Fade Friday – Oldblue Co. Heavyweight Edition 21/23 oz. (2 Years, 3 Months, Unknown Washes)
The punches in bunches keep on coming from Indonesia, as this week’s Fade Friday is here to school you on how to wear down a pair of heavyweight jeans.This pair of Oldblue Co. Heavyweight Editions are a respectable two years in and are clearly grail status.
Owner Syaiful Anwar washed these jeans “countless” times, in his words. He’s given them repairs at the crotch, along the cuffs, and on the back pockets. The two patches have aged well, and both in unique ways; one smoothly, and the other with a nice crinkle.
The result of Anwar’s wear, washes, and repairs is a beautiful pair of jeans that ticks off all the right boxes: defined whiskers, 3D honey combs, train tracks, worn away arcuates, fading on the selvedge line itself, and even some little stacks. We salute you Anwar, for this pair of jeans.
