Fade of the Day – A.P.C. Petit New Standard (~5 Years, Unknown Washes & Soaks)

Mondays are great! You know why? Because they also happen to have a Fade of the Day, like this pair of A.P.C. Petit New Standards.

These jeans were submitted by Heddels reader Stephen Lucas of Jakarta, Indonesia. He says his wear on these was nothing crazy, just a little over 5 years of having them on his legs. In that time he’s given them many washes and no repairs. The left knee has torn, and Stephen’s wondering if he should repair that or not, but miraculously there’s been no crotch blow out. See? Good things do come to those who wash their jeans.

Speaking of washing, that’s also resulted in some incredible fades, especially those honeycombs.
