Fade of the Day – Levi’s 508 (6.5 Years, Unknown Washes)

Denim fades can be high contrast, low contrast, and everything in between. Why, just look at today’s Fade of the Day: this pair of Levi’s 508 has a look of its own, and one that its owner loves.

These jeans come to us from Hugo, of France, who says he bought them in 2012 as his first pair of raw, selvedge denim jeans. He held off on washing for the first couple of months, but eventually started washing them every 10 wears or so.

The result is a thoroughly vintage, ’70s look to them, down to the relatively slim cut, and the paper patch. Wear ’em like you like, we say.
