Fade of the Day – Naked & Famous Elephant 4 (2 Years, 4 Washes, 2 Soaks)
It’s time for Fade of the Day, and it looks as though Naked & Famous‘ Elephant denim has come charging through once again. This pair of Elephant 4 jeans are from Maxwell Jackson, who like his jeans, comes from the “land of air-conditioned sunshine.”
Maxwell has put these heavyweight 22 oz. monsters through two years of wear, earning himself some stellar fades along the way. This gargantuan fabric has, in tandem with the brand’s slimmest cut, produced some insane texture and chalky fades. Just check the close-ups! After waiting eight months to wash them, Maxwell has washed these N&F’s whenever necessary, which has helped to further the dye loss in the thighs and seat. In addition, Maxwell has earned some killer whiskering in the lap, subtle stacking towards the hems, and some solid honeycombs behind the knees.
