Fade Friday – Red Cloud R400H (1 Year, 2 Months, Unknown Washes)
Slub-a-dub-dub, have we got some slubby jeans for you in today’s fade. This pair of Red Cloud R400H jeans comes to us from Ian Greer of Washington State, and it’s a streaky work of art with some nice patchwork to boot. After 14 months, and an unknown number of washes, they’ve developed some knee holes, but were repaired with selvedge denim, and some Japanese wave-pattern fabric for a nice wabi-sabi effect, if you will.
The whiskers have achieved a solid contrast, and the honeycombs are very pronounced and nice. There’s even tight roping on the hem that’s starting to tear in a satisfying way. However, the real story of these jeans is the slub, and that broken twill, an almost clashing combination of patterns. Red Cloud‘s denim on these is the real deal and the wear Ian put into them has let this outstanding denim shine.
