Not a strange question, I would consider this shirt a bit stretchy.

I thought this was going to turn into the joke about the 4 Nuns, but 1 is missing.

The forth nun is holding the camera :D

Ha!  Didn't think it's purpose was to weight down the tapemeasure  :D

Many, many years ago, I received a tape measure as part of a loyalty scheme through Rapha, Imperial Works. The box and printed note inside really emphasised the brand and its focus on sizing. I think if IH made something like this they would be very popular given the 'lengths' (excuse the pun) you go to on showing us all how to measure our kit. Might even help reduce the number of returns. Figure most people have a tape, but a well made cloth one is something else. Since I've joined this wonderful forum, I for one have returned to using this piece of kit at least once a week. Think a IH version would be a very welcome product hidden into the accessory section.

Love the idea, I'm on board!  Coincidentally the tape measure I already have is blue like denim... but I'm sure Giles & Co. can think up something better!

GC: curious as to the thread die in the picture?  Was that included with the tape measure?

If Iron Heart made the perfect article of clothing for your profession, what would you have them make and in what material?

I'd ask for an Overdyed 18oz. denim short sleeve chef's coat.

How about you?

Maybe it's own thread could work @neph93

editing to include:
-pearl snaps (brass may get too hot)
-Left sleeve pockets for Pen, Sharpie, highlighter and Thermometer

I'm a CNC machinist and I'm comfortable working in a lose fitting pair of pants.  With external pockets so I can quickly and easily stuff things in them and pockets on the knees to put in cushioning.

Have dreamed of a pair of Iron Heart's in the same design, something tough and durable but at the same time showing evo with use...  black duck, maybe?  Alas, I think the flappy pockets and lose fit would probably go against the Iron Heart ethos.

What I wear now looks similar to this:

Anybody know the thickness of this wallet?  Both with and without 4-5 cards, if any difference at all?

From 2013 to 2019 I have been using the Silmfold wallet (https://www.slimfoldwallet.com) until Christmas 2019 in which I got a Mulberry wallet from the GF (hey, gotta keep the peace at home).  Though I've come to realise it's too thick for my needs, I also only carry 6 cards at the moment, so was hoping this Iron Heart wallet could replace the Slimfold at the same time being made of quality leather.

Haha, nicely done!  Shed the old skin to show the new.

I'm a fan of Iron Heart work shirt cuts, however I don't really like the pocket design, nor the general boxy lines.

Then came the IHSH-135 (US Navy Style 6.5oz Chambray Short-Sleeved Shirt) which is a work shirt cut but with western looks.

Wish more shirts were made with the navy style look.  A rerun of the indigo/indigo 12 oz shirt in the navy style look would be so rad.  Or another shirt in any kind of material in the work/western fusion style would be awesome.

What do I think you should make?

  A double indigo work shirt with contrast stitching.

Yeah, it's a nice shirt for summer.  I usually wear it with the sleeves rolled up.

SBG pea coat or M-65 would have definitely been a no-brainer for me

Yes please.  But how about a 14oz SBG, has that been discussed with Haraki?

Count me in for a duckie hoody

I've tried my hand on the XXL and then XL...  Sadly neither fit me well, a crying shame as I really wanted this shirt  ::)

An XL is on it's way back to Gosport soon.

... A $400 order from IH can cost me another $30-50 in import tax.

Is that it for Norway?  Or does VAT come on top of that?  For Denmark, as a rule of thumb I have to add 30% on top of the price of goods from outside the EU... which is another reason I worry about Brexit and the future of getting merc from IHUK.
