Fade of the Day – Iron Heart IH-777S-21 (7 Months, Unknown Washes)

Heavyweight, specifically 21 oz., denim is nothing to scoff at. Although it generally take longer to break in, the fades end up being nice and rich. For this reason, we have decided to highlight Jan from Germany and his Iron Heart 777s 21 oz. denim for today’s Fade of the Day.

Jan told us his fades are so pronounced in the knees, especially the right one, because of kneeling while sorting books at the library. The rest of the fades were earned by cycling to and from work and the university Jan attends.

Jan washes his jeans frequently, but generally only wears them during the cold months. These are fledgling fades, given the denim weight and limited wear, but they’re coming out are already looking great, especially the whiskering in the lap and the fades in the knees from feeding the bookworms.
