Fade of the Day – Levi’s 511 Wet Indigo (1 Year, 2 Washes)

If the Levi’s 511 Rigid Dragons from earlier this week aren’t quite your style but you’re still looking for an affordable option with plenty of fade potential, check out today’s Fade of the Day – a pair of Levi’s 511 Wet Indigo‘s. Sent to us by Anthony Bischoff from Miami, Florida, these jeans earned their fades (and countless repairs) having been put to work at a furniture store which means you guessed it- lots of lifting, bending, crouching, and did I mention lifting?

In Anthony’s free time away from the store, he enjoys camping and being outside. All repairs were made himself, including the awesome darning seen on the pocket bags. In this well-documented case study, he notes that he has owned these jeans for over three years, but has put 365 full days of wear on them, leading to one gorgeous pair of denim with a great story to tell. The moral of this story- if you can find these jeans, they just might be worth picking up. Keep up with Anthony on Instagram!
