DrPat, I like the way you're wearing a shirt underneath -- using the Wool Melton as a shirt jacket. I don't prefer that on me, I prefer a snugger fit...but it looks cool on you. The most I'll wear under any of my IH tops is a t-shirt or a banyan.

True Reeperbahn photo. Real ghetto. Tuff stuff. Shirt looks good.

I think the original idea for the Melton was to wear as an overshirt...which is why it's looser than other IH shirts...I also wear my melton over a button down many times

For instance, my Hickory Stripe and my Viyella fit perfectly over a tshirt...the Heavy Flannel and the Melton is considerably looser on me...enough so that I could wear a cashmere hoodie underneath it this weekend. All four are size L

You might want to size down if you're going to wear it as an actual shirt

I just looked on the Iron Heart Japan website and the Melton sizing is exactly like the quilted Chambray I already have. I love the way the Quilted Chambray XS fits me, but you're right DougNg -- it's a tad looser than the Heavy Black Denim. And they've also stretched out with wear, but I'm still thrilled with them. If the sizing chart on the website is correct, then I believe I'll be happy with the way the XS Melton fits me -- even as a shirt (not a shirt jacket). Giles, do you have any opinions about this ?

The Melton is the same size as all my IH shirts (Medium).  I can easily fit a button-up or thin IH flannel underneath.  The Heavy Ombre and Super Heavy Flannel are a bit more difficult to wear underneath because the cuffs of the Melton are not much wider than the cuffs of either of these.  There is no problem fitting the chest of the heavier shirts underneath.  I also wear the Melton with only a thin long-sleeve t-shirt underneath.

I typically wear the Melton over a T.  It works just fine.  I can wear it over a heavy chambray and that also works.  Before I took delivery of the Meltons, I asked Haraki if I could wear one over a chambray, he said "no they are the same size", he was suprised when in fact, I could

Interesting food for thought -- I value all of your opinions. Tfar, remember...I'm low maintenance and off-the-rack. I don't do tailors, nor do I ever tuck in shirts. So, all I say for now is, hmmmm.......

I've kinda given up on the ironheart.jp website. Their sizing is never correct. I've learned to trust Giles and Kiya when it comes to all sizing issues

hey everyone!

the melton shirt has become a favorite of mine. it looks great with some 634S's and flipflops. and a beatup old "kum-n-go" mesh trucker. i even like the cut pockets. i couldnt stand the idea, but in reality it keeps me from carrying my iphone and wallet in my shirt pockets so it drapes much better.

anyway, its been awhile since this subject has been broached but.....

i know there was talk of perhaps a run in black, but after seeing it and wearing it, i think black is unnecessary.

what about a melton in any other color? maybe for fall 2010?

red? yellow? baby blue?

HERMES ORANGE? (a light tangerine basically)

you tell me.

Whoa. If it was a real Hermes Orange I'd get one. What a fantastic idea! +1

They proved super duper popular.  We may do another run...G

I got this jacket on a whim, thinking I was going to use this for mostly casual wear, but this jacket is easily the most versatile jacket in my closet for both hanging out on the porch having a single malt with a bud or heading over to an inspection in my shirt and khakis

For those of you who don't have this jacket, you NEED one

Hmm, is this more of a jacket or shirt?
