It’s a W that stands for Works Inc, the iron heart parent company. Or it can be an M for Motorcycle if you like..

Both make sense.  Thanks for clarifying.

I was watching a product review by James Dant and he referred to the iconic red stitching as an “E”. I’ve always thought of it as a rotated “W” has homage to Triple Works. What’s the history and meaning of this logo?


I’m back in Tulsa for what should be the last time before I sell a home. I’n staying with a friend who says he’ll only go to breakfast on the condition I ride his motorcycle - I say, pass me the keys.



Mine arrived today and it’s a beautiful jacket! Sized up to an XL (normally a L in shirts) but worried it may be a touch large.

Has anyone managed to get any shrinkage out of this?

14 or 21, def not 19.

I forgot that SelfEdge has a 22oz with pockets.  How does this compare weave-wise to the 14, 19, and 21?

@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.


I want to purchase a denim Type III with pockets.  I also live in a warmer environment (Central Texas) and would like to opportunity to wear it not just when it's super cold.  I currently don't have issues wearing 21 or 25 oz denim on my legs but also know that our cores are more sensitive to heat transfer.

Based on the above response of durability and knowing the that tightness of the weave plays a part in how breathable/warm a fabric is vs just pure weight, which Type III would you recommend?

14, 19L, or 21?

what belt/buckle is this. It’s awesome!

@GardenState looks like Pigeon Tree Crafting.

Didn't this use to be called IH-526L-V2?  Did the V2 drop with the latest run?

What about, https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=5004.0

Curious minds.....

Yeah, very nice! Do you remember how many washes, @kiecker?

@Lowlander Initial soak. Garden hose quick rinse when a fire extinguisher discharged. And now the first hot wash.

Approximately 8-9 months.




I figured out the cause after flipping them inside out before washing.


Anyone else get wear like this or know the cause?

Yes indeed. I have had something like that develop on a few pairs.

Your hole is sat on a crease and I suspect it has worn on the crotch seam.

Very plausible.  Thanks @neph93.  Interestingly enough I swapped my desk to a standing one a couple months back.  Could had been interesting to see how the development changed with that modification.  Oh well.  I'll keep an eye on it so I don't get too much extra cooling.

Maybe cause it never been soak or wash...

I did the initial soak when I first got them and then did another soak after a fire extinguisher went off on them.  They are about ready for another wash/soak.

I think I’m around 200 days in and noticed an odd wear that I really don’t know how it formed. Anyone else get wear like this or know the cause?

This really should make it back into production. Nothing else like it.
