Iron Heart Flannels, Jeans, Wallets, and Keyrings!

We've got a big delivery from Iron Heart this week with two new shirts, a restock of two of their most popular versions of the 777 slim tapered jean, shell cordovan wallets in multiple styles and colors, and brass keyrings in two styles.

Their new flannel is made of a custom 9oz selvedge ombre check which is indigo dyed. These are good for year round wear and the pattern will change over time with regular wear and washing as the indigo slowly fades away. The new micro-fleece shirt may be the coziest shirt ever made by Iron Heart. These things are super comfortable, warm, and are built to last from the buttons to the inner twill-lined heavy wear areas.

Along with these two new shirts we've got new production runs of their cordovan wallets, 777 slim taped jeans in overdyed black and black warp/black weft styles, and brass keyhooks in two styles.  All these items are available now at all stores.

@kiya, is it still seeming likely that the new TFH shirts will be in by tomorrow? Thinking of trying to stop by the SF store  in the afternoon

(If not, I probably won’t be able to make it in to the city until next week—think I should be worried about them selling out before then?)

All stores except SESF have received the shipment, but SF's (hopefully) may arrive tomorrow at some point.  You can call the store before you're ready to head over to check if you'd like.

Yes, they're actually doing a small run of Shinki horsehide Delraiser jackets which release March 22nd.  
No plans to carry expand our leather jacket lines as we already carry almost 20 different leather jackets, which is quite a large selection for a retail store.

Nice to hear the Delraiser is coming back.  Are they keeping the same dimensions or did they update them?  The 40 fits me near perfect in their older models and I may pull the trigger this go around.

The new ones should be similar in fit from the last run from almost two years ago.  We'll have the new jackets measured and the size chart updated as soon as the new run arrives in a week or two.

Excited for the indigo linen shirts

Do you know whether they'll be cut the same as previous runs? It's seemed like TFH has made some significant changes to their shirt patterns, in general, over the last few years, & I'm still trying to dial in what works and what doesn't

In case you haven’t had a chance to try this on yet: I just picked one up, and it’s still the very narrow torso that a lot of TFH shirts have. The person I talked to at SE is a similar build to myself, and recommended that I go up one more size than my usual TFH size. I went with a 44 instead of my usual 42, and I’m happy with it. It was a bit longer than I’d like, but perfect fit otherwise. I ran it through the washer and dryer today, and although I didn’t take measurements, I’m guessing it shrank about a centimeter in all directions, which helped with the length. Long story short, I feel like two sizes up from your western size is the way to go, unless you are very slim. It’s a great shirt, I’m happy to finally have one!

Good info, thanks. Checked out the website last week & found out that it’s actually a cotton shirt that doesn’t contain any linen (nor anything besides cotton), and that kinda made me lose interest

Flat Head Winter Flannels and Indigo Dobby Shirts!

FLAT HEAD IS BACK!!!! 

Fuck we’re really excited about this one. After a year long hiatus while restructuring the company Nagano’s finest is back and we’re excited to have their flannels back in stock. They’ve made this new run of flannels exclusively for us without chin-straps because who really wants that stupid thing dangling off the end of a collar? We have two styles of flannels across four different colors in limited numbers as is the case with all Flat Head releases.

We also have a fresh run of their indigo rope-dyed dobby shirts in both short and long sleeve versions which come with custom painted metal Flat Head buttons.

All these items are available now at all stores and as usual with Flat Head, there will be no restocks.

@kiya The sizing on the new shirts are very different between models. Any insight as to why? I assume order according to size charts, and not actual size label?

If you're referring to the new Flat Head shirts it's because there are three completely different models we just received.  The flannel workshirt style in 3 colors, the vintage Pendleton style in one color, and the indigo dobby shirts in short sleeve and long sleeve versions. Each style is made with a completely different pattern.

@kiya

could you give me sizing advice on the Iron Heart micro fleece shirt? I normally wear a size XL UHF — would I take the same size for the micro fleece? It would appear that some people are sizing down in this one which is why I’m asking. I’d want to wear it like my UHF’s with just a tshirt underneath, as opposed to wearing it like a shacket.

The micro-fleece shirts fit almost a full size larger than other IH flannels, but it's sort of supposed to be worn slightly oversized as opposed to the slim fit of their flannel shirts.  If you want a slim fit as you normally would wear in their flannels I would go a size down.

Mister Freedom Snipes Shirt & Iron Heart Japanese Horsehide Type III Jacket

We've got the new Mister Freedom Snipes shirt and Iron Heart horsehide Type III jackets this week!

The Mister Freedom shirts are made of a Japanese mil-spec 100% cotton poplin and finished with corozzo wood buttons, an unstructured one-piece collar, chainstitch construction with narrow seams, and elbow reinforcement patches. Every detail is executed to the highest degree because that’s the only way Mister Freedom knows how to do anything. 

Iron Heart's horsehide Type III jackets are made from tea-core chrome-tanned horsehide in Himeji, Japan and are modified with a slightly longer body than the original Type III version. They come with the addition of two external hand-warmer pockets, two internal "gun" pockets, and an olive cotton twill lining.

You can find both these items at all stores now.

