This past Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 marked our 3rd annual Fade February competition. The event was top-notch, and both stores were packed full of raw denim enthusiasts showing off their dedication to owning the best fades in Canada. This year, we also opened up the competition to faders all over the world with our online portion of the contest and were thrilled to see fades all the way from Los Angeles to Singapore, and Australia (to name a few).
