Today’s Fade Of The Day comes from Eugene Khomich of Russia, and it’s not only a fade, but a patina too. Let’s dive in and see what 3.5 years of wear and tear had done to his wallet.
With nearly four years of daily use you’d assume any natural veg-tanned leather would darken considerably and Eugene’s Red Hills Long Trucker wallet is no exception. Mainly spurred by the indigo transfer from a couple of pairs of Iron Hearts, as well as a Red Wing leather conditioner, the wallet has taken on a deep, dark brown, so dark it’s nearly black in some stretches.
Turning towards the interior, some hints of the leather’s original state remain, but even that area has darkened up a good amount.
