It’s not everyday that fades obtained with under six months of wear make it into our inbox, but today is a well deserved exception. Worn by Bill Whitesquale from Boston for only five months with no sight of water yet, these Gap 1969 Slim Fit Japanese Selvedge jeans have earned their spot very quickly in the span of denim evolution.

While the noticeable fading on the seat, back pockets, and knees are impressive, one more subtle detail to check out is the changing of indigo hues. From that brand new dark raw color to a rich, deep royal blue in the thighs and legs, this pair’s got it all. We can’t wait to see how they look in another five months (and then some)!
