Fade Friday – Levi’s 513 (1 Year, 4 Washes)
It goes without saying that Levi’s is a name that needs no introduction. From their workwear origins to the competitively-priced fashion titan that they have become, they’ve set a high standard for denim goods. This week, we’ll be taking a look at a beautifully worn in pair of 513s; a slim-straight, mid-rise option.
This pair comes from our Johann Kim, who purchased the 513 Rigid Selvedge at a local Levi shop for $75.00. Despite the potential issues with Levi’s raw options being allegedly washed and treated, Johann took the plunge and gave them a go.
His first wash came at 4 months with cold water and light detergent, followed by another at 6 months (which he attributes to some rigorous physical activity, including racquetball which he so eloquently put was “for lols”), and a subsequent ocean wash, which he used our guide to accomplish. Since then he has washed his denim every 3 months.
