Fade of the Day – Upper Class UC-S3 (8 months, 1 soak, 1 wash)

We all arrive in the world of raw denim in our own way, and each one of us has a story to tell about that. For reader Samora Bazarrabusa of Zurich, Switzerland, it started when he was a teenager riding the tram. He saw large graffiti by Upper Class then, which “blew his mind,” in his own words. When he got word that the same Upper Class artists were making their own jeans, his mind was blown again.

Samora has worn this pair of UC-S3s for 8 months while traveling, painting, partying, hiking, and more. As an artist, he’s kept a sketchbook in his back right pocket, which has even produced its own fade mark.

Check out Samora’s artwork on Instagram.
