Iron Heart Semi-Anonymous
« on: September 16, 2015, 03:53:05 pm »
Didn't see a specific thread for this so I figured I'd start one.  I was thinking last night that some, or a lot, of you may have a really cool story or some good insight on what turned you on to Iron Heart.  Not just how you heard about it, more so what about it made you 'addicted' to it? 

I, like many others, admired the brand from a distance for quite awhile but always had sticker shock, "How is that shirt $300+?!  It can't be that good or that much better than this $200 one."  After a whole lot of drooling over a number of IH pieces I ordered my first piece, the IHSH-85 from Self Edge.  I had owned a number of well made shirts prior to this IH piece but I couldn't believe how great the cut was and how strong the shirt felt......  Then I got my hands on one of the flannels, in my opinion the most standout pieces of the IH lineup. 

There are a number of other brands making incredibly well constructed items out of awesome fabrics so the competition is steep.  But, I personally have never owned another flannel that can come close to competing with an IH one.  The combination of the weight, hand, construction, and fit make it something very special.  If someone was to ask me advice on everything from socks to jackets I would rattle off a number of different brands for each item.  But, when it comes to flannels I would list one option, IH.

Ultimately I think IH in a lot of ways represents something my dad always says, "you get what you pay for."  That was my thought process when I bought my first IH shirt and that's what I tell people when they ask me about my experience with IH.

End Ramble.

or in my words:
IH stands for Quality, Longevity and perfect with details.
There is nothing left to be added  :)

Mine was a long journey. Got interested in fashion around 13, through punk music. Wore tiger of London plaid pants with zippers and leather jackets I spent weeks painting and studding for years. By the time I turned 16-17 I got interested in mainstream fashion, I remember getting my first job at 16 and saving a months worth of paycheck a for a Louis Vuitton wallet. Around 18 I found nudie jeans and saw you weren't supposed to wash them and through those found self edge and through that found super future and through that found visvim and did that for many years. In the past year I started lifting weights and working out a lot more and no longer fit a lot of Japanese brands but couldn't bring myself to wear any American fashion, so I tried out IH just a few months ago for the first time, and I'm hooked. Every piece I receive blows me away.
