I live in Bartlett IL. I was born in Warsaw, Poland, and I have been living in America since 1989 when I came here as teenager. I love travel, motorcycles and great quality clothing.

Hi and my regards from Ugchelen in The Netherlands....

At 61 years I'm not new to denim, by I am a novice to Iron Heart. Thought I'd dive right in and am wearing a 634XHS right now.

And I love it. I had the idea it would be a stiff and scratchy one to break in, but it's actually quite comfy from the start. Off course it's a heavy basterd, but I'm loving it....

Hope to find inspiration overhere to get more IH in my collection ....  ;)

Welcome @Sieger I am glad to hear you're enjoying the 25oz denim!

If you're after inspiration, the 'What Are You Wearing Today' thread is a great place to start.

You can find it right here. :)

HI IH

Another Dutchie ^ , half the age of Sieger but also novice to IH and living in Dordrecht..

4 years ago I competed in the DWC with local brand Tulp Jeans,
Last 2 years been wearing the Samurai S710NBK, which was hard as the cotton threading is horrible imho.
So figured, for next 2 years I go for the brand with the reputation of truly being workwear quality.

Just ordered a pair of IH-777s-21 and can't wait for them to arrive..

I enjoy fades as an artform, I front-pocket carry and prefer small cuffs and short inseam (ankle height), but considering to get some stacks on my IH's if it suits...

Hi @Sieger
When I read you're from Ugchelen, I imagined it would be a town in Limburg...
How wrong I was  :D

Anyway, welcome!

@tjarco welcome. I'll be interested in hearing your experience with the 21oz, and how you find the jeans compared to your Sammies.

Hi

I am from Birmingham and recently did a Marie Kondo job on my wardrobe and I found few items that I truly loved.

I am rebuilding my jeans wardrobe and looking to find a slim tapered jeans.  And decent western shirts.  The forums are great and I hope to add my two cents and make it better.  Welcome all denim lovers (and leather jacket lovers too (I count myself as one).

Welcome @Denim dunce .. have you picked up any IH yet? Sounds like the 777 or 555 should be on your radar.

Hi neph

They both are!  I am torn between them.  Just the hem is the sticking point.  I find the best jeans I own have a leg opening of 7 inches.  However, I will have to shorten them when I get them and I have worn the hell out of them for a year.  After I have them tailored will the opening be even bigger than the measurements on the website. Maybe I can get some second hand ones and see how they feel? I know there will be some variation between them.  Decisions decisions!!!

Depending on the taper you will increase the hem opening a little but it is really marginal.

The 777 will increase a little more than the 555 as the latter tapers mostly through the thigh and is relatively straight from the knee down, while the 777 tapers all along the length of the leg.

Welcome! It’s always wonderful to see folk from New Mexico show up here. I joined the forum back in 2011 while at UNM, and have been back and forth from Burque to Santa Fe ever since. Never seen anyone else wearing Iron Heart in real life tho, what about you? Enjoy it here, this is a special place!

Here was my chill spot while at school. I miss hiking Sandia

Waiting for the time when I can finally say, that this has all been wonderful, but now I’m on my way...Phish
