It’s natural, when you get a new pair of jeans, to have those simultaneous feelings of excitement and impatience. You’re stoked to have a new pair of jeans, but you’re also a little bummed out that they don’t look exactly how you want them to yet. It’ll take time to get that distressed, raggedy feel, just be patient.
Or, I guess, don’t. The Sakiori Denim from Naked & Famous is pretty out of the left field, but it certainly has that distressed look to it. Sakiori is a Japanese textile tradition, in which old scraps are sewn together to make brand new pieces.
N&F has paid homage to this process with a 16oz. “denim,” where the warp yarns are replaced with fabric scraps. The requisite material and labor make for a markedly pricier pair of jeans, but if you value the oddball work that N&F is known for, then you may enjoy these. The Sakiori denim comes in both the brand’s Super Guy and Weird Guy fits.
