Fade of the Day – Naked & Famous Elephant 5 (13 Months)

Naked & Famous’ unorthodox approach might earn it some flak every now and then, but, as today’s Fade of the Day proves, its heavyweight Elephant line consistently delivers. Sent in by Heddels reader Kirill S in Montreal, these jeans are well on their way to faded perfection.

Kirill has been wearing this pair day in, day out for a solid 13 months without even a soak or a single wash to speak of. Weighing in at 20 oz., they’ve stayed pretty dark on the indigo front, but there are some great honeycombs, stacking and whiskering that’s going to result in cool high-contrast fades once they finally see some water.

We’re loving the profiles on the front and back pockets, too.
