Fade of the Day – Oldblue Co. 19 oz. Indonesian Selvedge (16 Months, 5 Washes, 9 Soaks)

Heavyweight denim has a penchant for producing high contrast fades, especially when it’s being worn in Indonesia. Today’s Fade of the Day, however, shows that this heavyweight tendency can be tamed.

Reader Anngi Kusuma of Indonesia has been wearing this pair of Oldblue Co. 19 oz. Indonesian Selvedge jeans for 16 months, and with 5 washes and 9 soaks, has achieved some restrained, yet killer fades.

Oldblue co. focus on classic American workwear with the aesthetic of times past, and these jeans have some real cowboy vibes going on with the faded lap, heavily distressed knees, and the overall vintage, washed color.  Wearing them mostly on weekends, Anngi gets around on a motorcycle which has helped promising whiskers and honeycombs starting to set in. With no repairs needed yet, these have plenty of time left to develop into something truly beautiful.

You can follow Anngi on Instagram.
