Fade Friday – Unbranded UB221 (1.5 Years, 2 Washes)
A Fade Friday entry that looks this good in just 1.5 years and 2 washes? Is such a thing even possible? Yes. We have pictures.
This week’s best fade is a pair of Unbranded UB221 jeans that come to us by way of Jacky Goldberg of Los Angeles. In fact, this is the second time he’s submitted these jeans to us; the first time was in 2016, after he had worn them for 6 months. Jacky only wears these jeans in winter, which adds up to 1.5 years of real wear time.
Whatever he’s been doing in LA’s mild winters, it’s worked, because these jeans have almost no indigo left. We’re pretty speechless as to how picture-perfect they are. Now all we can do is wonder what Jacky will do to his next pair.
