Fade Friday – Samurai 710XX, 3 Years

This week’s Fade Friday features a fairly beat up pair of Samurai 710xx denim after 3 years.  This denim belongs to a friend mine, Jian (pronounced ‘Jean’ – no pun intended), who got his hands on these via a proxy in Japan.  The photo’s didn’t turn out as well as we had hoped, but we think you get the idea.

Enough background though…!
