Courtesy of forum user, Zin, this week’s instalment of Fade Friday is focused on a pair of Edwin ED-49 after approximately 7 months of wear and no washes. Though we wish we had more information on the denim, unfortunately little is known in terms of what activities were done in them. Zin was also unable to pinpoint the exact length of wear since he’s also working on a pair of Edwin Nashville.
An anagram of the word “denim” with the “m” inverted, Edwin has been in operation for nearly 70 years and grown to become one of the most successful premium Japanese in foreign markets. Among their various models, the ED-49 is one of the most popular; offering a regular and relaxed fit cut with mid-rise and slight taper.
What makes this particular ED-49 unique, however, lies within the selvedge detailing. Rather than utilizing a more common red, blue, or other solid colour selvedge line, this denim boasts a proprietary three-way rainbow selvedge that Edwin originally created in the 1960’s.
