Fade Friday – The Strike Gold SG1101 (3 Years, 4 Washes, 1 Soak)
This Fade Friday is pure gold–The Strike Gold, that is! Denim fan Randy Saputra of Indonesia has put in serious work on these SG1101s, clocking in at three years and four months of wear time, and he still keeps them in rotation to this day.
Heavy, dirty fades are the name of the game here, and we’re all about it. Looking like they were pulled off a turn-of-the-century farm, these jeans have been around the block and back a few times, and now don some really awesome wear marks. Those include heavy whiskering and seat fades, paired with picture-perfect honeycombs with a surprising amount of contrasting darker indigo still intact.
Randy mostly wore these jeans back in his days on campus, but still throws them on for weekend hangouts, allowing him to reminisce about their long journey together.
