Fade of the Day – Jean Shop NYC Long Skinny Raw Denim (6 Years, Unknown Washes & Soaks)
Fans of skinny jeans: rejoice, because we’ve got you covered with today’s Fade of the Day! This pair of Jean Shop NYC Long Skinny jeans come to us from Samuel Chua of Canada who’s worn them for a cool 6 years too.
Samuel says he didn’t do anything out of the ordinary in these jeans, just regular wear. Given that they’ve been worn for 6 years and are not overtly faded, we’re going to guess they were in rotation with other jeans. Still, they did suffer a crotch blow out that Samuel repaired, and then another that has yet to be repaired. As such, Samuel says they’re temporarily retired.
Still, these jeans look good, and not quite that skinny! Absent are the hipster honeycombs, and instead we have an ocean of electric blue fades, from the whiskers down to the knees and even the seat. Even the leather patch has a smoky-nice patina.
