Fade Friday – Dyke Denim Michiko III 19 oz. (2.5 Years, 2 Washes, 1 Soak)

Egy over in Indonesia is bringing a new brand into the mix with these Michiko III 19 oz jeans by Dyke Denim, and we couldn’t be happier to check them out! Having worn them for 2.5 years with 2 washes and 1 soak sprinkled in along the way, you’d expect a lot of wear into these things, and you’d be right! Although clocking in at 19 oz., Egy has worn them in like they were some lightweight

And although the method might not be the most entertaining (just a disciplined schedule of wearing them every day for work), the results make up for it. The denim that new-to-us brand Dyke Denim has used clearly ages very well, with some amazing gradient action — most evident in the top block and honeycombs — while that sought-after yellowing in the thighs completes a perfectly broken-in look.

There are crease lines everywhere, here. Not in large numbers, but laid down thick, which really helps this pair stand out. Even the seat of the jeans has some faded lines streaking through them. Come on, now, Egy.
