This week’s Fade Friday sees the first appearance of denim from Atelier LaDurance, a French brand founded by Gerard Backx in 2002, the Prescott Sterling. While the washes are unknown, this pair is well worn after 8 years of wear and an adjustment after 4 years of wear; tapering the legs and even bringing in the waist.
Big thanks to Cyriel Marijnissen (@cyrielwatdoeje), from The Netherlands, for sending in the photos. In addition to the adjustments mentioned earlier, Cyriel has lost a belt-loop in the process albeit given new pockets and a button to the denim.
For all the Nudie fanatics out there, after all of the repairs and modifications (including five trips to the tailor), this Prescott Sterling‘s fit is now comparable to the Average Joe.
Atelier LaDurance‘s Prescott Sterling is a straight cut with a low waist and slim tapered legs. Some of the more interesting features include the ‘vichy’ check lining and the ‘crosspatch’ cut flap and plain backpockets.
