Fade Friday – A.P.C. Petit Standard (3 Years, 1 Month, 3 Washes)

It’s Friday and we’ve got more on our minds than just what’s happening this weekend. Take for example this absolutely destroyed pair of A.P.C. Petit Standard‘s submitted by Jared Goldstein from NYC. In three years time these babies have seen the world, from Israel to Mexico and beyond. From college classrooms, to hiking (and biking), these jeans even graduated and made it to law school!

As if the almost complete loss of indigo in the thighs and butt isn’t rad enough, check out the before and after photos of one of the gnarliest rips and repairs we have ever seen! Repaired by the experts at A.P.C. themselves, they even admitted that this was one of the craziest jobs they have done to date.

Now let’s talk dedication for a second. Up until they earned that epic battle wound, Jared wore these jeans for 295 (that’s 2.5 years) straight–consecutively. He didn’t take a break or let them sit for even one day, and these fades prove it. Cheers Jared, and happy Fade Friday!
