Fade Friday – EAT DUST Fit 67 (21 Months, 1 Wash)

Antwerp, Belgium may seem like an unlikely place to start a denim brand, but that is exactly where Eat Dust denim calls home. Founded by friends, Keith and Rob, who share a passion Harley Davidson motorcycle and denim, Eat Dust has been producing quality, unwashed selvedge jeans for a few years now. Since their launch, they’ve managed to whittle their offerings down to three fits and truly focus on producing only the highest quality products.

Marking the first Fade Friday feature on Eat Dust, this week showcases a well-worn pair of the Belgian line’s Fit 67 that belongs to one of our readers, Olaf. After being worn for 21 months and washed just once in cold water, we see a nice set of deep, high-contrast fades.

Interestingly enough, though the jeans have been worn for almost 2 years, they seemingly still have a lot of life left in them and are sure to hold up well over many wears to come. Also, contrary to denim folklore that claims raw denim must be worn tight to achieve “proper” fades, these jeans have developed clean, clear contrast lines despite the relatively loose fit.

    very interesting fades. ive never heard of this brand or Belgian denim. first things first, i don’t like the pocket arcuate, but on the fade pick it does look better than on the stock picture. there’s mention of deep, high contrast fades, i do not see that. also that leather patch is not to my liking, nor is the yoke. what i do like about these fades if the fit, and details of the denim. i think this is a niche product, similar to Iron Heart, so it is probably made to accustom a certain crowd.

  • Devan Prithipaul

    hmm, I’m really not a big fan, so ill just say that there is mention of deep, high contrast fades, i do not see that. i am not saying wether the fades are good or bad, i just do not think they are high contrast.

      Its a matter of opinion (and possibly lighting)…but I’m pretty sure the author is talking about the whiskers up top, which aren’t half bad re: contrast.

    “we see a nice set of deep, high-contrast fades.”

    What a joke…

    One wash? Holy indigo loss!

    I like the rise on those jeans. They really look nice.

  • Mike

    Why not made in Belgium? (make it where you design it)

  • http://www.facebook.com/aeqvitas Justin Wüst

    These look lovely, awsome blueish colour!

  • BillygoatsGruff312

    Where is the belt from?

  • Fist pump champ

    cool fades, but someone get this man a new belt. it seems like you gotta wear a ed hardy rhinestone tee with that lol

    • BillygoatsGruff312

      Not really. Just have to be a bad muther fucker. The belt’s hot.

  • Richalicious

    These look quite nice :) The fit isn’t my sort of thing but each to they’re own i suppose ?…..and from Belguim ? I thought they only made great beer ?! turns out they do great denim also :)

    I really love this kind of fading and wear pattern. And just imagine the many years of life left in them. How great they’ll turn out if worn another long time without washing. This kind of greenish-blueish fading is my personal favorite of denim evolution.
    I hope there is a chance for any updates on them over the next years

      I will keep you posted. Promised.

    Wow, you guys are fucking assholes.

    • Devan Prithipaul

      why?

  • Ryan Chinaski

    please no more ironic, bedazzled belts. that is the lamest piece ive seen in a long time.

  • yeezluise

    worst fade friday in a long time, the fades are okay but not really high contrast and i cant see any clear contrast lines. also the first pic also makes it look as if they were worn around the knees could just be the angle though

  • Chris

    Why the before are worn and no after shots are worn???? Mount the canvas!

    Great jeans from our neighbourcountry Belgium. Rotterdam-Antwerp is an hour-drive away, but I have never seen a dry Eat Dust at real. Time to visit Antwerp again, where they are located.

  • Worn Out London

    I have to say, the Eat Dust Jeans are very difficult to fade in my opinion. I’ve been wearing a pair for 18 months, with 5 months straight, and gave them 1 soak, but they still look really nice. Really good quality jeans!

  • kennydoggyu

    I’ve seen better in 1 year of wear. So…. eh.

  • Olaf

    I think I have to leave a few words on this. I really do not want to discuss the belt. I found it once on a sale in Düsseldorf, liked it, bought it and it was never taken of the EAT DUST again and will stay there.

    The fades on this denims are totally real. No tricks, no sea water wash, no extra bad behavior – simply wearing them. Once the needed to be washed because they actually started to smell funny. With my next ones I will try dry cleaning.

    Keep you guys posted.

    Dude, this is a motorcycle brand. What did you expect ? A Rainbow pony belt and skinny tight jeans ? Badass jeans, badass belt, badass fades. No need to dig any deeper.
