Looks very good on you, @ton312 .  The harder you wear it the better.

Thanks! Man it’s unvelievably stiff. I’m going to abuse it to the best of my ability in the coming months. Fit feels great, it’s noticeably trimmer in the sleeves than my 526pj and IH-77. Hopefully they’ll give a little with wear.

^ very nice indeed. I want one too.
I was going to wait for the blanket lined equivalent but that’s down the road enough to hopefully have each one. This stuff is addictive!

The denim will soften with wear, for sure.

The addictive nature of this gear is the reason why I don’t have one of these despite  having wanted one since they came out. Truth is there is barely a jacket IH makes that I’m not at least theoretically partial too l and I have more than I could ever hope to use to death already.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here but in real life this jacket is even better than on the already fantastic pics... and it's endangered.

I was able to grab the last XL and it just showed up today. Nope, it's not going back!

I think XL was the right choice for me. I'm 6'1" 175-ish and the fit is perfect. Arm length is good, shoulders feel good, can button it up without it feeling too constraining.

This is my first foray into the Iron Heart brand or heavy denim for that matter. This jacket is tough! Impressed with the quality and look forward to wearing it often.

Someday when it's broken in more I'll check back with pics.

I've been wearing this pretty often for the last month and some change. Hand washed it once. It's finally starting to soften up and stretch a bit. These are not easy to break in, but worthwhile.

Also have to say this thing is a head turner. People look twice and one of my co-workers came up and just started touching it for no reason. My dad even liked it, he wore a lot of Lee Rider jackets back in his day.

That red stitching on the inside is a phenomenal touch.

Nice to see an encore of this beauty! Been just rocking it today (or trying to in the warm weather).

These measurements make me anxious about the upcoming Stormrider jacket - would you veterans expect the blanket lined jacket to have some more room? I couldn't fit anything other than a T-shirt under the XXXL 101J and really hope to get another layer under the Stormrider.

I suspect you will only find out when the new Storm Rider will hit IHUK (which might be soonish) and measurements will be posted.

No way to tell. Firstly, different iterations of the same design come up differently for a whole load of reasons. This is true of shirts, jeans, sweats, you name it.

Secondly, the blanket lining is a game changer. Sometimes lined items are made to account for the thickness (the IHJ-50 for example) other times you have to size up (the Ihsh-105 and 106). We don’t know how this will go.

Fingers crossed for you.