The Black 1947 Jean from Sugar Cane & Whitesville Blank Tees!

For 74 years we’ve been waiting for a Japanese made black/black 1947 jean, and they’re finally here. Sugar Cane has taken 1947 jean, which we could say is the most solid classic straight leg jean fit of all time, and made it out of their 13oz yarn-dyed black selvedge denim. This fabric has a sulfur dyed warp and a reactive dyed weft, this gives you a deep black jean which will age over time with some decent character, similar to how an indigo jean will age with regular wear.  These are now available up to size 40 at all stores and online. 

We've found that over the years one of our best selling blank t-shirts is Whitesville's Japanese made tees which come in 2-packs. We can rarely keep these in stock so we've had them do a production run for Self Edge so we can be fully stocked across all stores this spring. These are available again at all stores in black, gray, and white.

Poten Summer Collection of Japanese Baseball Caps

Poten’s summer collection is here!

This season we see Poten doing their caps in two new fabrics and a restock of their most popular cap. We have a new blue cotton and linen blend, a very nice washed out black linen, and a restock of their black nylon cap. These hats are crazy nice, nicer than any other straight ahead baseball cap we've ever seen. 

Every cap style has a super soft and supple inner leather headband which has been lightly treated so it’s not destroyed by sweat. 

The caps have zero exterior branding except for the stitches which you can see from the top of the crown from the interior branding tags being sewn into the center of the crown. The cap has a medium height crown and the brim has a medium length to it with 19 concentric stitches which feel and look pretty cool in person. If you're into baseball caps, you'll love what Poten is doing. 

All three of these caps are available now at all stores and online.

Pretty sure this fabric should stretch back to raw measurements; if you’re a true 36 you’ll be good with a 36

New Spring Releases from Seuvas

One of our favorite shirt brands has ventured into the world of flannels for the first time and it seems they can do no wrong. Seuvas come through with a shirt made of an original selvedge flannel complete with double-needle construction, gusseted side seams, and their signature single Amakusa pottery stone button as the only external branding.

It’s no surprise that Seuvas is capable of producing such nice flannels considering all textiles and even the sewing is done in-house in their own factory in Okayama, Japan. 

Last season one of the biggest hits at our stores was Seuvas’ first foray into a non-canvas garment with their indigo chambray. For their new summer collection they’ve taken that same chambray and done a double-indigo version with an indigo warp and indigo fill yarn. This creates a much deeper and darker indigo shade compared to a traditional chambray fabric.

Both of these shirts along with a restock of a few of their greatest hits are available now at all stores.

Really Nice Loopwheeled T-Shirts from Merz B. Schwanen

Over the past four years Merz B. Schwanen has slowly turned into many of our clients’ favorite basics brand. The combination of attention to detail, breadth of textile styles, and various colors and fibers has turned Merz into a basics powerhouse. Cotton garments are made of organic Greek cotton then loopwheeled on vintage knitting machines in Germany and finished with vintage-correct construction and trim. Everything from the knitting to the cutting and sewing is done in-house at Merz. The attention to detail in their tees, sweaters, and underwear is impressive and we're excited to be able to expand what we stock from them.

We have fresh runs of their loopwheeled t-shirts and underwear along with two special releases. 

We now have their new Sea Island cotton t-shirts, these are so special they come with serial numbered hologram tags. We believe Merz B. Schwanen have made the world’s first Sea Island cotton loopwheeled t-shirt. If you’re a fiber geek or need to enter the final level of the nicest and softest blank t-shirt you’ve ever seen, this is for you. These t-shirts are wild soft and are available now in white or black. 

Lastly we have a fresh run of their mulesing-free fine merino wool loopwheeled tees, available in black or natural. All these items are available now across all of our stores.

      Worn probably 10-12 times, barely any fades. For those who've been around these forums for a long time, they remember how awesome these jeans were when they first came out.
      Retail was $375 USD. Looking for $185 USD OBO.
      Best way to contact me is [email protected]
      Waist: 31.5"
      Inseam: 31.5"
      Thigh: 11"
      Hem: 7.5"





      One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean. 

      The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes.

      Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz. Hailing from Australia, the website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim.
      Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers.

      Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posting on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, discussing anything from travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing.

      This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks.

      IRON HEART 633s size 32 - imgur link photos taken by a window with natural light. 
       
      I've been wearing these for close to 2.5 months now. The waist has gotten a bit too big on me and I find that they fade too slowly. They're still more comfortable at 21oz. than most raw denim I've ever worn, though. 
       
      Whiskers are starting to break through, wallet fade is fairly clearly defined on the back left pocket, and while the comb wrinkles are fairly defined, there's almost no evo on the combs, knees, or thighs. These have so much life left in them that your wear will surely overshadow mine in the long run. 
       
      At 36" these are ready to be hemmed to your desires. I have not washed them since purchasing them. 
       
      Measurements (the [iron Heart](http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0) way):  
      Waist: 17.5" across  
      Front Rise: 10.5"  
      Rear Rise: 15.5"  
      Thigh: 12.5"
      Knee (13" down from crotch seam): 8.75"  
      Leg Opening/Hem: 7.6"
