Here is one of my favourite Levi’s 501XX 1966 model wearing to work. Hasn’t been washing since a year ago, so far he has no odour. Light weight denim with the tapered silhouette. Worn since 2009. 7 years 10 months old. Size 30/32. 9 washes. Hand-painted NASA “Spacewalk of Gemini”. Not forgetting my beloved trucker jacket from my late father.
I just can’t forget the photo everytime think about vintage denim jacket. So here is the Fullcount sick denim from Heddel’s article.
Fullcount & Co. 2737 Jacket (9 months, 1 soak, 1 wash)
Fading a pair of raw denim jeans to grail status often takes years of dedication, forgoing washes, and near daily wear. Fading a jacket usually takes even longer–it’s not worn as much, there’s not as much stress or friction. Not this jacket, nine months was all it took to birth a near perfect fade on this Fullcount & Co. 2737 Type I.
Number 4 on our list of Ways to Fade Your Raw Denim Faster is to move to Thailand. It was a joke, but if there’s nothing more important to you than earning Sick Fadez, then take this jacket as evidence that you need you should seriously consider moving to Thailand.
Wearer nong33 bought the jacket directly from Fullcount’s owner Mikiharu Tsujita at last year’s Pronto Denim Carnival in Bangkok and has since worn it 3-4 days a week with one wash at the six month mark. The unsanforized denim shrunk up to create a beautiful striated fade around the seams, just like the Type I’s of old, and the elbow combs speak for themselves.
You can see all of nong33’s evo on the Pronto Denim forum.
Slope climbing with my buddy. It’s fun as long as don’t trip into a pot hole! And I spotted a small snake actually 😦 OK the jeans…Whiskers and honeycombs are prominent now I guess because I’ve been holding back washing my buddy hahaha ///1 soak 1 wash///size 31///worn 5days/week
1 yr 1 mth///1 soak///1 wash///worn 5 days/week. As I promised last month here are the closeup details of this wonderful buddy. You can see sharp contrast fading “Atari” at those distress points created by my bag everyday. Train tracks are not very obvious comparing to tighter silhouette 883 was much earlier. Nevertheless honeycombs are beautiful than 883! It’s has been 6 months since last wash so slight odour now. Vinegar bath for buddy soon. Will update more next month. Photos by Canon EOS 600D.
