Fade Friday – Acne “Max Raw” (11 Months, 1 Wash)

This week’s Fade Friday features a pair of Acne Max Raw, a slim-fitting, low rise jean from the Swedish denim designers. This particular pair has been worn most days for almost a year (clocking in just under 12 months) and has recently undergone it’s 5th crotch blowout repair.

There are nice wallet and phone fades set in on both back pockets, and the whiskers and combs are starting to make themselves rather apparent. The leather patch has aged beautifully as well.

Considering they weren’t the heaviest denim in the first place, they’re a great option for those wanting to enter the raw denim world without a painful first month or two.
