Angga Cahyadiputra in Indonesia is raising the bar with this week’s Fade Friday, even for Indonesian denim heads. Angga’s canvas of choice is Sage’s Everest Special 6th Anniversary Unsanforized jeans which clock in at an astounding 25oz.
If you thought wearing jeans in a hot, humid, muggy climate was hard enough, these jeans are like wearing 2 pairs at once.
The real kicker with this pair is that they were only worn for 11 months in a world where most jeans don’t look half as good after 11 years! Now you may be asking what the secret is but to be honest there isn’t one, well other than an ideal fading climate. No, Angga has done things the old timey way—simply wearing his jeans day in and day out, every single day—for 8 hours at a time in case you were wondering.
Warning, results will vary if jeans are only worn for 7 hours and 59 minutes.
The fades themselves are almost like caricatures of fade, in the best possible way—thick, bold, and embellished. Its definitely quality over quantity when it comes to these jeans, I mean, if there is a fade line, you bet it is very pronounced. The effect is a perfectly unified overall fade.
Barely helped along by one initial soak and one sea wash, this jeans are the testament of what a strong will and sweaty legs can achieve.
