Naked & Famous has just released the 3rd installment of their heavy Elephant denim, the appropriately named, Elephant 3. Those who have looked around for heavyweight denim know that choices for denim heavier than 14-16 Oz. are limited, so it’s no surprise that the Elephant series has been immensely popular not only for its weight but also its price point.
The Elephant 3 is made of 19 Oz. sanforized Japanese denim with a deep indigo warp and beige weft. If you’re keeping score, you’ll notice that the Elephant 3 weighs a little less than the Elephant 2, which were 22 Oz but at 19 Oz, it’s still be more than enough fabric for heavyweight fans. Keeping in the same vein as the previous Elephants, the Elephant 3 has tonal stitching and a quarter-inch thick heavy leather patch.

Along with the Elephant 3, Naked & Famous has announced their plans of releasing another round of their 32oz denim. We had previously covered the 32oz denim when it was first released and Brandon Svarc, the founder, had mentioned that it was possible they would not be able to do this again due to difficulties encountered during the manufacturing process. However, it seems they’ve worked out the kinks and are set to take on the challenge again. Full details have yet to be released but this run will limited to 50 pairs of black and 100 pairs of indigo.
