Fade of the Day – UES 400T (10 Months, 8 Washes, 2 Soaks)

We love seeing contest jeans because, let’s face it, they feature some of the best-looking fades around (isn’t that the point?). RD reader Florian Leikam from Germany sent us these shots of his UES 400T‘s that he wore for 10 months straight with numerous washes for the SUFU UES 400T Contest. The patch has almost completely fallen away from the water and wear, and the rich shades of indigo are really popping through in the thighs and hems. It’s hard to imagine what these bad boys might look like in another 10 months!
