    Breaking news: Iron heart recently introduced new organic cotton jeans under their Triple Works label Advertized as “grown from non genetically modified plants”, they state that it “promotes and enhances biodiversity and biological cycles”
    Jeans + picture from Ironheart website: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/triple-works/tw-634n.html
    These are fine jeans to be sure….
    Keep in mind that all Iron Heart products are GMO-free; it’s interesting that they are advertizing that fact now…

    I'd love to get a pair of those organic ironhearts, but why did they have to put such a retarded looking stitching on the back pocket? And the red vertical "W" to top it off?! Organic jeans don't need any gimmicks and I have no interest in buying them now.

    Here's another company don't know if you listed it already but all they make are tight skinny jeans:

    I need some regular, classic, straight, or relaxed fits without gimmicks. Shouldn't be so damn hard to find, but it is.

    Now look at these Old Blue Denim Organics:

    Seriously, WTF is this stitching? No wonder most organic jean companies go out of business. [​IMG]

    Nudie's stitching may be the worst too. [​IMG]

    You can remove the stitching pretty easily with a seam ripper.

    hmm.. without compromising the denim or leaving a ghost impression?

    The ironheart jeans look the best to me but that red "W" looks densely stitched multiple times.

    Haven't done it myself, but loads of people on here/Superfuture/etc remove pocket stitching as a regular thing. But yeah, you probably couldn't take out the red "W".

    Yeah, at $300 for the pair they're about $75 overpriced anyways and that's without defaced pockets. I didn't even know Ironheart was a member here, much less a devoted thread till today. No disrespect if reading this but somebody's gotta tell it like it is.

    I previously said that I thought Iron Heart uses Supima (US pima) cotton because it was pretty much the only American long staple variety to use, but it turns out they don’t… It’s actually a super rare American variety virtually unknown to commercial cotton growers and, of course, it’s of unbelievably excellent quality.
    Here’s a visual:

    Iron Heart seems to be very protective of this kind of information; the name is not available to me. It appears to be a secret… Iron heart denim is simply unbelievable though. Really next level stuff.

    Neil Young is very involved with this issue. Word on the street is that he won't buy GM clothing, strictly organic which is nice to be able to do. He also spreads much love for sustainability and local agriculture. His new album, The M0nsanto Years is really great and worth a listen.

    By the way, here is something really cool. PuraKai is a company out of San Diego that makes organic clothing from extra long fiber cotton and now some other materials as well such as recycled plastic bottles. They make the clothing locally in Ca and even use local materials. I got a hold of a couple Ca grown organic cotton shirts a while back and the quality is excellent.

    Colors, fabric, and detailing is great as well:
