I came to the forum after a less than successful first purchase of IH jeans from SENY. The previous year I'd become interested in sustainable clothing via a Kickstarter project (the otherwise uninteresting Flint & Tinder brand) which in turn led me to Hiut Denim (I'm originally from Wales so that peaked my interest as well), which then led me to the world of selvedge denim. Inevitably IH came up after many hours of immersion in Heddels and Denimhunters websites. The whole IH aesthetic appealed for various reasons (not least the "Go heavy or go home" aspect). So on a trip to NYC I planned to visit BiG and SENY to peruse, but with IH as firm favourites for my first "serious" purchase of Japanese denim by a Japanese brand. It didn't go that well as you can read here: (more here: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=10380.msg503746#msg503746 ).

Despite that semi cock up, I fell in love with the 21oz and construction of IH, and was determined to do a better job with my second pair. So browsing the forum for product specific info on stretch, shrinkage and fit became a daily activity. I signed up and started doing all the classic noob things like tagging @Giles and @Madame Buttonfly  in endless posts (oops, I did it again  ;D ) , placing them in the wrong threads or in unnecessary threads I'd started myself. So generally presenting like a clueless first timer :D While I realise now that I probably seemed like a pest, this is pretty much what all noobs do, and everyone (forums members, mods and the IHUK crew) was very patient and helpful. This was, and still is a very noob friendly place, full of helpful folks.

So I ended up buying the 555-01 and of course a shirt, the now extinct IHSH-85. The shirt had some potential for shrinkage so I got my geek on and documented the process and my first big post here was a write up of this. It garnered lots of positive feedback and I was hooked, both on the clothing, brand and the forum. From then on I got to know the forum and its members and content. From keeping up with new releases, to hours of research, to just hanging out and messing around about, or browsing WAYWT for inspiration; the forum has become an indispensable part of my IH experience.

Just like any social arena, there are occasionally misunderstandings or arguments, and very rarely some bad behaviour, but 99% of the time it's just a very positive, friendly community where people enjoy helping each other, shooting the shit and comparing notes. People I've never met have done me incredible favours out of the goodness of their hearts ( @mikebarhoot is the man http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=9611.msg481070#msg481070  :D ), hooked me up with great stuff like Belgian beer glasses and bottles I can't get at home ( @Seul , @Aetas ), and I've bought and sold gear in a thriving marketplace that has been entirely hassle free.

So if you're a noob reading this and wondering what it's all about, whether you can ask a silly question, or make a fruity comment, or you're just intimidated by the amount of shit @Megatron1505 gets for being ginger, don't worry. Just dive in  ;)
