Fade Friday – Samurai Jeans S5000VX (19 Months, Unknown Washes)

The fade level of these jeans…it’s over 5,000!

Dragonball jokes aside, it’s seriously impressive to see fades like these on a Samurai 5000VX, the widest of the Japanese brand’s cuts. But Singapore’s heat and humidity have lent a helping hand to Ahmad Ibrahim’s fading efforts over the last  year and a half, which is why they’re this week’s Fade Friday.

Heavyweight 21 oz. denim in the tropics has caused pretty much all of the indigo from the knees to the pockets to pack up and get the hell off of these jeans. Aside from the eye-popping whiskers and honeycombs, there’s also an impressive level of pucker fades on the hems without much serious roping.

You can follow Ibrahim’s fades on Instagram.
