    I own one of their 22 oz overdyed black jackets. Its hecking legit, but I kind of wish I would have gotten a type III jacket with pockets. I also own 3 of their flannels and a couple pairs of 888 jeans in 21 oz overdyed black and indigo 25 oz. I hate to be a gaygy little fanboy for specific brands, but IH is legitimately the most well made clothing I’ve ever worn, and the fades you get from their denim is top notch. Like, God damn, their flannels are literally just perfect. Its also all just traditional americana style, so it perceivably will stand the test of time and never go out of style

        Their flannels are literally perfect, hence why they know they can charge whatever they want. In my opinion, $300 is not that much money for a piece of clothing you’ll have forever

          Maybe they are if you’re really sensitive to wool or just really like their patterns, but I would never spend more than $50 on a literal cotton "flannel" shirt. Also found this picture while googling them, lol

            What size is that? I feel like it’s a medium and I’m gonna need a large. it looks slightly too small on you for me.

          • Anonymous says:

            This isn’t me, but I have three of their flannels and can say that their sizes run pretty small. I’m 6’1", 180 pounds with an athletic build and although I usually wear size large with most US brand shirts, their XXXL sizes fit me perfectly. You should always reference their size charts and compare it to the dimensions of one of your best fitting button up shirts.

            wool flannels aren’t > cotton flannels
            you wear cotton in the summer and wool in the fall and winter
            their heavy ass cotton flannels make no sense to me though, for a heavy flannel i’d rather just have a pendleton or filson wool flannel all day long
            the iron heart shit is supposed to be workwear and i think for motorcycle riding though so cotton makes sense for it
            that being said i cap out at maybe 300 for a cotton flannel they’re overpriced

            >cotton in the summer
            Eh, I don’t wear much flannel in the summer at all, and if I did I wouldn’t want something that’s made of cotton and is therefore going to wick sweat poorly. Maybe I’m just personally more sensitive to heat though; I’m pretty sure I sweat more easily than most. I don’t think we disagree much, since I don’t think cotton flannels are inherently worse, just not worth paying much for.

          • Anonymous says:

            wicking isn’t the be all when its hot, its only good for athletic wear doing high activity then taking it off and washing it after. linen and loosely woven thin cotton can be better. what the fiber’s made of matters but the weave and weight of the fabric matters even more with summer wear imo.

            the thinner light weight ones fill the same sort of role as a hoodie in the evening

            Where I live it’s rarely below 70-75 in the summer while I’m awake, and since I sweat easily I pretty much never layer. If I am layering in the summer I’m usually travelling somewhere less gross, and I suppose I’m often doing lots of walking/hiking when I’m travelling, hence my need for a wicking fabric. Again I’m sure it makes sense in the situation you’re describing; it’s just not something I usually encounter personally.

            >hiking in the summer in tropical climates
            Did you read my post? I never mentioned doing this. As I said, if I’m layering in the summer, which is usually how I wear flannels, I’m probably travelling somewhere colder. Also I don’t know if you’ve never been to the mid-atlantic, but a low of 70 F during daytime in summer is by no means a tropical climate.

      Any general tips on buying a first denim jacket? Love the look of but the price is pretty steep. I’m leaning towards buying black new and then getting a cheap faded denim one used. Definitely agree the pockets are necessary. Maybe the thickness of the denim made it awkward?

      • Anonymous says:

        If I had to do it all over again, I would have gotten a 19 oz jacket instead of 22 oz. Don’t get me wrong, I love IH’s heavy weight denim, but only for the jeans. To me, some of the best looking Type III jackets will have a noticeable amount of softness and flowy texture, and the 22 oz jacket is still feeling pretty tough and thick after 2 cycles of fall and winter. There are some other companies out there that have good jackets at a smaller price, Naked and Famous being one of them. In my opinion though, if you’re already dropping at least $250 on a raw denim jacket you might as well just drop the extra $200 and get an IH, its really not that much money in the big picture, especially if you are likely keeping the jacket for most of your life. The even, straight texture of their weaves just makes the denim wear in beautifully compared to any other companies I’ve seen. And yeah, they are certainly a good example of the point of diminishing returns where you really don’t get THAT many more features and build quality compared to other slightly less expensive companies, but they are arguably in the top 3 denim companies on the market right now, so you might as well just get the best of the best.
        Just checking their website right now I found a 19 oz black jacket with pockets and good amount of stock left

        My favorite denim jacket I own is from a brand called Encampment Co. which was a one man brand out of I think Arizona. Just one guy sewing everything himself. About a year back the dude broke his arm or shoulder or something in an accident and closed down which sucks because I’d buy my entire wardrobe from that brand. It’s slightly longer in the body which is nice because I’m 6’2" and it’s Japanese selvedge denim. I love it, BUT…it’s black. If I had to do it over again I’d get a blue selvedge jacket because the way it fades and breaks in looks better and blue is more versatile
        I guess my only real advice is be deliberate with your color choices if you are looking for some flexibility and trying to avoid double denim if you don’t like it

