Fade of the Day – Imogene + Willie Willie and Leather & Thread Theca Card Case (17 Months)

It’s rare that you get two fades on two different materials in one Fade of the Day. Dean Hindenlang of Columbus, Ohio sent in his Imogene + Willie Willie’s denim as well as his Leather & Thread Theca Card Case, both of which have were worn together for the last year and a half, and have faded in perfect harmony.

Dean’s Leather & Thread leather card case has a unique envelope shape with hard edges that has been sitting in his Imogene + Willie pockets daily for over a year, creating stark fades on the exterior of the pocket. The letter shape has faded down to pops of white and light blue on the jeans, while the pocket has clearly taken the sandy tones of the veg-tan leather and darkened it several shades where friction is the heaviest. The only downside to this unique pairing? Having to be wary of pickpockets who now no longer have to guess where your money is.
