Fade of the Day – Levi’s 501 STF and J. Crew Matchstick Rigid (7 Years, Unknown Washes)

We’ve got a first for you in today’s installment of Fade Of The Day. Actually, it should be called Fades of the Day this time around, as we’ve got our first couples’ fades to share.

While doing laundry recently, Andy and Cindy Freeburg took a look at their Levi’s 501 STF’s and J. Crew Matchstick Rigid’s and realized that they’ve faded nicely over the last seven years. And while they admit they aren’t orthodox denim heads per se, they’ve enjoyed the process and sent in some photos to share.

Mainly worn on the weekend, doing yard work, skateboarding, and walking their dog Hank, their jeans have picked up impressions of those times spent along the way. After all, the couple that fades together stays together.

You can follow the Freeburgs & Hank on Instagram.
