In a community where people fade their jeans for years and years, the under-1- year faders don’t always get the credit they deserve. However, anyone who can get strong fades in under one year is a denim champ in my book. Speaking of denim champs, Alex Chong from Malaysia has worn a pair of NBDN jeans for less than a year and has earned a Fade of the Day! Although only wearing these 16 oz. big boys for 8 months working as a barista, Alex has achieved some seriously commendable fades.
These things really have all the fixings: strong whiskers, intense knee fades, and a cornucopia of honeycombs. What sets these jeans apart from your average pair is that these fades are happening on top of some interesting fabric. Not only is it bright and crisp, giving off a defined overall look, the warp is crazy prominent giving off some pinstripe vibes. With such a unique look, we can’t wait to see how these jeans will age in the future.
