Fade of the Day – Blue Owl x Momotaro BOM008-S Skinny Straight (2.5 Years, 3 Washes, Unknown Soaks)
Prepare to go to battle with today’s fade, an electric blue pair of Momotaro featuring the brand’s distinctive “battle stripes.” This pair of Momotaro x Blue Owl BOM008 jeans has been taken to task over the last two and a half years by Robert Leahr, with repair work by NYC’s Denim Therapy.
That said, he’s not put them through serious abuse; Robert works 8-4 in front of a computer. The most strenuous work these jeans get is when he walks his dogs in them.
It just goes to show that you don’t need to fall off a skateboard or go cliff diving to achieve wonderful fades. The high contrast on these is helped out by the sulphur dyed black weft. The heavyweight denim also produced some cracking whiskers and honeycombs. The battle stripes are equally special too, as they’re beneath the pockets and have come through with wear.
Limited-time offer: if your denim is need of some much-needed TLC, you are in luck! Until September 5th, 2016, Heddels readers receive 20% off all of Denim Therapy‘s services (excluding shipping). Simply head over to their site and use the promo code, “Heddels16”.
