Just found it myself. So not a dream but still sleep deprived confusion. Thanks Mr. Pfaff!

I am, at least I think so, in the Target Group for IHR, but in my Books there is not much missing in the Current Lineup of IH. The Brands that I buy/wear in Addition to IH are more out there when it comes to Prints, Fabrics and Patterns e.g. Neighborhood and WTAPS, is that the IHR direction ?

I'll take a generous cut 21oz indigo (and black) mesh back trucker hat with veg tanned strap and Iron Heart Ignition (jeans sized leather patch on front). The sweat band inside should be made with the soft white warp side of the 21oz denim facing out for maximum comfort. The hat should have a 23.5" median circumference (a lot of us Americans have huge heads, that's smaller than my hat size). 6.5" deep from top button to bottom of sweat band. Large brim 9" across and 3.5" deep. See diagram.

Key features:

-21oz denim construction
-cool mesh back
-adujustable leather strap embossed with Iron Heart
-veg tanned leather Iron Heart USA patch
-brass button on top and hardware
-generous cut
-comfortable 21 oz denim sweat band (I hate the polyester ones in regular trucker hats).

Very rough sketches:

Patch concept:

I'll have to work out the positive and negative space for the embossing of the patch. But it would have a spark plug, stars and stripes, and maybe lightning bolts, with a block text Iron Heart and your fancy Ignition script at the bottom. I will draw vector art for the patch if you like the idea.

I have a couple more ideas I need to draw and flesh out for other items...

Yeah I think it would be a cool idea. Even if you don't like the patch they could put any jeans patch on the front. 👌

I believe it’s this vest (from the IGNITION line?)

LOVE this !

@Alex , would this be OD, SBG, or SB ? My preference would be OD. Either way, I'll certainly be waiting for it to go live. #instacop

The other thing I wanted to suggest is a new pair of jeans for truckers and people who have to sit for long periods of time. Like me. I have fantasized about these jeans for a long time now. So hopefully you will think they are feasible. I didn't think felled seams would be possible until I saw the 25oz vest...

Introducing:

Iron Heart 25oz XHS 18 Wheeler jeans!


Concept for patch:

"18 WHEELER.jpg"

Key features:

"18wheeler_1.jpg"
"18wheeler_2.jpg"

25oz XHS selvedge denim in the ever popular 888 cut!
Zipper fly for easy pit stops!
Felled seams (double stitched for awesome roping) featuring a single selvedge detail on the outseam.
Slash pockets, deep and oversized to facilitate easy access while driving
Lightweight over sized coin pocket sewn into pocket bag
Oversized back pockets (same size as 805 overalls pockets) with blue stealth arcs for comfort sitting on those big wallets

And... the best part!!

A one piece leg/seat with a single seam running up the middle (so that heavy intersection of seams is not there). Just say no to yokes!
"no!.jpg"

The inside part of the outseam can be serged but the top piece should have the selvedge edge intact (back facing out).

Sorry for the crap Photoshop job. I haven't used it in close to 15 years.

Oh shit I forgot to add that these should be available in up to size 44 for those husky truckers.

Oh man, I'd be so happy if you made those jeans! I fantasize about winning the lottery and buying an entire run of those at least once a day.  :)

Skull rider or some sort of animal or something tough and I would be sold.
