Fade Friday – Old Blue Co. 21/23oz. Beast (1 year, 3 washes, 1 soak)

Some jeans are worn for comfort, some are worn for work, and some are worn for glory. This pair falls squarely into that last camp. Adli Rafdi wore this pair of Old Blue Co. Beast 21oz. pre-wash/23oz. post-wash jeans for a year in Yogyakarta, Indonesia (a great place to fade jeans, not a great place to break the law).

To give you an example of Adli’s dedication, the forecast for today in Yogyakarta is 85 degrees Fahrenheit with 80% humidity and a 90% chance of rain. Despite a climate that would render raw denim prohibitive for most wearers, Adli soldiered on with his jeans every day. The contrast will forever be his glory.
