Fade of the Day – Levi’s 501 STF (~3 Years, 5 Washes, 5 Soaks)

You can’t beat the classics, which is why today’s Fade of the Day throws a spotlight on a pair of Levi’s 501 STF’s, worn by Glen Grant from the United Kingdom.

Glen never stops moving, and he achieved his fades by cycling, motorbiking, hiking and traveling. He wears trousers at work, so this pair was worn on off days and nights during the last three years. A crotch blow out came after two years, but it was quickly repaired by the Denim Doctor. And in terms of the customization on the outside, some nice whispy honeycombs and whiskers have set in.

There’s still a great deal left in terms of fade potential, but the fades that have come about already are noteworthy.
