Today’s Fade Of The Day was sent to us by Singapore’s Z K Lam, casting a light on his seven-month-old Thin Finn’s by Nudie Jeans.
Z K tells us his fades have developed mainly from walking and cycling, which makes sense in light of the extreme stretching at the knee, tight honeycombs, and developing whiskers. Contrast isn’t super high, but that’ll certainly come in time—Z K merely needs to continue as he is.
The most indigo depletion is in the seat, common for cyclists, and his rear end fades have developed around a back pocket blow out, which sits alongside a very interesting triangular fade. Perhaps a key holder or a bike tool? Along the same lines, we see a circular ‘dip’ fade in the right front pocket, breaking up those nice whiskers in the lap.
At a mere seven months, these likely have a lot of life left in them.
