They will be examined, talked about, deconstructed, bits of them appear in a different form and then we'll probably rerun the fabric and rerelease Dec, Jan, Feb.  Timing still TBD.

Just a thought, maybe take some of the ones that don't have the quality issues and dip them in indigo!

Our latest position on this:

We haven’t made any firm decisions yet, but hoping that the fabric will be remade and the shirt released again, but not yet set in stone and timeframe is likely to be end of 2015 or early 2016. Anyone who bought a shirt this time around will get opportunity to reserve/order first, that’s only fair.

Sorry we can’t give more definite info, but we have several other heavyweight cotton flannels due to be released this autumn, so we need to speak to Haraki-san and work out a sensible plan.

We can assure you, when we have news, it will be published here and we’ll contact all those who ordered and got disappointed.

I picked mine up from the UPS point 2 hours ago. The shirt is a perfect fit and the color and fabric is amazing.  :-*

The only imperfection I could make out is that the check pattern does not align perfectly at the side seams, but I do not own another IH Buffalo Ckeck shirt to do any compairs. So I don't know if this is normal or not.





You do ask a lot of me to send it back to you, you know that, don't you?  :( :-\ Any other company and I would just keep it, but I do respect and like you guys and gals to much not to honor the wish to get these out of circulation. It will be off to the UPS Point and on the way to IH UK tomorrow.

Oh, would you mind me posting the fit pics I took here, or will this be the Voldemort of the IH shirts?

The other buffalo checks also have those sideseams. And I fully agree on all your other points.

Re: overdying. I find it really hard to send that shirt back, not matter wether there are flaws or not (still haven't found any). But if the same shirts were sold without alteration besides overdying them, I think I'd feel preety mad. In that case, I might have bought a "good" shirt, send it back so that it can be resold in a colourway that I didn't want in the first place. And as it wasn't a flaw in the fabric or weave, overdying wouldn't solve the quality problems at all.

Yes, in retrospect, overdying was a silly idea.

I know its been said by quite a few of you guys and i too am quite stunned at the level of care, customer service and the desire and commitment to uphold the integrity and quality of Iron Heart. The whole story of the IHSH-101tg feels like the exact opposite of how i imagine it would be trying to return a high street branded shirt where you would most likely have to fight to; at best get your money back and at worst get a bloody credit note.

I can't think of any other brand that would do this. High street or high end. Take Visvim for example at the high end. Countless problems with the durability of their products and shoddy finishing. Not a chance in hell of them doing something like this.

At the moment I'm more in the mood to fight to keep my shirt, because it is gorgeous and I can not find a flaw other then what I mentioned above and which seems to be normal.

It makes me realy sad to send it back and is something I need to force myself to do it.  :(

I here you Cole and i certainly feel your struggle in parting with what seems to you to be a quality item. My feeling for you is; by letting go of this particular IH shirt, you will find yourself with another IH shirt, at a later date, that takes away the disappointment right now and replaces it with a deep satisfaction, happiness and feeling that you did the right thing and this pain was worth going through.
Its a tough break buddy
