23oz Unsanforized Japanese Denim, King Of Slub Is Here!

The King of Slub is a 23oz Unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim with an extremely slubby uneven texture. A result of low tension weaving techniques, and the use of custom developed irregular sized “King Slub Yarn”. The King Slub Yarn was developed over a 2 year period, as standard Slub yarns could not produce such an extreme three dimensional texture.
  
  
 
The yarn is rope dyed with indigo and due to the thickness and irregular shape of the yarn indigo absorption varies from section to section. Over time with wear, as the indigo starts to fade, a wide gradient of indigo becomes visible, and the thickness of the yarn allows for an extreme high contrast three dimensional textured fade.  Other details include, contrast stitching, classic red line selvedge id, buffalo leather patch, dark copper buttons and rivets. 
   
Naked & Famous Denim sent the King Of Slub's to a denim processing specialist. Check out what a processed pair of King Of Slub looks like here.
  
I washed a pair of the King Of Slub's inside-out at high temperature, in a front-load washing machine, without any soap, and laid flat to dry. I took Pre and Post wash measurements, calculated the shrinkage percentage for each, and predicted the post soak measurements for all sizes. Find Pre and Estimated Post Soak measurements here. -Cierra
