Fade of the Day – Studio D’artisan x Denimio DM-002 (6 Months, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)

Denimio really know how to get people fading raw denim. Their collaborations usually entail a year-long fade-contest with some epic prizes up for grabs, and a corresponding hashtag to get people flaunting their fades. This pair of raw denim jeans come from a 2017 collaboration between the denim retailer and Studio D’artisan, courtesy of Justin DeLand from Connecticut.

Justin tells us these jeans see a lot of daily wear in his job at a theater as he works on the productions on and around the stage.  Clocking in at 194 wears at the time of submission, these Studio D’artisans are looking really promising, with some solid whiskering coming through in the lap and down the thighs, and some tight-knit honeycombs set in behind the knees. Justin has also worked in some nice pocket fades on the front and back -always a nice bonus. And now, all he has to do is chip away at that stubborn indigo dye to reach the next level of fade glory.

You can catch up with Justin on Instagram.
