Fade of the Day – UES 400T (1 Year, Unknown Washes)
Today’s Fade of the Day features some solid fading action from UES. It’s not a brand that we see too often but deserves every bit of its cult reputation! This 400T model has been submitted by Ben Anders in Bournemouth, UK, who’s had them for about a year so far.
Ben confesses he’s a serious denim head who’s prone to falling sleep on the sofa in this pair following an evening surfing the web for more cool jeans. He reckons that only adds to the fades, which have been achieved through constant wear over the last 12 months and about four or five washes.
This pair ticks the boxes for whiskers, honeycombs and much desired vertical falling fades. Notice how the back pocket profile isn’t as crisp as you’d expect? Ben says he switched wallets about six months ago, resulting in a unique double profile. They’ve also seen their fair share of repairs, including an almost complete restitching of the back yoke and some darning of the pockets and buttonhole, though the crotch is still holding up pretty well so far!
