Fade Friday – Sugar Cane 2014 (Unknown Years, Unknown Washes)

If the week has taken its toll on you, fear not, because Fade Friday is here to help you transition to the weekend with some sweet Sugar Cane goodness. This submission may be shrouded in mystery, but one thing is very certain – they’re faded as hell.

This pair of Sugar Cane 2014 jeans were constructed from 12 oz. raw selvedge denim, milled with a blend of Texas and Zimbabwe cotton. While we have no information on the process behind these gnarly fades, it’s safe to say these jeans have seen a lot of regular wear and a lot of washes. The indigo dye has been depleted in some areas of the jean, making way for a dirty white cast that makes these Canes look as though they’ve been to hell and back. Ironically, the insane dye-loss highlights the remnants of indigo that remain, especially within the creases of the honeycombs and near the hems.

The icing on this heavily-faded cake is the dark, rugged patina of the leather waist patch, which has worn down so much that the Sugar Cane locomotive design has faded away completely.
