Fade Friday – Dior Homme MIJ 21cm (4 months, Washes Unknown)

Dior Homme Denim MIJ 21cm

After our post about Burberry Prorsum’s raw denim, I was inspired to feature a hotly discussed high-fashion brand’s raw denim: Dior Homme.

After hunting through a number of forums, I located one of the better documented pairs of Diors around. These highly popular jeans belong to SuperFuture member tragicbliss.

It might just be that I’m a sucker for good photography, but I melt a little bit when I see a pair of nicely photographed jeans. As for these ones, they look a little washed out due to a harsh camera flash, but that’s only minor. (Remember lighting is key for photography, especially for photos of denim!)

Note: Want to learn how to photograph your own pair of raws? Check out this article.

In case you were wondering about the “21cm” in the title, it refers to the leg opening/cuff, which Dior uses to classify their fits. For example, the 21cm is said to be a slim-straight cut, similar to the A.P.C. New Standard jeans, and the 19cm is slimmer like A.P.C.’s New Cure jeans. Hedi Slimane, the founder and the designer of Dior Homme from 2001 to 2007, designed the 19cm and 21cm cut.

Details:

  • Name: Dior Homme Denim Made in Japan (MIJ) 21cm
  • Weight: 13oz
  • Denim: 100% Cotton, Made In Japan.
  • Fit: Slim
  • Length of wear: ~4 months at the time of the photos
  • Number of washes: Unknown

Wallet, lip balm (?) and combs. Lots to see in the rear.

Lip balm in the back? I’m always intrigued by different brand pockets. Very low key.

Obligatory comb shot.

Apparently, the inseams are quite long, measuring in at 37″. 

Slim-Straight Fit.

Stay raw!

    Fade Fridays have been getting less and less interesting ;-;

      Thanks for the feedback though a shame to hear! Any suggestions for what you’d like to see?

         More heavyweight fades, more uniquely dyed stuff

          You’d probably find the Heavyweight Denim Competition from the superfuture community interesting.

          I feel like that’s what superfuture is for – Rawr seems to be designed to be a blog about all things denim and to give a broad brushstroke over the entire world of denim from culture to science. As such not every fade is, or should be, the same heavy-weight honeycomb hi-res. There are naturally going to be jackets, bags, and other denim items thrown into fade posts. I for one enjoy the variety; when I’m looking for some fade porn its easy to find hours of that on superfuture; when I’m looking for some interesting, informative stuff that’s not all the same I come here.

      I disagree. The Rawr Denim crew has been doing a really good job of using Fade Friday to profile raw denim in its many forms. I’d rather see a faded bag , well-worn jacket, or nontraditional pair of jeans than the same old heavyweight denim again and again and again. Keep up the good work guys!

    Lip balm or bottle cap? My girlfriend has an extremely similar fade from keeping a Kirin Ichiban cap in her back pocket.

    That guy starched the shit out of those…Diors don’t fade that quickly, I have had two pairs of raw MIJ’s, that contrast takes a solid 8 months

    I love how Dior raws fade. It really is a painfully slow process to get a decent fade out of one(even for MIJs), but when they do, you know it was all worth it! I am wondering if this guy even wore his pair to sleep!

    Hey, I just purchased a pair of these off of styleforum, and was wondering if these jeans are one-wash, meaning they are pre-washed to get ride of shrinkage before being sold, or if they are just plain raw? Thanks.
