Fade of the Day – Big John Rare R008 (3 Years, 3 Washes)

Today’s Fade of the Day is big…Big John that is. Chad Choi of Korea sent in these Big Johns that have been worn for 3 years and washed once a year. They were worn daily while working in the Mode-Man denim shop in Seoul, and the quality of the fades is just as good as you’d expect from a hardcore denim-lover.

What was once a deep indigo has faded into a sea of greenish-blue fades. Pops of the bare natural cream denim are interspersed with marbled whiskers that stretch horizontally and in some places curve and turn vertical. There is some roping in interesting places, especially on the waist. So far, no repairs have been needed.
