Fade Friday – Iron Heart IH-633S-14 (4.5 Years, 4 Washes, 2 Soaks)

4.5 years into his Iron Heart IH-633S-14 jeans and Matt in Boise, ID has plenty of reasons to be proud of ’em. Serving as his daily drivers, these have been Matt’s go-tos for anything and everything from home vehicle maintenance and house projects to travel and working in production.

Over the years and through the gauntlet, these have come out smelling like an indigo-dyed, well faded, jean-shaped rose! Achieving that quintessential ‘not a care in the world’ vintage look with its washed-out, bright ‘n’ cheery appearance, these jeans are straight-up inspiring if you’re into authentic-looking fades. I was wearing sweats and saw these pics and was literally moved to put on some jeans.

They have gone under the knife 5 times so far which not only adds some unique flair but also accentuates the fades, most notable that nasty left knee and the gnarly back right pocket. And like a true wear warrior, the repairs have become Matt’s favorite part of these bad boys.
