Fade Friday – Boncoura XX 47 Jeans (1 Year, 5 Washes, 1 Soak)

Boncoura‘s first soiree into Heddels fades comes curtesy of Elmer Sentillanosa of The Philippines. Fresh out of the Indigo Invitational Fade Competition, Elmer has worn his XX 47 jeans for a true year and should be proud of all the indigo he’s squeezed out of them.

Elmer seems to be a sentimental person who has associated many memories from the last year with these jeans. Whether working in a local hospital, playing with his cats at home, or traveling to places like Taiwan, Malasyia, Turkey, and Japan—Elmer had these jeans on. Loves cats, works in a hospital, loves to travel…has a home? If Elmer is looking for a denim date, then this edition of Fade Friday can act as his dating profile.

After 5 washes, 1 soak, and 1 crotch repair by a hospital seamstress, these glorious fades are  the result. With strong creases in all the right places like the knees, lap, and back of the legs and a satisfying show of fabric evolution on the thighs and seat, these jeans have all the fades with the stories to boot.
