I wish.
Unfortunately IH top blocks don’t work with my sizing.
Graham and I were sending packages back and forth for about a month but nothing worked. Ended up finding another brand that works beautifully for linebacker sized men

Good afternoon all, EdH here. I live in Gloucestershire, UK, but have lived in Leamington Spa, Coventry, Guildford, Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the UAE and Muscat in Oman. Got family in the UAE, USA and UK.

My only IH purchase to date is a IHSH-312-IND but I am looking for an excuse to get some denim. Intending to lose some weight around my middle this year - aren't we all in January? - which may provide a good reason for a little wardrobe refresh. I will need to try them on in person though as I powerlift so I need a roomy top block and thighs to accommodate my oversized butt. Also need to let the wallet recover from Christmas, so plenty of time to figure out why the wife and I need to travel to Portsmouth, London or Manchester and, hey, while we're here we can just swing by a store I want to pop into real quick...

Look forward to getting involved.

Good to have you here! 888 cut will be the place to start, the 1955 and 634 are other options depending on your waist/thigh ratio. There are some lufters who can get into 777’s too. Of course, personal taste plays a role.

While I understand the desire to try in person, IH (and the forum), have a lot of competence in finding the right fit for folks. In addition next day delivery and free returns in the UK make life easier.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,

Cheers neph. I was thinking the 888s are the way to go over the 777s as I prefer a higher rise. Size charts for the 888s look comparable to a pair that fit me ok already. Problem I find is that if I accommodate the thighs then the waist will be too baggy, but if I get something that fits the waist (or will give to fit the waist) then the thighs never quite get to comfortable.

But I’m in no rush. Got a couple of pairs of raw denim on the go with plenty of evo left in them. It was trying to make sense of my wardrobe by reducing to fewer, better pieces that started me down the rabbit hole that led here in the first place. After coveting Iron Heart stuff for this long - I’ve been lurking here and eyeing up the website for a good year or so - I can wait a bit longer! (Having said that the shirt is so great that I am now understanding what I’ve been missing!)

Depending on your sizing you may be in a tough spot. I can't fit into any of the normal runs of 634 or 888 anymore with a 35" waist and 26-27' thighs due to my my 43" hip/butt. I would recommend simply measuring your best fitting pair according to IH measurements and talk to the team via customer live chat. When I was going through several attempts, Graham was pulling stock and measuring everything, just ask and remember to do the measurements on the top blocks as that is where you will most likely end up having some issues as a lifter.

If you find nothing works - i have a couple brands in mind you can try too.

Hello all!  Checking in from Toronto, Canada.  Never been a member of a forum before, but I just grabbed the m-51 jacket and had such an amazing experience with Ross emailing just to make sure sizing and everything worked for me, I had to mention it.  Looking forward to getting the jacket.

I’ve enjoyed the UHF shirts, westerns, works and cpos for quite a while, but I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I only grabbed my first pair of denim jeans in 2020.  I was listening to the iron cast today (Congratulations to all!) and it reminded me of my experience.  I was in the market for some black jeans for work(kitchen work) and I typically order online.  A store in Toronto carries Iron Heart so I figured instead of another PBJ I’ll grab a pair.  Went and took a look in person and the hand feel of the jeans had me going crazy, I’m usually a slub guy, also I love 20+ in weight.  I had a pair of 777 14 oz -od in my hand, wow, this 14 oz jean feels like other brands 18-20, Giles was right sometimes you just have to feel the product.

Well that’s my long winded introduction, also as a Canadian I have the authority to say that Iron Heart’s black and red Buffalo check UHF is the best version of the best shirt ever made. Thanks guys and gals and looking forward to my next pair!  Cheers!

We love long-winded intros around here. Please ignore my question on the newbie thread, you answered it beautifully here.
