Fade of the Day – Pure Blue Japan XX-011 (15 Months, 2 Washes, 4 Soaks)

OK, so today’s Fade of the Day doesn’t include a full frontal, but with whiskers like these on this pair of Pure Blue Japan XX-011 we’ll let it pass.

This pair comes to us from Heddels reader Patrick Heelan in Spain, who says he cycled 12 kilometers to college daily in these jeans. On the weekends he worked at a beach bar serving drinks and tables, also in these jeans.

In just 15 months all that has resulted in the kinds of fades others might achieves in 2-3 years. We’re especially enamored with the whiskers.
