Weird Guy Rusted Blue selvedge, 13.5oz - Dyed in a unique indigo greencast dye which gives it the unique "rusted blue" color. Also features tobacco colored thread throughout.

Skinny Guy Natural Indigo Selvedge, 12.5oz.  An old-fashioned selvedge denim featuring a lighter-colored natural shade of indigo. Inspired by vintage denim of the west, this sanforized fabric will age to an even lighter shade of indigo after extensive wear.

TAFT'S NAKED & FAMOUS DENIM NEP SELVEDGE January 21 2015


Photo cred: Bahzad Trinos

Check out Taft in his Naked & Famous Denim Skinny Guy's. We'd say these are the epitome of perfectly worn in jeans. When he's not working at Service Menswear, Taft plays music and paints, which has helped to add a lot of personality to the fade. Taft is signed to Austin's very own Punctum Records and his brand new album "Groove Redundant" comes out on February 12th.

Naked & Famous has deemed this pair of Nep Selvedge "exceptional" and we certainly agree. We're also really into the way Taft has styled his look, with extra beat up Chuck's and a slightly shrunken oxford.

 

 

Service stocks 4 fits of Naked & Famous Denim in over 20 finishes. Head to their brand page in our online shop here or stop into the store to get fitted.


SELVEDGE DENIM ORIGAMI October 25 2014

Naked & Famous Denim will be making selvedge denim origami today in-store...come by for a 1-on-1 fitting and receive one of these beautiful gifts with purchase.


ELEPHANT 4 HAS LANDED... October 20 2014

Naked & Famous Elephant 4 denim has arrived at Service. This cult pair of jeans is cut from 22 oz raw, Japanese selvedge denim and comes in the tapered, Weird Guy fit. Why do we love this pair of jeans? Because they wear in so beautifully over time, it is like creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Below, we have posted photos of the Elephant 3 denim, the previous iteration of this jean, after 1 year of wear and many washes. This is the kind of denim people pay upward of $300 dollars for, to achieve the look of perfectly worn in jeans without doing the work. The below pair is what they look like when you do it yourself...custom denim that is unique to your body and lifestyle and looks better than any treated denim you'd find ready-to-wear. Buy a pair and get going on creating your own beautiful fade. You won't regret it and you'll have them forever until you want to do it again (and we bet you will).

THE UNBRANDED BRAND October 15 2013

"No branding, no washes, no embroidery, no ad campaigns and no celebrities."  A straight forward pair of jeans that wear in perfectly over time. In store now! UNBRANDED is the perfect everyday jean that offers you a whole lot of bang for the buck. At $82 to $88, the maker's of Naked & Famous Denim now offer a new brand of slim, raw selvedge indigo denim, or selvedge chino, with all the best details that you might find in a jean that's far more expensive.

We've stocked two finishes. The first, a selvedge jean made from 100% sanforized* cotton 14.5oz Japanese raw rope-dyed indigo selvedge denim. The second, a navy twill selvedge chino. Each finish features classic selvedge details, a button fly, hidden back pocket rivets, chain stitched hems and a clean unbranded leather patch. We are stocking both finishes in a skinny and a tapered fit.



If you're the type to never wash your jeans, get ready to experience some of the best fading and crease marks ever. Here's an example of what the indigo denim looks like after 9 months of wear, 1 dip in the ocean at 5 months, and a wash at 6.



*Trivia: Sanforization is the process of pre-shrinking a fabric to eliminate the residual shrinkage, in this case of denim, to less than 1%. In contrast, fabric that does not undergo sanforization is likely to shrink up to 10% (a couple inches in the waist) on the initial wash and can continue to shrink up to 3 washes after. The sanforization process was developed by Mr. Sanford Lockwood Cluett in 1930 and we thank him very kindly for taking a large percentage of the guess work out of shopping for the perfect denim. Now bring that to your local pub quiz.

NEW NAKED & FAMOUR SELVEDGE CHINO October 03 2013

We've currently stocked a new color of Naked & Famous' WeirdGuy selvedge chino…introducing a nice rich brown for Fall.

On top of that, we’ve restocked all sizes in the WeirdGuy in selvedge olive green. If you missed out on them the first time, we’ve got you covered!


NAKED & FAMOUS + ONI May 01 2013

The ONI - Naked & Famous collaboration is no longer in production… NOOOOO! This 14.5 oz unsanforized/shrink-to-fit collab combines ONI’s original slub/streaky denim with Naked & Famous’ Weird Guy fit. Since this collaboration is shrink-to-fit you will need to size up a full size.

ONI (meaning “demon” in Japanese) brand denim manufactured in Okayama, Japan, has a huge cult following.  Legend has it that the creator of ONI, Mr. Oishi, is the only person who knows how to work the 80-year-old shuttle loom - this is one of the reasons why each and every inch of ONI’s denim is so special!

We have a small size run left- get them soon before they are gone FOREVER...
