Fade of the Day – Somét 003 (6.5 Years, Unknown Washes, 7 Soaks)

Six years old, my how they grow up so fast. This pair of Somét 003’s comes to us from Roger L. and it’s a multi-year project, to say the least. For the first year, he only wore them for “clean” activities, such as going to school or hanging out with friends (he used a pair of A.P.C.‘s for his “dirty” work as a barista). Since then, he’s worn these jeans often, kept them dry, and hung them up at the end of each day.

The whiskers and honeycombs look crispy, the knees have faded down well, and he’s even got some stacking at the hems. Needless to say, he’s achieved quite a lot over the last six years–due in part to Denim Therapy‘s masterful repairs–and still has wearable jeans to show for it.
