Fade of the Day – Oni 517 (3 Years, 4 Washes)
Oni is here in all its demonic glory for this edition of Fade of the Day, with a pair of Oni 517 that belong to Staffan Nillsson of Stockholm, Sweden. And in trademark fashion, the coarse, slubby denim has produced some solid fades after just over three years of wear.
Staffan wears these jeans for the daily grind of his office job, but also in his spare time, and recently that spare time has been spent renovating his house. In terms of fades, we’ve got all the usual suspects here—a heavily faded lap, stacked up whiskers that span down the inner thighs, and some top-notch honeycombs which claw around to the well-faded knees. But what makes these Oni’s even more special is the extra details, like the defined stacking towards the hems, and faded calves.
The crotch has suffered a major blow out, but it looks to have been patched up nicely. Staffan didn’t mention anything about hanging these beauties up, so perhaps they will live through the house renovation and be ready for a framed spot on the wall.
