Ryu Hadoken Selvedge
The Street Fighter™ 2 x Naked & Famous Denim: Ryu Hadoken Selvedge denim jeans are made using custom developed 12.5oz Japanese stretch selvedge denim to represent the persona of Ryu. The fabric is woven with an uneven bumpy texture representative of the rugged toughness of Ryu. Stretch was added for increased comfort and mobility. Inside the jeans, the interior weft yarns are dyed pale blue symbolizing Ryu’s Hadoken fireball technique. The famous Hadoken icon is embroidered on the back pocket. At the cuffs and coin pocket is a Hadoken colored metallic-blue selvedge edge. Anatural vegetable tan leather patch is sewn on the backside of the jeans and features a highly detailed embossed illustration of Ryu performing a Hadoken in blue-foil. Hidden inside the jeans are blue pocket bags screen-printed with Ryu in his Shoryuken dragon punch action pose. Included with each pair is a holofoil pocket flasher featuring eye-catching artwork from Udon Comics.
The yarns used to make these jeans are dyed with indigo 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 of indigo and slowly reveal a beautifully faded fabric. Ryu’s wandering warrior persona is embodied in this wear process. As each raw denim enthusiast and videogame fanatic wander this earth beating up their jeans, the denim will confirm to their body and fade into a personal piece of wearable art.
