Iron Heart Jeans

Recommended Posts

I don't have samurais, but from looking around you can see they will fade a lot faster (probably even the 21oz). If you care about quick fading etc go with samurai. If you want a pair of jeans that are tough as hell but soft, suprisingly breathable for 21oz, and totally fucking awesome that you can spend many years loving...get the IH's :)

i have sams and IHs and i like my sams a lot more. i prefer the cut on my sams much more than the IHs. i have S0500xx and 634S.

but it does feel like you can do anything in your IHs and they will be alright.

IHs are also really plain and simple, absolutely nothing fancy about them, other than the denim itself.

I really wish Guy H would post an update, he's been wearing his for over a year with no wash. I hope he washes them and posts pics although I remember him saying he was worried about the inseam because it was just right with no wash...

I've got a few 34x36 in stock, for those of you whom a 34" leg just doesn't do it.

Drop me a mail at [email protected] if interested

Giles is always stealing away my thunder in the Iron Heart threads. Nice jeans, though. I hope mine come out subtle like yours.

Just ordered this guy from Rebirth, I can't wait!!! I picked up my first pair of IH's from Kiya's crew this weekend and am totally hooked.

Hi guys. Sorry not been on here much. My IH's have been tucked away since the warmer weather came (Saying that it's terrible in England the past month). I'll try do some new pics over the next few days. To be honest my IH's have been on rotation with various other pairs of jeans. They are showing wear but how well it will show in photos I couldn't say.

As mentioned I really don't want to wash them due to the leg length being perfect now. I wish Giles had the 36's when I got mine.

Anyone tried Tanning the leather patch on 634s? I am thinking of doing that on mine. Dunno if it will work out well. What do you guys think?

I'd say go for it if its a sunny day. If its a bit overcast it will take a good couple of days to see any change. Just give it a lick of mink oil after you finish tanning.

You've never washed/soaked? If you have already soaked them, just wash them and pull the length back when wet. Thats what I do. And I do believe that this 'pulling thingie' reduces knee bulging as well.

belated, but these are some of the hardest worn iron hearts i've ever seen. nice fades.

iron heart, i guess it looks like it's a little difficult to get honeycombs on these?

because of the heavier weight, the fabric probably doesn't crease as much, hence "fuzzy" fades...

sorry for bumping up this old thread

just kind of curious do these stretch like APC jeans??

i'm thinking of getting the black non-selvedge jeans

and just wondering if i should size down or get my actual waist size

^^ nothing stretches like APC, and depends what look your going for keeping in mind the cut is relatively straight. Ive heard that Iron Hearts run small so get actual measurements

IH sizing varies from model to model. Even 634 selvage vs nonselvage fits differently. Look on selfedge site for measurements.

I've found the 21oz denim stretches minimally, about an inch or less on my size 31. some people have been able to stretch them out far more though.

I got my IH 634S in the mail today and the denim is awesome.They are very thick but really soft and not cardboard like.Excellent quality. I got a size 32, and they fit perfect in the waist,but I think they may be to long.I am 5'9 and 165lbs.So i have a few questions.

-how should I soak them?

-do you think they should be hemmed?

-How is the fit overall-presoak

(All pics are worn without soak)

they're pre-soaked at the factory so there is no value in doing another one. i did a 40 degree wash before hemming to be sure but made little difference. with hard washing they say the jeans will shrink about a half inch at most. mine were a 33 and are now a 34 but i don't think they'll stretch any more than that

I wouldn't bother hemming them, but you could do with a small turn up.
