This post is to report status and photos of Fullcount 1108 regarding how it has faded. Since 2015 I washed it 3-4 times.

At first let’s see overall pictures.

Stitches on the left back pocket is disappearing little by little..



Fullcount 1108 right pocket fading

Stitches on the right back pocket barely remain. Good atmosphere isn’t it?



Fullcount 1108 hem fading and damage

Damage appears at the hem but it is not serious at this moment.


Because of Zimbabwe cotton’s quality, comfort and soft, I mostly wear the Fullcount 1108 in hot and humid days.

There will be further report in due course as I would keep wearing it this year.

It has not been a main jeans for several years. Having said that, I kept wearing it at home because its soft fabric is comfortable for relaxed time. Then the jeans gradually got faded, like below. Those photos were taken in 2015.

Somet Slim Jeans Fades Comparison and its Fading History

SOMET is the Japanese Selvage Denim Jeans maker since 1999. There are several models such as straight type, slim type. I got a Slim Jeans in 2008 and another one again 2014.

I’m going to share comparison-photos between faded condition and raw condition. Please note that length of the two jeans are not same. The length of the raw jeans purchased in 2014 is longer than the faded one, therefore it is not appropriate to seek for information on how the jeans shrink after wash. However the both have same waist size.
