Wow, the XXLs sure went in a hurry. I wonder if I might be happy with a XXXL...

A little bit of 14oz indigo/black western lurve.....

Ooh, is there going to be a work shirt version of this one?

The khaki lining is a nice, subtle improvement over the green from last year's run. I enjoy this jacket quite a bit - I've received many compliments.

So I bought this shirt in my usually dependable XXL and the chest measurements looked reasonable if a tad bit snug, but I find that it's pulling quite a bit in the chest now that I've tried it on. I like the way it drapes otherwise and I'm unsure if I should try for a size up or just return it. Thoughts?

As someone who tub washes because they have a terrible washing machine, the water is certainly blue afterward. I'm not sure how else one could explain that. That said, I think losing indigo in the wash is a good thing. It's what helps fades evolve. Going extended extended periods without washing is bad for fades, bad for the fabric itself.

Sex number, weed number. Hilarity.

I'd love a black denim work shirt. I was waiting on an IHSH-95 restock and was quite disappointed when it went extinct.

The one defining characteristic of the SE 23oz would be the tightness of its weave. The non-overdyed fabric looks like a double indigo because the tightness makes the weft pretty much invisible. I imagine the overdyeing process only tightened it up further, making this a very warm jacket indeed.

That's essentially what Self Edge's 633 is and it definitely works better for me.

Yup, this is shaping up to be one of my favorite IH fabrics. I liked my 666 so much I ended up getting a pair of these when they hit the outlet even though tapered cuts usually aren't my thing. I have to wonder why it didn't find much traction.

I have a number of work shirts and a number of UHFs, but this will be my first UHF work shirt. Excited for this one.

Now that corduroy Type IIIs are back after a long hiatus, how about making an indigo model? The indigo cord shirts were quite nice looking and I would most definitely be into a jacket.

Pulled the trigger on it too, even though I like workshirts better.

In my opinion, this fabric cries out for a workshirt. I hope it finds another incarnation.


I noticed a co-worker with a very familiar looking shirt, yet it wasn't an Iron Heart. Apparently Gustin sourced a fabric from Japan that was very clearly inspired by the 137, but it didn't have quite the same depth and vibrancy. Anyone else seen IH get ripped off like this?

Any chance that these could see another run? It doesn't seem like the last batch sold poorly except for the glut of XXXLs. I'd definitely be interested if it would be the long body type as originally intended.
