Fade Friday – Japan Blue x Blue Owl JBO-420 (1.5 Years, 8 Washes, 1 Soak)

It’s Friday, and you’re hopefully getting ready for a great weekend ahead. But before you do, have a look at this week’s Fade Friday, featuring an insane pair of Japan Blue x Blue Owl JBO-420s submitted by Skylar Pederson of o’ Canada. Talk about the right fades in the right places, with plenty of great detail shots to prove it.

Worn for just a year and a half with plenty of washes along the way, these jeans saw Skylar’s final year of high school and, shortly after, they were taken for a trip abroad to the likes of Italy, Hungary, New Zealand, Austria, and even their home country of Japan! Our guess is all those miles helped contribute to the awesomeness we are seeing today, with picture-perfect thigh whiskers leading down to some hole-y white knees, as well as bright faded back pockets, honeycombs aplenty and stacks for days.

They’ve seen no repairs yet, but are beginning to show some damage in the inseam that will surely need to be mended if they take on any more worldly tours soon.
