Fade Friday – SExIH22-301s – (9 Years, 7 Washes, 1 Soak)

Meet, or rather re-acquaint yourself, with Killian from Germany and his Iron Heart SExIH22-301s jeans.

Worn for a little over 9 years with a mere 7 washes and 1 soak along the way, we’ve already seen Killian’s jeans once before but this check-in is as historic as it gets in the world if fading your obscure pants and showing them off online. That’s because his jeans are in their true final form, having reached the elusive  ‘1000-day milestone’.

Living the life of multiple jeans, they’ve been a part of it all from traveling, working, live concerts and have the wear to prove it.  Clearly at peace, nearly in pieces, and leaving no indigo left on the table, these jeans are legendary and will surely go down in the raw denim history books.

The whiskers have come and gone, a rare boom town ghost town effect only found on the hardest worn jeans out there. The root-like knee lines are still holding on for dear life and like the honeycombs ’round back, they wouldn’t let go even if they were sand blasted. Kept going by countless visits to the local tailor, these second skins are as self-actualized as a pair of jeans can get and we are honored to pay our respects.