    Since the bidenflation nonsense, I can only imagine how expensive IH stuff is now. it was already way overpriced but because of "muh iron heart muh quality" people justified it to themselves, but I couldn’t imagine actually paying the prices they ask
    don’t know how the brand stays in business but I guess the high prices are part of that, they keep raising and raising them to stay alive

    • Anonymous says:

      Its considerably expensive partly because of the brand, but it is mostly because they have ethically sourced materials and labor, and they do actually make what is arguably the most durable pair of selvedge jeans in the market without cutting any corners and including as many features as possible (lined back pockets, belt loops sewn into waistband, selvedge fabric on the interior of the button fly, etc). Since they’ve built a rep for actually being the most well made jeans, they can add another $100 for a pair of jeans if they want to. Its the same reason why Gibson guitars are so expensive. The brand knows that everyone knows their guitars are hecking awesome, so they charge what they want

        you can get rogue territory or freenote cloth which is just as good, made in the USA, and costs less

        one of the main reasons IH is so expensive is their international operations are all based out of the UK, so they make them in Japan, ship them to the UK and then ship from the UK to stores/consumers
        what an absolute waste of money to do all that extra shipping and overhead that gets passed on to the consumer

          This is true. With any japanese made clothing you should attempt to purchase through a proxy to save an extra 40-50% that european/american retailers add onto these pieces of clothing. If you buy a pair of 21oz Iron Hearts directly from the japanese online shop, its $200, which is literally half the price of what you’d spend buying it in the US. I guess the issue is a matter of supply available in the Japanese shops

          Absolutely loath the cut of their pants. They’re stuck in 2011. I’m not a 145lb lanklet anymore, I need room for my thighs. I do not skip leg day. Iron Heart and Naked & Famous accommodate said thighs.

          the markup isn’t as high as you think even with made in usa stuff back when cone mills existed (they were the cheapest) its more like 50% usually i actually have designed jeans and sourced everything for the company before.

      >what is arguably the most durable pair of selvedge jeans in the market
      the most durable jeans on the market for doing actual work in aren’t going to be raw denim they’re going to be pre washed jeans pobably with stretch fabric. the break in process weakens fibers and causes premature blow outs. its rare for any raw denim jeans to make it over 10 years without holes in them or major darning/patching repairs at some point. and after a certain degree extra weight of the denim doesn’t make it more durable it just makes blowouts more likely.
      out of all the denim in my closet, which is a lot i’m the same anon telling people to proxy buy with a friend in japan, and i’m also a contractor so i actually use workwear for its intended purpose daily… the most durable pair of jeans i own are a pair of 19oz rustlers (wrangler’s cheaper diffusion line) that cost me $14.88 at wal mart, i remember the price because it was funny. my second most durable pair are some jeans i forgot the brand of meant for climbing with a double reinforced crotch gusset.

          I wear a pair of wrangler cowboy cuts for my manual labor work and they are fine. My last pair lasted me a couple years. I also own some iron heart 25 oz and samurai 21 oz jeans. With 100% cotton selvedge, my experience has been that the “durability” depends on how well the jeans fit your particular body and how the dimensions of the jeans are designed. Although my iron hearts fit me very well, the crotch area hangs a little lower than my samurai’s and because of that there is slightly more stress in the crotch of my iron hearts, which will eventually lead to a blowout some years down the line. This all depends on what you do for activities though. If I was regularly spreading my legs really wide, the iron hearts would likely blow out sooner. When it comes to friction wear, I think any heavier selvedge denim will be more resistant, but at the end of the day any poly mix denim will have more wiggle room for stretching and you’ll be less likely to damage your denim from that compared to a pair of 100% selvedge that doesn’t really allow for any stretch. In summary, the only reason you should buy selvedge is because you like how they look. All the “quality” and “durability” talk is up for debate and it really is not so cut and clear

      • Anonymous says:

        >the looks are why you should like them.
        100% agreed. There’s a point of diminishing returns in terms of quality, durability, materials and construction with regards to price tag and IH sits beyond that point.
        What IH excels at is looks. If you’re into selvedge, sick fades and the like, you can’t do better than IH, at least that I know of.

    The best thing about a denim brand is obviously their denim. Unless they specify something special about the other garments like being loopwheeled or using a special dye, they’re just the same basics but thicker.

    As far as iron heart itself goes, for some it’s a sort of pinnacle for thickness. There are a good handful of brands that will do 18oz+, so if iron heart makes you balk at their prices feel free to use them instead.

That being said, not everything the guy reviews and promotes is absolute shit. Based on my experience wearing a Heat Straps jacket for work, his hype for that company is well warranted. I guess it all comes down to whether you as a customer know what to look for and whether something is realistically worth buying

            But then why would you need Carl Muravsky or any other youtuber for?

