All measurements are specific to this product. The best way to determine the size you need is to find a similar item that fits you well, then measure the same way we do (see "How We Measure" tab) and compare with the measurements on the table below. Actual measurements for the same Iron Heart item/tag size can vary somewhat so if a specific dimension is important to you (for example arm length) please ask us to check this before we ship by adding a note to your order.

New 21/23oz UHR - Face

Loomstate (raw)

Right hand twill

White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

This denim weighs in at 21oz when it comes off the loom but after being soaked or washed it shrinks so the same quantity of material becomes heavier, approximately 23oz.  It is fairly slubby and after shrinking becomes very dense and super windproof.  Fades with great contrast.
