Fade of the Day – Edwin ED-55 Nihon Menpu Rainbow Selvedge (2 Years, 3 Months)

We can hear it already: now Heddels is featuring yoga fades? Yeah, today we are, sort of. After all, these Edwin ED-55 Nihon Menpu Rainbow Selvedge are looking good, and it’s just different.

This pair comes to us from Heddels reader MacKenzie Smith of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada who says he’s worn them for 2 years and 2 months with no washes or soaks. That explains that crotch blowout! MacKenzie says he’s repaired the crotch, back pocket, and had them hemmed by Ben Viapiana. MacKenzie doesn’t mind though; he says he wears his denim year-round until it falls into a state of disrepair before rotating into a new one while the battered one undergoes repairs.
