Drum roll for the big inaugural post... I've actually been a lurker here for some time, so I'm not completely ignorant - just a bit confused. On the advice of LA Guy, I scoped out some Iron Hearts and am just about sold, but saw something on their site that seemed to fly in the face of prevailing dry denim wisdom. Check this out: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/html/Worn634simages.htm# It says the pair pictured were worn five or six days a week for five months and "washed hard, inside out, once every couple of weeks". The consensus here, and everywhere else I've looked or asked, seems to be that this is dry denim sacrilege, and that a new pair should go unwashed for at least six months or so. Is this just because this pair are the heavier 21 oz. type? What's up? To wash or not to wash? Anyway, regardless of what I do with them once I get them, some sizing advice would be stellar. For reference, an Earnest Sewn Hutch in a 32 and a Nudie Slim Jim Dry in a 33 both fit me just about perfectly (I should point out that I don't actually own the Nudies, I only tried them on; I know they're great and all, but the stitiching is a little too in your face for me). Thanks lads.
