It’s the holiday gift you never realized you wanted. Naked & Famous Denim has revealed their new Street Fighter 2 line of jeans that will be available come late November.
The reveal video (see above) highlights jeans for Street Fighter classic characters Ryu and Guile.
They actually aren’t over the top as both options take a fairly subtle route in their video game nods. Sewn on leather patches at the very top are dead giveaways, but Hadoken and Sonic Boom-colored wefts will serve as a quiet reminder to yourself that you’re sporting the coolest jeans.
The jeans also feature giant character prints on the inside pocket bags.
Though we don’t see it in the reveal video, it seems a certain secret character may be getting his own jean reveal in the near future. I can only imagine they’ll have something of a destroyed look, perhaps with Zanku Hadoken holes in the knees.
Here is what Naked & Famous tells us about this:
Naked & Famous Denim and Japanese video game developer Capcom have partnered up to create a capsule collection of jeans featuring the arcade classic Street Fighter 2.
“We are denim nerds who are also video game nerds”, says owner and designer of Naked & Famous Denim, Brandon Svarc. “Working closely with Capcom to create these exciting jeans is literally a nostalgic dream come true for our team.”
For this collaboration, jeans featuring the characters Ryu and Guile were made using custom woven Japanese selvedge denim fabrics each one designed to embody the persona of the character they are based on. Other details include; a metallic foil stamped natural tan leather patch, signature icon pocket embroidery, character artwork printed pocket bags, and holofoil pocket flasher featuring 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.
