Favourite Items: IHJ-54
The IHJ-54 was an instant favorite for me. I have searched for years for a jacket to be my single go to leather piece and could be mixed with jeans and a hoodie or chinos and a button up. This beast of a jacket has the perfect fit, is built like a tank, and looks absolutely flawless with any kit I throw at it. The horsehide is on a level of its own and I hope to pass this “Grail” item on to my son when its time with me is over.
The IH-634-XHS was my very first purchase from IH and was the springboard that launched me into the IH world. The 25oz denim has ruined me for all other weights as it is now the gold standard for me when I consider any denim bottoms. The cut is perfect for a guy like me who prefers a little room in the fit and a hem that sits comfortably over my boots. The construction is on par with IH’s signature over-engineered starting point, the denim is ruggedly brilliant, and these are by far the best bottoms I own.

Favourite Items: IH-6526J (beige)
I don't think any other brand has the power to bring the words "corduroy" and "cool" together like Iron Heart did with these jackets! Who else would think to weave corduroy so thick that you can get elbow honeycombss?!?!?
*Bonus cool points due to the fact that you just don't see many of these in the wild.
Hands down, the most awesome IH fabric ever made! I came to Iron Heart because of one thing: "heavyweight"... These pants do what my 666XHS do, with 100x more comfort from day one. All while making cargo pockets look cool.

Favourite Item: IHSH-33
This is not an easy call to make. Special shout out to IH-634S — my gateway to the Iron Heart Lifestyle. After 3 months of logically and emotionally trying to reach a single favourite, I think I've made it. For now, at least.
IHSH-33 is my second skin. As soon as I'm home from work for 9+ months of the year, it's on. A whole year after purchase of near daily wear and it's just starting to show it's true character. There is no rotation here, it is The One. I know IHSH-33 is true quality. Only well made things endure, perfectly made items, like IHSH-33 become an extension of self.
The weighting of the 33 makes it possible to wear nearly year round down here. Overcoat in Spring/Summer, and done up in Fall/Winter. Due to being all-seasons different parts of it have evolved differently. And it's these textures and the range of differences between them that seals the IHSH-33 as my favourite rugged wear.
