Fade of the Day – Imperial x Self Edge 023 (3.5 Years, 5 Washes, 1 Soak)

Fade of the Day is here to provide you with your daily dose of fades and in this edition, we’re exhibiting this pair of  Imperial x Self Edge 023 jeans from Matt Chan. Based in Canada, Matt has worn these Imperials for three-and-a-half years, earning some solid fades along the way.

The wear we’re seeing here haven’t come from any epic adventures. In fact, Matt tells us he spent most of his time in these jeans sitting down in a lecture hall! Nevertheless, they’ve aged beautifully, and the slubby denim has become richer in texture as the indigo dye has worn away. Apart from the shredded thighs, dye-loss is pretty even throughout – but the honeycombs and whiskers still stand strong – holding remnants of darker indigo tones between their creases.
