For all we talk and think about raw denim, the secret to great fades is really quite simple: Patience. The folks who patiently don their jeans every day get the sweetest of fades, and hopefully a spot in our Fade of the Day.
Ru-Ching Chen of Ohio shows us that old-fashioned dedication is the best way to get rockin’ fades. He’s only had his pair of Momotaro 0305TN for ten months, but he’s worn them every day except when they were out for repairs. He’s even disciplined with his tools, clipping his everyday carry kit to his jeans for a unique fade.
Reminder for the next time you’re tempted to get a new pair of jeans, if you want fades like this, you’re going to have to focus.
