    The Flat Head

    Interesting... Just received the FH cafe racer, incredible service from @Danny @ Rivet & Hide as always. The leather is, as with all their jackets, gorgeous, and the stitching is laser focused. The back panel is a work of art, can't get get pics of that until the other half gets home! Cold day in Melbourne so a hoody on, which works I think, but obviously I'll normally be wearing a tee or shirt.

    Agree on all the above. I'm 6'1, 185lbs and a solid size 44 in their shirts, and even funnier, an XXL in their jackets!:

    These cutz don't heal

    Came for the thread title, stayed for the discussion! My favourites have changed enormously over the years (I imagine this is true of almost all of us?), but at the moment I really love: The Mister Freedom lot 64 cut (extra medium, almost high rise, generous hem for engineer boots), especially in the Okinawa denim and NOS Organic Cotton. The Mister Freedom chinos also deserve honourable mention. The Real McCoys 004 and Joe McCoys 991XH. Very similar 60s style cuts, great fabric, an extremely comfortable jean. The Samurai 710 if I want something a bit more contemporary, quite a mid-low rise, slim silhouette. Following @Iron Horse's example, some fit pics. Mister Freedom Okinawa lot 64 (with bonus moody little man): Mister Freedom NOS 64: Mister Freedom Chinos: Real McCoys 004:

    TCB

    Hey folks, Does anyone know/have contact with TCB? I ordered the size 46 cat boy jacket midday Friday, and asides from receiving the 'thanks for your order' email, I've had no contact, which is weird because they shipped out the size 48 same day. I've used the 'inquiry form' on the site (on Monday), and haven't got a response, and also tried contacting Inoue via IG, but no dice.

    Those look fantastic IH, nice one! PSA - I'm selling my TCB Cat Boy size 48, as mentioned, and it's getting offers on Grailed. Considering Grailed take a percentage, plus the people on there tend to not appreciate the clothing as much as our crowd, I'm just letting folks know in case they want to get an offer in before I make a decision (asking for $200USD).

    Haha, it’s a very light feeling jacket actually; feels lighter and softer than the 50s. I would say sizing up one from your 50s is solid advice @Broark. See here for measurements and pics - https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12890.0

    Appreciate the thoughts, cheers!

    It does mate. Still, just looking at the minor differences between 46 and 48, I think the 46 might just give that fitted edge. I've posted up the sales thread over on the Ironheart forums and on Grailed, we'll see what happens!
  15. Aries

    TCB

    Now I compare 46 and 48, there's a tiny difference in measurements, might just give me a slightly more fitted look. If anyone wants to grab this 48 for a slight discount/trade for a 46, let me know.

    TCB

    Half an inch shrinkage in chest and shoulders; the length has shrunk a bit more than that and now sits just above the belt.
  17. Aries

    TCB

    @mpukas yeah the shoulders and waist width are a touch large (sleeves are fine), but definitely something I think I can fix with a hot soak/tumble, which I think I’ll get to today, will post pics after. Still happy with this fit if it stays like it, it’s a comfortable size.
  18. Aries

    TCB

    Ok folks, the size 48 is in (2 sizes up from my 50s jacket FYI). Thoughts on fit? It's the one wash version so I reckon I can get further shrinkage out pretty easily with a hot wash/tumble.
  19. Aries

    TCB

    I got it One Wash, so hopefully if it's too big I can send it back for an exchange quite easily (though bought direct from TCB, not sure how the exchange process works...!). I'll post pics when I receive!

    Ordered a size 48 cat boy jacket. I’m a 44 in the 50s but the cat boy seems significantly smaller. Time will tell...

    Fascinating, can we get some insight? What do you look for/what are the signs of really good quality leather, in your opinion?

    Just received my rider jacket from DC4 in Germany. Incredible quality, as you’d expect. Just need to let the shoulders soften and fall a bit (as ever with FH’s quirky shoulder to chest ratio).

    black jeans with arcs?

    Samurai 710BK or higher would be Ironheart 666 black.
