Rocking out music venues around North Carolina has made this pair of Levi’s Matchstick Selvedge jeans today’s Fade of the Day. Reader Danny Johnson has worn his jeans for over 4 years with 4 washes and 4 soaks while playing with his band Jack the Radio. Over time, he’s earned some solid honeycombs and roping. And, when he’s not melting faces around the Tar Heel state, he’s taking trips to the Denim Doctor or is at home hand darning and sashiko stitching his jeans. Stay raw and keep shredding!
