Fade of the Day – Gap 1969 Slim Fit Japanese Selvedge (2 Years, 6 Months, 1 Soak)
Gap may not be one of the small niche Japanese brands that gets us salivating, nor is it a dedicated heritage brand relentless in the pursuit of authenticity. In spite of this, we can’t deny that they make a decent jean at a price that the masses can afford.
These Gap 1969 Slim Japanese Selvedge jeans come to us today from David Eunson in Scotland and show us that the corporate giants can dish out some notable fades. Eunson’s worn his pair for 2 years and 6 months in rotation with only a single soak. What’s resulted is a great all around fade with some particularly white knees. He attributes the knee fades to raising his children- a running theme among denim-loving parents.
In addition to his home repairs, he does a bit of DIY with leather goods, which you can check out on his tumblr.
