Fade Friday – Eternal 811 (3 Years, Unknown Washes, 1 Soak)

Ian in Seoul, South Korea has worn his Eternal Jeans for what seems like…eternity! You thought you were gonna get that satisfaction, didn’t you?

Purchased back in 2018, Ian has squeezed roughly 3 years of wear out of these jeans, washing them once or twice a month all the way through. Though doing basically everything in his Eternals, Ian’s fondest memory is wearing them on vacation in Spain. So yeah, between Japan (where they were made), Korea, and Spain, these jeans are well traveled and have the wear to back it up!

Broadcasting excellent vintage character, these jeans are all about the grain, which can be seen from a mile away on the well-washed areas like the back of the thigh. The usual suspects are on full display including gill-like whiskers and honeycombs and knees on the verge of blow-out in the best possible way.

Our favorite detail is the fly in which all the buttonholes have broken open. And although he says that’s why he can’t wear these any longer, it might be worth the trouble getting them seen to, especially since Ian’s already done some hand repairs in the past.
