Fade of the Day – Iron Heart 633S-II (1.5 Years, 6 Washes, 1 Soak)
Starting with a stark, near-black tone of indigo—thanks to both an indigo warp and weft—enough has faded away to the point where the pair appears like the standard blue jean we are all accustomed to. And closer examination reveals some honeycombs starting to set in at the back knees, which should only gain contrast with time.
Still, the whiskers at the lap are looking very good, and have advanced well in lieu of the jean’s super-saturated starting point. Some sweet distressing is found, among other places, near the bottom cuff, at the watch pocket and at the seat, where you can see Jimmy’s handiwork with the repair job.
