Fade Friday – Red Cloud Overall MFG Co. Lot. r424SP (1 Year, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)

25oz. raw denim. Putting them on must be hard enough. Tolerating them for a day must be that much harder. Imagine wearing them solidly for over a year! That’s what Upcap from Thailand has done with his Red Cloud Overall MFG Co. jeans, earning him a spot in the Fade Friday rankings!

Upcap has worn these monster jeans everyday for as long as possible everyday throughout their 13 month tenure. However, he also mentions a valuable but often forgotten element of the fading equation:  fun. Upcap stresses that he wore these jeans not (only) for the fades, but for the enjoyment:  putting them on and breaking them in little by little. And break them in he did!

Thanks to a mere one wash and one soak and a whole load of wear, Upcap has achieved some extra crispy fades. Deep and defined creases and form a shredded wear pattern that brings the extra-heavyweight denim to life. The whiskers shine bright as they span from the crotch all the way down to the knees. The honeycombs? We’ll let the pictures do the talking.

And just when you thought these fades could be a fluke, Upcap slaps you in the face by modeling an equally-epic pair of faded Samurais whilst exhibiting his Red Clouds. I have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll see of him.
