For Northern European folks, trying to achieve any form of noticeable sun fade is quite the task as our golden friend in the sky makes fairly fleeting appearances throughout the year, and sadly, never really outstays its welcome. Now, I know what you’re all thinking, “wouldn’t it be great if someone did the work for us? Without the end product looking more like acid wash?” Shockoe Atelier has your back with the introduction of its new “Sun Faded” Shirt.
Based on a vintage find, this button-down beauty is made in the USA but cut from an 8 oz. denim milled by Kaihara Mills in Japan which has a rich, slubby texture to it. The curved hem means it will sit at that sweet spot over your chosen legwear, and the addition of a classic singular chest pocket just brings it home.
Just as easily worn on its own or layered over a crisp white tee, this shirt is a Shockoe-shoo-in if you’re looking for a bit of pre-faded denim goodness in your wardrobe.
