Fade Friday – Self Edge x Flat Head x Real Japan Blues (21 Months, Washes Unknown)

This might not be the first time we’ve featured the Self Edge x Flat Head x Real Japan Blues collaborative denim for Fade Friday, but this pair’s contrast and fade patterns were so vivid that it was hard not to give it some attention.

Using a unique 14 Oz. unsanforized, rope-dyed denim developed by Real Japan Blues, the SExFHxRJB is designed to worn comfortably in warmer weather but still evolve similar to any pair of Flat Head jeans. The denim also marks Self Edges first collaboration with two brands at once and is finished with some very clean details, such as the indigo-colored arc stitching.

This specific pair belongs to flickr user, jtgagarin, and unfortunately not much is known about them aside from being worn for 21 months. Be sure to visit his flickr page and scan through his other raw denim photographs, including this mean looking pair of Strike Gold‘s that are well on their way to joining Fade Friday.
