Fikri Arifin hasn’t owned and wore these jeans for no more than nine months and they’ve already faded to a surprising state. With only one sea wash, the heavyweight, unsanforized Sage Highlander’s have lost plenty of indigo, so much so that one might assume they’ve been worn for a much longer period of time.
No matter though, they’re still an impressive sight to be seen. Stacked honeycombs speak to how much wear Fikri puts into his Highlanders, while the deep, uneven lap fades and whiskers are further evidence to the rigours of life in the tropical heat of Indonesia.
