You are gonna have a blast @IH-GARY ; every night is a completely different set and they have a catalog of probably now hundreds of covers and originals, it is well worth going to multiple shows when they do a run. They play every note like their lives depend upon it. One of my favorite, if not my favorite, touring bands (and they don't even have--or need--a damn drummer!). They cover everything from Pearl Jam* to Sabbath to old timey traditional songs, and Billy, Other Billy (Failing, on banjo), and Jarrod (Walker, on mandolin) write good original songs too, and somehow they blend these extremely disjointed styles of music seamlessly. I bet you get a "London Calling" debut or some other tribute to the city.

@SKT selfishly, I really loved being able to see them in intimate venues, but I want them to be as big as they want to be. And yes, you definitely need to go see them. If you like the videos, you'll be blown away by the live experience.

I will now stop gushing :D

*Found a horrorshow video of them decked out as droogs for Halloween two years ago playing "In Hiding"

This is my Jack-o’-lantern before and after the neighborhood squirrels went to work on it. Much scarier after, yes? Need to remember for next year

It's like a 7 year old did the first one, and a 7 year old Rob Zombie did the 2nd one.

I got a pair of jeans from a different very hyped and very popular Japanese brand out of curiosity and I received them today. I absolutely hate the texture and feel of the denim. The threads are really thin, the pockets are unlined, belt loops not tucked into the waistband... etc. Not going to give up my Iron Heart's for that stuff, ever.

Don't ask if I'm selling them, they ain't for sale and I'm not gonna say what brand.  :D I do like how they fit so I'll probably save them for dates and occasions where I don't want to stink. 😂

Not all brands have the same goals…
That doesn’t necessarily make the less or more quality. I’m wearing mostly repro brand jeans, so those automatically use less heavy denim, cotton stitching etc…

Everyone has their style.

Yep, you're right. There's also a significant difference in cost. But I was just saying I for me, that I wouldn't want to commit to wearing anything else but iron heart, every single day. More or less saying too, I don't get the hype...

Going to a friend's funeral today who was only 45...5 years of blood clots, amputation of limbs, and just a plethora of everything that could go wrong...

Never complained and said it could always be worse.  He was a great man who would give you the shirt off his back and help even when he couldn't...

Sometimes life isn't fair... :(

I hear ya @Filthy . My prejudice for IH is based on my values, which include quality and durability. I haven't found a brand that excels in those areas AND matches my style like Iron Heart, so I keep coming back. I've so often been disappointed when my IH expectations apply to other brands. There are many amazing brands in this space doing amazing things, but none of them match my values quite like IH.

Iron Heart is "slow fashion" and built to last structurally and in terms of timeless style. I have garments running ten years strong that I expect to outlast me, and "buy it for life" is important to me in terms of common sense and sustainability.
Think it, be it.
