Fade Friday - Kapital TH (5 Years, 8 Washes)

Today’s Fade Friday feature comes by way of our friend and contributor Jonathan at The Bandanna-Almanac.

Unlike last Friday’s jeans, which display heavily contrasted fades, Jonathan’s pair of Kapital TH jeans have a more vintage-style fade characterized by pronounced atari fading and a more gentle colour gradient.

Of special note is the arcuate on the right-hand back pocket. Kapital’s jeans typically do not feature arcuates, but Jonathan stitched his own “Bandanna-Almanac Special” arcs that bear resemblance to his website’s logo.

    look in good shape for 5 yrs.. would be interesting to know how much actual wear time, tho..

      Probably 3.5 to 4 years of actual wear time. Realized it should read “8 soaks”.

    8 years??? this pair looks more like a year of wearing…

  • Suss

    First pair of Kapitals I haven’t detested

      Curious to hear what Kapital denim you detest?

  • http://twitter.com/BandannaAlmanac Jon Lukacek

    @jus schilling a lot of wear at least worn 3 times a week for 5 years. I use a lot of care when I wash and soak my denim, and try preserve as much color as possible.

      damn.. pretty impressive man..

      • http://twitter.com/BandannaAlmanac Jon Lukacek

        Thanks. Patience this time, paid off for the slow fade. Still thinking about what to do to the left back pocket. I’ve kept the repairs to this pair very subtle.

        • jus schilling

          yeah, i was gonna say.. i didnt even notice that there were any repairs done.. that was more suprising to me than how you actually kept color.. any washing tips youd like to share? maybe rawrdenim gives you a guest spot!

            I wrote a good one a few months back on my tumblr. I guess I’ll have to revisit the topic. Thanks for your interest.
