Fade Friday – Samurai Jeans S710XX (1.5 Years, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)
The heavyweight denim of Samurai’s jeans has produced so many sick fades over the years, and it’s back again for this weeks edition of Fade Friday. This pair of S710xx belong to Rizky Aulia, of Indonesia, who’s been wearing them daily for the past year and a half. Rizky describes Indonesia as “kinda hot”, and while this might be the understatement of the century, he can thank the heat and humidity of his homeland for helping produce these grail fades.
Rizky is a college student, and tells us these are his go-to jeans for daily wear on campus and general hang outs with friends. The lap and knees have faded to white, bringing contrast against the steely blue tone the denim has developed after just one soak and one wash. Whiskers span down the thighs, and wrap around to the seat, where the back pockets have faded just enough to reveal the indigo colored stealth arcs. And lastly, something no Fade Friday is complete without, stark, crispy honeycombs.
You can catch up with Rizky on Instagram.
