Skull Jeans, a repro denim label created by Japanese clothing and accessories brand FabFour, has maintained a relatively low profile over the last couple of years. Despite being hard to find, Skull Jeans’ selective line up (ranging from simple jeans to leather accented chambray shirts) is impressive. One of my favorite aspects of their collection is the 14.5 oz reversible denim jacket, a piece I would recommend taking a look at.
This week’s Fade Friday features a pair of 14.5 oz Skull Jeans 5010xx made out of a 6×6 Pima Cotton Blend (referring to the thickness of the warp vs. weft threads and yarns, 6×6 being the second lightest weave Skull Jeans use.) Belonging to style blogger and founder of thirdlooks.com, Rocky Li, this pair of jeans have “been put through a lot,” as the photos suggest.
Rocky has washed these jeans around half a dozen times over 4 years, however he purchased this pair second hand (albeit in a “near-raw condition”) and so it’s impossible to know how many times these have been put through the wash.
It’s interesting to point out that judging by the Levi’s styled red tab on the vertical seam of the rear pocket. From that we can tell that unless this pair of jeans was purchased in Asia, they will have been made pre 2007, making them six years old!
