Fade of the Day – Iron Heart 633S-II (25 Months, 8 Washes, 2 Soaks)
Top-drawer Iron Heart fades have been coming through our inbox thick and fast lately, and we’re not complaining! Especially when we get submissions like this pair of 633S-II’s, from Dane Morgan in Utah. This isn’t the first time this 21 oz. collab jean between Iron Heart and Self Edge has appeared on our daily fade features, and this particular pair pushed all our buttons for today’s edition of Fade of the Day.
Dane has been wearing these double-indigo beauties for just over two years, and he didn’t reveal too much about his fade recipe, except that he re-starched his jeans after a few washes to keep his jeans crispy and ripe for the fading. Needless to say, this has helped set some stark creases all over the jean,from the defined whiskers which run down the inner thigh to the stacked-up honeycombs behind the knees. The lap and seat areas have lost a lot of indigo, too, revealing chalky white tones as they fade.
However, with great fades, and heavyweight denim, comes great crotch blow out, and Dane has had to commandeer his wife’s sewing machine on numerous occasions to patch up signs of damage early on. So here’s to hoping that he can tame these beasts until they’re ready to be unleashed again for Fade Friday.
