Fade Friday – Iron Heart x Self Edge SExIH22-301s (9 Years, 7 Washes, 1 Soak)

We love getting an update on a pair of faded jeans we’ve featured before, and if the progress is worth it, we’ll show them to the world once more. By the looks of these images, though, this will be the last time we feature this pair of Iron Heart x Self Edge SExIH22-301s raw denim jeans, coming to us from Killian over in Germany.

When Killian submitted these jeans to us back in the summer of 2019, they were already stuffed with fades. Now, the indigo dye is barely clinging on and the fades are at that end-tier, “let’s frame these jawns” phase that most denim heads dream of when they invest in some serious raw denim.

Grain and texture galore, honeycombs, rips, holes, and some seriously agricultural repair jobs, it looks like Killian’s Iron Hearts need to be retired soon, but that won’t stop them from entering the hall of fades as some of the most battered jeans we’ve seen.
