If the photos from this week’s Fade Friday look a little familiar, relax, you haven’t gone denim crazy. They’re coming from Heddels Forum user Zin (Instagram user, @nizzel55x), whose IH-666s were featured last month. But at the same time as he was fading his Iron Hearts, he was also putting in work on a Nudie raw denim shirt.
Normally shirt fades are much harder to come by; there aren’t as many stress points, they tend to be worn less frequently, and they usually get washed more often. Not so for Zin–he wore his shirt for 162 days, with only one soak and one wash. The results are some inspirational elbow combs that outshine what you’d find on most jeans, while the shirt stayed relatively dark across the body.
There’s still a lot of life left in this shirt–and probably a good bit of scent as well–so keep up with the thread for even more updates from Zin’s neck of the woods.
