Eternal 888 denim diary: 3yr 6mth

P1450637P1450639

It has been a long time posting my beloved Eternal 888 fade diary. My buddy is already 3 year and 6 months old! What I would like to say is, the regular cut has a roomy movement for legs and create bigger honeycombs. Compared to my previous Eternal 883, it actually lasts longer than I’ve expected. Distressed areas are less likely to occur. Less fraying or ripping on knees. Maybe I’ve spent less time on sports. Hiroshige’s artwork is well faded. With 6 vinegar wash, and still looking deep in most parts, this is truly the hallmark of Eternal deep indigo!

I know most denimheads wanted quick fading but I prefer natural fade, I’ve learnt to care for denim. Be patient. Ok, wait for the next 6 months for the update.

Eternal 888. 3 years 6months. Worn 5 days/week. 1 soak 6 wash. 14.5oz Kurashiki denim.

ETERNAL 888 DENIM DIARY: stair climbing

My usual stair climb with my buddy. 3 steps per stride. My denim exercise to break my Eternal 888. Obvious contrast fading after the 3rd vinegar wash. The beautiful indigo is delicious. That’s how I would describe it hahaha

eternal 883 (10th wash)

Hello to my retired old beloved buddy Eternal 883. I couldn’t leave him sitting at home and mould. Somehow I placed him indoor and folded was a bad idea. The 10th vinegar wash was necessary. The 9th wash was on March 2015! This week I saw a great denim repair master in Osaka on Instagram. I was thinking bringing my buddy back again hahaha. OK for the record: Size 30/34///since 2011///1 soak///10 vinegar washes///14.5oz Kurashiki selvedge denim
