Fade of the Day – Samurai Jeans S0500XX (1.5 Years, 10 Washes, 1 Soak)

Time for your daily dose of sweet denim fades with this pair of Samurai Jeans S0500XXs. Heddels reader Andreas Raisch has worn them diligently for the last year and a half, earning those personalized wear marks that we all love to see, and a spot in our Fade of the Day.

Working as a biologist, Andreas tells us that his Sams see daily wear on the job which often includes field work–a career that certainly helped contribute to his successful fades. His other activities span from working on a boat to skateboarding and hanging with friends, and over time he has attained some nice, even fading through the thighs and seat, which transitions down into matching picture-book honeycombs. The front pockets show what appears to be a distinct phone outline, and these jeans have been repaired multiple times, including one crotch blow out fix. You gotta keep ’em alive to let the fades thrive.
