Fade of the Day – Unbranded UB201 (3 years, 3 washes, 2 soaks)

Fade of the Day – Unbranded UB201 (3 years, 3 washes, 2 soaks)

We never get tired of fade submissions. No two are alike and today’s pair of Unbranded UB201’s, submitted to our Mottainai contest, is just one more denim snowflake. With this pair, we see the toll everyday wear has taken. The thigh fade has just a trace of the original color and the honeycombs spill around the seams making you take a second look. The back pocket fades are white as well but show a beautiful transition down to the honeycombs.

This was the first pair of raw denim for this unnamed submitter and we couldn’t be more impressed!
