieghts, dyes and materials, this brand in particular is a bit hard to pin down. it needs a manual, not a standardized cardstock.

My first wash was cold, low spin, and inside out
My second was hot, normal spin, and right side out

i'm looking into getting a pair of size 38 weird guys, i was just curious on what i should expect for the leg opening size to be? being a bigger waist size, this is always the place that denim fits like shit for me. i looked around a good bit for a measurement chart for weird guys and i can't find one. does anyone have any ideas?
Jul 02, 2010 @ 00:37

size 38? Was that a typo or are you really that much of a fat fuck?

if your already going to spend the 100+ on a pair of nice denim, go the extra mile and get them tailored for another 20 to fit you the way you want them.
