Another interesting pair of jeans from Naked And Famous is the Weird Guy Japan Heritage. These jeans are created using a typically Japanese low tension weave selvage denim. Rumour has it that this is a sanforized version of a denim previously used by Samurai Jeans, Though it is less extreme, the fabric kind of resembles that of the ONI collab, full of irregularities & slubs.
