Fade of the Day – Unknown Type 3 Denim Jacket (5 Years, Unknown Washes, 1 Soak)

It’s time again for Fade of the Day and today we have a mystery jacket for you. That’s right, we don’t know what brand this Type 3 denim jacket is, but we do know it was worn hard for the past 5 years.

Tao Thomsen of Denmark sent us in pics of this jacket which he says was probably 10 years old when he bartered with his cousin for it using a merino cardigan. Over the next 5 years he wore it for yard work, playing with kids, and general daily life.

Wearing it on his daily commutes, it developed a hole from his messenger bag, which necessitated some repairs. In addition, he’s made several other repairs, including a sashiko-style one. What’s left is one very worn, vintage-style jacket.
