Fade Friday – Roy RN04 (4 Years, Unknown Washes)

Thrash ’em if you got ’em! This week’s Fade Friday features a pair of well worn Roy RN04’s from Kaleb Perdue of Atlanta, Georgia. After four years of wear, Kaleb has these jeans looking like they’ve lived well beyond their years.

The knees and crotch have taken the most abuse, as evidenced by the serious crotch blow outs and torn knees. There is patching all throughout the lap and seat as well, which were repaired by a local friend of Kaleb’s.

What is most surprising is how much indigo is still left in the legs despite these jeans being worn and washed so much. Rounding things out, you can see evidence from various cuffs with distressing at the point where the ankle cuffs would fold and even a little stacking on top of that.
