Fade of the Day – Naked & Famous Made in Japan 1 (16 Months, 0 Washes)

The best part of waking up is a new Fade of the Day on your plate. Today’s is a pair of Naked and Famous Made In Japan 1’s that come to us from Basil Javier in Winnipeg, Canada. Basil wore these 6 days a week for the first 14 months, working in a warehouse until a crotch blow out led to their indefinite hiatus.

Luckily, after getting them dry-cleaned and having them patched up, they are being worn regularly again.  The whiskering and honeycombing have become nice and clear, as has the outline of Basil’s wallet. With the crotch now reinforced and the jeans back in rotation, these Made in Japans are destined for great fades.
