Fade Friday – Leon Denim LD001XX (2.5 Years, Unknown Washes)

The flyers and the milk carton ads were going nowhere so John in Manila reached out to Heddels as a last resort. The thing is, he’s lost something very, very dear to him. Something that many of you know and love: Indigo. Okay, yes, he technically still has his Leon 001xx jeans but there is simply no indigo left. So, whether it ran away or worse, was stolen, no need to worry John, we’re on the case.

But first, let’s get through some trivial details that won’t help in the investigation. John has had these jeans for 2 years and 7 months and has worn them as part of a weekly rotation throughout this period. At the end of each week, they get a wash and before you say that’s excessive, keep in mind that Manila’s climate is super hot and humid.

Although I’d love to talk about creases on the lap,  lines behind the knees, and all that good made-up stuff, but I can’t. The shelves are empty. We’re dealing with ghost town jeans.
