I think they've held up better than my nine year old pair...

I don't ride a motorcycle, but as someone who carries a gun behind the front right belt loop and two magazines behind the front left belt loop, I prefer the shorter pockets. Digging my entire hand into the bottom of my pocket is tough when you have stuff behind your belt.


I wonder how much shit people are carrying in their pockets? I have a Swiss Army Knife, a pocket pen, my wallet and a small vape device. My cell phone and flashlight goes in my back pockets.


Even if I didn't carry a gun, I wouldn't want to dig all the way down to my mid thigh to fetch out my vape.

Damn, that's a lot of crap. Have you considered just wearing a tool belt?

I carry more or less nothing in my front pockets. I have my work keys on a BLB and in a slim leather case and that goes in the top of the pocket. My car key will go in there on an odd occasion when I’m putting the kids in the car and have my hands full otherwise. Part of it is vanity (having things stuffed in your front pockets looks dumb) and part of it is as Doug says. I also carry so much shit that I need a bag on the best of days.

For me, it's this:

Keys in the front right pocket and wallet in the back left.  Occasionally, my cell phone goes in the back right, but it's such a giant damn brick, I'm usually carrying it in hand.

In my opinion the 634 is the best/most comfortable fitting denim that i have ever worn.

@Chris


Pen-requisite
Swiss Army Knife-requisite
Wallet-requisite
Keys-requisite
Smartphone-I downsized to the small version of the iPhone 11 Pro-requisite
Flashlight-for walking the dogs, if you're self defense minded, requisite


Gun isn't for everyone, the magazines are to balance the weight from right to left. I used to only carry one and was developing some lower back issues.

It is so magnificent that interest of good jeans brings people from different countries together

1. Chainstitch on the belt? Has the waist stitching broken? No surprise after 10 years in that case. It is very strong thread but it is only thread. It isn’t made of kevlar.
1)   This is chain stitch. It must be stitched to the end in premium class jeans but it doesnt.


For example Samurai 710 19 oz has got chain stitch to the end.

2. The designer of the jeans rides motorbikes. Putting lots of things in your front pocket when riding a bike is not a good idea. This is why they are narrow, and shallow. It is a well known feature of Iron Heart jeans and quite deliberate. Not everyone likes it. That is fine.
2)   I m telling about palm width not about pocket depth. My hand doesn’t fit easy into the pocket even though I have a narrow palm

It is more comfortable pocket in Samurai. Because my palm fit easy in it.

Having chainstitch to the end of the waistband has zero bearing on quality.  You may prefer it, but that does not mean it is better.

Cool. you can get your hands into Samurai jeans easier, then buy them.  It is not a lack of quality that ours are smaller it is personal preference.

We know our jeans are nor for everyone, that is why the world is such a wonderful place, we all like different stuff.

Recent posts got me thinking. I'd never even given pocket width and depth a second thought, and came to the conclusion that's because they are perfect for my requirements.

Wallet - back right pocket
Bandana, pocket square - back left pocket
Mob phone - front left pocket
Knife, pocket pen, loose change - front right pocket

Never feels uncomfortable or overly full.

I would say though, that over 12-18 months regular use, approx 50% of the IH clothes I have had a button hole blow. They thread count of the heavier materials seen to have trouble holding a stich on the open edge of button holes. I'd suggest using a finer, tougher thread. I do that to repair them and they hold fine (thanks to an @Giles tutorial)

@USSR you’re basing your opinions on 10 year old jeans. All newer (less than six years old)  pairs of IH I have have a chainstitch going to the end, by the way. Things change. Do you have any 10 year old Sammy’s to compare with?

As for your pair, they’ve held up for 10 years. Have you considered the benefit of taking the chainstitch all the way out? Is there any in terms of construction? Chainstitch is actually a relatively weak constructional stitch. Have you thought that there may be no benefit, or that there is a reason why it stops with a bar tack on your 634’s? Perhaps the jeans are stronger as a result?

As noted earlier the pocket thing is a deliberate design choice. If you personally want to put your hands in your jean pockets then you are correct to buy other brands. But that is personal preference, it has nothing to do with quality.

I love Samurai jeans by the way. They’re great in many ways, not least those that make them different from Iron Heart. But to suggest that Iron Heart are not “premium” to use your own word, because of specific design choices on your 10 year old pair, seems a little silly.
