This is pretty much exactly what it appears to be. My wife and I went to Barney’s to check out the sale (60% off a fair amount of stuff), and I walked away with a pair of Naked & Famous jeans. These are their 24 ounce denim pants - a denim about twice as heavy as the usual. Absurdly thick. And seen here (while still wet!) standing up on their own. Now that’s a pair of jeans.
