Fade of the Day – Uniqlo Slim Fit Selvedge (20 Months, 5 Washes)
Here’s another Fade of the Day to show that you don’t need to splash the cash in order to achieve sick fades. Once again we have a solid example from Uniqlo (sans hipster honeycombs this time!) which was sent in by Heddels reader Arnaud Broquard.
Arnaud bought these in France 20 months ago and has been wearing them pretty solidly until now – he says he can be found chilling at home in them, hanging out with friends, or studying hard for his engineering degree. Following a total of five washes, this pair has some really nice high-contrast tones. Just look at those pocket profiles and whiskers on the front, not to mention the indigo loss on the seat.
All that wear caused a crotch blow out a few weeks ago, but we’re glad to hear that thanks to our hand-sewing advice, Arnaud was able to patch them up himself and reckons they now have another few years of life in them.
