Serial fader Muhammad Rizky Sukmanam, from Jakarta, Indonesia is gracing us with his 10-month-old limited edition Samurai x Denimio jeans for this week’s Fade Friday. Worn every day in his college life, these Samurais have grown up so fast it’s almost making me emotional.
Clocking in at an incredibly un-light weight 25 oz., try to tell me you wouldn’t buy a pair of these, send them to Muhammad to fade in the denim incubator that is Jakarta, and get them back x amount of time later? Longer the time-worn, higher the premium. Muhammad, that idea is free. You’re welcome.
Usually, I don’t pull in Instagram handles into the body of articles but Muhammad’s is too accurate: @notyourordinaryfades. Really assertive whiskers and honeycombs that you’d expect on a heavyweight pair of unsanforized denim, and perfectly washed out thighs and seat that you’d think was from a 2+ year unlimited-wash beater pair.
And what makes this even sweeter for Muhammed is that he has been wearing his this pair as part of the premier Indigo Invitational—and with fades like this—he will certainly be a strong contender to take the crown. We’ll be covering the Invitational in next week’s edition of Fade Friday, so keep your eyes peeled.
