Guys help me understand what so special about this jacket . Trying to understand does it has thicker heavy material ?

I'm kinda with you on this, not particularly a huge fan of corduroy myself but they do look nice.

Yeah, but not everything is for everyone. There have been plenty of pieces that people seemed to be going crazy for that weren’t my thing. Different strokes for different folks...

Agree. Part of the appeal with the ihj-69, for me at least, is that it's a modified type III and the corduroy gives it a retro feel. I also think it compliments denim very well and will be a nice alternative to the denim on denim look

[/quote]Me neither, but thought this was was modified from traditional for a longer cut--maybe just the addition of side pockets?
[/quote]

Modified only means one inch of extra length (and pockets), as far as I know. Vintage trucker jackets in my size, usually a M or 38, almost always have a length between 21 and 23 inches. Iron Heart’s type IIIs seem pretty true to this. Adding one inch to that type of cut ain’t much. What I think of as short modern jackets in my wardrobe typically have a length of about 25”.

It'll be interesting to compare the length of the ihj-69 to my SExIH od modified type III, which I think is actually 1.5" longer than a standard type III. I just know that my SExIH type III sits below my belt which is how I prefer it.

The first post says it’s a modified IH-6526J - go look at the measurements of that jacket, seems a little longer in length already than the type III

When we get them here, we'll measure them and then we will all know...

This is a selling point for me, too many jackets just do not have space for a mobile phone, something most of us carry most of the time.
Most external pockets are too short so that it falls out when you bend down, happens a lot with my UHF's.
Please feel free to move to random rants  :)
