Fade of the Day – Levi’s 501 (10 Months, 8 Washes, 3 Soaks)

In today’s Fade of the Day, we can see how Fahan Al Farabi of Indonesia has speed-run his Levi’s 501 jeans. In under 11 months, he has achieved some major fades! How is this possible?

Pure dedication and living in a hot, humid climate doesn’t hurt. Fahan wears these jeans everyday when going to school and seeing friends. He even sleeps in these jeans, which…is kind of intense . There are no off days.

Fahan doesn’t shy away from washing his jeans either. He says that if you wear your jeans consistently, fading will come, even with washes and soaks. Trust your jeans. This philosophy has obviously worked for Fahan. The whiskers are deep, showing strong contrast. The thighs are more white than blue with stretch marks all the way from the thighs to the knees.  Even the shins have fade lines.
