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!

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

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).

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).

      The Strike Gold 2103 Classic Straight , size 34. 17oz indigo denim, mud dyed weft. Vintage style straight cut. Bought as one-wash. Washed once more and worn 1/2 day. After owning other TSG cuts, I'd say this cut is more suited for western builds, and runs true to tagged size for a straight cut. The waist will probably stretch up an inch more with wear. I think I still have the original tags, too.
