TW-1220FI - Future Indigo - Straight Cut
« on: March 15, 2010, 10:06:22 am »
Future Indigo is dipped fewer times than is normal, to encourage fast fading.  33x35:

I am really interested in the speed of fading on these. Does anyone own a pair yet?

Just got a pair of these. Really like the cut and the color. Normally a 32, but sized down to a 31. Will these stretch out? If so, how much?

They are very tight at this point. However, the denim is really comfortable.

Most denim will stretch, this is down to the nature of the twill weave, it is also why it is particularly good at forming to your body.  That said, I have not had enough experience with the 1220FI to give you accurate info...G

rlchriss, can we please get a fit flick of your new pair? I am a W32 as well and am very interested to see what sizing down looks like. Thank you in advance!

I'll see what I can do on the fit pic tonight. You can tell it's comfortable denim. Just gotta get the size right. In my 3Sixteens, I sized down to a 31 and they're coming along nicely. But got to get a pair of TW or Iron hearts.  :-\

Just received the Future Indigo and love the fit.
My question is can I expect any shrinkage at all ?

I've got a pair that are just a bit over a month old, however, I've been rotating them with a couple of other pairs and so there's virtually no fading whatsoever.  The indigo crocks like crazy; every time I wear them I end up washing my hands a dozen times a day, just so I don't look like I have poor hygiene.  I don't mind indigo everywhere, but not everyone else thinks that's cool.  My employer does have some standards for appearances.

I'm probably a bad test case for how quickly and how well these fade, since I'm pretty sedentary.  Whenever I do get some decent wear on them, I'll post some pics.

This have a same details as the 1220NI ? Just it have a faster fading? I'm asking because i see in the 1220 NI page it says 160z. This is 15 or 16?

The NI is 16oz.  FI will fade faster than the NI, correct
