Fade Friday – Samurai x Denimio S710XX16OZ-DMO (3.5 years, Unkown Washes & Soaks)

Those branch-like whiskers! Those moonlit wave-esque honeycombs! It can be none other than serial fader Ferdinand Andrew, from Indonesia.

As you could probably tell from the opening scene of denim drama, we recognize these jeans because this Fade Friday is an update of what was an already heavily faded pair back in May of last year, but Ferdinand had to keep things going and flex his fades once again. Flaunting aside, Ferdinand’s epic Samurai x Denimio S710XX show us what happens when you continue seasoning an amazing pair of jeans.

I remember calling these the white whale of fades because of their intense, evenly distributed creases and unreal contrast. Do I have to eat my words if the white whale just got whiter? Just go with it. One year later and these jeans now look maxed out and ready for a fade exhibition. The thighs have worn down to a bleach white ton, and the creases all over have that lightning effect that will turn any denim head. Ferdinand has also got some incredible symmetry going on with this wear pattern, something that makes these Sams even more mesmerizing.
