The Strike Gold 1109 2 Years In Use

This is a pair of The Strike Gold 1109 which is well worn by our lady staff ---- Cindy. 

In the first 6 months , she wears them as 6 days per week and wash them every 3 ~ 4 weeks then after 6 months , she wears them 2 days per week and get them washed every 2 weeks ~


Cindy always try to keep her denims as clean as possible so that is the only reason she washed her denims very frequently . However, her SG 1109 still own her nice contrast after 2 years in use( so you could imagine how many different shades of indigo on the surface in raw condition ^^)








Anyway, she also love her HTC "Butterfly" belt (2 years in use) to match her SG 1109 so she asked me to take a photo of it and share with you guys~


She always place her IPhone 5 in front left pocket so there becomes a IPhone fading mark and also we do really like the "cat's whiskers" fades in front~



The belt loops are all roped so  after a while in use , you may see some nice fades will come up in the middle of them~


The rivets are made of copper and they turns to be some dark greenish colors



The construction is quite nice, after 2 years in use, the denims only get worn out a little bit in crotch area


She always knee down to help our customers to lace up the boots when she works in store so some nice fades become on knee part as well ( The more you works on them, the more beautiful fades will result for you!)




After 2 years in use, the deerskin leather patch turns to be some golden brown colors



some little worn-outs in the edges of back pockets due to the hidden back rivets ^^



The honeycomb fades are always attractive for denim lovers , what do you think about these?




Compare to the brand new ones, they do look like some beautiful "Familiar  Strangers" right? That is why we keen for Japanese raw denims, you never know the exact final result but they will become more beautiful than you expected with wears...
