The man, the myth, and the Heddels fade legend Alpharik Kurniawan from Indonesia is back for another Fade of the Day with his new conquest, a pair of Oni 676ZR 20 oz.’s that have been worn for seven months. In a short period, the once-dark raw denim has turned several shades lighter, faded a great deal, and been dirtied up.
Alpharik has been wearing these jeans every day, 12 hours a day, for seven months and has only washed them once. That wash didn’t do much to clean up the dirt, but it popped the burgeoning fades that were already peeking through. The legendarily high humidity of Indonesia clearly kicked up the fades a notch, especially in the knees with the broad and tight honeycombs, as well as the lap where the whiskers stretch pocket to pocket. As a cool bonus, some tight stacks are growing on the cuffs.
