Fade of the Day – Japan Blue x Momotaro JB0701  (4 Years, 1 Month, Unknown Washes)

These Japan Blue Momotaro JB0701 jeans have been up in the air and around the world countless times. That’s because the owner, Alex Lopoukhine, works in the travel industry. And, after cruising 30,000 feet up and 4 years in, his jeans have turned into a sky blue hue.

Not only have they seen the world, but they’ve seen Alex into fatherhood and are officially dad jeans. After first purchasing his jeans, he had them tapered but unfortunately lost the selvedge in the process, a slip he’s come to accept and even to appreciate. As to be expected, he’s had several repairs at both the crotch and knees. But, with the countless memories imprinted into these jeans, he says he refuses to give up on them.
