Looks great, but I'd love to know what you are saying :) :) :) :) :)

I edited the "move" out of your post because the video kept disappearing  :D

This year my 634 S turned 9 years old  ???
They are alive and feel great!!!


Are the pair in the video the same as the pair you mention in this post from over a year ago? 10 years old now. What happened in their 10th year?

Please do share the cons for those of us unable to understand Russian.

No problem, you’re Russian and your English is great. My English is OK, but my Russian is terrible.

But these are your 10 year old pair?

Thanks for explaining. I don’t think any jean is perfect but here’s some context for you:

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.

EDIT: Having just watched the video again you may be referring to the extra stitching over the pocket bags ending in a bar tack. That is two sets of constructional stitching together on the waistband. It is not incomplete.

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.

3. You’re right. The 21oz denim is deliberately designed to fade without high contrasts. If you wanted high contrast jeans you bought the wrong jeans. There are many other options. Other brands have them, but within the Iron Heart range you have the XHS denims and the 19oz LHT denim to name two. They both fade with very high contrast, because they are designed to. Your jeans look exactly like a well worn pair of Iron Heart 21oz should do. I think they are lovely.

4. Again this is correct. That is exactly how the 634 is designed to be. It is based on an old model of Levi 501’s. Slimmer in the thigh and wide from the knee and down. If you would like a jean with a slimmer knee and more taper, then the 888, 777, and 555 cuts will all meet your needs.

5. The leather patches are made of veg-tanned leather. If you do not oil it and also wash your jeans over 40C then it will end up looking like yours does. This is true of all veg-tanned leather patches. Some of my leather patches look like yours after one year. I’d say yours looks pretty good. I’d also say that any patch that has survived for 10 years can’t be described as short lived. In the future, if you want your patch to survive longer, oil it before washing and avoid washing at high temperatures.

I’d say you have got your money’s worth out of your 634s after 10 years. That is quite impressive. They look like a great pair of jeans to me. It is a shame you seen unhappy with them now. I would be proud to call them mine.

Maybe after 10 years your tastes have changed? You would like something slimmer with high contrast fading? I can recomend the 888-XHSib, the 555-XHS or the 777-XHS. They all meet that description. The 888 even has deeper pocket bags, although the others don’t for the reasons mentioned above. You will still need to oil the patches on all of them though.

I agree with @neph93

Most of my dissatisfaction with any high end denim/work wear brand I've bought over the years has most often been due to me buying the wrong model for my needs. It is a learning process that never really ends.

I have selvedge Levis 501s that are almost 20 years old and still holding strong. I have a pair of IH 555 N that ideally need the pocket bag replaced after 2 years... The difference? I wear the shit out of my IH gear because I love it so much.

The Cherry on top of the IH cake for me personally are the free lifetime repairs, when a repair is viable.

Nothing is without its flaws (except me, I'm bloody perfect me  :D), thankfully some brands like IH have a pretty great hit rate most of the time in my opinion.
