Fade of the Day – Unbranded UB122 (13 Months, 1 Wash, 3 Soaks)

For those wondering what day job destroys jeans fastest, we think we’ve found our answer. Toronto’s J. Browler is a tile setter by trade and by the look of his submitted photos, he’s also a professional jean thrasher. So much so that he and his pair are our Fade Of The Day.

His Unbranded UB122’s have been worn only to work, but by the look of them they’ve been worn to work, the gym, and through a carwash without the car. Maybe thrown in a trash compacter too for good measure.

First thing’s first, the crotch looks like it’s been rebuilt more often than an over-raced Z28 Camaro IROC. Between the damage and fades to the knees and the never ending honeycombs around back, it look like he spends more time working on his knees than on his feet (ouch). Nearly every square inch of the rest is thrashed, trashed, and mashed. And you know what, they’re just perfect.
