Yes, they’re real, and they’re spectacular. Heddels reader Prima Yudha has put his pair of Mischief Denim Premium Grade Series SL-002 jeans through their paces over the last 14 months. Two soaks and rinses have been recorded to date and there’s very little of the original dye left to speak of.
Those badass honeycombs are geometric in appearance and have serious tonal contrasts. The seat fades are significant with the pocket blowout punctuating the look. As for the lap fades, the fabric is almost white in places and the whiskers are beginning to disappear as the fades deepen.
Prima being a photographer, he often spends a lot of time crouching or kneeling, and we can only surmise these daily movements played into his achieving such heavy fades in a short time.
