Fade of the Day – Flint and Tinder Valor (3 years, Unknown Washes)
We always enjoy adding a new brand to our Fade Of The Day ranks, and this time around we get our first pair of Flint and Tinder, thanks to Rob Buller in Ohio.
He’s had F&T’s Valor model, which has now gone out of production, for three years, however, just by looking at them you’d think they were found deep in the dark shaft of an abandoned mine. While he’s worn his Valor’s plenty for weekends and nights out, the real heavy lifting for his collection of heavy duty distress points, stains, and fades is the hard work he’s done in them, namely welding and fabrication.
The sweet spot in this pair is quite clearly the thigh area where the majority of all that action (and the needed repairs, thanks to his wife) are located, and lets not forget those nice whiskers, too. All in all a pair of jeans that are beat to hell—just like we like ’em!
