Fade Friday – Unbranded 21 Oz. 121 Skinny (2.5 Months, No Washes)

As much as we love any beautifully beat-up pair of raw denim for our weekly Fade Friday, it’s always a treat when it comes from one of our very own readers on our forum. Courtesy of user, Grimtomato, we cast this week’s spotlight on his pair of Unbranded 21 Oz. 121 Skinny denim that he’s been wearing daily for just approximately 2.5 months (note: we say “approximately” since we’re not 100% certain of when he started wearing them).

As a participant of the Heavyweight Denim Championship 2 (HWDC2), Grimtomato has managed to develop some impressive fades and creases in a extremely short amount of time. He’s also gone the extra mile and maintained detailed notes of his denim’s evolution which, rather than us copying and pasting, we recommend you check out.

Be sure not to miss his “fade analysis“, and for all the DIY folks out there, take a close look at the leather belt and keychain accessory that’s made himself, as well as his Imgur profile to view his other projects.
