The denim jackets are for the patient and resilient denimhead, often taking much longer than jeans to break in and get that desired atari (fades in Japanese, bro!).
Ryo, Manager at OD, has been rocking his jacket for a good six months up until a few weeks ago (retired for the summer of course!).
There may not be intense contrast fades yet, but the overall color and aji (literally translates as flavor in Japanese, but used similar to patina in English) is evident as ever on the edges especially.
That Slub brings out some crazy patina.
Damn excited to see how this piece progresses (pressure is on if you're ready for this, Ryo!).
