Fade of the Day – Naked & Famous Elephant 5 (21 Months, 2 Washes)
It’s safe to say a that a large contingent of the regular readers of Fade of the Day get most excited when the heavier-weight denim graces this page. And today, we give the people what they want with these 20 oz. Naked & Famous Elephant 5’s, sent in by Bangkok’s own “NattaponXX”.
Nearing the two-year mark, this pair is looking not only excellent, but older than it’s true age. All areas of the jean have fades. We think we even see some nice stains at the thigh and rear seat as well.https://www.heddels.com/dictionary/honey-combs/
Aside from how thorough this pair has been worn down and broken in, our next favorite thing about this jean is the amount of indigo loss at the back of the pant, even as it retains some super high contrast honeycombs.
