Fade of the Day – Imperial Duke (4 Years, 4 Washes, 1 Soak)
These jeans come to us from Allen Yue of San Francisco who says it was nothing special to achieve these fades, just 4 years of constant wear. During that time he washed them a scant 6 times or so, which no doubt precipitated the numerous crotch repairs Allen says they required. Still, they look perfectly serviceable and faded down to masterpiece status.
