Fade of the Day – Imperial x Self Edge 023 (Spooky Mystery!)

Greetings fade fans and denim detectives! We have a special mystery for you today, our fade form somehow corrupted the information we received about this pair so we only have the pictures and the name of the pair to go on.

This is a pair of Self Edge x Imperial 023 collab jeans, which are no more than four and a half years old because I wrote the post that announced their release in June of 2014. This 16 oz. pair was originally released as a summer jean, but Imperial is based in Australia so I guess that made it a winter pair? Regardless, the one up above has some deep, high-contrast fades and neat leg twist with a couple sashiko repairs near the back hems and one near the inside of the right pocket, leading me to believe this wearer enjoyed some western boots and a large phone.

Is this wearer you? Let us know in the comments and apologies the Internet destroyed your info on its way from you to us!
