Antwerp, Belgium may seem like an unlikely place to start a denim brand, but that is exactly where Eat Dust denim calls home. Founded by friends, Keith and Rob, who share a passion Harley Davidson motorcycle and denim, Eat Dust has been producing quality, unwashed selvedge jeans for a few years now. Since their launch, they’ve managed to whittle their offerings down to three fits and truly focus on producing only the highest quality products.
Marking the first Fade Friday feature on Eat Dust, this week showcases a well-worn pair of the Belgian line’s Fit 67 that belongs to one of our readers, Olaf. After being worn for 21 months and washed just once in cold water, we see a nice set of deep, high-contrast fades.
Interestingly enough, though the jeans have been worn for almost 2 years, they seemingly still have a lot of life left in them and are sure to hold up well over many wears to come. Also, contrary to denim folklore that claims raw denim must be worn tight to achieve “proper” fades, these jeans have developed clean, clear contrast lines despite the relatively loose fit.
