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.
The Fullcount 1108 provides natural fading which I prefer.
Stitches on the left back pocket is disappearing little by little..
Stitches on the right back pocket barely remain. Good atmosphere isn’t it?
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.
Fullcount provides exclusive Japanese denim of 100% Zimbabwe cotton. I prefer its natural fades.
After 1 wash+ a couple of months
Photos below were taken in 2008.
After 3-4 washes
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.
Fading has not yet completed but it now shows good looking.
Next post to be in a couple of months
Since the above conditions were as of 2015, I have more faded the Fullcount 1108 now in 2017. So I will update the latest fades next time.
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.
The jeans provide slim silhouette which goes well with a tailored jacket and leather shoes.
My favorite style
I basically worn the Somet Slim Jeans twice a week since 2008 up to 2014. I don’t remember the number of wash but it was not many times.
Let’s see how the jeans have been fading.

Quality, silhouette and fades of Somet are fantastic to me. This is why I purchased same jeans again. Thanks.
