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.
