Fade Friday – Samurai Fire Element (2 Years, Many Washes)

Today’s Fade Friday comes by way of SuperFuture member Gilangaditya. The Indonesian denim-head has consistently produced pair after pair of inspirational denim, and has effortlessly earned his spot in our weekly feature.

After 2 years of consistent wear, Gilangaditya’s pair of Samurai Jeans’ Fire Element jeans are a work to behold. The grainy atari and vertical fading stand testament to the possibilities of Japanese denim and serve as a reminder that hard-worn and well-washed denim can produce amazing results.

The Fire Element jeans are part of Samurai’s Go-Rin-No-Sho collection, released in 2010, which included a pair of jeans for each element of the “Book of Five Rings”, written by legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi.

Samurai also released jeans for the remainder of the the books: Earth, Water, Wind, and the mysterious-sounding Void.
