This exciting partnership combines the worlds of the iconic 90’s video game Street Fighter™ 2 and the always innovative raw denim brand Naked & Famous Denim. By drawing inspiration from the games character Blanka, Naked & Famous Denim custom developed a Japanese selvedge denim based on his persona.
The Street Fighter™ 2 x Naked & Famous Denim: Blanka "Electric Surge" Selvedge jeans are made using a custom developed 12.5oz Japanese Selvedge denim with a greencast dye to symbolize Blanka’s green skin. This denim starts off dark indigo, but over time with wear and wash, the jeans will eventually fade and become greener. Blanka’s iconic electrocuted opponent is embroidered on the back pocket. The savage character’s wild orange hair is represented by an orange hair-on-hide leather patch, which features a highly detailed embossed illustration. This theme continues at the cuffs and coin pocket with orange colored selvedge edges. Hidden inside the jeans are fun details like orange pocket bags printed with Blanka’s portrait. Also included is a holofoil pocket flasher featuring eye-catching artwork from Udon Comics.
The jeans are made in Canada from denim that was woven on old-fashioned shuttle looms in the Okayama prefecture of Japan. The yarns are dyed with indigo in a special process called rope dying. In this process, only the outermost layers of the cotton yarn absorb indigo dye, leaving the core of the yarn white. With prolonged wear, this unique fabric will gradually shed layers of indigo and slowly reveal a beautifully and uniquely faded pair of jeans.
The Naked & Famous Denim "Easy Guy" is a roomier comfortable fit for athletic thighs that tapers sharply from the knee down. High rise.
