Fade Friday – Top 5 Fades Of 2012

Just as we did nearly one year ago, there is no better way to ring in the new year than by giving a nod to the year prior. Though it’s tough to pinpoint which set of denim fades trumped all others in 2011, we give you the Top 5 Fades Of 2011 (measured by number of page views and impressions).

Note: Have a pair of fades that’d you like us to feature in 2013? Just post them up in our forum under “Fades & Progressions”!

    I have no idea why my comment from the denim repair post is showing up here, but…

    Only two N&F? I am shocked.

    There were so many other, much better jeans featured on Fade Friday than these. I wouldn’t have selected any of these – Josh’s jeans deserve some points for good wear, even though I don’t like the denim itself very much. The others don’t even come close.

    The best five fades featured in 2012 (in no particular order) were:

    Samurai S0500xx (May 25) *to be fair, these jeans worn by RepeatToFade are from many years ago, not 2012.
    Eternal 811 (Sept 28)
    Pure Blue Japan XX-013 (August 31)
    Fullcount 1108C (June 1)
    Samurai Fire Element (August 24)

      I like the APC and N&F Blue in Green Weird Guys, but other than that I agree with you.

      And the Eternall 811’s DEFINITELY deserved to be on here. For me, that’s the definition of “Holy Grail”

    • Yup

      There’s something seriously wrong with rawr denim’s comment system. It’s combining the comments from 2-3 articles at a time recently.

      You are the most whiny bitch in the whole raw denim community. Jesus.
