Fade Friday – The Worker Shield SH 011 X (2 Years, 5 Washes)


Image source: altwins

Holy moly – this is a serious pair of The Worker Shield SH 011 X  we have here. With ultra-high contrast fades, we had no option but to make these jeans our Fade Friday, the best of the week!

This pair comes to us from Ferdinand Andrew, who hails from one of the best fading location in the world: Indonesia. Aside from knowing his location, there isn’t much else we know about these. What the eye test tells us, is that while these may not have the craziest amount of creasing you’ll ever see (although plenty), what they do have is an insane amount of contrast in all faded areas. These spots look like they have lost nearly all their indigo, if not all, while some neighboring areas look like they could be from a brand-new pair. That’s something you don’t see every day.
