I know I have mentioned the fabled art of denim speed running in the past but Hieu Tran of Vietnam may have just emerged as the grandmaster with his Sage 6th Anniversary Everest jeans for today’s Fade of the Day.
After only wearing his jeans for four and and a half months,one wash and one soak, Hieu has managed to achieve some deeply ingrained fades.
At this point, you might be wondering “What’s the big deal? They just look like regular fades.” Well! The big deal is, these innocent looking-jeans are 25 oz. monsters worn in Vietnam. Hieu wears these jeans everyday during 14-hour shifts at a street coffee shop under hot, humid conditions. No pain, no gain.
