Naked & Famous Denim and Japanese video game developer Capcom have partnered up to create a capsule collection of jeans and shirts featuring the arcade classic Street Fighter 2.
This exciting partnership combines the worlds of the iconic 90’s video game Street Fighter™ 2 and the always innovative Naked & Famous Denim. By drawing inspiration from the games, Naked & Famous Denim custom developed shirts showcasing 8-bit renditions of iconic imagery from the game.
The Street Fighter™ 2 x Naked & Famous Denim: Cut Jacquard 8-Bit Icon "Akuma + Heaven" aprites are not merely printed onto the fabric, but instead are woven into the fabric in a rare process called cut-jacquard weaving. This unique and slow process gives the shirt a luxurious feel and appearance that cannot be replicated by mass production methods.
The motif used on this fabric is Akuma, one of the notorious villains in the game, along with his signature "heaven" kanji.
The shirts are made in Canada in North America's oldest existing shirt manufacturing company with fabric that was custom produced in Japan.
The Naked & Famous Denim "Regular fit" is a classic button-down collar shirt in slightly slim silhouette.
