Fade Friday – SExIHxINDO16 (9 Months, 3 Soaks, 2 Washes)

This week we have another Fade Friday coming straight to you from Indonesia, via our friend Radit, who is rocking the ever-patriotic SExIHxINDO16. The jeans were designed by Self Edge in collaboration with Iron Heart as a special acknowledgement of the burgeoning denim and vintage scene in Indonesia.

As such, the SExIHxINDO16 model features Iron Heart‘s unsanforized heavyweight denim (an uncommon production for them) that produces intensely contrastive fades, which are already apparent on Radit‘s jeans after 9 months of everyday wear.

Having given the jeans an initial soak, Radit has since given the jeans two additional soaks as well as a handwash and a seawash. All in all, we’re looking forward to what the future has in store for these jeans.
