Ordered these in March of 2019 & wore them when I wanted to sport a new looking pair.  Hoping give them a ton of wear this Summer and see what kind of fades I can develop before the weather changes in the Fall.

Many folks here have described this denim as tightly woven & more akin to IH's stiffer/crispier Extra-Heavy 25oz as opposed to their Flagship 21oz which embodies that "sweatpants" feel almost immediately.  Those comments all check out in my experience and I'd add that the light weight of this fabric really adds to the comfort, especially in the Summer.  Overall, it's quite clean & tidy in appearance.

Today I finally broke their dry spell & gave them a really hot soak with some good agitation by hand.  To dry them out, I left them in the hot bed of my truck & finished them off in the dryer.  After several wears from new, there was plenty of room to shrink this pair up so no mercy.

Here are some before/after measurements followed by some pics.  Shrink averaged 2.97% and I don't think you could possibly get any more.

Surprising amount of Indigo shed in the soak ???

@Hoppy_IPA Great write up and documentation. And a nice looking pair of jeans too. I’m always tempted to dip my toe in the 14oz water, but summer is so short here that every time I started getting serious about it, the temperatures drop.

These are my “warm day” jeans, my “hot day” jeans are my 16oz 666’s which I swear are noticeably lighter and more breathable than the 142 denim somehow. Love this denim though, looks like it’s going to fade beautifully.

@neph93 - Thank you.  I always like reading how people's measurements change with wear & laundering.  Very helpful if you're considering buying or washing a pair.

@IH-GARY   Terrific fades you have going there.  Hoping to get close to that by Fall.  How long have you been working on those? Washes/Soaks?

@hoppy_IPA - these have been in rotation for a couple of years now and washed at least 20x!
