We see a lot of submissions over at the Heddels Fade Friday desk, so you could say we know a thing or two about the wear of denim. So when I say it’s rare to see a pair of jeans that look like they survived being in a biker gang from the 50s-70s, take my word for it! But that’s just what we have here. Straight up looking like a pair of Hells Angels’ “originals” – look it up if you dare.
Julian in Chicago is back with us to show off another graffiti and daily wear-fueled pair of jeans, this time a pair of Unbranded UB101’s. And let me tell you these things are beat to shreds. And yet they still have many many glimmers of life left in them. From the hypnotic wade pool honeycombs and shins to the reinforced thighs and seat by way of amateur repair, we prefer perfectly broken-in to worn down. And with the dirty soiled hue that denim gets only after a handful of washes and soaks over a decade, these jeans aren’t just in a league of their own but probably a dirt index of their own too.
