Fade of the Day – Akaime A710XX (16 Months, 3 Washes)
As is the case with many exceptional Fade of the Day features, pictures can speak louder than words. Heddels reader Ridzky Pratama of Indonesia, owner of this well-worn pair of Akaime A710XXs, didn’t have much to say in the intro, opting instead to let his jeans’ fades do the talking.
And no, he didn’t spill a bucket of bleach on his legs. Those are all-natural wear marks resulting in total indigo loss through the thighs and knees, rivaled by the deep-rooted indigo hues still present throughout the whiskers and creases. The seat and back pockets suffered similar wear, but again, the amount of contrast that remains is truly impressive, leading down to picture perfect honeycombs and some more subtle stacking near the ankles.
