    they're fucking beautiful.

    i was thinking 301s but these very well may be my next pair of jeans.

    how many are being made?

    and does the denim fade considerably faster than typical IH jeans?

    kiya, if I fit in size 30 5507s, size 31 in these would be just about right?

    Did you mention there would also be a jacket released with these, Kiya? Also, will the overdye come off on other garments, couches, etc?

    Black overdyed versions only. Should be releasing on December 19th.

    Man, those black overdyes are hotness. Been wanting some overdyes, been wanting some Ironhearts ... its an all in one package. Unfortunately that price is way outside my current denim budget. No doubt to the quality or question to the price, but yeah, I can't go there at the moment.

    @Kiya: is the black denim yarn-dyed or piece-dyed? if yarn-dyed, are the weft cores undyed, ala PBJ 007? or 45rpm nando x nando?

    It's overdyed, which is a term describing the process of garment dying. The entire garment is cut and sewn (out of indigo denim), then the entire thing is dipped into a fugitive pigment dye.

    Are these Zipper fly? This over-dyed process is the same as 3sixteen black coated?

    Dam that's tempting. If i was gonna drop 500 on a pair of jeans... Ironheart overdyed vs kmw hand-dyed... hmm

    tnx. so, basically, the same denim was used on both models. only difference is that, the blacks were piece dip-dyed in "fugitive pigment dye", right?

    sorry for the moronic questions. 445+tax is serious jeans purchase. i'm just trying to visualize how they're going to fade. i've seen some overdyes that did not fade to [usual denim] white ... instead, had a dull, monochromatic fading effect. in a nutshell, 2 fading stages on atari areas__ from black to indigo, then from indigo to [the usual] bare/undyed yarn core. pls correct me if i'm wrong.

    That is partially correct.. the fading isn't very dull, at least it hasn't been on past Iron Heart overdyed jeans.

    There are photos within the Iron Heart thread on Superfuture, that thread is extremely long and i don't know where it is in there.. there aren't many photos, there's less than a 100 pairs of Overdyed IH jeans out there with people.
