Fade Friday – Eternal 883 (1.5 Years, 9 Washes)
This week’s Fade Friday comes to us courtesy of Sean Slater, our friend and Managing Editor here at Rawr Denim. Though he intended for this to just be featured in our forum, it was just too good to pass up and not to be shared in the limelight!
» Note: Do you have a denim fade that you’d like to share with our community? Post in our “Fades & Progressions” thread!
Purchased at Americaya in Ueno, Tokyo back in 2010, Sean has washed these Eternal 883 One-Wash every couple months (thus about 9 washes) and worn them for a total of about 1.5 years.
As you can see below, Eternal – the Japanese label with superior material, sewing, and processing – is renowned for their quality fades, particularly vertical falling.
