Fade Friday – Momotaro Vintage Label 0701 (14 Months, No Washes)
Momotaro Vintage Label 0701 uses an unsanforized 15.7oz dry selvage denim made of 100% Zimbabwe Cotton. This particular denim is famous for a stubbornness to fade, a justified reputation as it took almost 6 months of almost daily wear to achieve some remarkable fades. Now after fourteen months of wear, around four days a week, the denim is finally starting to show its beauty and fading potential.
This pair was initially soaked to get rid of the shrinkage and since then has not in contact with water, apart from rain or occasional beer splash. It has developed a nice patina and on closer inspection it is possible to see the dirtiness in the legs.
