what are the measurements on that shirt?

I've seen them but the sleeve length might be a problem...

I was about to order a custom shirt from Sam but was too slow on the payment unfortunately, so I haven't ordered a shirt from him yet but definitely will once I have the funds again. He is really capable and easy to deal with, gets in nice fabrics and quick to respond. Also I was one of the runner ups for the new blog name which (I thought) was pretty cool...

I do have a Post O'Alls work shirt with short sleeves, it's a little bit on the big side for me, it's marked a L but it's (really) big for an L. I do still really like it though, the quality is really nice, all the stitching is perfect throughout the shirt and the quality really shows, right through to the bartacked areas of strain.

I will try and take some pics and post them up. Any parts you want to see in particular detail? ;)

Picked up this Rag & Bone chambray off eBay. Very nice detailing, selvedge side gussets, chinstrap, very long arms. Denim was fairly raw, photos are taken after about 10 wears.

No soak, as I was afraid of it shrinking. Anybody venture an educated guess as to whether it's sanforized? Possibly Cone Denim? Either way, when I do wash, it'll be cold.

Usually wear it tucked, apart from that last picture.

Joy:

that's one nice shirt! If it's never been washed I'd watch it washing it as it doesn't look like it would fit you if it shrunk...

what size is it? Measurements?

^^Thanks. Yeah, that's why I've been weary of a wash/soak. It's marked as a large, but fits more like an XL.

Chest: 23" across

Sleeves: 29"

Length: 33"

Neck: 17"

I have a hard time fitting into vintage workshirts because they are usually way too boxy on me. My two EG workshirts (flannel and ringspun denim) and my MFSC utility shirt fit and serve me well.

Any one here have any experience with Iron Heart work shirts, and sizing. Thinking of pulling the pin on their hickory stripe, and their specs seem pretty on point, but just want to know if their looser or snugger than listed.

DOMO!

I really wish SC made more workshirts in XL. I'm an L in most USA brand clothing that I wear, which means SC L is not going to cut it.

welcome to the club!

i have the ihsh-07, 09 and 11 in xl

check here on how they fit me:

http://ringxring.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=293

i am 6'2 198lbs and usually wear 46" in the chest in my shirts.

also, check for alternative measurements here:

http://www.ironheart.co.uk/html/products.htm

the hickory (07) is plain beauty and a tad more fitted than the heavy chambray (09). currently my 09 is under all-day-every-day wear. as it is really comfy after you broke it in.

i will go as far as too say i might buy the 13 (heavy chambray without front yoke) as well as soon as it hits shops. i just love that piece!

just look-up some of the pics kiya posted of himself. you will easily find the 09 represented!

AH, so the 07 shirks after a wash? I would go for M, based on the posted measurements.

It's not supposed to shrink, according to Self Edge. I've got an M, unwashed/soaked yet, isn't too snug on me. Great shirt, you won't regret buying it!

Turntabloid, I think you need to sign my petition that they do another run of the 14oz. denim shirt, including a size XL.

This one:

I've been looking for that kind of shirt forever... Only other thing close is the Lee Riders shirt that they apparently no longer make. Seriously though, it may not hurt for you to send Iron Heart an e-mail too if you'd buy one... I'm sure that'd get you your fix!
