Fade of the Day – Howies Kuroki (18 Months, 4 Washes)

In my opinion, one of the coolest features you’ll find on any pair of worn in jeans is the denim texture. It varies in so many ways depending on where it came from, how it was made, and of course, how it looks after it’s been worn. Today’s Fade of the Day was sent to us by Vincenzo Enormous from Windsor, UK, and shows his pair of Howies Kuroki jeans.

He has worn them for the majority of the last 18 months with no repairs and no complaints so far. Overall, the jeans have lightened up a few shades of indigo in this time, and that Kuroki Mills denim texture is really starting to shine through. And thanks to Vincenzo, we can all see how well they fit too!
