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!
