Fade of the Day – Momotaro x The Denim Store (14 Months, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)

Today’s Fade of the Day is a collaborative jean between Momotaro and The Denim Store, originally released in 2013. Worn for 14 months by Tom Wei Liang, friend and customer of TDS, his pair has only touched water twice – once for a wash and once for a soak. It’s the tightest fit Momotaro has ever made and the tightly packed honeycombs are telling of this. Right now, it looks like he’s at the stage right before fades start getting super intense. But a little further down the road, the fades will really show off those 18 oz.
