Dawson Denim
« on: June 30, 2017, 02:07:15 pm »
Hello,

I have heard a lot of good things about them on Heddels and other places. I am particularly interested in their wide-legged jeans.

Has anybody tried their jeans or other products? I would love to get a second opinion. :)

Thanks,
Sreeni

Follow-up question - On a scale of 1 to 10 (with IH being a 10), how would you rate their jeans construction?

Dawson Denim is a different proposition to Iron Heart.

Kelly and Scott make everything in-house, and they're a very small scale producer. It's more of a cottage industry. I haven't taken a close look at their jeans recently, but they're nicely finished. Their aprons are great.

Iron Heart is a bigger operation, and Haraki's ethos is to make the toughest and most stubborn denim around.

At the end of the day, I don't think that there's necessarily a qualitatively better jean. Dawson's might be a bit better finished, Iron Heart's is almost certainly more durable. Buy whichever you like, buy both. :D

Thanks @Graeme for your thoughts. I wouldn't be asking so many questions if I could buy all the jeans I liked. :)
