Not all fabrics are worthy of a nerd-like following. Denim is one of though, and if you dig beyond “blue jeans” you’ll find that it comes with an insider vocabulary. A word like selvage, (an edge that’s sewn closed to prevent unraveling — it comes from “self-edge”) is important to know if long-term quality is what you’re after. Warp and weft are a little more in the nitty-gritty, but Naked and Famous takes all of these things into account when constructing the jeans that it has built its entire brand upon.
The company sources its denim in Japan and builds its garments in Canada — it’s made every type of jean from glow-in-the-dark to Kevlar. The Core Essentials collection, now on sale at Huckberry for 15 percent off, sticks to the basics though, so you don’t have to overextend your vocabulary to know that you’re getting a quality pair of pants that’ll last long enough to produce that longed-for fade.
