Chup Socks / CHUP-TS1 - "Life Long" Socks with Cordura®
« on: Yesterday at 01:29:27 pm »
CHUP-TS1 - "Life Long" Socks with Cordura®

Chup will boast that their "Life Long" socks might possibly be the last socks you buy.  Knitted with Invista's highly durable material, Cordura®, which is 7 times as strong as normal yarn and gives amazing durability of 6 to 10 times that of ordinary cotton socks (scientifically tested and verified). These socks include Cordura yarn from top to bottom, not just in the heel, toe and sole (the minimum for socks to be able to use the Cordura name).

Subject to abrasion testing for wear, to pass they must survive 500 times - Chup's "Life Long" socks clear the abrasion test more than 30,000 times.  So they may not be indestructible, but they do wear extremely well (as Giles, their biggest fan, will testify).

USD36

Size Medium (UK 6-9.5)

5 Colours:  Black, Blue, Indigo, Navy and Olive

So folks, once again dear Haraki san is coming over to Europe, with Tom and Kenta, for Selvedge Run and other activities, so naturally we have persuaded him to spend a couple of days at IHUKHQ in Gosport, which means… it’s time for an Iron Heart get-together!

IF YOU CAN JOIN US, PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FILL IN THE FORM!

Very rough plans are:

Friday 6th July – evening meet up for food (fish’n’chips is traditionally eaten on a Friday) and drinks – timings and venue to be confirmed.

Saturday 7th July – gathering at IHUKHQ in Cooperage Green, Gosport, kicking off probably around 3pm, with yakitori barbecue and plenty of liquid refreshment.

I’m not holding any hotel rooms, we are not blessed with much choice of accommodation in or near Gosport, so if you’re able to come and stay a night or two we suggest you book as soon as possible.  Some suggestions are:

Premier Inn Gosport https://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/hampshire/gosport/gosport.html
Old Lodge Hotel https://www.facebook.com/Oldlodgehotel/
Anglesey Hotel http://www.angleseyhotel.co.uk

There are quite a few rooms available via Airbnb and some hotels close to the ferry just across the harbour in Portsmouth (ferry runs till midnight).

There are lots of things to do and see in the local area, including:

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard http://www.historicdockyard.co.uk/
Isle of Wight https://www.visitisleofwight.co.uk/, especially Queen Victoria’s holiday home Osborne House http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/osborne/

We’ll add more suggestions, and I’m sure some of our regular visitors can recommend (or otherwise) places to visit and/or stay!

Giles and I arrived this morning to a very wet and windy Tokyo.  We found our AirBnB apartment (which is tiny but double the size of the hotel room we stayed in last time, and half the cost) so we're cosy and comfy.  After a little bit of catch-up sleep, our first mission was to visit a scuba dive store to seek out Gull diving fins.  The place we found in Shinkjuku was an Alladin's Cave of goodies! New bright blue his'n'her bright blue fins were duly copped!

It wasn't difficult to identify the staff, in their colourful "uniforms"!

The Archives / A Farewell to Winchy
« on: December 19, 2017, 01:24:27 pm »
As some of you already know, Winchy (Matt) has moved back to his home town of Westgate-on-Sea in Kent, and leaves us officially at the end of this week, although he’ll probably head home to the family tomorrow.

Back in April 2013, Giles and I realized we were struggling, working 7 days a week and, whilst possibly heading for nervous/physical breakdowns, we probably were not serving our customers as well as they deserved!  Taking on our first employee was a huge step.  Matt is my nephew and had always taken a keen interest in Iron Heart, from the start he really “got” what we were doing.  Matt has a degree in Audio Engineering, but he had a lot of experience from his younger days in menswear retail, so with his interest in Iron Heart and knowledge of customer care and stockroom management he was a great fit.  Luckily for us, he was ready for a change of scenery and joined us full-time at the beginning of July 2013.

Since then, lots has happened!  The very day Matt and his girlfriend Mariana moved to Gosport they discovered she was pregnant, and their son Alex arrived in February 2014.  In May 2014 they married and December 2015 saw the arrival of their daughter Rosie.

For some while now Matt and Mariana have planned to move back to Westgate, a lovely seaside town where most of the family live, including Matt’s mum, dad, brother, grandmother, plus many of his friends from school and college days who he remains very close to.   They bought a house, which coincidentally and very conveniently is right next door to his brother and family, and finally moved in a couple of weeks ago.

Winchy will be sadly missed, he’s been a part of the Stubborn Crew for nearly five years, has helped us grow and has supported us through thick and thin.  His plan is to go back into audio production, but I will let him say more about that when the time comes.  He’ll always be part of the Iron Heart family, I know he has many friends out there who will miss him, and we’ll make sure he’s back here in Gosport for all our future IH events.

Please join me in saying a huge thank you to Matt, and wishing him success and happiness in his new home and all his future endeavours.
