Fade of the Day – Samurai Jeans S710XX (7 Months, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)

Since their birth in 1997, Samurai Jeans have cemented their place in denim culture, known for heavier fabrics that produce stellar fades. For this edition of Fade Of The Day, we have a pair of the coveted Samurai S710XX that come to us from Javano Lango, of Indonesia.

When wearing raw denim jeans, one of the most exciting points is when you’ve broken the denim in, they’ve moulded to your legs and you can see the fades coming through. This is exactly where Javano is after seven months of wear, seven days a week. The lap is covered in whiskers-to-be, with subtle striations developing down the thighs. The indigo is still rich and dark after one wash and one soak, but the seat is is starting to show some dye loss, and the honeycomb creases are deep and well on their way to epic-ness.

With all the potential we’re seeing here, Javano has some grail fades to look forward to, and we would love to see how these have shaped up in a year’s time.
