Fade of the Day – Denham Bolt VJS (1 Year, 2 Washes, 1 Soak)

Raw denim can fade. It can also tear, rip, and blow out. Yet, it’s these imperfections – and the resulting repairs – that help make a pair of jeans even more personal. With that said, today’s fade is a patched-up pair of Denham Bolt VJS’s that comes to us from reader Wouter Kaan of The Netherlands.

Kaan wore this pair of jeans for one year exactly, giving them their first soak at the six-month mark. Since then he has torn and repaired both knees, a back pocket, and the crotch. Kaan opted for some vintage-style sewing repairs, which have given these jeans a rather charming, old-timey quality. Not to mention the killer fades he’s achieved, too.
