Iron Heart Denim Glossary - Beta version
« on: July 09, 2020, 07:46:01 pm »
Hi everyone.

For the last few months I've been helping the crew in Gosport with a denim glossary for the Iron Heart International website. We want it to be of use to everyone who is interested in our niche corner of the clothing world, and as such it contains a broad range of denim related terms. At the same time we want it to be specific to the brand, so there is a great deal of IH specific information included. We also have plans to illustrate it and cross-link it with the website.

It is at the point where there are enough entries to publish it, but it is by no means finished. It is very much a "beta-version". As such we would appreciate forum user's input, through you guys commenting, suggesting entries we need to include, or improvements we can make. Please do take a look at the beta-version here:

https://www.ironheart.co.uk/content/denim-glossary

All comments and suggestions for entries should be posted on this thread and will be greatly appreciated. The crew and I will make updates regularly and hopefully we can make this a truly comprehensive, useful resource for everyone.

Cheers,

Reuben (or neph93, if you like  ;) )

Impressive.  I'm sure that list took many hours of effort.

The format of the definition of Left Hand Twill needs to be fixed.  Looks like a copy-paste error in which one of the two alternatives was updated.

That is fantastic. A term that I’ve occasionally heard,that I’m not really sure of,or if it in any way pertains to IH,is Deadstock. I get the impression that it’s something that I should think is cool,but I’m not sure why.

Thanks! Deadstock was originally covered under an entry for «Vintage Denim» but that seems to have disappeared in an edit. We’ll consider how to fix that.

(Between you and me, deadstock is fabric or finished articles that are no longer made, but have been stored. As a theoretical example, if Haraki-san went into his store house and found a roll of UHR that had been sat there for 10 years it would be considered deadstock. Any jeans made from that roll could also be called deadstock. Obviously, rare and limited items, especially with the provenance of age, have a certain amount of «cool» attached to them).

Just a minor suggestion but IMO "boyfriend" should be "boyfriend cut"?

An excerpt from the Chino definition;

"The etymology of the term chino is disputed. Some sources identify the root as the American Spanish language word chino, which translated, literally means toasted."

Spanish is not my native language but I'm fairly familiar with it and as far as I know Chino means Chinese, not toasted.  Anybody who's fluent in Spanish here can correct me if I'm wrong obviously...but I'm about 99% certain Chino does not mean toasted.  Tostado (tostada, feminine) is the translation for toasted.

Can’t remember the source for that, but I will check it out. Thank you.
