But I don't know what status the UK is considered now.
Nor do we.....

Am I the only one who is having a connection problem on selected threads on the forum?
When I click onto General Chat, I get this https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=4.0
When I click on News - The Flat Head - News, I can read it up to page three https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12816.30, but when I try to click page 4, I get this again https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12816.45.
The page says:    You have caught us with our pants down.  Bear with us while we tinker this site.
Not sure why, perhaps it has something to do with my computer.  I am using Google Chrome.  Thougths and remedies?


Update:  Everything seems to be working fine now.

Probably a day late with an answer but Service is another cool shop - I bought quite a few pieces from there back in the day

I finally found someone selling a second hand IHSH-193 and I've been looking for it in size small for a long while...

It's in size M with the following measurements:

Shoulder width: 45cm
Chest width: 54cm
Legth from back: 75cm
Sleeve length: 65cm

I want to get 3cm shrinkage on all of those measurements. Is it possible to achieve that with a tumble dryer? I would periodically check to not over-shrink it. I would never do this to any of my other shirts but the IHSH-193 is an absolute favourite of mine so...

Highly doubtful. They are once washed to remove shrinkage, and that will be an industrial wash. A full 90C wash followed by a tumble dry  *may* give you something, but it won’t be 3cm on all dims, and you risk damaging the fabric giving it that kind of treatment.

Ah, damn it... Thanks for the reply @neph93, I'll pass on purchasing it then.

Once again - RIP dreams of IHSH-193 :(

If it's just 3 cm too big, I'm sure it would still look good on you. I don't think most people would be able to tell the difference between a shirt that's three centimeters too big.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't mind what people think about me in that regard. It's actually due to the fact that I'm a short guy. I don't feel comfortable wearing something slightly larger than what I usually wear. That's why I'm quite pedantic when it comes to the measurements.

If the shirt were large on just one area, I'd perhaps give it a thought on having it professionally altered. However unfortunately it's all of the areas.

Hey, I know that all too well. I recently bought a leather jacket that was a little too large. Everyone does not see that's it's about an inch too big in the chest except me.  :'(
