    there didn't seem to be a specific Wabash clothing thread, so thought I'd post one up for others who love faded wabash clothes

    I have wabash shirts, vests and love the look when they get faded.... but held off on the pants (would wear separately of course) and would only wear them in public after they've been faded. Newly minted wabash looks costumey to me, but so do new jeans, so YMMV.

    the pictures below have me thinking of buying Ironheart IH-814 painter pants (slim fitting, workwear painter details), fading them with several washes, and splattering them with white paint here and there. Then they'd be wearable and really good looking with t-shirts, boots and a cafe racer leather jackets I think

    what say thee? my initial impression is that like all Wabash, the pants will look costumey when they are dark, new and raw...but look great faded and worn in, and offer a unique substitute for regular denim that you don't see done well very often

    think I'll pull the trigger and see

    well, there was 1 pair left in my size, so I pulled the trigger on Ironheart 814's and will set to work fading them when they arrive. The painter pant details makes them more wearable, imho, than if they were styled like regular 5 pocket denim jeans.

    I'll post before and after pics over the next few months but anyone who likes wabash can please use this thread to post up pics of favorites

    my latest
