Fade of the Day – Naked & Famous Super Skinny Guy Indigo Selvedge (14 Months, Unknown Washes, 2 Soaks)

Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s own Danny Martin has brought us a pair of Naked & Famous to quench our Fade of the Day thirst.

Danny has worn these jeans nearly every day for a year while working as a barista trainer, cycling, gardner, and working on his truck. Like workers of yesteryear, Danny does everything in these jeans. But hold up, these ain’t no wide, straight-cut jeans! Danny is balling up in slim, tapered jeans, showing that they are both a reminder of the past and a modern-day inspiration.

Employing a care regimen of two hand soaks and NO washes – thats right, zilch, nada, zero – these jeans have retained a lot of their indigo, allowing them to really come into their own. Being fairly light to begin with, these jeans have gotten even lighter, and more importantly, brighter. The whiskers are long but have soaked into the surrounding area. Their lines aren’t sharp but blurred in the best way. The back of the knees have managed to stay one of the darkest parts of the jeans and yet the honeycombs are subtle. The seat and knees show us the fading potential of this pair, revealing satisfyingly light blue and white areas. The result of all of these components is a contemporary vintage pair of jeans with lots of life and fading power left. Just watch out for the encroaching crotch blow out!
