The Iron Heart 301s-07BK Jean & Short Sleeve Summer Shirts
We've had Iron Heart make up a very small run of the 301s Slim jean in an overdyed 19oz unsanforized denim.
This is the same denim which was used on the SEXIH07 jean, but done in a slim cut.
Also in is a set of summer weight short sleeved chambray shirts, one is in it's natural light blue state and the other has been overdyed black.
Along with those two new shirts Iron Heart has done a short sleeve version of their Heavy Weight Chambray Shirt.
These jeans and all three new short sleeve shirts are available now at SESF, SENY, and in our online store. Only 60 pairs of the 301s-07BK were produced.
Check the online store for a complete spec list and explanation of the fabrics:
What do you guys think of the fit of these f310's? The waist has probably a half inch of room, but the thighs and calves are a bit larger than I generally prefer (although this might change after a good hem). I've never worn or soaked unsanforized jeans before, so I have almost no idea how these are supposed to look right now. These are pre-washed pics:
They don't look bad to me, but again I guess it depends on the fit you are aiming for. IIRC my 380s shrunk down a good deal after soaking. I would also let the leg down a little bit at the bottom for some stacking. See how it looks after a soak, if you are not happy just resell. If you are weary a soak might not be enough, return for something else...
Those are pre-soak? What size did you get? TTS? If those haven't been soaked yet, they have a fair amount of shrinkage left esp in the thighs... i think you'll be just fine
***On a second note, i got the light blue short sleeve IH chambray and need to soak/wash it... i've never washed raw shirts before. I def need it to shrink though so do i just toss it in a tub of hot tap water for an hour and then hang dry like i do jeans? Buttoned/inside out or anything else i should take into consideration?
