Samurai S0500XX (3 Years, 5 Months, 6 Washes, 1 Soak)

Nothing like a pair of faded Samurai‘s to brighten your day and end the year. Submitted by Alain Baburam from New York, this pair of S0500XX‘s has been wore nearly everyday for over three years. Alain is thinking about finally retiring these bad boys but we feel otherwise.

The whiskers are the first thing you look at and for good reason. They have little to no indigo left leaving sharp lines all the way to the seams. The honeycombs are staggered down the leg like they were pressed on with a hot iron. Even with several crotch blowouts and the seams starting to come undone, we think these should still be in the regular rotation.

You can keep up with Alain over on Instagram.
