Fade Friday – Samurai Jeans S710XX (~2.5 Years, 4 Washes, 1 Soak)
Like its warrior namesake, Samurai Jeans is tough and resilient. This week’s Fade Friday is a pair of Samurai S710XXs sent in by Aji Abdul Aziz of Bandung, Indonesia, that have been worn for nearly two and a half years and prove why the Osaka-based brand is so popular.
These Samurais didn’t come with much information, but the fades speak for themselves. The slubby texture of the denim is fully visible in areas of heavy wear, particularly in the thighs and seat. The honeycombing and whiskering contrast heavily with the remaining dark denim, of which there is still a great deal. The knees have taken some abuse, but otherwise, there doesn’t seem to be a need for repairs anytime soon.
