I'm a bit disappointed that I found the beginnings of a hole near my back pocket already. I'll get a picture posted later, it seems like it might be an odd spot for a hole to begin.

Is it right under the lowest point of the actual pocket?

Top corner, center of the jean. Kind of looks like some of weave has come undone.

Hmmm... I’ll be interested to see the picture. If you think it is a fault you should get in touch with shop@ironheart.co.uk, or whichever retailer you purchased from if it wasn’t Gosport.

Any issue should really be taken up in the first instance with where you bought the item from.  If it was us and if it is a fault, we'll sort it immediately.  If it was not us, and it is a fault, I hope that the retailer you bought it from, would do the same (if not, let us know).  If it was us, and we don't consider it a fault, we'll let you know.  But until we see a photo, we have no opinion.

Purchased through ironheart, and I'll have a picture up asap. I don't think it's a major issue but I'd like some thoughts on it at the very least.

"PXL_20201109_221619317.jpg" Doesn't look bad, just in an odd place.

It’s actually in a fairly predictable spot for wear, believe it or not. Those back pocket corners take a lot of abuse, and depending on the fit and fabric and how you wear them, they can show wear sooner or later, and that spot in the corner is the first place to go. The 21oz overdyed is an extremely soft and pliable fabric and because of that, it might wear through quicker in the most high stress areas (not stress in terms of external abuse, but stress in the fabric pulling away from the rivet and seam stitching of the pocket). Ironically, the softness and pliability makes it more durable in some ways (lack of sharp creasing, lack of friction caused holes), and less durable in others (easily stretched), compared to heavier denims. Case in point, my 21/23oz denim has holes from friction and sharp creases, but the back pockets are solid. And to show how different weight denims hold up to similar wear, my 18oz. denim has holes from all these sources of stress. Luckily, the back pocket holes have not increased in size considerably over the years, and honestly I’ve never worried about it. Certainly they are not as urgent a concern as holes near the crotch seam, which get bigger quickly.


21oz. OD: these have more than 7 years of wear and the holes in the pocket corners never got big enough to warrant repair. And as a testament to the softness and pliability of this denim, I have not had to repair them anywhere else either.

21/23oz: these were fixed in the crotch and hems twice over four years. Back pockets are solid

18oz: these have been easier to wear through than the heavier denims, but they still fade beautifully

And it sometimes happens on shirt pockets too. It’s the price we pay to wear the most rugged fabrics sewn up with the toughest threads and the thickest seams. Sometimes the toughness is self-destructive. Lighter fabrics don’t know and can’t touch this level of rugged.

My main issue is I've only owned them for four months. my theory is that the corner caught something wrong as I sat up or something.

I understand the issue and your feelings, as I have the same issues on several of my own Iron Heart items. But it’s just regular wear and tear once you wear it for four months man. There are too many variables involved in diagnosing the cause and what’s to blame in my opinion. Don’t let it get you down. It’s an inconsequential battle scar at the moment, and shouldn’t get much bigger unless your wear patterns are creating that stress to begin with. Keep rocking them. The hole on my 21oz.OD pair in the same spot did not expand considerably over years of wear and washes. When you decide to repair, that area can be fixed with little consequence.

@adam313 thanks for insights and pics, more the merrier. These have essentially been my only pair of jeans since I bought them. I've been trying to buy some 25oz to try but I'm pretty much in between a 36 and 38.

Oh wow, that’s a big gap. I have to imagine there are lots of people in that size range on here who can share their experiences searching for the right size. I’m between 28-31 so I’m on the other side of the spectrum. My biggest concern is the thigh measurement. I can wear a belt if the waist is a bit big, but 38” is a lot of fabric so I bet it’s not that easy to get the dimensions right. The 25oz makes life more interesting, luckily you have lots of different cuts and denims to choose from. Good luck!

This type of quick repair can be done by hand, before larger treatments are necessary. Cross that bridge when you get there as they say 🖤
