Warehouse Deadstock Blue 1001XX (1915 model) color fade report vol.02

It has been 13 months since I started wearing it; it has passed one year, but the color has not faded that much since it is worn twice a week.

About 12 washings in 13 months.

I try to create a hard wearing environment by wearing it during frequent muscle training and brushing.

Warehouse DSB 1001XX (1915) Overview

Purchase date: June 2021

Price: 35,200 yen

Denim for deadstock blue, using 7.5 x 7.5. Banner denim was 7 x 7 and weighed 13.5 oz, so I think it weighs about 12.5-13 oz.

I think it’s the same fabric as DSB’s XX models from the 1940s, “1000xx” and “1000zxx”, and the 1936 model “1004xx”.

Dyeing:This model is made of 50% natural indigo.

DSB 7.5 x 7.5 Fabric Features

Its greatest feature is that it is not stiff and has a strong bounce.

It has good bounce and graininess, but there is really no firmness, so the wisker will have to be forced at least during one-washing.

Other characteristics that I would raise are that it seems to have a strong graininess and high oil content.

Perforated environment and washing

Approx 13 months. Worn 2-3 days a week. Occasionally worn and brushed during muscle training.

I regularly stain them with mud and for the past six months I have been adding glue made from potato starch when I wash them.

Also, as mentioned in the fabric characteristics, the color was going to fade thinly without any crispness, so I wet brushed the fabric somewhat, rusted the buttons, and did some self-processing.

Color fading/ageing Report No.2

WAREHOUSE Deadstock Blue Faded

The fabric has a great atmosphere, and the sewing is perfect.

I’m planning to do some more self-processing, so we’ll see from here, in combination with natural perforation.

The texture is different from the regular Warehouse line, and there are no extreme neps.

It appears flat at first glance, but the unevenness is quite strong and the tension is loose.

The unevenness of the fabric can be seen on the reverse side.

The buttons are salt and full of red rust. I feel like I could stain the fabric a little more.

I was thinking of wearing 2 inch oversized denim with a cinch back, but when I squeeze the cinch back, it sags at the hips and is uncomfortable to wear.

So I sewed the waist to make it just the right size. (I should have sewn it a little neater)

It has a good bounce and graininess, so the brushed area has a good frizzy feel.

Puckering also appears very much.

My personal favorite part of this model is the stitching. It uses a fine thread, but it survives without losing to brushing.

The leather patches are in a beef jerky state if you choose the air wash, a washing method that uses heat to kill germs.

The cinch back has also rusted to some extent, so it has an atmosphere.


I’m still waiting to see how it will wear out, but I’m curious what people who have worn this fabric normally think of it.

Those who wear their guts out have created a good atmosphere, but I think they will be knobbly if worn in an ordinary way.

Frankly, I wonder why Warehouse released this as the highest peak.

I thought the coolness of the one-washed condition was very good from the DD series, but it is not worth wearing.

Furthermore, this denim is a 1915 model, so the fabric is a possible replica, but I think it would be different to make a reproduction of a 30s-40s XX in the same fabric.

Huh? Wasn’t Warehouse a brand that sold perfect reproductions?

Good parts, good sewing, great atmosphere in one-washed condition. But when you wear it, it looks like a reverse of the original XX, doesn’t it? I feel like it’s going backwards from the original XX.

However, it’s a good denim in that it’s a self-processing denim that you can enjoy, and there’s nothing else like it.

I would like to let the color fade a bit more and sum up the DSB.
