Fade of the Day – Pure Blue Japan XX-015 (2 Years, 4 Washes)

When you wear the same pair of jeans every day of the week until they are thrashed so hard that they physically cannot be worn any longer, it’s time to make a choice. Either get a new pair of jeans or hand them off to the denim experts for surgery. Tyler from Indigo Proof was kind enough to give us the full story on this pair of Pure Blue Japan XX-015‘s.

All truths told we have actually featured this pair of jeans before. You would never know it though as they have gone through such major structural changes in the last year alone that they look like a completely different pair of jeans.

The photos you see now were taken before and after their third trip in for repairs, and if you look closely you might find more darning and stitching than actual denim. The fades are heavy throughout, and there’s no doubt in my mind that this owner isn’t throwing in the towel anytime soon. Denim Frankenstein lives!
