Fade Friday – Sage Marcher (3 Years, 2 Washes)

We don’t always see Sage denim in our inbox, but when we do, it’s usually worthy of a Fade Friday. This gnarly submission was sent over to us by Farid Hardiansyah of Indonesia, where he wore these Marchers for the last three years, earning some crazy fades along the way.

When it comes to how, exactly, Farid got these killer wear marks, there really isn’t any big secret. He simply wore them to school and work regularly over the years and let life do the rest. The resulting indigo loss is highly impressive, with some stark contrast in tones throughout this pair. While the thighs and seat are worn down to almost white, there are pockets of dark indigo left in the whiskers, lower legs, and honeycombs, which really make these jeans pop.

Three years and two crotch repairs later, and Farid still rocks these with pride. Rightfully so, brother.
