This is UHR denim. 21oz raw, 23oz washed. IH did a run or 2 or 888's in UHR denim but with a different patch. They also had version w/ yellow arcs and no arcs. The only difference on the NT (Nama Tako) is the patch and stealth arcs. There might be some 888-UHR left, haven't looked in a while. UHR has been discontinued. The NT's and the 888-UHR were made with the last stock they had of a 2nd run of UHR, if I understand correctly. 

Cheers for the info Mate. I'll try my luck :D

I got the 23 ounce overdyed type 3 that self edge made this year. This denim is already so interesting and I can already see blue peaking through. Initially I didn’t think I would like the overdyed denim but for a jacket it’s really badass how it looks with a pair of indigo jeans. Really glad I picked it up. It honestly feels like a leather jacket between the heavyweight denim and the overdye :)

I was looking at their upcoming collection, and there's not a lot of indigo in their tops. They have a lovely selection of short & long sleeve knits, in a variety of colors, but no indigo...

Wow, that thing is a legend in the making! Did you remove the hood? The collar looks a bit floppier than I would expect.

no. there wasn't any hood on this model as opposed to the current m65 they produced. this pair has also been washes plenty of times so they're truely worn in. if you look at the currenty range, i think only some models have the hood. this will be similar to the iron heart OD 14oz denim i believe. will ask giles and haraki when i see them in bkk at the end of the week.

That jacket looks amazing. Thanks for posting! Way badass; I can't wait to see it in a couple of years.

I think the collar looks much better when it's a bit floppy, i.e., without the hood. Otherwise it stands up and it feels & looks very different. In any case, that's a lovely jacket you developed. It's making me reconsider some of their denim outerwear.

it's definitely soft when i have it down but it's also sturdy enough to put it up like eric cantona when it gets a little chilly. i recently bought another 'm65' style windproof/ waterproof jacket from this season's collection.. can't wait to put that to use..

hi folks, has anyone ever had luck shrinking iron heart flannels with hot washing/drying? i want one pretty bad but probably can’t make a small not look way too long on me without having it hemmed.

If you hot soak/wash one and then run it through the dryer till it's completely dry you'll get almost a full inch of shrinkage in the length.  Or you can always just get it hemmed by a tailor, it's an easy job and looks fine as long as you don't take off more than 2" or so.

Haven't been on here all that much for a while but damn, picked up some 633s-142 yesterday, and wow, the denim is crazy. So smooth and soft.

That's a great pair of jeans. Depending on how that run is cut, the 633 can have just the right amount or sometimes too much taper, IMO. I could be wrong, but I fairly certain that 14oz denim is a lighter version of their 18oz denim, which is woven at the same mill as Full Count's and is intended to be a repro denim.

I have always been a skinny fit guy being that I am 6'3" and ~180lbs but I'm more in the 200lb range now and getting older, I need a nice medium rise and more of an overall taper with some leg room. I was at SELA yesterday and tried on a ton of jeans. I have owned SG2109, 301s-14, Imperial SExI08/14, SE05BSP etc and they are all too skinny for me now and can't deal with the low rise. After buying the Sugar Cane EDO-AI, I realized I needed to get some more jeans that were looser.  Went a 36 with the option to cold soak to gently shrink or hot soak if more shrinkage was needed. Try get a fit pick up today. They are more for me riding motorcycles too so left them un-hemmed.

Gents, (text copy/pasted f/ IH forum, so I plagiarized myself) 

I just copped this N1 BLK size XL f/ the outlet. Been looking for a proper winter coat for literally years. This should do nicely.

Opinions on fit? I have an IHxSE type III denim jacket and the blanket lined riders jacket both in XXL. I wear IH westerns in XL. In fit pics I have on an XL UHF under the N1. I think this is on the edge of being too large, but acceptable. I could have gone w/ and L, but wasn't available at the time. 

I live in the mountains of CO, in the Vail area. We definitely get cold temps here in the winter, but not as cold as where @neph93 is. I'll only be wearing this N1 when it's really cold and I'll have some type of heavy flannel or denim shirt underneath. I don't wear multiple layers like heavy sweaters or cardigans. Worst case scenario is I'd wear an extra insulated layer on those scarce occasions when it's a high of -10F.

Cheers!
