Our favorite jeans company, Naked and Famous, has made a pair of jeans out of the heaviest denim in the world. Two to three times the weight of your average high quality denim, these Naked and Famous jeans are made from 32oz selvedge denim and are so heavy and rigid, the jeans can stand on their own.

These pair of jeans aren't for the faint of heart (or daint of waist), those with bony hips can fully expect to get marked and bruised up just by wearing them. The whole process to make the 32oz jeans took Naked and Famous two years—with a whole lot of mallet hammering, bashing and expert sewing to put this "Mt. Everest of jeans" together (some parts of the jeans are almost an inch thick).

Who would think to create such a thing? They're the heaviest jeans in the world! You might not notice the heaviness of the denim when you first look at the 32oz jeans but when stacked and folded against regular jeans (11oz) the difference really is jarring. That's nine pairs of regular jeans versus just three 32oz denim. And the 32oz denim is still bigger! A rather impressive bulge, if I say so myself.

And if you didn't believe the jeans could stand on its own, peep the picture here of a guy wearing a pair and air and gravity wearing the other. You could just buy the 32oz jeans to showcase as an art piece. Naked and Famous only made 138 pairs so the price veers toward ridiculous (~$800) but who else can say they got jeans that wear themselves? Only 137 other people. [Naked and Famous]

Maybe I'm old, but soft, broken in jeans are way better than this stiff selvedge stuff. I have a pair of 501s that were some collaboration with LL Bean, and are stiff selvedge denim. Levi's says not to wash them very often to "preserve the darkness". Yeah, right.

They've been washed and are breaking in quite nicely, thank you.
