Our medium/high rise tapered cut in 14.7oz recycled Japanese selvedge denim. This denim is created by mixing 40% regular cotton with 60% recycled cotton (offcuts from previously made Iron Heart jeans). Because the short fibres of the recycled cotton don't hold indigo as well as our regular cotton, we decided to dye the weft an earthy brown - deepening the overall colour of the fabric. The shorter fibres of the recycled material also result in a rough and slightly fluffy surface texture, so we have arrived at a denim that has its own unique look and feel.
All measurements are specific to this product. The best way to determine the size you need is to find a similar item that fits you well, then measure the same way we do (see "How We Measure" tab) and compare with the measurements on the table below. Actual measurements for the same Iron Heart item/tag size can vary somewhat so if a specific dimension is important to you (for example arm length) please ask us to check this before we ship by adding a note to your order. Measurements for raw denim garments are pre-soak (allowance must be made for shrinkage).
