Had there been a restock of xl in natural on 14th April? Been waiting for these to come back in and checked regularly. Need a new belt and this is the one I want to go for.

Nope.  We have just initiated a large restock of loads.

Having said that, I could Frankenstein an XL IHB-06 into an XL IHB-07 for you easily.......

Buy an IHB-06 and put a note in the order that G will convert to IHB-07

The Natural Veg. Tan leather, 1.5" width and heavy Brass buckle put this belt on my want list months ago.  As a proud blue collar worker that gets dirty/nasty on the regular I couldn't wait to subject this thing to the worst I can throw at it.

After one week of wear initial impressions are good.  Measuring the thickness with a micrometer yielded an average of 4.2mm as advertised.  Pictured below for comparison is a Natural Veg. Tan belt from Tanner Goods, San Francisco. CA.  Made in the USA, measures 1.25" wide and clocks in at 4.5mm thick.  One can get very familiar with a belt after 700+ days of wear but you wouldnt guess that +0.3mm would be noticeable.  Nonetheless, I couldn't help but think this Ironheart belt felt a bit flimsy which is what led me to breaking out the micrometer.  For $200 coupled with the Ironheart brand I may have dove in a bit blindly but when compared to the Made In USA $100 belt I'm a bit let down.
