Fade Friday – The Flat Head 6002W (2 Years, 9 Washes)

At Heddels, we’re all about the sharing the raw stuff. Our exclusive Fade Friday series has allowed us to share lots of beautifully faded jeans with the online denim community.

But that’s just it! So far we’ve only featured jeans! Therefore, this week’s Fade Friday will focus on the “other half” of raw denim, specifically the half from the waist up.

This week we have a denim jacket, specifically The Flat Head’s 6002W model. Worn over 2 years by the same gentleman who owns the Eternal 811’s we featured previously, the jacket received a total of 9 washes.

We present the photos in the same order as the original website had its updates: the new and unworn jacket; after the first day; after 9 months of wear; and after 2 years of wear. (We apologise for the small photos…they’re the best we could get!) Notable features are the super contrasted elbow combs, and the vertical falling so characteristic of The Flat Head’s denim.
