Fade of the Day – 3sixteen ST-100XK (8 Months, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)
Today’s Fade of the Day comes to us from Heddels reader Nakarin Urailertprasert who calls Thailand, (a.k.a. the global fade capital) home. His 3sixteen ST-100XK, although only worn for 8 months, show tons of progression and character.
Nakarin laid it out plain and simple for us. He wears them six days a week for work, and they haven’t needed repairs. That’s all folks. Fades are simple. You just wear your jeans, integrate them into your life, and the rest will follow.
The dirtiness of the fades are notable because they contrast organically and authentically with the pops of white, the indigo, and the rips in knees, legs and seat. The honeycombs and the whiskering in the knees and thighs are nice and contrasted as well. The crotch looks like it has had the heaviest wear, and if he continues wearing his jeans the same way, that delicate area will require tender love and care soon.
