Yun in Hong Kong has been rocking Red Monkey jeans for at least 8 years per a deep dive into our Fade Archives. What?! Psh! Shut up, we were not creeping. Anyways, this time he is bringing a pair of Red Monkey ORJ 15.5 oz jeans to the table, gracefully worn for 3.5 years.
Subjecting them to 15 washes and an unknown number of soaks, our guy has gotten some monster fades out of these mid-weight jeans just from going about his Red Monkey business. There’s that classic denim evolution where the fabric just seems to come alive. This can be seen all over the jeans from the waistband to the hems. But then there are the eye-catching crease sculptures inhabiting the landscape like electric whiskers on the lap, underwater shimmer honeycombs, and a perfectly busted seat featuring an indigo moon watching over the worn-in landscape. Continuing the tradition, it doesn’t hurt that this Red Monkey loyalist has a brand new pair perched right next door to get an idea of the fade process.
