If your are not yet familiar with Naked & Famous, it’s about time you take that initiative and check out their work. While doing so you will come to find that Naked and Famous only uses the most unique and rare denim from Japan.  Through out the production processing  the mill uses a combination of old school and modern methods and practices, really giving the best of both worlds. Naked & Famous prides themselves on not only their production but as well as their aesthetic just as much. No washes, no embroidery, no gimmick just the best fabrics the world has to offer with modern construction.

Slim Shirt Chambray Selvedge by N&F is in a league of its own. The fit, the feel, and construction is top notch. With it being chambray selvedge it gives consumers the ability to “customize” their own fitting for this shirt just as they would if wearing out selvedge jeans. What’s also awesome about this shirt is that it can easily be dressed up or worn in a more casual minor. Pending on your personal preference. Just look at my buddy Darryl he’s thrilled in his N&F piece, why shouldn’t you?

Happy Friday!

Nudie Jeans F/W 2012

Lets get one thing out of the way, denim has a own culture of its own. I don’t know as much about denim and treating denim as I would like to know. There are sneaker heads and yes there are also “denim heads” if thats what you want to call them. But I am intrigued and have had many sit down and discussions on denim, yes discussions solely on denim. Which usually lead to me getting a minor head ache. Word of advice never tell a denim fanatic “but they’re just jeans though”. But after many discussions I believe I got the basics down pat pretty well and I must say denim is definitely an entire world of its own.


 Well whether you are a big denim fanatic or not.  9 times out of 10 you may be a bit familiar with the brand Nudie Jeans. If not, don’t worry I got you covered on a quick rundown.

Nudie Jeans is a Swedish clothing brand thats takes great pride in not only providing great jeans but offer a way of thinking, a concept and an undying passion, fuelled by the traditions of denim and the characteristics of itself.

Since 2001 when Nudie was founded, they have had a vision of designing a completely organic collection. Over the years the brand has ambitiously worked to fulfill the vision and gradually share of organic  garments has increased. Nudie Jeans F/W for 2012 is completely  made from organic cotton. All pocket linings and trims are made from organic raw materials as well.

The jeans above are from their F/W collection is most definitely my favourite fit. The fit is ” Thinn Finn” it is a slimmed down version of the 1950’s carrot shaped silhouettes. It also has a normal rise and an extra low back yoke. It’s slim from the hip and tapers down to a narrow leg opening. They are a tad too slim at first, but over time they will break down and fit my body the way I desire. Also they have a bit of a stretch which is a lot more comforting, unlike its cousin raw denim.

If you’re living in the Montreal area and looking to pick yourself up a pair Alibi has you covered. They will also be available online in a few days.
