Fade Friday – SExFHxRJB (5 Months, 0 Washes)

Not all Fade Fridays have to feature denim that has been worn for years and years. After all, so much emphasis is placed on fades as the end-product of the denim journey. This week we’d like to put the spotlight on a pair that’s still in the early stages of development.

That’s not to say that the jeans aren’t faded. In fact, they’re off to a very promising start. Sent to us all the way from Indonesia by @frankybujungkyo, his pair of SExFHxRJB jeans have made some great progress in only a few short months.

In case you’re unsure, the SExFHxRJB jeans are a special collaboration between SelfEdge, Flat Head and Real Japan Blues. For this project, SelfEdge and Flat Head designed a new cut and used a new denim created by RJB to produce what are already turning out to be some amazing jeans. Many thanks to Franky for sending these photos our way!

Note: Do you have a denim that you think would be perfect for our Fade Friday? If so, feel free to send our way to [email protected]!
