Fade Friday – Samurai Jeans S710XX (21 Months, 3 Washes)

For this week’s Fade Friday, we’re starting the weekend off right with a pair of some serious, heavy-duty fades. Ferdinand Andrew of Indonesia sent in these 16 oz. Samurai Jeans s710xx X Denimio that have been worn for nearly two years and have taken on a life of their own.

This pair has faded down considerably in areas of heavy wear showing the slubby texture of the denim throughout. That being said, there is whiskering almost everywhere, even in places you wouldn’t expect it. The honeycombs in the knees are electric and have stacked heavily upon one another, playing off considerable indigo loss in the calves and thighs. There are even some minor stacks in the ankles forming. Despite so much white popping through from wear, there is still indigo left to fade and with no need for repairs any time soon, there is plenty of life left in these bad boys.
