    Would anyone happen to know how the T-shirts are like? Mainly curious about the weight and the fit

    I have a couple of IH t-shirts. Like their jeans, their t-shirts are heavier than average. As a matter of fact, I would probably say that their t-shirts are the heaviest that I've owned before. They feel really solidly constructed, too.

    The fit is pretty average. I would not say that they are slim cut Ts. Like most Japanese brands, they run about one size smaller than their Western equivalents (I wear a size L in most Western brands but am an XL in IH).

    Thanks for the help! Was just wondering as I flicked through Self Edge's online site.

    Iron Heart Beatle Buster OD and SBG Jeans & 12oz Denim Workshirt

    We've just received two new jeans from Iron Heart, both in the Beatle Buster fit but in new denim.
    Along with the new jeans we've gotten a small run of their new selvedge denim workshirt. This shirt has a great fit to it and due to the shade and feel of the denim it looks as though this may age faster than denim shirts we've carried in the past.

    One of the jeans is an overdyed version of the original Beatle Buster and the other is a Super Black jean that fades to gray over time. We've seen a few pairs of these that have been worn for a few months and the denim has aged very well.

    Both of these jeans along with the workshirt and a full restock of all Iron Heart jeans, belts, and jackets are available now in our online store and at all three Self Edge stores Check out the product pages in our online store for full spec lists, measurements, and hi-res photos of all the new jeans and shirt.

    Shop Iron Heart!

    Self Edge x Iron Heart = SEXIHXINDO16 - Forever Two Wheels

    The new SEXIHXINDO16 jean is a collaboration between Self Edge and Iron Heart with a nod to our Indonesian clients. There is a strong denim and vintage loving community in Indonesia and we wanted to make a jean for them with one of their favorite brands. Everything from the fabric to the fit to the leather patch was made with the Indonesia community in mind.

    We're proud to have a reach that far around the world and this is our way of recognizing their dedication to vintage style American garments.

    The fabric is a heavyweight unsanforized denim which is exclusive to Self Edge and was developed for us for the SEXIH07 jean. It was the first time Iron Heart had done an unsanforized denim, it ages with extreme contrast and great character that rivals the best Japanese denim available today. With a silhouette that we designed to fit every body type we've decided to do these in a wide range of sizes due to it's extremely versatile fit.

    THE SEXIHXINDO16 JEAN WILL GO ON SALE AT NOON (LOCAL TIME) AT ALL SELF EDGE STORES ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24TH. THEY WILL GO ON SALE IN THE ONLINE STORE AT 10AM (PDT) THE SAME DAY.

    Check the online store for a full spec list, measurements, shrinking info, and more:

    What is everyone's experience with IH denim and the washing process? Does washing help with the break in process or cause them to shrink? Recently purchased a pair of 461's and want to "loosen" them up a little. Any advice?

    Iron Heart Mock-Twist Shirts, Micro-Cord Shirt, and 25oz Jeans

    We've started to receive shirts and jeans from Iron Heart's Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
    Starting it off is a set of mock-twist fabric shirts available in both red and black. The fabric has a nice heft to it and the body is triple-stitched for durability.

    Next up is our favorite fall shirt to hit the store yet. It's a black micro-cord shirt which has a double woven weft so the inside feels very smooth and the fabric is windproof even though it's light-weight. The outside is so soft it feels like velvet, super flavorful indeed.

    We've also got their new 25oz denim jeans made of a dark indigo sanforized selvedge fabric. These are available in both the 634 (straight leg) cut and the 666 (slim leg) cut.

    Along with these new items all the stores have received full restocks of all Iron Heart jeans, jackets, and belts.

    All these items are available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store, there will be no restock of these shirts or jeans. Check the online store for spec lists, measurements, and hi-res photos:

    That model is a collaboration with a Scottish retailer called Aero Leathers, so it won't be available anywhere in the US. You can get it from ironheart.co.uk, though, they accept payment in US dollars and have free international shipping for jeans.

