Anybody care to comment on the feel/breathability of this shirt?

I’ve got the IHSH-07 which is also 12oz so interested in hearing how this compares. To me that shirt has a very dense weave (I’ve dubbed it “the windbreaker”).

Weight only tells part of the story when it comes to how items feel when worn: my UHFs are also 12oz but are feel like the comfiest of sweaters, the 10oz chambray is comfortable even on warm days. Is this shirt similar to the 07 when worn, or a very different beast entirely?
TIA

Awesome, can’t wait to see them!

I saw that the 177 is being replaced by a similar CPO using a 19oz LHT. Is it the plan to likewise replace the 178 with an overdyed version of this new 19oz LHT, or will it be restocked as is? TIA

@GC , the shirt looks excellent on you mate, I really like your outfit and I’m not ashamed to say I might emulate it! I’m glad you’re enjoying this one as much as me, it’s all I really want to wear right now.
This is my 4th IH shirt. I bloody love them all, but I think this one takes the top spot. And you’re absolutely right about this forum, it’s excellent and you get such helpful responses from the guys here.

I genuinely appreciate the detailed response from you guys. Let’s face it - whilst we devotees, new and old, would all agree it’s worth every penny, IH gear by most people’s standards is expensive stuff! For enthusiasts newer to the brand (like myself) it can be quite daunting dropping such amounts on a single item. This forum and the helpful members really makes the process not only easier, but also informative and fun. Thanks a lot guys.

There seems to a skirting effect going on around the waist noticeable from the frontal photo.  The other dimensions look pretty good.

There is very little difference between the M and L.  I would suggest going down to an M since the L is nowhere near tight.  This will hopefully reduce the triangle shape.

Thanks mate, appreciate the response. Ive just realised that in my haste to try the shirt on I didn’t actually fasten the bottom snap :D which has exaggerated the skirting you’re mention. Stupid me!

I’ve taken another pic which probably gives a better impression of the fit than my original..

It looks good. Difficult to say if the M would be even better though. The length of the sleeve looks right, and I’m not sure you could afford to loose more there. The body length and shoulders are fine, although you could go down there, but the chest looks fitted.

Nice one, I think I’ll stick with the Large. Product page says no shrinkage but would rather not go smaller and come unstuck when washing. At least this way there’s a bit of wiggle room without looking like a sack!

Never really considered this shirt, but thanks to an incredibly generous loyalty discount (thanks IH crew!) thought I’d pick one up on a whim. So glad I did, once I’d seen it in person and tried it on I think this may be my favourite IH shirt yet! It’s somehow rigid and soft at once.

I went for a large, but wondered if I should’ve gone for medium. It feels incredibly comfortable but wonder if a slimmer fit might be more flattering... opinions? I’m 6”1’ and ~85kg. Cheers.

Both your posts make me very pleased I grabbed these jeans. I’ve been wearing mine constantly for the last couple of weeks and there’s already this nice hint of high-contrast blue showing in some areas. The rise also causes lots of creasing around the upper thighs. I can just tell the whiskers will look amazing a year from now.
@tvenuto your photos look like they’re fading almost to a kind of silvery grey. I hope this is a realistic representation and I’m looking forward for mine to evolve like yours.

I um’ed and ah’ed over the Large I bought in this shirt, but the fit is just not right and I should’ve gone for the XL, which are unfortunately sold out now. If it had fit, this may have been my favourite IH shirt that I own, and I spent ages trying to convince myself it fit. If mine fitted any near as well as @Wlemon ‘s i would have been very happy indeed. Will try to get an XL from R&H.

Cheers mate! The 888 cut is easily my favourite fitting pair of jeans I’ve ever owned. Every dimension feels like it strikes a great balance, and looks neither too slim nor too loose. I’m eyeing other iterations of the 888 for the future. The fabric is a winner too: nice and crispy, pretty dense indigo with just a little bit of the brown weft showing through. It stretched out nicely in the waist, they are a very comfortable pair of jeans indeed. Can’t believe I was almost gonna send them back!

Got a large. Risky as it might be slightly on the trim side. Hope it works out. If it does, I’ll have to hide it for a few months or my wife might just kill me. It’ll have to be my guilty secret.

Now for a self-imposed Iron Heart ban for six months while my bank account recovers. :(
