Fade of the Day – Levi’s 501 STF (3 Years, 3 Washes, 2 Soaks)

We can always rely on the iconic Levi’s to satisfy our daily fade needs, and we have a pair of well-loved 501 STFs to see us through today. Coming to us from an anonymous denimhead, these Levi’s have seen three years of wear and they’ve picked up some solid fades along the way, thus earning them today’s Fade Of The Day.

This entry might be light on details, but it’s the rough, marbled texture of the denim that caught our eye when we saw these 501s. The dye loss is pretty even after three washes and two soaks, but striking white clawmarks can be seen on the lap, which is rough ‘n’ faded. Some faint honeycombs can be seen behind the knees and, to top it off, we’ve got some lovely vintage-style roping on the seams of the yoke.
