Fade of the Day – 3sixteen ST-100XK (3 Years, 4 Washes, 2 Soaks)

For today’s Fade of the Day, James Natividad from the Philippines has some 3sixteen ST-100XK jeans that are waving the white flag. No, they are the white flag!

James has worn these jeans regularly for the last three years, washing them four times and soaking them twice. They have gone under the knife for a crotch repair and bear the dates of washing on the inside of the front pockets.  The result of James’s labor of live is a completely faded and washed out piece of wearable art. There is not a single area untouched by the test of time and the persistence of constant wear. The best part about jeans that have achieved this intense level of fading is that they completely form to the wearer. These are truly James’s jeans.
