I found the UHR-denim to fade quite fast, don't have experience with the other ones, though.

All IH denim fade at different rates. In my experience: UHR sheds indigo faster than any denim I've owned; 21oz and XHS are "average". Their 17oz Natural Indigo is supposed to be very stubborn, but after many months will all of a sudden fade quick. I can't comment on the yenim denim tho... how much actual wear time do you have on them? Post some pics!

I bought them fall 2017 and didn't really wear them that much because they shed a lot onto my shoes. I also didn't love the cut so I got them tapered by a very good denim shop in my neighborhood. Up until Sept. 2018 I probably wore them for a total of 30-50 days, but since then I wear them every day. I've already had to get the front crotch repaired / reinforced, and I see the back crotch blowing out soon. I'll post pictures this weekend!

Absolutely. This is my experience with the IH 1955 UHR, super heavy but really comfy, perfect denim for this time of the year.

Off topic, but anybody tried the Iron Heart Loopwheeled tees? They seem to be the only ones available in my size (46-48).

Any feedback? Do you like them? Do they stretch or shrink?

I like them fine. I have the IHT-1610 in grey and the IHT-1721 in green. They're very well made and I have not experienced any shrinkage. I can't get as excited about them as I do about a shirt or a pair of jeans. I would like them better if they were indigo I think. Note that they are heavyweight but SDA makes some even weightier shirts, in indigo.

I also have the IHTB-01, which is very cool (but not loopwheeled).

A little update on my 634s' 

It has been a long time with the jeans, but these have become my daily pair now that my Sam's are retired. They were repaired by the wonderful people at Detroit Denim.

These have accompanied by on a lot of travels, rodeos in Alberta Ca, driving across the US and Canada up to Alaska (in January), winter hiking in Quebec, and plenty of walks with the pooches!

Got some baby-fades coming through on these overdyed 634-Ns
Also, the pocket backs are starting to go after about one month of wear. I knew I'd be burning through them quite fast, but didn't expect it to happen that fast.

Some awkward pics of my DWC2 IH-888-NT from a few weeks ago. Prolly 13+ months wear. Due for another wash soon, and some better pics. Still fading...

Excuse the mess, but here is some new jeans. It's the PIH10ANS =) I'll give them a wash today.

IMG_20190606_194406-01.thumb.jpeg.8ad9958cf6cfb288f33aadd7dd1f90a6.jpeg

Just a quick edit; gave these a 50C soak then a cold wash in the washing machine (low spin setting). The water was quite deep in colour, so I was initially worried that I should have been lighter on the washing style. The jeans are still very dark, so I probably just limited the initial rub-off. I had these hemmed by IHUK to 34", but could have chopped a bit more off because I'm a shorty. Also, I'll remember for next time to specify including the cutoffs in the package because it would have been nice to have it for future colour comparison.

PS, probably best not to put these suckers in the dryer. I spent a solid amount of time scrubbing the inside of the dryer because it was so blue! I eventually soaked an old T-shirt in water and threw it into the dryer for a spin. Saved me some effort.

Before -> After (size 31, btw)

Waist: 41.5cm -> 40.5cm

Front rise: 28cm -> 27.25cm

Back rise: 40.5cm -> 38.75cm

Thigh: 32.25cm -> 31.75cm

Knee: 23cm -> 22.5cm

Hem: 22cm -> 21.75cm

Inseam: 86.25cm -> 83.25cm

I could have managed a slightly smaller waist, but I don't think my legs would have been comfortable. Overall, I'm very happy with these!
