@manufc10 if I was into lightweight denim I would totally get a pair of jeans from this Viapiana. These are sublimely awesome http://www.viapiana.ca/workwear/

Tons of lighter weight denim to pick from.

Wow...all custom?

All custom, I have so many jeans but I want him to make me a flannel lined pair of those in a 15 oz denim or indigo duck. I have been meaning to write to him but never got around to it.

If we consider old-timey western and work wear that much of the JP denim world used as original inspiration, it was lighter weight fabrics in the 10-12 oz range.
......But if these brands stray too far from the DNA of what they do and started making everything and anything, then that identity becomes diluted.

IH has made polo shirts, sweatpants, and coffee cups.....I'm failing to see how a 12oz denim strays farther away from the brand's DNA and identity than those items.

i’m enjoy this conversation

i been here a little while and have seen some hits and misses from Iron Heart

as long as the same attention 2 detail and thoughtful design goes into it i will continue 2 support wherever it is the team dreams up

we tend 2 put our own identity into things we love and it’s no different with this religion i mean brand

bring on the area rugs, mugs, polo tops and sweatpants imho it doesn’t take away but expands the brand cause it’s not done 4 the sake of doing but because we the customers usually ask 4 it

still waiting on button down collar oxford shirts made out of the fabric used 4 the 13 & 21
head high, middle finger higher

Heavyweight denim is absolutely central to IH, it is the brand’s raison d'être. Polo shirts, coffee cups and sweatpants are not, no?

I can labour the point if you like, but
I’m afraid the brand is never going to produce everything everyone wants. The things it doesn’t make define it as much as the things it does.

Would love an 18OZ Black/Black denim CPO with a Black Corduroy collar. The third in the 177/178 Trilogy.

Call me crazy / scream heresy all you want, but this jacket - minus the front pocket and possibly in Superblack or SBG  or dare I say indigo/black - would make my panties wet big time. I know it’s not a type I without the front pocket but damn.

That would be very clean and smart.

This, and since new denim would need to be made for it, make it SBG.

clipped f/ 555XHSib thread
The 555 is being re-run.  AND, we will also run the 634 in this denim......
@Giles any intel on when the 634XHSib will drop?
