Fade of the Day – Japan Blue JB0213 (3.5 Years, Unknown Washes)

Wake up and smell the raw denim, it’s time for our Fade of the Day! These Japan Blue JB0213’s come to us from Jackie Pettitt in Australia and have got vintage fades all over.

The Japan Blue JB0213 uses a lightweight, left hand twill, dark indigo stretch denim, and while the stretch probably didn’t help much with the fades, the left hand twill, countless washes, and daily wear really helped make these a soft, classic looking pair of blue jeans.

The most notable areas of wear are in the seat and the knees, where the indigo has worn down to reveal pops of sky blue that, with a little more age, will turn fully white. Some subtle honeycombs and whiskering have set in, and luckily no repairs have been needed, likely thanks to regular washing, ensuring plenty more fades in the future.
