My 9301 superblack jeans got soft about year 2. But I also washed them in the machine a fair amount.

She's definitely a cruel mistress! But @sabergirl provides hope.

I think I might have to start sleeping in it haha.

Ha! When I hear two years to break a pair of jeans in, my first thought is there's no hope for a jacket. I actually quite like how mine feels on, it's stiff but has conformed to my body to an extent  :)

This jacket is by and far away my favorite from IH to date. It’s an angry piece of gear. I have it the dreaded soak, wear until dry self loathing treatment and now it fits like an armored denim exoskeleton. "33086C51-032E-4D66-B0EE-B733D1AA421F.jpeg"
Hey ton312 - what are your experience with the jacket pre- and post soak?
 I just bought it and are curious

Anyone with first-hand experience know how the sizing on these compares to the 14oz version they carry at SE? I only have access to the 14oz to try on locally and based on the measurements it seems that one runs about a size small in the body by comparison, but what isn't clear is the width of the arms.

The 14oz I tried in S was too snug to comfortably button but fit nicely in the arms. The M in the 14oz was a good fit in the torso but the arms were far too wide for my liking.

I'd like to get one of these, and thinking S would be the way to go, but if the arms are baggy it would be a no-go for me.

That person may not exist, however do you know the lot number of the SE jacket? Chances are it is the IH-526j-142 or one of its variants. Find that out and providing they carry it I’m sure the guys in Gosport will be happy to measure arm width for you and compare.

According to SE it's IHJ-86. This is the jacket in question:

Seems it may be a SE exclusive?

You may be out of luck then. That looks like something SE have specced from Japan that IHUK don’t carry. In theory, it should have the same specs as the IH-526J-142ib but I can’t guarantee that.

That's my assumption as well, but there's an old saying about what happens when one assumes.

Maybe my best bet is to just try to get some are width measurements on the IH-9526PJ and go off that.

It is not an SE exclusive, we gave them a 6 month lead on it.  Then when we came to run it for the rest of the world, we had used up our stock of 14oz bb denim.  So rather than doing nothing for months on end, we made this:

https://www.ironheart.co.uk/jackets/ih-526j-142ib.html

That is likely to be similar size-wise to the bb version (but not having measured a bb yet, we can't be sure), so you could run a compare against that:

Yeah. Get the measurement from between the seams that form the arm opening, the half way down and again at the wrist. You can then compare it to other jackets you own and that fit how you like.

Excited to hear what you think @vaquero357.  Even by IH standards, this thing is a beast.
