    Here some fits from 2012. It pretty much looks like your fit pic from the previous page @longshanks. I'm not one to tuck it in, as the fabric started very stiff and even though it's softened a lot over the years it's still pretty thick. The length has never bothered me or even crossed my mind. I don't wear it to work much, I could, but it's my go to when getting out of town. It's seen a fair share of rowing, hiking and camping. The small patch on the back is due to an ember that jumped from a campfire I had my back turned to. I wear it on it's own but also love it as a jacket over crew neck sweatshirt.

    Iron Heart Jeans

    I bought them fall 2017 and didn't really wear them that much because they shed a lot onto my shoes. I also didn't love the cut so I got them tapered by a very good denim shop in my neighborhood. Up until Sept. 2018 I probably wore them for a total of 30-50 days, but since then I wear them every day. I've already had to get the front crotch repaired / reinforced, and I see the back crotch blowing out soon. I'll post pictures this weekend!

    Iron Heart Jeans

    Bought a pair of the yenim 666-s about a year ago and am a little disappointed. It's my first pair of Iron Heart and I was expecting them to shed indigo a lot faster than they have been. I also notice the crotch is a bit tight, so It's definitely going to blow out before these age a ton. Maybe it's due to the materials used for this iteration, but seeing if anyone has had a similar experience this this specific jean or cut in general.

    Acronym.

    Thank you guys for your responses. It's pretty bad: along the whole length of the shoulders, at both arm creases and both wrists. Rainy pass flat out said no. I'll keep trying ACR. In doing research on this I found another forum with a guy who said he spoke to someone who worked for Gore-tex. The guy said he would deny it if ever confronted, but says there are certain people who's oils and sweat just don't mix well with Gore-Tex, and pieces are much quicker to delam. Thinking back, I've had Gore-Tex jackets for the past 20+ years and they all delam. Guessing it's time to move onto a new fabric.

    Delamintaion Update Nothing back from ACR proper. The boss tweeted back and said the fix would be a tedious job of cutting out the delamination and applying seem tape. I'm thinking about grabbing some Gear Aid Gore-tex patches, cutting out the delamination and applying them to the inside of the jacket, and then seam taping off the edges of the patches. I know these patches are meant to go on the outside of a shell, but it seems easier to apply 4x6" patches instead of small strips of seem tape. Thoughts?
