A recurring theme around this forum is wives, husbands and partners, children or parents stealing our clothes, or alternatively, having Iron Heart pushed upon them reluctantly or otherwise. Is this wise? Are we educating and raising our loved ones to appreciate quality, or are we just projecting our expensive addictions onto them?  :D

@Aetas pointed this out to me recently when I mentioned my oldest son would be receiving an IHT-1610L for his recent birthday, (this will bring his total of IH tees up to three after @Giles and @Madame Buttonfly kindly gifted all our big boys with a tee when we visited at xmas).

Otherwise @Brock's dad rocks some IH, @jordanscollected considerably better half has a shirt or two, and I believe @IH-GARY's lad has some gear too.

Any pics already posted elsewhere are welcome here, any stories funny related to theme are too. Have at it, boys and girls...

IG post from an IH-tee day a few years back. The boys were made to pose in my tees while helping me landscape the grounds... they now have their own.

This was Jess' reaction when I told her that 12oz Indigo isn't the only option in the 33

Not IH but I bought it through IHUK so I’ll allow it...

Great idea @neph93. I tried hard to get my wife to love her IHSH-13, but it may be the longest wearing shirt in Iron Heart history. I think she has roughly 10 wears of it in over a year. Similarly I purchased her a pair of the Wrangler 27406 Cone Mills Raw denim when they did their limited collab a couple years ago. Add to it a pair of Red Wing Clara welted boots and we have exactly 1 high end outfit. Well done Jeff.

I can sum up my experience trying to get her into this in a few bullet points:

the Chambray isn't as comfortable as other shirts
the jeans aren't as soft as her other jeans

The Red Wing's she wears the most, but she prefers sneakers or other boots.
She would much rather be in ranch clothes covered with horse crap than dressed up.
love her to death and such is life.

I'll get more pics of her shirt soon, but for now, that's the story of my attempt at getting into this amazing hobby, and hopefully getting a better reaction when i want something new.

Yes great idea Reuben.

Jules is a forum member in her own right but I have to echo some of what @jordanscollected wrote. I have sourced items for Jules that she has worn infrequently and then have been sold on.

The lesson learnt is that the items Jules loves and wears most often are those that she has chosen for herself and as a consequence she has a range of stuff including IH, Buzz Rickson, MF, Samurai & Red Wings.

Thank you but the credit goes to @Aetas. Amusingly, he was inspired by what I suspect was one of those pieces @Black Orchid passed over. Hopefully he will post a pic and tell the story himself.

@jordanscollected I think that was a tremendous effort on your part, but lesson learnt!

Yes @neph93 you are correct and I agree that it would be awesome to see if "he ( @Aetas' son ) will post a pic and tell the story himself
