Fade of the Day – Samurai S5000GX-M (5 Years, Unknown Washes, Unknown Soaks)

Samurai S5000GX-M Before

Nothing like a Samurai jean to brighten up your day, especially this one. Hario Prastowo from Indonesia was smart enough to snag these puppies while they were still in stock several years back and he’s been fading ever since.

Five years down and all of the original indigo is gone and faded into something we only see cheaply imitated at wash factories. The whiskers are staggered but slightly washed out by the intense lap fade. Hario’s honeycombs are nothing to take lightly either, making you wonder how he got them to this point.
