Similiar?  Looks like a carbon copy, only brushed, but I hear you on their wonky ass fits. 
I do like the idea of proprietary/exclusive patterns and that the 'inventor' of a pattern would be rewarded with a copyright (and in an ideal world, enforced justly).

If nothing else, we'd end up with more innovation and kick ass shirts!

no disagreement there. I've just come to the conclusion that fabrics/patterns aren't always exclusive and that companies will borrow from time to time. the upcoming SS18 IHSH-201, for example, is a carbon copy of a pattern that was released by both 3sixteen and Studio D'artisan. Not a knock against IH as I happen to like the pattern, but it's not exclusive. I'm guessing in order for a company to acquire exclusive fabrics they have to meet a certain amount of yardage requirements which would be costly.

WTB:
IHSH-129 size L (blue and green)
IHSH-107 red size L
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-86 green size XL
633S-OD size 33

The fabric for the IHSH-129 was not an Iron Heart designed fabric, nor did we claim it was.  Haraki found it in a tiny mill, liked it and bought it.  The fabric for  IHSH-201 and IHSH-196 was designed from first principles by Haraki.  A red/black buffalo check from various companies looks the same in photos, you pick up a UHF and then you know it's different.

If you buy an IHSH-201 and then actually compare it side by side with another similar looking shirt and it indeed a carbon copy, I'll eat one.

Sorry.  IHSH-129 and IHSH-193 same fabric, same mill, same story (different colourway)....

I stand corrected. The colors are close but the pattern is more refined with the IH version.

What's worse than being sick?  Having a sick infant.  Nothing life threatening, but man it sucks.

^+1...not an infant, but my 2yr old girl has had the stomach all week. Has been throwing up for 5 days straight. Since it’s a virus, all that can be done is to just wait it out.

Grateful it’s nothing serious as there are kiddos who have died of this seasons flu, but man it sucks....talk about powerless.
You won’t be satisfied until you wear Iron Heart.

Yep.  Our 7 month old had a pertussis (Whooping Cough) exposure over Christmas.  Super stressful.  Thankfully she had just finished her last round of vaccines and we were able to get her on antibiotics before she had symptoms.  Like the flu, it's another one of those that you can't do much after a round of antibiotics and it can easily hospitalize infants and unfortunately some pass from it every year, mostly because they are unvaccinated.

To say the last few weeks has been stressful is putting it lightly.  Fortunately she seems to be coming out of the woods now.

Because it mostly is, there is no Place on the Interweb that knows better what I care about, but IG keeps ignoring everything. The recommended Posts Section seems to be more off everytime they change the System/Algorythem, I couldn´t care less about the Fitness Lifestyle or what Sneaker Nike released.

I hide ALL the ads on ig and fb. Might be a waste of my time to go through the extra clicks, because they're never going to go away, but I do it on principle.

That & the pissing algorithm that shows me posts from days ago. Why they had to screw around and change it.
