Fade Friday – Nobrandedon Japanese Akita Hachiko TJA501XX (1 Year, 2 Washes, 1 Soak)

There are people who wear jeans hard and then there are people like Tori who are on another level. Tori has had these Nobrandedon Japanese Akita‘s for only 12 months and they look like he’s had them for decades. The entire back of the jean has zero remnants of the original color with honeycombs that have been carved into the denim and stack to mid thigh. The front of the jean is faded from top to bottom with heavy whiskers at the top, overlapping honeycombs wrapping around from the back, and solid stacks near the hems.

It’s the third time we’ve seen this particular pair of jeans, and it’s amazing to witness their evolution. For the rest of his submissions, you can see his jeans at 6 months, and at 8 months.

Well done Tori, well done.
