When it comes to craftsmanship and fades, Iron Heart rarely disappoints, and this week’s Fade Friday is no exception. Riandzaki Hafiz of Indonesia sent us this pair of Iron Heart 666 SII 18 oz.’s that are just shy of a year and half of wear. The heavy fades in such a short period are a testament to Iron Heart’s fade reputation.
Riandzaki has given these no special treatment outside of a soak in the sea and hasn’t needed to repair them yet. This indigo warp, indigo weft fabric is famously tough to fade and it’s honestly impressive just how much white is visible on the thighs and seat of the jeans. With double the indigo, Mr. Hafiz is doing easily twice the work. After all, there’s no white weft to be exposed in a pair of jeans like this, you have to work the rope-dyed indigo off each and every thread, working your way to the white core. It’s jeans like this that make you want to step your game up.
