Fade of the Day – Levi’s 501 STF (2 Years, 2 Washes, 2 Soaks)
Graham tells us he bought the jeans, soaked them warm, put them on until they dried out and wore them pretty much non-stop thereafter. It shows, with a nice range of indigo loss throughout the pant, defined stacks, honeycombs, and whiskers, plus a blown-out crotch and other damange that could be perfect fodder for some interesting repair work.
All-purpose usage also tends to develop more asymmetrical fading, which we are particularly keen on, as it makes the jeans all the more personalized and unique. Case-in-point: a cameo from the seldom seen calf muscle fade. Although, we’re more than a bit puzzled as to what would make the right calf that much more pronounced than the left. Graham’s a skater and pushes with his right leg? Your guess is as good as ours.
