Fade Friday – Nudie Lean Dean Dry Japan Selvedge (3 Years, 8 Washes, 1 Soak)

Guttentag from Andrei and his Nudie Jeans coming at us all the way from Germany. For the last 3 years, he has been engineering magical fades in a way only a true denim head could. It looks like German engineering translates over to fades as well.

Chipped away by his daily commute, chores around the house, and playing with his young son, Andrei leaves nothing to the imagination when it comes to these jeans. All the sweeping whiskers, gill-like honeycombs, and Don’t Look Up knee craters are on full display. And though all of these details are interesting on their own, this is definitely a ‘sum greater than its parts’ situation going on here. Nothing better than the full package! It doesn’t hurt that the moody blue backdrop has been perfectly seasoned thanks to 8 strategic washes over the years.

Clearly worn hard, it will be exciting to see what Andrei can squeeze out of these in years to come.
