Heavy weight denim lovers rejoiced June 27th when Naked and Famous Denim posted an Instagram photo of an ultra thick leather patch, far thicker than the patch currently used on the 32oz weird guy. The post included a caption that read:
This would lead most people to believe that at the very least Naked and Famous will be restocking their iconic 32oz. However, a later instagram story post of the same photo with the caption “records were made to be broken” hints that they are planning on breaking their last record as the makers of the world’s heaviest denim.
In the last two years a few small mills/brands such as Kassim Denim have produced proof of concept 38 and 40oz jeans demonstrating that it is possible to do such thing. The questions now remain, when will we see this product? Which fits will it come in? And how heavy will it be? We can only hope that Naked and Famous hopes to break their original record and mass produce a 40z denim or possibly something heavier!
