Fade of the Day – Mod9 Orange Route 17 (14 Months, Unknown Washes, 1 Soak)

Yongkwon Kim’s Mod9 Orange Route 17 jeans are today’s Fade of the Day. Any questions? Good.

For a little over one year, Yongkwon has worn these jeans to the office and they have aged respectably. After all of this consistent wear, one soak, and many washes,  although there are no strong creases, the jeans are straight glowing.

There are definitely a few areas of fading interest that we can stamp our rivets into. The lap and seat show some strong wear with the calf fading at a close second. Oh and by the way, the fades are laying promising ground work for future creases and we cannot wait to see them.
