My pair of Kasuri Selvedge was a great Christmas gift from my soon-to-be bride. What makes this pair of raw denim unique is the dyeing method: Kasuri. Kasuri is a traditional Japanese method for dyeing cloth in order to make patterns. The patterns form because certain threads are bound before the dyeing process so the indigo has a harder time staying on the cloth. This process is repeated until the desired pattern is formed. I would recommend clicking the above link to learn more about this interesting Japanese dyeing method. It really is quite fascinating!
The thread used is more of a passive gold which is a nice contrast to the shades of blue, black, and white of the denim itself. All of the hardware is branded with Naked & Famous and they decided to go with a black leather (although I have seen it listed as blue) patch branded with their usual logo. The overall fit is Naked & Famous's Weird Guy which, according to their website, is the most popular and is a "standard" cut. In regards to the sewing of the inseam, it seems to be a flat-fell seam which will have pretty good fraying resistance.
I have only worn the pair of handful of times but it looks like the much sought after honeycomb fades will be look as good as the best of them. There was no break in period for the jeans as they are of a lighter weight. I plan on wearing them as my main summer pair and am really looking forward to seeing their evolution after the hot weather ends!
