One thing about owning a pair of jeans like A.P.C.‘s is the inevitable and seemingly endless fade inspiration you will see online from others who own the same jeans. While it may be frustrating at times, the glory is well worth the wait.

Today’s Fade of the Day features a pair of Petit Standard‘s that are still young in their fading lifespan, but show a ton of potential regardless. Worn for seven months by Nathan Fetsch from Washington state, these jeans are in that magical limbo state where the most stressed points such as the back wallet pocket and knees really begin to shed indigo. The creases in the honeycombs are set and already the crotch is showing signs of an impending blowout, but the best fades are yet to come.
