Medium arrived today and to no one's surprise it's an amazing piece and I'll probably be wearing it to bed it's that comfortable already

@Giles in your personal experience, what top 3 fabrics/weights have been the most durable in Iron Heart jeans?  Not thinking about fades, but how resilient the jean has been to wear and tear.
Hmmmm, I tend to wear a pair of jeans for about a year more or less non-stop.  Then I move on to the next great thing...

If I had to make a stab at this, I'd go.

25oz
14oz
19oz
Interesting... The 14oz and 19oz stronger than the 21oz due to the tighter weave?

Looking for thoughts on treating the natural leather patch... Do or don’t?

I just used some Brooks Proofide on my new 526PJ’s leather patch... To keep it Brit as that’s where it was shipped from hahah...
And it smells beautifully citrusy!

I thought it was only the red tab (love the red stitched W btw, much better than the red tab!), good to know, and awesome that Haraki took the high road into freeing his designs!

Additionally was this iron flower thingy part of the original design or did you add it @giles? Looks great!

Awesome jacket @Giles!!! Gives me a peek into the future of what mine will eventually look like . Looks very relaxed and manageable... Was a bit afraid that the 21oz would always keep that heaviness and rigidness to some point but yours looks very soft with flow, drape and plenty of character.

Love the leather patch label btw... Perhaps even a bit more than the current one.

Not sure if you missed the second part about the jacket in the pictures... if the one gifted to you by Haraki 10 years ago in the Instagram picture and the one you’re wearing in the second picture sitting with Haraki is the same one... just curious . Thanks!

Awesome changes on the new website @alex... Looking forward to it!

And you’ve done an excellent job with your online store! Simple, easy to use, everything is where it needs to be and no gimmicky videos or stuff that slow the website down. Love the comparison feature and it works flawlessly!

A couple things... 😁

Read an interview with Haraki where he stated he is not concerned with fades whatsoever, just tries to make the strongest, best built and darkest denim possible.
Additionally he mentioned he does not really follow or is concerned with what the competition does, that he prefers not to know as to not be influenced with outside ideas (it went something along those lines)...

Whats your stand in the fades craze (companies designing just for fades, people sleeping in their jeans and other extremes)?
And of course your competitors, do you do any market research or sample their products? And I’ll add, if you don’t mind saying of course, who if any do you admire/like what they’re doing?


One las thing... Is this the same jacket in both photos? Looks great BTW!

Thanks for the great answers guys!

Quick question for you that have had this jacket for a bit.

Have you experienced stretch or shrinkage after washing, and if so about how much? Does it stretch on length from using the hand warmer pockets?

Thanks!

I think my response may disappoint and, if it does I'm sorry.

The simple answer is nothing.  And I do not say that out of any sense of arrogance, because boy have I made a lot of mistakes and there are plenty of things that I could have done better.  But one of my fundamental beliefs is that everything you do, every choice you make leads you to be the person you are and the place you are.

I'm happy where I am, I have a lovely loving family, I have great friends all over the world, I have a successful business and I enjoy what I do and who I am.

In reality, everything I have done in life has led me to where I am.  Had I done almost anything differently, then I would most likely now be in a different place.  It may have been a better place, it may have been a worse place, but it would certainly be a different place. But, I don't waste my time on what-ifs.

A friend of mine went fishing on his own recently, he caught a fish of a lifetime.  He phoned me up to tell me and say how much he wished I hade been with him.  I told him I was glad that I had not been, because had we gone together there is zero chance that his lure would have been in the right place at the right time and he would not have caught that fish.

I don't believe in fate, but I do believe that whatever you do, wrong or right dictates the rest of your life.

Very nice. Oh to wear shorts in December. Outside a gym.
Thanks! The benefits of living in Florida I guess, but the flip side is we only get to wear nice jackets 5 days a year haha
