Fade Friday – Wings+Horns 5 Pocket Skinny (3.5 Months, 0 Washes)

As we mentioned in a recent post, not all Fade Fridays have to feature heavily faded denim. This week is another great example of early fading that has a lot of potential down the road. Sent to us by our reader Tafiya, his wings + horns 5 Pocket Skinny jeans have seen a lot of action in their few short months of wear.

As a dedicated B-Boy, Tafiya has put these jeans through their paces at regular practices, as well a number of breakdancing competitions and shows. He also tells us that he’s able to use the different fades to remember some of his dance moves! (The merits of raw denim never cease to amaze.)

wings + horns is a Canadian brand that combines the quality and aesthetic of Japanese fashion with its distinctly Canadian heritage. The jeans, themselves, are made in Japan and feature a slightly stretchy raw denim which is perfect for bustin’ a move the uses of B-Boys and other active raw denim enthusiasts.
