Fade of the Day – Kaiga Denim Asahi (7 Months, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)

Kaiga Denim Asahi Before

Today’s Fade of the Day was sent to us by Tafi Khulafa from Indonesia, where he wore these Kaiga Denim Asahi‘s for seven months straight with a single wash and soak. He walks a lot every day, and sent us photos from a few different stages of his timeline, which is helpful for any potential customers interested in the fading potentials of this brand. One thing is for sure: they’ve lightened up in a short period of time while remaining super contrasted in the whiskers and back pocket fades.

It seems we have struck a goldmine for smaller label Indonesian denim brands as of late, but none have failed to impress. While the red stitching detail on the back right pocket and the stealth arcs that show through with wear aren’t the most original, they definitely look good on these jeans.
