I LOVE faded blue jean but I have not seen a new one to match the original ones, they are good but different now. The blue is darker and less faded. I say leave it that color that it has faded to, it is beautiful.
Mine is below and has not faded at all yet and is to me the prototypical FBJ shade and ME color. I hope when mine fades it does so as well as yours has.
Wow, the difference is staggering. I wouldn't even think they were the same finish. That is of course comparing your new FBJ to an old faded FBJ. Your top appears to be on the lighter side as well. How color accurate is your photo? Thanks for sharing!
