Fade of the Day – Wrangler 13MWZ (5 Years, Unknown Washes)

A big shout out goes to Kirk Ho in Taiwan:  he was kind enough to share his shredded Wrangler 13 MWZ with us, and in kind we thought we’d bestow our Fade Of The Day honor upon them.

If we’ve learned anything with this submission, it’s that if you regularly wear a pair of jeans for five years and get a little adventurous with your repairs, you may just wind up with something that looks like a pair of very expensive Visvim jeans. Kirk wore his trusty jeans so much that the thighs are 90% indigo-free, and the knees got so paper-thin that repairs were more than required.

Backed with colorful fabric and thread, the vibrant and unique results stand out nicely, but subtly so. The key is that it’s not overwhelming to the eye, so well done Kirk.
