Today’s Fade of the Day is actually a twofer and the patinated pair comes from Monte Jensen of Denton, Texas. Going on a year, he’s worn the Bell & Oak Standard Natural Belt from it’s natural veg-tan state to the well-worn state we see here with certain portions nearly black.
The story is the same, but even more pronounced with his Mulberry Wallet. With three distinct sections of patina, it’s like a triptych of tones. Though the original version didn’t have the snap ring, Jensen added it later on, making this piece even more his own.
