Fade Friday – Levi’s 501 STF (6 Months, 1 Soak, 1 Beach Wash)

As his first pair of raw denim, tony51d initially learned about the Levi’s 501 STF from the  Put This On” Denim Special. After daily wear, he eventually saw signs of wear around the six month mark (note: for more on when you should wash your raw denim, check out our rough guide).

Though his Levi’s were beginning to wear, the six month point was well timed with a trip to Virginia Beach; leading him to do one thing and one thing only – take them for a beach wash!
