Naked & Famous Glow in the Dark Selvedge Denim Jeans

by Accidental Bear

These jeans will be desired by some and to ween down that grouping more is their price of $240. I was working retail back in the peak of raver day’s and can remember these little, brightly colored kids, sucking of pacifiers and glow sticks usually had mommy and daddy’s gold card in their back pocket. I call that roughing it, not! So, these pants will still be worn by those trying to get away with their down and out-starving-artist-wannabe-look. Money is nothing to be ashamed of, I just don’t have any.

Sartorially-minded ravers everywhere rejoice: your uniform for this fall has been decided. Naked & Famous recently dropped their unique Japanese selvedge creation on select Barneys New York and Barneys CO-OP locations.

See, the secret is in the phosphorescent coating which, when exposed to natural or artificial light (read: wearing them all day) absorbs and charges that light and then BAM! You step into your favorite lounge or dive bar looking like a walking glow stick. But, during work hours, these go-to worthy pair of straight leg 13.5 oz. raw indigo denims will keep you the incognito Clark Kent of clubland: safe until the sun sets…

  1. I’m not sure how these jeans fit into the brand mission statement. “We keep all our jeans raw and simple. No washes, no embroidery, no gimmicks… just the best fabric in the world combined with modern fits. We have eliminated these costly (and in our opinion unnecessary) after-effects, and have stripped down our jeans to the core essentials. Now true denimheads and newcomers alike can enjoy these special fabrics at a reasonable price.” Reasonable price @ $240 and I don’t know about anyone else but glow in the dark seems a little “costly (and in our opinion unnecessary) after-effects.”

  2. So true. These, I believed are shunned by denim heads. I am true Levis to the end kind of guy and have thankfully skipped over the whole girls jeans for boys and all the embroidery on the pockets. What always strikes me as funny is seeing these thugged out guys on the street and they turn around and the backs of the jeans are all embroidered with pretty patterns. Not so tough guys lol
