Hi Everyone

I'm James, living in London (but include the standard disclaimer that I'm not from here originally!).

I've been wearing raw denim since I bought a pair of Nudies back in about 2008. That pair is still going strong, although at this point they've had so many repairs it's debatable whether they're really the same jeans (think Trigger's broom). These days my favourite pair are by PBJ, bought from Rivet and Hide a couple of years ago. I don't have any Iron Heart stuff yet but hoping to remedy that soon, which is how I came across this place. Have to say I've been super impressed with how friendly and knowledgeable everyone round here seems.

Apart from denim I also appreciate good coffee and good beer, which seems to be a common theme. I used to have a lot of other hobbies too, but a new baby has put them all on hold for the time being!

Looking forward to getting hold of some IH stuff and learning loads more from this forum.

Cheers

@jayaytee between the coffee, beer and babies you'd find enough to talk about to keep you going here a while, and that is before you even get to the clothes. Welcome!

Thanks all. Yeah I'm trying not to become one of those people who can only talk about their baby, but this is basically my life at the moment...

As a father of two, I know the feeling.

Hey Everyone,

I've been a member for a bit, but never introduced myself. I'm Pete, originally from Providence, Rhode Island. Now living in Lafayette, Colorado.

I've got a handful of IH gear. Currently breaking in a pair of 777-xhsib's which are easily one of my favorite pairs of jeans ever.

Hi everyone,
I'm Keith. Just got my first pair of IH's yesterday thanks to Graham for helping me out. Unfortunately, they've gone up the birthday chute until next week so no comment on them yet.

I do however have a question that must have been asked before. Why is a "W" stitched in to the jeans?
