Akuma Raging Demon Selvedge
The Street Fighter™ 2 x Naked & Famous Denim: Akuma Raging Demon Selvedge jeans are made from a heavyweight 18oz Japanese selvedge denim with an extreme slub texture representative of the rugged toughness and dark persona of Akuma. The jeans are solid black, dyed on both the warp exterior yarns and weft interior yarns. The all red Selvedge ID and back pocket embroidery are symbolic of the Shun Goku Satsu (“Instant Hell Murder”) also known as the “Raging Demon”, a technique for which Akuma is most famous for. A natural vegetable tan leather patch is sewn on the backside of the jeans and features a highly detailed embossed illustration of Akuma performing a Shakunetsu Hadoken in red-foil. Hidden inside the jeans are red lining and pocket bags screen-printed with a portrait of Akuma. Included with each pair is a holofoil pocket flasher featuring eye-catching artwork from Udon Comics.
The yarns used to make these jeans are sulphur dyed black in a special process called rope dying. In this process only the outermost layers of the cotton yarn absorb the dye, leaving the core of the yarn white. With prolonged wear, denim made from rope dyed yarns will gradually shed layers and slowly reveal a beautifully faded fabric.
The jeans are made in Canada from denim that was woven on old-fashioned shuttle looms in the Okayama prefecture of Japan. The careful manipulation of the weaving machines and the use of irregularly sized slub yarns give the denim its uneven gritty texture.
