Fade of the Day – Brave Star 21.5 oz Slim Straight (13 Months, 0 Washes, 0 Soaks)

For those about to fade, we salute you. Today’s Fade of the Day features Couer d’Alene, Idaho’s own Chad Von Lind and his pair of 21.5oz. Brave Star jeans. What are lightweight jeans anyway?

For just over a year Chad has rocked his heavyweight Brave Stars on the daily and uh news flash, they have never touched water. In case you were wondering what happens when a year’s worth of wear meets zero washes or soaks, I’ll let you in on a little secret: think bright. Like hi-vis bright. The honeycombs on this pair are so high contrast, they seem to be bursting off the jeans. Although the real highlight on this pair, figuratively and literally, are the knees. They are straight up snow white against the washed out lower thighs and indigo-laden shins. Not only the whitest I’ve ever seen but just about the whitest possible. End of story.

You can follow Chad on Instagram.
