Indigo is an interesting substance. For starters, it’s a pretty crummy dyestuff, which is actually the underlying reason why raw denim fades. That said, some denim labels have been pushing the boundaries of what makes denim raw.

Iron Heart has long been one of the forerunners in new styles and techniques and the Iron Heart 634S-B jeans are a great example. They’re crafted from a 21 oz. indigo denim which is then overdyed with a black fugitive pigment. As they get worn in, they will gradually fade from black to indigo to white. It’s quite an interesting concept and IronHeart has executed it perfectly.

Today’s Fade Friday is a pair relatively early into its lifetime, but is already well on its way to promising results. Worn by superdenim forum member Max Power, these jeans have been subjected to 5 months of regular wear and have yet to see a wash. Needless to say, we’re excited to see the results as Max is known for his fantastic fades.

    I’d like to see these after a wash!

    These look really nice, but I don’t believe he’s wearing them anymore – I think that he outgrew these jeans and had to sell them. Kinda too bad, I would’ve liked to see how they continued to evolve.

    Man, those are beautiful honeycombs. I’ve been wearing a pair of Levi’s for 9 months (everyday for the past 5 months) no wash yet and they haven’t faded to that sort of white. But what am I comparing here…

    Anyway, great fades. Sucks if he in fact did sell em.

    The more I see these post the more I realize that the key to dope honeycombs in the back knee area is to NOT have tight fitting denim. It seems like if you wear a less skinny cut there’s enough fabric to bunch up nicely in the back and create these cool patterns. If anyone has any other suggestions/tips please let me know!

      Depends on your view of what “dope honeycombs” are. I, personally, find the A.P.C. P S honeycombs to be very cool. As for suggestions, there’s no try way to tell you how to fade, but you hit the nail on the head with your statement.

    Another perfect sample from the Honeycomb master Max
    And yes you have better chances to receive great big honeycombs if worn your pants not tight. And it helps more idf you do a lot of bycicle

    Where can i buy this jeans? need info ASAP

    Hi. I’m completely new to this as I bought my first pair of raw denim from Hiut as a part of my attempt to buy less but get more when it comes to clothes. I’ve now fallen in love with the jeans and the idea of raw denim. Your site has provided me with lots of great reading and useful inormation, however I now have one major worry. I’ve been wearing my jeans everyday for a month but did not soak them first. I now know that that is not in accordance with received wisdom, especially with regards to avoiding early crotch blow out. Would you recommend soaking my jeans now despite the 30 days or so of wear? Will it still contribute to avoiding early crotch blowout?
