Official Iron Heart thread

Dec 16, 2011 @ 15:54
hi everyone. looking to get some ironhearts. need new heavier winter denim.

i measured my APC NS and went with their sizing chart. wondering how to size now because what i measured is not really close to any of their sizes....looking for probably just the 634s.
my measurements...
waist 34
front rise 10.25-10.5
thigh 11.5-12
knee 8
rear rise 13
inseam 33.5
hem 7

the thing i do not like about my APCs was the thigh area was too tight always and i never had full range of movement in my legs with them.

any help would be appreciated.

With those measurements, the 634 is def not the cut u want, you should look at the 666 fit. I dont think i know of any jean from IH that will give u a low 7 hem at a 34 waist

The fried is box; the box is fried.

I'm gonna go against the 666 fit, only because you mentioned thigh room. I have the 666 fit and the thigh area is pretty tight, but then again I went TTS rather than sizing up one.

Looking for -- Triumvir BDU jacket and NBHDxstussyxlevis jacket both in small

I went up a size for my 301s and the only problem i have with them is that they tend to loosen up really quick since i soaked them the 2nd day i bought them. So before i go out i frequently have to throw them in the dryer just to get that skinny fit. They look nice, fades are setting in... not sure when to wash since the last time was 24 weeks ago

Self Edge x Iron Heart = SEXIHXINDO16 - Forever Two Wheels

The new SEXIHXINDO16 jean is a collaboration between Self Edge and Iron Heart with a nod to our Indonesian clients. There is a strong denim and vintage loving community in Indonesia and we wanted to make a jean for them with one of their favorite brands. Everything from the fabric to the fit to the leather patch was made with the Indonesia community in mind.

We're proud to have a reach that far around the world and this is our way of recognizing their dedication to vintage style American garments.

The fabric is a heavyweight unsanforized denim which is exclusive to Self Edge and was developed for us for the SEXIH07 jean. It was the first time Iron Heart had done an unsanforized denim, it ages with extreme contrast and great character that rivals the best Japanese denim available today. With a silhouette that we designed to fit every body type we've decided to do these in a wide range of sizes due to it's extremely versatile fit.


Going to hopefully pick these up at the end of the week.

Went TTS



I feel like they need to shrink a little bit more still.
Dec 23, 2011 @ 02:14
fuck!!! that fit is dope. just like your STF's 501
Dec 23, 2011 @ 02:22
They're actually quite a bit slimmer but these jeans are fucking awesome. Never owned such a quality pair of jeans.
Dec 23, 2011 @ 02:38

went into selfedge yesterday and tried a couple pairs of jeans

can anyone who owns the 301s confirm with me if this is correct?
The 301s barely shrinks at all (due to it being a sanforized denim)
it does NOT need an initial soak

i know its supposed to stretch a lot in the waist, it i tried it on and it fit me perfectly
how much does it stretch by if you have a perfect fit?

is the leg opening big enough to wear clarks desert boots?
ABOUT what should i hem to? (6 ft 168 lbs, size 33 in question)
i wear a size 33 x 32 in levis 511 for reference
Jan 06, 2012 @ 23:57
Get the size that fits u perfectly, if u wear a belt the waist isnt gonna stretch as much since the belt is stopping that. How do you have a 32 inseam at 6ft tall??? And since ur able to buy at self edge in person you could just ask the ppl working there, they would be the best to ask.
edit: ye no need to soak

The fried is box; the box is fried.

^ many thanks mate!

one last question:
it says in the descripton for the 301s that the outer seam selvedge is invisible
i forgot to check what that looked like, can anyone quickly snap a close-up picture of the cuff
so I can see?
cheers

301s don't have selvedge. It is made of selvedge denim but the seam has no visible selvedge.

Feb 10, 2012 @ 07:52
i went into SE today and tried on some 301s. i sized down 1 cuz they said itd stretch an inch and a half in the waist, and 3/4 in the thigh...and if thats true...itd be perfect. can anyone verify? i can button it all the way...but the top is pretty tight on me. and how long do they take to fade with fairly regular wear...5-7 days a week.

Self Edge x Iron Heart x Leather Soul x Alden = SEXIHXLSXA13

For the first time we've come together with another retail store to collaborate on a product. We've come together with Leather Soul to design a set of jeans and boots from two of our favorite brands which compliment each other in both design and fit.
We've done a pair of jeans from Iron Heart using a new denim designed for this project and a pair of boots from Alden available in two colors.

The Iron Heart jeans are a classic 5-pocket jean with a medium rise and a straight leg with a slight taper that's flattering above the knee all the way up the back, also there's very little taper so the jean looks great with boots. The jean is completely stitched together with dark indigo thread, so while being a 5-pocket jean made of an indigo denim it's easily dressed up because of the lack of contrast stitching. For the jean we had Iron Heart produce us the darkest denim they've made that's still indigo (blue) colored in a new 23oz weight, the denim is sanforized and therefore even due to it's heavy weight, it's still comfortable.
This jean looks and feels amazing in person, Iron Heart nailed every aspect of the jean that we had requested to have made for us. The denim warp threads are so saturated with indigo dye that it's looking like a jean that will look amazing with some wear due to how the fabric will age over time.

The boots are designed to be versatile in both comfort and utility but also are able to be dressed up or down easily due to the detail, leather, and sole choice.
The Alden boot has a "faux" cap toe, a style Leather Soul has named the "conservation boot." This style was made in the 1940's when leather was scarce due to rationing and wartime shortages. Instead of a traditional cap toe, this "faux" cap toe style was used to give the look of a cap toe without using extra leather and the stitching is done by hand.
The boot is made on Alden's Trubalance last, has a tan Goodyear rubber wedge sole, and is available in black regina calf leather or Horween natural Chromexcel.
