Fade of the Day – 3sixteen+ 21BSP (~2 years, 5 Washes, 1 Soak)

Columbus, Ohio resident Zach Tugaoen took a break from his med school studies to graciously send in the progress of his 3sixteen+’s. We happened to like his homework so we thought we’d bestow him with the grade of: Fade of the Day.

With just a year’s worth of walks to and from the library, with a hike or two thrown in, Zach’s been able to not only coax some nice fades but also leach enough denim to showcase a heavy dose of streaky vertical falling, a hallmark to this particular Japanese denim.

The added texture sets this pair apart from the rest, and the high level of indigo retention is going to really make those budding fades shine in the months and years to come. A+, Zach.
