Fade Friday – Momotaro Copper Label G017-MB (1 Year, 2 Washes, 1 Soak)

For this weeks Fade Friday, Jacky Goldberg in Los Angeles is single handedly proving that the West Coast knows how to fade jeans. In this case, it’s a pair of Momotaro Copper Label 14.7oz. denim. Jacky has worn his second skin over the course of three years and calculates that he’s put in about twelve months of solid wear. Thanks for taking that extra step Jacky, it shows you are really studying and appreciating your wear time. After two washes, one soak, and one crotch repair, these stunners are thriving.

The jeans have a dark tint to them which accents the darker fades as well as the brighter, heavily worn areas providing some sharp contrasts. What makes this pair so cool to look at though is how the areas of deep fading interact with the rest of the jeans. The honeycombs for example are strong in the center but fade away at the outskirts, transitioning into more washed out fading. The same phenomenon is present with in the whiskers too. So, although it sounds like a contradiction, the high contrast fades blends in nicely with the other areas on the jeans.
