For any of you 36ers out there, I have a running list of Iron Heart jeans with measurements and some notes for myself.

Some measurements are my own but most are from IHUK and SE. Just remember, the measurements on those sites are taken as an average and can vary.

You don't happen to have real life experience with the Beatle Busters in a 36, do you? I've got the 666s and I'm tempted by the BBs, but the waist measurement of 35 has me scared.

Honestly, I would have G measure the waist of the current four pairs of BBs that they have in stock. I've seen used pairs of BBs with measurements slimmer than my 666S in the same size, so you really need to be sure.

Have him send you the largest sz36 BB he has, I'm sure there will be one close to an actual 36 measurement. If not, it's very easy to force stretch any pair of jeans, even the 25oz.

Or just wear them and they will naturally stretch with no problem.

I've noticed there are collar measurements for some of the shirts, e.g. IHSH-81 and IHSH-33.

Is the measurement taken around the inside of the collar when fully buttoned?

Its rather great to provide those size charts to decide what size buy. At my work, we only provide informations on tags and thats not very useful for people that don't know the brands we sell. The day we do as you, we will have a massive improvement for our customers.

To buy stuff from japan, i use rakuten like maybe people here, and i wonder something ...
Its rather simple to measure waist, thigh ... What can be the reason sellers give different measures ?
For my edwin 505z, 3cm more in sizes chart that in reality
And 3 cm in the waist makes a massive difference on the fit  >:( So i need to order a size down.

For the 814 in size 32 for exemple to compare to your products, i found waist 81.3 84 and 85 cm  ;D
Umm, i should trust you for IH, but that will help me for others brands.

question about tshirt length.  Is the length measurement taken from the very top of the shirt back or from the bottom of the collar seam? may be a silly question, but that little extra length means a lot.  Thanks.