    Iron Heart Super Heavy Shirts & More

    Every year Iron Heart does a new batch of heavy weight shirts for the colder months, this year they've gone up a step by offering a wider range of shirts. We've received four shirts from them this week, three of which are great for keeping warm.

    First we have the Blanket Lined 8oz Denim Overshirt, it's an early 1970's style lighter shade of denim that's cotton flannel lined with the the original Troy blanket lining pattern dyed into the flannel. The sleeves are also quilted with satin for warmth and comfort. The shirt has hand-pockets and two snap-buttoned chest pockets. We love this thing and couldn't wait to get it into the stores when we first saw the samples in Tokyo.

    Next up we've got two heavy flannel shirts in solid colors, both with hand pockets and two buttoned chest pockets. This shirt is available in both black and navy.

    Finally we've received Iron Heart's take on a wabash fabric shirt. They start with an indigo dyed cotton yarn that's later discharge printed with the dots to create the wabash pattern. This shirt fits great and has a nice heft to it without being bulky or uncomfortable.

    All four of these shirts along with a restock of the Beatle Buster, 301s, 634s, and all other Iron Heart jeans, jackets, vests, belts, bracelets, and cordovan mid-length wallets is available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the online store for more photos, specs, and measurements.

    Self Edge x Iron Heart x Leather Soul x Alden = SEXIHXLSXA13

    For the first time we've come together with another retail store to collaborate on a product. We've come together with Leather Soul to design a set of jeans and boots from two of our favorite brands which compliment each other in both design and fit.
    We've done a pair of jeans from Iron Heart using a new denim designed for this project and a pair of boots from Alden available in two colors.

    The Iron Heart jeans are a classic 5-pocket jean with a medium rise and a straight leg with a slight taper that's flattering above the knee all the way up the back, also there's very little taper so the jean looks great with boots. The jean is completely stitched together with dark indigo thread, so while being a 5-pocket jean made of an indigo denim it's easily dressed up because of the lack of contrast stitching. For the jean we had Iron Heart produce us the darkest denim they've made that's still indigo (blue) colored in a new 23oz weight, the denim is sanforized and therefore even due to it's heavy weight, it's still comfortable.
    This jean looks and feels amazing in person, Iron Heart nailed every aspect of the jean that we had requested to have made for us. The denim warp threads are so saturated with indigo dye that it's looking like a jean that will look amazing with some wear due to how the fabric will age over time.

    The boots are designed to be versatile in both comfort and utility but also are able to be dressed up or down easily due to the detail, leather, and sole choice.
    The Alden boot has a "faux" cap toe, a style Leather Soul has named the "conservation boot." This style was made in the 1940's when leather was scarce due to rationing and wartime shortages. Instead of a traditional cap toe, this "faux" cap toe style was used to give the look of a cap toe without using extra leather and the stitching is done by hand.
    The boot is made on Alden's Trubalance last, has a tan Goodyear rubber wedge sole, and is available in black regina calf leather or Horween natural Chromexcel.

    The Alden boots are available at Leather Soul Waikiki and Leather Soul Beverly Hills starting Saturday, February 18th. Orders via email are accepted by emailing Leather Soul through their website.

    The Iron Heart jeans will go on sale at all Self Edge stores at noon (local time) on Saturday, February 18th. The jeans will also go on sale at 9am (PST) the same day in our online store.

    Check the online store for a full spec list on the jeans, measurements, hi-res photos, and more.

    Iron Heart Sparkly Western Shirts, Moto T-Shirt, 634s-B Overdyed, & More

    We've just received a couple of awesome new Iron Heart shirts with a special fabric that has a sparkle to it in the sunlight. It was difficult to photograph these to properly show off the fabric. This new Iron Heart shirt is available in black and red.

    We've also received a new loopwheeled t-shirt with a great print on the front and back with a black cotton body. Along with the new tee and shirts we've received a new run of the 634s-B Overdyed Straight Leg Jean which is only done about once every year or two.

    These three new shirts and the 634s-B are available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store along with a full restock of the 634s, 9634 Super Black, 461 jeans, and all denim jackets and vests.
