Fade of the Day – Pure Blue Japan xx-011 (1 Year, 4 Washes, 1 Soak)

We love a good Pure Blue Japan submission and these are no exception. Ian Lyu from South Korea has worn these for a year and if you’re wondering how he got them to look like they do, its simple– he just enjoys them.

PBJ’s are known for their slubbiness which contributes to the specific look of these jeans. The knee and thigh fade are coming in really nicely and we are seeing the foundation of some hard whiskers. The honey combs are what we love about this particular entry because it’s only been a year and this pair has plenty of life left in them!

Keep wearing and stay raw, Ian!
