Fade of the Day – Nudie Jeans Co. Tape Ted 16 Dips Dry (11 Months, 0 Washes)

Nudie Jeans Co. Tape Ted 16 Dips Dry Before

Not one dip, not two dips, or three; that’s 16 dips of indigo for today’s fade, brought to us by Alvi Chandra of Indonesia. Alvi’s been wearing these jeans every day to work and school for the past 11 months with no washes or soaks so far.

Along with a few crotch repairs, he’s clearly done some repair work on the phone fade, which has put two holes in the lap. The honeycombs have set in, and there’s some strong fading on the back pockets. Here’s hoping we see this pair in another year with some washes on it and plenty more fades.
