Fade of the Day – Aye Denim Noble Grand (14 Months, 4 Washes)

More fresh fades from Indonesia! These Aye Denim Noble Grands were submitted by Nicholas Vallen, an art and design student who is here to say that you don’t need to thrash your jeans to earn some gnarly fades. After seeing these photos, I would tend to agree.

Nicholas has worn these jeans for 14 months and in that time has done countless paintings, murals, and other works that have all contributed to his own personalized fades. These aren’t your normal dirty fades defined by oil and grit, instead they’re ingrained with paint that has even begun to fade, too. Super contrasty whiskers and honeycombs, and practically faded to white in the knees, seat and thighs, he could have told us he tamed lions in the Sahara for a living and we would have believed it.

You can check out some of Nicholas’ artwork on his Instagram.
