With all the natural indigo denim being released of late, you might be wondering what the fading potential it holds. If this happens to be the case, look no further than this edition of Fade Of The Day, brought to us by Ryan Austin, of Seattle. Ryan has been riding the natural indigo wave in this pair of Naked & Famous Skinny Guy Natural Indigo for an impressive six years, leaving them with some sick fades and battle scars.
Being Ryan’s go to denim for over half a decade, these jeans have seen all sorts of wear, from hiking to fishing trips. Straight, symmetrical whiskers cover the thighs, which have faded so much they’ve started to develop some small nicks and holes. And on the reverse, we have Naked & Famous’ trademark honeycombs—tight and stacked.
And forget pocket fades, Ryan’s wallet has practically burst through the back right pocket. The crotch has held up strong, though, so here’s to many more years of natural indigo goodness.
