@neph93 Your shirt looks amazing! I received mine last week and I'm looking forward to the cooler months.

@atm23 Thank you and congrats on a special shirt.

They are so crisp and stiff when new, it’s great. I wrote this somewhere else recently, but for me this shirt embodies all the qualities that define Iron Heart. Wonderful fabric, classic but refined design, fantastically engineered and hard wearing af. And of course they age incredibly.

@neph93 I completely agree with everything you've said. This embodies the work wear clothing ethos to me. I owned hickory and Wabash shirts in the early 90s before I really knew what they were, and when you could still buy vintage American work wear on stalls in London.

I think I could have got away with an XL in this and cool washed it, but the XXL fits fine after your advice. The is some white lining on the inside of the shirt, but none on the outside. The hem curl doesn't bother me too much. My indigo IH 33 does it sometimes too so I'm used to it.

Your IH 68 has aged amazingly! I love the wear and fade on Wabash...thanks for sharing the pics

I got my shirt and beanie this morning. I appreciate how early FedEx got here. Also, I saw that my order was processed at 4:47 GMT... that's dedication there... thanks.  :D   Anyway, love the new shirt. For someone that is addicted to things with a smooth soft hand, the fabric is amazing. It's not bulky at all but the overall weight is heavy. Definitely Iron Heart, and definitely the sharpest looking shirt I own now.

Awful picture (there's no sun at all today) but I moved the button on the cuff in a little to make them smaller. I used red thread to match the contrast stitch of the shirt because I didn't have that deep navy color Works used.

Do I need to soak this to avoid fade shift or is it good to go?

Nice job with the button!

Although it will shrink a little, it doesn’t really shrink enough to make a difference to the combs at the elbows.

Thanks. That's a good thing because I am keen on this not seeing water for a long time.

One thing though, washing gently (30C, 800rpm) gives very little shrinkage. If you blast it, it may make quite a difference.

I received this last week and have been wearing it regularly. I like the comment on the inside which reads basically, “wear it a lot before washing.”"1D6ACCC0-5A3E-45D6-95CC-ACCEE89C7FBE.jpeg""B62F30CB-7C49-4D67-92E2-F1C81046A11B.jpeg""04612D44-A314-4DE9-A632-4E2A0174CE43.jpeg"

nice pick-up

a lot of Iron Heart shirts say that on the inside.

this is one of those incredible shirts that I was too much of a whimp to give the wear it required and sold it . . . plus it was kind of big for me after I lost a few pounds.

think I may revisit this beauty when winter comes

It’s a fair cop but the forum is to blame.

Picked this up in the marketplace. Couldn’t be happier with it!

Is there an anticipated restock on these? Looked everywhere for an XXXL.

There will be a restock, but we don't have a production run planned at the moment.  Unfortunately, not many retailers take this shirt, which reduces the frequency of production runs......

@Chap you look awesome mate, but I hope that 68 is getting some wear on it...
