Heavyweight denim

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
All,

What are the pros of heavyweight denim (say, 20oz and above for the sake of discussion). Are they more durable than the 10oz - 15oz? Do they look better? Do they fade better? Or is it mostly a feel & coolness issue (authenticity, bragging rights, etc)?

Thanks,

JD

I have a 21oz Efes Sky (not produced anymore, but same denim as in IronHeart I've been told). It feels great, is very warm and soft, lasts longer than APC denim (only I can compare it to) and fades well.

Good for the winter/fall...hot as hell in the summer

Theyre a bit harder to break in than lighter weight denim.
but usually heavier denim fades a bit nicer, you get more of a 3D effect aha
and please correct me if im wrong. We all make mistakes lol

My IronHeart's are my favorite pair of denim and feel near indestructible. They don't stretch as much as lightweight, at least the ironhearts, maybe a quarter inch in the waist. Mista is right about the fades...takes awhile, but looks fantastic when they materialize. and they're great if you live in a cool climate city and spend a lot of time walking, commuting, etc. I don't wear them in the spring/summer though....too damn hot.
