This week’s Fade Friday comes to us all the way from Finland, where our friend and reader Niko Rönnberg has been stridin’ around in these Rogue Territory Striders for the last two and a half years. They tick the boxes too – we got all the honeycombs, whiskers, roping and pocket fades you could ask for.
Having donned these jeans almost every day, Niko feels they’ve gotten better with each wear (and wash, though he can’t remember exactly how many they’ve had). The result is a whole lot of blue tones, whiskers, wrinkles and roping, as well as heavy honeycomb action on the back and a nice patinated leather patch, which adds so much character to aged denim.
These Striders only recently had their first repairs – some darning to the hems and crotch that’s either a decent DIY or the handiwork of a pro, but either way, it’s ensured that this pair has plenty of years left in them!
