Fade of the Day – Gilded Age Raw Red Selvedge Baxten (4 Years, 9 Months, 2 Washes, 1 Soak)

5 years is quite a commitment to a pair of jeans. But that’s exactly what we love and today’s Fade of the Day is just that. This pair of Gilded Age Raw Red Selvedge Baxten jeans have held strong for almost 5 years with 2 years of dutiful wear before becoming a part of a jean rotation.

Carrying several knives which were rotated between the pockets, reader Evan Blanshan produced some idiosyncrasies at the coin pocket and rear pockets. He’s had them repaired at Denim Therapy several times and has only washed them twice, the first after 2 years of wear and in the Pacific Ocean.
