Here’s another idea, how about a forum flannel, like the Kanreki shirt that was made for Giles’ 60th? Giles could get some fabric swatches for us to look at and then all we’d have to determine is weight, pattern and whether or not it would be a work shirt or western. I think IH’s flannels are second to none because the patterns/colors are amazing. Not sure if it’s less risky to make shirts versus denim though


I retract my forum flannel shirt suggestion  :D A forum flannel shirt is a bad idea because of potential sizing issues. I think it was @Giles that mentioned before, especially if IH did pre-orders, is if you get X number of orders per size and those sizes come under spec then you've pissed off a bunch of other people whose size didn't work out.
WTB:
IHSH-129 size L (blue)
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-196 size L

Same is true of jeans, to a point.

I don’t know why but denim seems more consistent in terms of fit. Has IH ever dealt with denim runs that came under spec?

Yes - the 19oz LHT, for example was way off tag size. The 555 cut tends to sew up larger than tag etc etc

I would instantly get a heavy-denim 816.  Promises not to buy more jeans, be damned!

I’m with you on that one, brother! That fabric has some amazing fade potential for sure. Although I must admit, given that the workshirt crowd got the (under the radar classic) 165, I really don’t feel left out.
I put on my pants the same way you do, I just put on better pants.

How about chainstitched denim shirts or vests? Iron heart across the back with a badass pic would be insane! I know I’d pop all over that, a quality trucker cap would be another suggestion

This is one of my son’s flannels. I’d like to see a uhf in a similar colorway. Or is this too close to the ihsh-37?

I'm lucky this way, I can wear denim to work.  But I try to dress it up a bit and often look for a heavy duty white Oxford.  Gitman does a good job, the better of the Brooks Brothers is okay but not what it could be.  What it could be is Iron Heart.  Maybe it's too far from work wear but that's what I should wear to work---an Iron Heart white Oxford with a perfect roll collar button down, the real deal.  Just an idea.  Thanks for having me.

It's a good idea and not the first time it has been suggested. In fact IHUK were looking at starting a line of formal/semi-formal shirting (see here: https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=11087.0). Samples were made but the project is currently on hold.

I believe that Haraki-san made an IH Oxford shirt way back when too, you can browse the extinct section to check. The white chambray work shirts that pop up from time to time, combined with newer denim and a maybe a vest, do a pretty good job of being "business casual", for those of us who can get away with it.

The point being, while there may not be much available now, something will show up at some point.
