is this model in the same family as the pronto PIH family ? I have the PIH-5DCS and they are the best pair of Iron hearts I have worn (so far)
The PIH jeans are cuts made for Pronto. They are based on different IH cuts. So the if the PIH code ends in a T it’s a tapered cut based on the 555 ( but with a lower rise like the 777). Your PIH-5DCS are a slim straight cut based on the 666 cut. So all 666 variants will be similar to your PIH-5DCS but not to the other PIH cuts.

This is a perfect example of the contrast stitching looking great on the double Indigo! I’m not a fan of it in a fresh pair because I think it stands out too much. But on a well worn and faded pair it looks great!!


Exactly my feeling. Same goes for the double Indigo duck. The II denim looks really great faded btw.
I don't care what people say.. The Max Power way is the right way...

And the denim is different.....18oz versus 25oz

Plus the weft of the 25oz in hank dyed and will be much more resistant to fading than the rope dyed weft of the II denim no?

@Giles
Should I be sad that these jeans are Endangered? 

These are my favorite jeans!  Especially after traveling in them through New Zealand and Fiji for three weeks, the whiskers have developed nicely along with a stench that wafts from a few feet away . . .

I'm sad that they are endangered, can't believe that they got so little love, we could not keep them going...

Oh the joys of this time of year…

Hit the deck after encountering some black ice on the way to work last week. It was the keys wot did it (I wear them on my belt loop, tucked into back pocket), but it's still worth it, cycling in my IHs, as they're windproof, look totally rad, and (I like to think) an appropriate counterpoint to the sea of lycra that washes up to surround me at the traffic lights :)

On the plus side, it does give me a tangible excuse to start nosing around for my next pair (those 888s look v appealing)…

Any thoughts on whether repairs/darn are necessary? Don't really want a wee hole to grow into a bigger one, if I can help it. Needless to say, the bomb-proof denim is only really punctured in two places [the two obvious, bigger holes you see] and the pocket lining in only one of those).

Either way I like that they've earned their first proper 'smite'!

You could leave it. I put the business end of 6mm thick wood screw through the upper thigh/lower arse area of a pair of 21oz 301’s about three years ago and haven’t done a thing. It may have gotten slightly bigger, but I don’t think so.

The 888s are great btw ;)

I recently received a pair of these in 33" from Rivet and Hide as basically a pair to hold onto because I like the material so much.  The waist measures 34.5" and since they're "lightly sanforized," might stretch past 34.5" post soak.

My 34" pair has begun to fade because I was wearing them so much even in the summer.  What's my point?  I don't actually have one.

I just figured that I would post some "last days & l last rites" of these before I pass them on. 6 months of wear, 5 times/week.
