19oz Elephant XS - Super Guy
Naked & Famous - 19oz Elephant XS - Super Guy
This is the big one (physically and metaphorically). The Elephant series had made it through 10 iterations. It is our best-seller every year, and I would guess that it's the same for Naked & Famous. It's the best price for a heavyweight denim on the market, but it doesn't pull any punches. We've seen previous iterations break-in, and my goodness do they hold up. They look incredible too, so ultimately the Elephant series is a win-win every year. This round is super dark and very reminiscent of the deep indigo stretch selvedge. This is due to the grey weft. It also sports a wonderful metallic silver ticker with a maroon dash. The special part about this round...there's stretch. It's the first time we've seen it from N&F and we couldn't think of a better place for it to land than on the 10th anniversary of the Elephant.
The Elephant X S a 19oz heavyweight Japanese selvedge denim with 2% stretch The S series elephant denim retains the original fabric details with stretch included for added comfort and mobility. The Elephant X pays tribute to the very first Elephant Denim, utilizing the original indigo warp exterior and weight along with a new gunmetal grey weft interior and chrome selvedge ID. The result is deep indigo denim with a shadowy undertone. Cut, sewn, built in Canada with contrast stitching, a 10oz vegetable tanned leather patch, and burnished silver metallic buttons and rivets.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 31 in the pictures. That is his typical N&F size. These were feeling just slightly tighter than their 100% cotton counterpart. We highly recommend sizing up one if you're not used to heavier-weight denim (honestly we recommend that even if you are). Tommy is 5'10," 162lbs with a 32-33" waist.
*The Super Guy is a skinny fit with a medium rise, a slim top block, and a taper from knee to hem.*
This Crosscut has all that heavy texture goodness for which the shirt is known. It's a chunky twill with the enamel-coated buttons you all know and love. And, it's a gorgeous Rust color that shoots a bit of saturation into an otherwise desaturated lineup for FW23. Still though, this shirt has a softness from the brushing process that we've come to appreciate. The day of the stiff, crunchy flannel has come to an end, at least for now. Cozy is in, but without losing the hardiness this thing cut its teeth on.
The Easy Pant is a roomy, comfy fitting pant with a cut nice enough to make you want to wear it out and about, but just as easily to lounge on the couch. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, these pants will pair perfectly with them. We really appreciate that they used their newly acquired fabric wizardry to do the talking. Since pairing with their factory in India, the level of textile uniqueness is through the roof. This Jacquard has a topographical hand feel that you can see in the pictures but only truly experience in person. It's very, very hard to shock us after 10 years of seeing and touching fabrics on a daily basis - but this Dry Garden Jacquard has opened our eyes to what technical weaving can be.
The Shop Jacket is a new silhouette for FW23 that is designed with a nod toward classic European chore coats. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, this jacket will layer over the top of them so nicely.

We figured it was due time to bring in some tees from our fan-favorite brand. Our thinking was that if they make pants and shirts and sweats so well, the tee shirts must be impeccable. Well, they are. We love the loose, boxy fit of this tee more than we expected. And the little embroidery of the islands of Japan at the yoke is fantastic. The jersey fabric is heavy without being a "heavyweight" tee. It's a jersey with just enough weight that you can feel it but not so much that it feels like a task to put it on. This and the roomier cut give it nice breathability. If you're an orSlow stan like we are at the shop, you're gonna need one of these puppies.
If you asked the question "What would it be like if you put pockets on the Fatigue Pants?" - this might just be your answer. Of course, it has different pockets and a slightly different cut, but a similar look overall. We've received more questions about this pant over the past 6 months than we know what to do. Sometimes, we like to snag something, if we can, to test fit and glean public opinion. This one was a "yes" from the general pop, and from us at the shop, so it had to be brought in. The major difference between this and most fatigues is that ripstop fabric. It's the grid pattern you see on a macro level in the pants that is built to be more resistant to ripping and tearing. It was one of the military's first tech fabrics, without using any actual synthetic tech. Where they lack the texture of the reverse sateen, they gain a ton with the ripstop. These are a little smoother overall and we're over the moon for this roomier fit. They take on a whole new wardrobe inspiration with this loose, comfy feel. The side tab adjusters make it quite utilitarian as the piece is as a whole in general. These babies have everyone swooning.
