Fade Friday – Baldwin Henley Nihon Menpu (8 Months, 2 Washes)

Today’s Fade Friday features a finely aged pair of Baldwin Henley Nihon Menpu. The owner, forum user cincinnatus, carefully documented the progress of these jeans over the course of eight months. Despite being worn only lightly and needing only preemptive crotch and pocket repairs, the denim has faded surprisingly elegantly.

Vibrant electric blues streak against a dark navy background creating stunning effects. Especially notable are the smooth fades of the whiskers. Though these jeans have had a long journey thus far, they still look like they have plenty of life left in them.
