This denim might make a good vest. Or make a jacket with a variety of optional linings with the black denim. E.g. quilted red, grey wool, pendelton patterned wool blanket lining, etc.
Wouldn't want jeans. Don't think I could move or bend in them. That's why a vest would be perfect.
I suspect N&F did this as a stunt to set the weight record and one-up Iron Heart. Wouldn't the cost be prohibitive, and you have to use carpet sewing machinery? Even if you could make them, it seems like a novelty item / collectors item. Or an Arms Race. For example, 25 oz denim jeans are not that practical for many conditions (temp ranges and activities). IH is pretty open about the fact that the 23 oz don't breathe well. (I only wear 21 oz + when it's under about 77 degrees.) When would you wear these? 2 months in the winter.
I've only seen two or three people break in the N&F 32 oz jeans, one as part of Heavy Weight Denim Competitions and he was basically in the Arctic of Canada. But who knows what's out there...

There could be a market for the 32oz it is hard to say. Naked and Famous all did sell out so who knows. As mentioned maybe jackets are a good use. We just don't want anyone getting hurt using the fabric.
23 ounce is enough for me.
