I just saw this thread and opened it because I saw @denimhead had posted and have been curious for some time where all his great photos were taken.
I myself am in Chicago. Always have been but someday may head to a place that doesn’t get so cold. It was however the cold that brought me to IH about 2 or so years ago. I was looking for some heavy denim to help me through the winters. Here I am, 2 years later, 6 shirts, 3 pants, 1 jacket, 1 pair boots and a hearty dose of enjoyment. Thanks all.

Welcome @ricardodarmali Looking forward to seeing your XHS and maybe a bit of Jakarta also.

@Bfd70  thanks for the belated write up. I have a very dear sister in law from Chicago and would very much like to visit one day.

Hey all,

Calgary, Alberta Canada.

I'm 63 years old. I've been wearing 501's all my life because of the button fly and the fit. I walked by a purveyor of Japanese Denim on 9th avenue in my city about a month ago. I was so impressed.

So - I've just purchased a pair of 666S-21 - my first pair of heavy denim ever.

By god these feel great.

Not hemmed. Just cuffed.

Pics will follow in the near future.

Welcome @Powerband. How did you come across IH?

neph93, thank you. Iron Heart gets talked about so often on the internet that I no longer remember where or how I came across it. But glad I did.

Hello and welcome. Thanks for the introduction. It’s cool that folks can discover the brand by walking into a shop still. Great purchase, looking forward to seeing a pic!

I guess the jungle telegraph has picked up a bit in the last few years. There was a point a few years ago when IH and the other Japanese outfits were considered “secret brands”. Nice to have you on board.

Hello, don't think I've mentioned this yet, but I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Came across Iron Heart when I started getting into denim a number of years ago but never made the commitment until this year. It's a pleasant community here!

New guy here to the forum and ironheart. From N.C.  I’ve had rrl, n&f, 3sixteen, Raleigh denim in the past but recently lost enough weight to need to redo my casual wardrobe. Been a very expensive month. Picked up Corduroy III ivory (IHJ-69), 301s 21oz, ombré check in both gray(IHSH-195) and brick (IHSH-195). Waiting on 19oz typeIII (IH-526L-V2) and 8301 SBG to show up in the mail also. Couple quick pics I had.

Quality over quantity  , although preferably quality and quantity. I’ve been wearing Alden and Allen Edmonds for years,  No issue spending more to get top quality. And with a community this good the brand choice was easy.

"20190914_141205.jpg""20190907_132829.jpg"

I'm new here y'all. I live in Frederick, Maryland, USA. I hope this is a good part of the forum to introduce myself. I am in my 6th year teaching Visual Art at a middle school in town, teaching mostly drawing and painting to 7th and 8th graders. I love the outdoors and nature when I'm not at work, on a couch or partying with my buddays. I have most of my body tattooed, from my head to my toes and have been working on a tattoo bodysuit for 15 years. Currently I am working on a large back piece from my shoulders to my buttcheeks. I am 32 years old and have already burned through one terrifyingly awful marriage. Heavy metal, stone, doom, grindcore, deathcore and classic rock are a few of my favorite types of music. I drink a lot of beer and whiskey but don't usually buy the fancy stuff.

I fell into the raw denim rabbit hole a little over a year ago. After initial interest in Naked and Famous and 3Sixteen, Iron Heart is where I have landed and Iron Heart is where I will remain. Currently fading N&F 32oz, IH555XHSIB, IHJ101, IHxSE Type III BSP-14, IHSH-110 and IHSH-140. I like to wear Carhartt J140 in the winter.


This forum is super rad and I look forward to looking at your fade evolution photos and posting fades of my own.

Thanks for the introduction. When I started getting into workwear, I also bounced around until I found Iron Heart. This Forum is just another reason to love this brand. I think you'll also find that the Crew is some of the best ever and will go above and beyond when helping you with Iron Heart gear. P.S. are those the 25oz black/blue XHSIB jeans you're wearing in the above pic? They look awesome!
