I see that the 526PJ is now one of the IH 21 Essentials.  It's superseded the 526J.  I was aware of the discussion concerning the future of the 526J,  but I only noticed today the change to the 21 IH Essentials list.  My next order will be from this list, so I've been pouring over it lately.

Bummer the 526J is discontinued but the PJ looks very nice as well, esp. the stealth pockets. Hoping for a restock of the missing sizes, too.

Hi! New to the forum.

How come this isn't getting the love it deserves?

This remains my favorite jacket even long after the hype has subsided. Don't think I've left the house without it once since it arrived. It's my first IH but I'm so in love with this jacket that it just might end up being my last. For a while at least, as I honestly can't imagine what else to get that could top it. :)

Right about a month old. Worn every single day. I apologize in advance for the rest of the "attire", it's the clothes I work in. That includes the jacket. It's why the hand warmers and the inside pockets are absolutely essential to me and the reason I went with this one instead of the 526J. Maybe, just maybe I would've gotten a 526 SBG had there been one in my size available but I don't think I would've made me any happier.

Hi @Monitor  and welcome aboard. Thanks for a great first post, especially the pics. Pics are always welcome

Cool that you love the jacket, the 21oz is the flagship denim and is well loved. Rightly so in my opinion.

As for the jacket getting some love, it seems to have pretty sold well in the two short months it’s been available and a lot of retailers have it too. So it’s getting loved in that respect. Keep posting here and I’m sure others will follow.

@Monitor, looks great! I wouldn't say that this isn't getting love, it's just that it's essentially the IH-526J but with pockets. The forum for that jacket is pretty robust, and has great pics.

@Monitor perfect fit on the jacket!  I can see why you love it.  The 21oz. flagship denim is really something special, a great intro to Iron Heart.

As already said that is an absolutely perfect fit for a great classic type 3 look.

Just perfect.

I just got a 526PJ this week and it's really a wonderful jacket and the XXL is a perfect fit.  Yours looks great, @Monitor  8)

Cheers, everyone! Thanks!

Oh, and yeah, the forum is what I meant when I said it's not getting enough love. I mean, compared to the 50-something pages the 526J has. So I figured we ought to do something about it and even things out a bit. :)

But yep, no doubt it's a popular jacket - When I was trying to figure out which size to get, the stock was getting smaller each day I'd check the product page. Eventually I bought this M out of fear it'll disappear before I make up my mind. Good thing I did as mine was the last one.

I'll definitely be posting more photos of it.

My mind is made up - it is this. I need this.

I am having a horrendous time trying to work out sizing, though. I have an ancient Levi's Trucker that I have measured (the Iron Heart way, as in the video) and it does not seem to make sense.

Shoulders 54cm, suggesting that an XXXL will be too small. If I measure it from shoulder to shoulder straight across, it is 48cm. With the buttons done up and my shoulders all the way back like a weirdo, it is just a touch tight.

Chest 62cm, again, so an XXXL will be too small. The jacket is quite large in the chest and I can layer a shirt and hoody (this is good) and have over 3" of space left.

Waist 54cm, so an XXL will be right

I wear a Levis M denim shirt but an Iron Heart XL fits me perfectly. 33-34" waist IH jeans. 40" suit jackets which are far too tight at the moment (I had an accident and an operation so I have not been able to do any exercise in 18 months) but normally are ok.

I am not a particularly muscular man, nor am I all that fat. At 6' and 86kg, I could do with losing quite a few kilos, that much I will admit, but I am not a large man by any stretch of the imagination. Yes, it is 10kg.

Sorry about the mixed measurements...I am an ex-pat Brit from the late 70s. So I think in inches, do not really understand them, and only have access to cm tape measurers.

Hmmm... this is a conundrum.

I’m the same height as you, wear waist 34-35 jeans, take XL in IH shirts and weigh about 6kg more, (I’m also a British ex-pat born in the 70’s but that is besides the point). I’d wear XL in this. XXL at a push if I wanted to layer a hoodie under it (although then it would be too long).

I’d suggest the fit and cut of your old Levi’s and the fit and cut of this jacket are wildly different and you’re effectively comparing apples and oranges.
