Sick Fades, Bro

Yesterday was our much anticipated Fade February Finale in both our Toronto and Vancouver locations. For the first 24 days of February, we hyped up the Finale by posting denim facts on our blog and encouraging those with the sickest fades to enter into our Fade February contest. To help us judge the event, we had representatives from Nudie Jeans, Levi’s and Railcar. All of the pairs of jeans that entered the contest were beautiful, but we had to settle on three winners.

Denim scientists from Naked & Famous have since beat the 22 oz mark by manufacturing jeans that come in 24, 26, and now a 32 oz denim. The 32 oz Naked & Famous Weird Guys can stand up on their own. Go hard, or go home!

Whiskers, They Aren’t Just for Cats

Hip/Waist Whiskering                       Fade February Fact #16: A lot of jeans out there have already been broken in for the denim consumer, and one of the most common effects is whiskering. Whiskering fades develop from denim rubbing against itself when the wearer is sitting, or bending at the hips and waist, and have gotten their name due to the resemblance to whiskers on an animal.
