Fade of the Day – Oni 552 (10 Months, 3 Washes, 1 Soak)

Wearing your jeans every day is the only prescription when it comes to raw denim. Results will vary but you can be well on your way to greater fades down the line. For Sandika Akbar, 10 months was all he needed to develop some healthy fades.

With 3 washes and a single soak under his belt, his Oni 552‘s have maintained an overall brighter blue with the lightest areas at the thighs. Up close, you can really see the texture of Oni’s “Secret Denim” come to life with plenty of slub. In another 10 months’ time, we can only imagine that there won’t be much indigo left.
