Some of the pocket stitching is not parallel, some of the internal finishing is less than perfect and some of the pattern alignment is off.

My stance is that I can't force anyone to send them back, but both Haraki and I will be extremely unhappy if we have Iron Heart garments out there with known issues. 

A lot of the shirts are perfectly alright. So when you get your shirt take a good look at it and if you have a good one, let's talk.

Damn, I was so looking forward to pick up that shirt, when returning from vacation tomorrow evening. :(

I'll get back to you about the pickup tonight or tomorrow, when I'm back home.

@Giles Wasn't this shirt doomed from the start? Wasn't the color different from what you'd envisioned in the first place? Either way, I'm so sorry to hear that you've found yourself in this unenviable position. That sort of decision is never an easy one to make, but you know it's the only decision to make. I remember sitting in the now closed Apple Bar in NYC with you, and you made me take my shirt off to show me the inside. You told me that the finishing is perfect on the inside and that the shirt would look just as good worn inside-out. I'll never forget that, and the level of pride that it showed me about Iron Heart and its products. I know it sucks, but I applaud you for maintaining that level of excellence. I always say, and I firmly believe, that you can't teach people pride.

@seawolf The colour was not exactly what I had envisioned when I saw it in the photos, but when it turned up here, I was delighted with how it looked....

Oh shit - that sucks!   :o
This must be a lot of logistic effort, etc. to rectify this all.

But that's a good example for the difference between IH and any other XY Brands. --- Respect!

Financial also.

I applaud all @ IH for holding their standards so high and doing the right thing. This is when standards are really seen. So sorry to read, but even prouder to own the IH I do

Any chance of posting the measurements of these shirts? This was my first IH shirt, and I have tried it on for size as suggested either here or in the workshirt thread. As the product page is dead, would be handy to know what the (actual) measurements are,  rather than me measuring them probably inaccurately!
It's going to be pretty hard to part with....

This could be a collector's item  :P!
It is never good something like this gets out the door.  But it is the action a retailer / brand takes in the aftermath that defines brand.  This is the right decision.

Absolutely love the fabric on this shirt.  So soft, and the color is incredible.  Was super stoked to have found a decent replacement for the blue 06 that I sold away awhile ago.

Bummed to be sending it back, but so much credit to G, H, and the Iron Heart crew.  The steadfast sticking to such high standards of quality is just one of the many things I love about this brand...
