Olivier Gandon bought this pair of Momotaro 0305-50 jeans back in 2014, and it would be an understatement to say he’s put them to good use since. Much of the dye has been washed out in all the right places leading to frame-worthy fade patterns.
The subtle whiskering and deep lap fades are matched by well-defined honeycombs and seat fading. Having diligently documented his jeans’ history on the pocket bag, Olivier has cleverly kept a record of the three washes and two soaks. As with any pair of jeans that receive daily use over two years, repairs are in order to give them another life.
In this case, the crotch and rear pockets have been patched with excess denim from a previous hem alteration. What we’re left with is a solid pair of jeans that show individual character which will surely develop even further with more wear and repair.
