Naked & Famous Elephant 4 – Just Released

Though we’re still technically in summer, fall and winter are just around the corner. To prepare for the dropping temperatures, Canadian company Naked & Famous have just released their latest collection including several jeans designed in true Naked & Famous style.

They’ve got denim dyed in real pomegranate tannins as well as jeans with a self-described ‘candy weft’, but if you’re looking for something that’ll get you through this coming winter (and likely 10 winters thereafter), check out the fourth generation of their popular Elephant denim.

This year’s model uses a fabric that weighs in at a beefy 22 oz., 3oz. more than the Elephant 1 and the Elephant 3. Aside from just being twice as heavy as other jeans (literally), the fabric is a little more unique in that it is woven with a super deep indigo warp and a black weft. Down the road the fades should produce shades of a very vibrant blue.

The leather patch is just as thick as previous generations, though this time in a more glossy black finish with matte black fly buttons and rivets to match. It’s a hefty pair of jeans for sure, but at that price, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything with a dark weft in the same weight class.
