Lismore, in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales, Australia. About 30 minutes drive from Byron Bay. While I'd much prefer to live closer to the coast, I work at the local base hospital as an Obstetrician / Gynaecologist, and need to be nearby when on-call.

I've lived on the east coast of Australia all my life, except the year I was 14, when I lived with my father in Milan, Italy. He's 100% Milanese. My mum, who's Aussie, and I lived in Sydney until I was 8 before moving to a farm in Bilpin, a place in the Blue Mountains famous for it's apples. I moved to Lismore a few years after graduating from medical school.

The Northern Rivers is a beautiful area. I live 30 minutes south-west of some of the world's most beautiful beaches, and 30 minutes east of Nimbin, which is situated in a valley surrounded by majestic mountains, with a lot of hidden waterfalls and swimming holes scattered around the place. It's around 80 minutes drive to the Gold Coast, and 2 hours to Brisbane. The area has a very eclectic population, with a thriving local arts culture and markets weekly.

I love raw denim because it's a slow work-in-progress. I have generally favoured unsanforized, super slubby denim, ala Oni and Pure Blue Japan. My pair of IH-666S-142od are the least slubby, but most resilient, jeans I own. My other interests include growing entheogenic cacti, plaiting whips and drinking whiskey, especially sweet, smoky peated Islay whiskey.

Welcome @flooded and thanks for the great intro. How do you feel the IH jeans compare to the ONI/PBJ jeans? I'm always amazed at how a straightforward design (the five pocket jean) can be expressed in so many ways and how these brands manage to imprint their aesthetic on every product they make.

Hi All,

Newbie here, I'm Mike and I'm based in Staffordshire UK. I'm just getting into Iron Heart denim and looking forward to learning more about them.

I purchased my first pair direct from"IMG_20190627_203633.jpg""IMG_20190627_203629.jpg""IMG_20190627_203650.jpg""IMG_20190627_204242.jpg""IMG_20190627_204110.jpg""IMG_20190627_203841.jpg""IMG_20190627_203655.jpg""IMG_20190627_203234.jpg""IMG_20190627_203229.jpg" Iron Heart last week. I made a newbie mistake with my measurements and my jeans don't fit  :'(

I purchased the IH-666S-18 £266 waist is 31.2 tag size 32 with hemmed inseam of 29.5 inches. Can anyone advise if it's ok to sell them on here? If it is what do I need to do?

Best Regards,

Mike

@MRD71 hi there and welcome.

We have an active Marketplace with buying/selling, trading and want to buy threads. You'll find them here:

https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php#c3

Please do read the guidelines for these threads before posting. They aren't complicated or annoying but they can save time, effort and occasionally trouble.

Sorry to hear the first purchase didn't go as planned. Before you sell, what are the issues? Judging from the photo's they are longer than your older pair and possibly smaller in the waist?

Otherwise, please do explore the product threads of things you're interested in. If you don't find the info you're looking for then ask away either on the specific threads or here: https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=231.0

Thanks for the guidance. The jeans do look to long but they are ok, the rise has potentially made them look longer. The waist and thighs are to small. Even though the dimensions of my other jeans matched closely the slim cut was impossible to get over my chunky thighs. I have purchased another model with a looser cut.

Bare in mind that the waist will stretch quite a bit, an inch or more if necessary. It is often desirable to start with a tight waist. Tight thighs are a bigger problem as there is less stretch to be had. People have different tolerance levels too. Did you soak the IH-666S?

Hi,

I purchased the jeans on 24/06/19 and received them yesterday, they haven't been soaked and are way too tight to. The point where they restrict me from raisong my legs. I can't even button them up. I have spoken to Chesson at Iron Heart today and we both agree they aren't going to stretch enough so it's best to list for sale.

Thanks. :)

In terms of construction quality, I think Iron Heart are as good as jeans get. I also like the 666 cut more than pretty much any other pair of jeans I own.

I like interesting things done with denim, and only own 2 pairs of indigo warp/white weft jeans. I have a pair of grand indigo dyed Flat Head, made out of their 16 ounce denim which fades with FH's signature vertical lines. My other pair of blue/white jeans are a pair of PBJ KS-013, which until my recent weight loss were a little tight, so haven't seen a lot of wear. All my other pairs of jeans are (among others) double indigo, indigo/black, indigo/purple, kakishibu/indigo, and of course indigo overdyed black. While I still love and wear super slubby, unsanforized denim for the incredible fades it produces, I've found that it tends to wear through much quicker due to it's rough character, and is nowhere near as resilient as the IH's.

The first 3 pics below are of the Flat Head 'Last Corl' after around 8 months of wear with a couple of soaks and 2 machine washes. You can see the vertical fading I mentioned. The last 2 pics are a pair of Oni 516-IDID after around 6 months of wear with 2 soaks. As you can see the denim is incredibly rough, producing some interesting fades, but also, starting to wear through where the corner of the phone sticks out.
