Sometimes one photo says it all. Luckily today’s Fade of the Day is one of those cases because Rudiansyah from Indonesia only passed us one picture of his Naked & Famous Elephant 4s. Being 22 oz., these weigh almost as much as an actual baby elephant when wet, too.
He wore these jeans for just under three years with plenty of washes and soaks and is seeing his cash cow, no elephant, pay off. The honeycombs are big and dramatic. The whiskers nearing the front pockets have completely relieved the indigo of its duty. One subtle and rarely talked about fading zone is the the button fly. Truly the unsung hero of fades, we are seeing some strong definition from the buttons which will make zipper fly enthusiasts rethink their whole lives .
Just like an elephant that never forgets, these jeans will never forget the fades that have been etched into the fabric, creating life-long designs.
