This innovative denim is a blend of Kevlar® and Cotton that creates a tough and ultra-durable jean. Kevlar® yarn is famous for being 5 times stronger than steel, per weight! As a synthetic aramid fiber, Kevlar® has been used in many applications where tensile strength and strength-to-weight ratio are key. For example, the fiber is used in motorcycle tires, aircraft carrier landing cables and bulletproof vests. Please note that these jeans are not bulletproof so please don’t try to shoot yourself in the leg.
Together with the mill in Japan, Naked & Famous Denim has run technical tear-strength tests and break-strength tests on the Kevlar® denim versus the equivalent construction in 100% cotton. They found that the durability of the Kevlar® blend denim is simply amazing. N&F founder Brandon Svarc notes, “Even the technicians at the mill were astonished by how much stronger this Kevlar® denim was over its 100% cotton counterpart!”
What We Think: These Jeans wont stop a bullet but they will stop your jeans from blowing out nearly as fast. This pant is ideal for the kind of person who is rough on their jeans but isn’t ready to commit to work wear. Go ahead and rough em up. *Power Tools Not Included*
