Fade of the Day – Eternal 811 BG 39″ Inseam (3 years, 8 Months, 1 Wash)

Some jeans fade to white in about a year, and some don’t; today’s FotD has admirably held on to its ink for nearly four years now. This pair of Eternal 811 BG comes to us from Joey Fletcher of Nashville, Tennessee. He started wearing these jeans in September 2012 as part of a rotation that saw them getting action about three times a week. Working in retail full-time, and as a laborer part-time, Joey was certainly up and about a lot in these.

The jeans didn’t touch water until December 2015 and were, Joey admits, stinky. They’ve also seen more than a dozen spot repairs, including some fetching reinforced pocket bags. The real story of these jeans, though, is perhaps how stubbornly they’ve held onto their indigo. With more future washes this will likely change, and the beautiful whiskers and honeycombs will pop along with that trademark Eternal texture.