            Regardless of any shilling they do for shitty brands, they also promote brands that are actually great and put it on people’s radars. you just have to know what to look for when you see this stuff and to make sure it’s actually going to be worth the money you’d be spending. It doesn’t take much digging around to figure out that Nicks boots are not worth the hype

        Does he actually larp tho? The guy is an actual tradesman right?

        lol do officedrone denim nerds from reddit really see "being a tradesman" as a point of authority these days?
        here’s some evisus i built and remodeled houses in for 16 years.

      I own one the heat straps chief coats and use it for geotechnical drilling work in the PNW winters. As much of a gay Carl Murawski is, the jacket is legit. Haven’t had any issues with it whatsoever, the heavy waxed canvas has prevented all water from getting inside the jacket, and yeah the stitching work is quite heavy duty. I honestly don’t think I’ll need to rewax it yet this year

    some of you gays need to put away your lame hot takes about "ooo IH is too expensive, yr being scammed" and take a minute to think. No one is buying IH because of the hecking label bro. Like who is trying to flex the fact they own IH to anyone? the reason people are paying $350 for a flannel is because they think it’s worth it for the fit, material, and construction.

    simply put, I have looked for flannels across the entire internet and there’s no other flannels that fit as well (nice and slim, not hecking huge and swimming with tons of folds in back), are as comfy (super soft but insanely thick, thicker than anything youve ever encoutered), and are autistically crafted with zero defects, not even a stitch out of place.

    instead of being a little poor b***h you should be taking some notes and trying to understand why people *would* pay that much for a flannel. put that shit on your grail list. i realize they arent in any stores other than NY and SF so you cant really try them on yourself but heck.

      The main problem with Iron Heart is that they use jap sizing and if you’re tall then you’re absolutely hecked. The sleeves aren’t nearly long enough and the people who manage US shit will heck with you if you return shit.

          when people say height its just a rule of thumb on body averages. its actually torso and arm length that matters. if you’re tall but all legs you won’t have a problem with shirts.
          for example i’m 5’7 and i have the average reach of a 6’2 guy and short legs, picture alexander volkanovski’s skeletal frame. so despite being short sleeve length becomes an issue for me a lot. and i can’t wear shirts that aren’t tailored.

          This is you.

          tall guys have a hard time with shirts from japan in general

          I returned a XXL because the arms were just way too short. Even on the website the sleeves look too short for the guys wearing them.

          fat or thin? I’m 6’3" and have no hecking clue how to size

          All you can do is try shit on and see what fits and then maybe measure that. Problem is that everyone measures shit a bit differently. I went to a tailor to get my measurements and right now I’m 53" across the chest and shoulders and that shit don’t fly unless you’re also morbidly obese with what iron heart makes. Denim anything is basically what you get and can’t really be altered without making shit look weird.

        I’m 6’4 and have no problems with their sizing

        fat or thin? I’m 6’3" and have no hecking clue how to size

        tall guys have a hard time with shirts from japan in general

        I’m 6’2", 185 lb and wear an XXXL which fits perfectly. I’m pretty sure they only go up to about XXXXL, but if you’re not fat you shouldn’t have any problems.

      exactly.
      its fine that they’re not in the market for it but at least propose an alternative if you’re going to shit on it.
      high quality cotton flannels are hard to find.
      for the fit part l2 alterations but even with that knowledge at your disposal you’re going to have a hard time finding stuff as nice as ih.
      it is overpriced but so is everything imported from japan. you’re paying for not only for high quality clothes but also a ton of import bullshit on top of it.

    my only problem with iron heart is all the ugly and autistic boomers who wear full ih and look like they’re wearing a costume because they’ve never worked a day in their life or ridden a bike before that styleforum, supefuture and reddit is full of.
    ih is inexplicably popular with workwear cringelords with no sense of fashion.
    but their clothes are good and look good if you’re not one of those guys. lifting helps.

      Pretty much this. IH is actually hecking NICE, but as with any style of clothing it looks like shit on the soi coding monkeys that wear that shit. If you actually ride motorcycles or are athletic/buff, the IH fits look great

        a lot of my disdain for it comes from that one german dude in the mid 2000’s who used to post a different full iron heart fit every single day of his life on superfuture, all looked autistic. its really just that one guy who might not even post anymore.

        This. Crotch blowouts happen when you’re too fat or are just stupid and buy the wrong fit and size. If you get a crotch blowout, it’s your own fault, not the jean’s fault

        • Anonymous says:

          those are by far the biggest factors but the way denimfags go long periods between washes also damages the fibers in areas sweat accumulates which contributes to crotch blowouts a lot.
          or thinking its a good idea ever to ride a bicycle in raw denim. just don’t try even if they fit well it hecks them up.
