Always remember that Hiut was started by an advertising executive.  They're great at creating an emotional hook.

Random questions to which you seek an answer

@organisys @beautiful_FrEaK @Chris and the rest of the gang, thank you. I admit that this was a poorly concealed attempt to have a bit if a go on my part.

I'm loathe to speak ill of other brands on here, and I like a lot about Hiut, but their marketing sometimes drives me nuts. These guys sold the whole "no wash" thing heavily when they started about eight years ago and
when I saw this post last night, it took a great deal of will power not to get stuck into them on Instagram. It was worse when I read the comments from people stuffing their faces full of this happy horseshit with both hands. But I resisted the instincts of my inner troll and posted here instead.

Led by a genius ad-man they may be, but the trite, spurious, confusion of dyeing techniques combined with a load of bollocks about natural indigo being far superior to synthetic, and only used by the best for the most superior fades, made my teeth itch. It is tantamount to either wilfully misleading your customer, or indicative of a level of ignorance unbecoming of the writer of the text. I find it rather annoying that it happens and more so that people lap up the indelicate codswallop.

Have to admit I’ve never seen or heard the word codswallop before. Now that I’ve googled it,I can’t imagine ever saying it with my ,wonderful,Bronx accent.

I think some things are best left to our respective dialects. Codswallop is one. I don’t think I could ever pull off a «forget about it» with the same dismissive panache that a true New Yorker can.

@Jett129 I can just hear you saying it  :D.

Got distracted before I read up, but yes as my grandmother would say, 'what a load of old tosh'

@AdamJ I guess it would have to be “Fucking Codswallop” to sound appropriate.

I believe the correct spelling is actually "fuggedaboutit"  ;)

Haha... it should be in the Merriam-Webster, just like that.

Hi, I just purchased the following belt in natural and can't wait to see it age.

https://www.ironheart.co.uk/accessories/ihb-06.html

I really like the brass hardware a lot, however I have a lot of accessories that would go better with silver/nickel. I was wondering if Iron Heart made such a thing separately to swap out if I chose to?

Thanks

Not in that style buckle, no.  Sorry....

Seems like the kind of aftermarket accessory that Good Art Hollywood should make...

Just joined the iron heart family with a pair of 777 XHS.   I thought i knew what i was getting into since i have some experience with heavy denim ie ONI secret, but these are a different beast.   Absolutely love them.   Just wondering how long till the denim softens up enough to stop making a noise while walking.

@alwaysbefading I love it when folks just dive straight in! I’d say the initial stiffness starts dissipating within a week or two, depending what you’re doing in them. My 888-XHSib are about 40 wear days in and it went a while ago.  Days 15-30 were spent building stuff in though, so that helps for sure.

Hi all,

I've been going back and forth between the extinct section and the different shirting threads and, it looks like, in the UHFs that the 127 was the first to use Aspero cotton? It was released in September of 2015 then the first iterations  of the 130s was Aspero in 2015. Am I missing one before that? 

Just some fun facts to know :)
