I also hope I posted a picture the correct way? I tried to go to the link in my welcome message but it didn't work.  Apologies if I did it incorrectly.

Hello all, I joined a bit ago, been lurking and all. My name is scott, I currently live in the dirty south aka Savannah, Georgia. I'm one of them dirtball tattooers, rider of motorcycles and avid runner. Over the past couple years I've been getting a bit more serious about my denim game and really seem to prefer the heavier weights.

Hi everyone, long-time-lurker, first-time-poster/registerer here.

Have finally saved up enough in my running away PayPal account from selling sundry bits and bobs and am in now a position to pull the trigger on my first pair of Iron Hearts – hallelujah!

My current (read: only) go-to denim is a pair of 19oz Lee101Z that I snagged a while back. I’m really enjoying giving them a beating, but it occurs to me that I really ought to have a second pair (of decent jeans) so I can rotate/prolong lifespans…

The current measurements of the Lees suggest the closest match, fit-wise, would be something from the 634 family. However, I do find that the 101Zs have loosened up considerably (tag size was 34; real size (IH-method-measured) now is c37”…), and I really miss the fit and feeling of the Lees in their early days. They had a great fitted feel to them – which then naturally leads me to be inclined towards the fit of the 666 family (incidentally, the 21oz in both). And no, unfortunately I neglected to measure them pre-soak/wear :/

Does anyone else on the forum have any experience of the 101Z cut? Would be very interested to compare experiences.

Current stats of the Lees:
  • Waist: 37 (there’s definitely some spare room in there!)
    Front rise: 11.75
    Rear rise: 16.5 (happy to shave an inch here)
    Hem: 8.3
    Thigh: 13
    Knee: 9.5 (oh boy, the knee-bags drove me CRAZY, I was so frustrated)
    Inseam: 31.5 (I was surprised how much was lost in the length (I believe they’d have been 34” originally (again, like a noob, I didn’t measure pre-soak)))
From the specs of the 666S-21, I’d imagine the 34-tagged pairs are going to be the size and fit I’m after, with the 35-measured waist giving way in time to a more friendly 36-odd. It’s the thigh that I need to keep an eye on, right?

And to throw a spanner in the works, I’m also eyeing up the 666SII too… (which, by all accounts, are shrinker-stretchers, as opposed to just-stretchers).

Anyway, I’ve taken up enough of the forum with my first post. Any thoughts and suggestions gratefully received. And to be honest, with the phenomenal Iron Heart sizing/returns deal, I can’t really go far wrong, eh?

✌️

Hi guys , also new member here.

Im from Ruhrarea in Germany.

Had a background more in Sneaker /Streetwear but with years and age the sporty style is not mine anymore.
So im more and more in last long goods from quality but also from aging side.

Lost my heart to Japan / American brands in past like... Stussy, Neighborhood, Visvim , RRL , LVC.

So hope i can join the forum and take part here.

in meantime can check my https://www.instagram.com/soul_azzazzin/ for a better view.

best regard Soul

Welcome, dude. I too was a Stussy whore in my youth (that was long, long ago).

Enjoy the forum, and don't be afraid to ask questions...

I've got quite a few years on @SoulAzzazzin at least  :o

Cheers, for that. It's going to be fun I think  :)

Hello everyone,

New to IH, not so new to denim. Just got my first pair recently (IH-777S-21BLK) and haven’t managed to convince myself to wear anything else since. Besides denim, I also have what my significant other claims is an excessive collection of Danner boots (most recently the Mountain Light II Black “Bond boots”).

Looking forward to contributing what I can to the forums.

Cheers,

-YesBlank
Works on my machine.

Hello everyone...

My significant other makes a similar claim regarding footwear. She's absolutely right, of course ;)

Good to have you here. Enjoy!
