This week’s Fade Friday comes to us by means of Riekele Scholte, of Amsterdam’s finest denim shop, Tenue de Nîmes. Riekele wrote to us recently about his nicely worn pair of Momotaro 0705SP denim that have been through all sorts of adventures.
Note: Have any well-worn raw denim that you’d love others to see? If so, please send photos and details to firstname.lastname@example.org
From his summer travels exploring Japan and climbing Mount Fuji, to his daily bike rides around town, the denim has certainly earned every rip, tear, and contrasting crease shown. He did give them a good soak after his travels and has had both back pockets restitched. Thanks again, Riekele!
