Here is something interesting they Released a Jean that fade White to blue

http://hypebeast.com/2011/04/naked-famous-reverse-fade-denim/







bells and whistles. these are going to go down as "good idea, bad result".

the fact that the jeans are white to begin with are going to turn away a large portion of their target audience (hence posted on hypebeast for the rest of their demographic) and even after wearing down into the blue hue, the longer you wear them they will only go white again. there is very little chance the blue under the white will stay blue. odds are it will eventually turn white as well and you'll be stuck with a white pair of jeans. cute concept, just not something i think many people would take seriously who are serious into japanese and artisan denim.

I personally like natural colour jeans, By natural I mean non treated seed cotton look. yes your right no real denim head would really be interested. But is a very unique idea.

I don't know how they did it but there is plenty of way to dye blue so it doesn't fade. But it won't be indigo....

^It's not that unique, Nudie did something like that last summer and a few seasons ago too. It was the Big Bengt and Slim Jim cut, don't remember the exact name.

Still I haven't seen a "faded" pair and doubt that it works at all. As far as I know, Indigo doesn't dye the core of the cotton fibre and thus gives way toa lighter shade of blue when abrasions occur. Dunno how this should work there.

the reverse fade jean may be the weirdest article of clothing i've ever seen. somewhat intriguing, but absolutely ridiculous.

as far as N&F goes, their cuts for girls look phenomenal. as far as their other jeans, i've never seen one that i was particularly into. although, a dude on sufu has a pretty rad looking pair.

. . . thing is most peeps buy what they think is good denim and then learn what is good denim . . . mostly it's an iterative process - sometimes you get lucky and start with IH, but most of us start elsewhere and end up with IH

we shouldn't criticize the journey . . . but we should celebrate the destination  :)

tbh, there's nothing wrong with N&F imo, yes, Iron Hearts are better, but forum members still buy flathead. It depends on what you're looking for. I do prefer IH to N&F of course. But, I'm not going to actively discriminate against N&F solely because IH is better.
