Fade Friday – Unbranded UB122 (1 Year, 10 Months, 2 Washes, 2 Soaks)
Noorsyazwan Sumsudin has been rocking his Unbranded UB122‘s for nearly two years and has put these jeans through their paces. Only a couple washes and soaks have been recorded, including a sea wash in Bali, which have all aided in developing deep and pronounced fades. The highly contrasting honeycombs in particular are tightly stacked and well defined with some light whiskering, too.
The fairly consistent loss of indigo throughout makes it difficult to argue with the notion that heavier denim generates better fades. Perhaps daily wear in the humidity of Singapore adds to the equation, but overall these Fade Friday jeans are certainly something Noorsyazwan can be proud of.
