    Kiya,

    Thanks a lot for the response. I'm gonna pick up the smaller size as you suggested.

    Get a size 36, they'll sit lower than your waist because they're not a high-rise jean...

    If you're a size 34 in flat heads (I have F310), would you be the same in iron heart? i hear they stretch a bit.

    Yes, you'd be the same exact size.

    I was at Take 5 to try some IH634s. They stock them in one-wash. I was told that they will not shrink much, if at all, since they are of the one-wash variety.

    Tried a tag 36"waist. Feels just a tad roomy. They did not have tag 34" waist for me to try. Should I wait for tag 34" waist to come in before making my final choice?

    My actual waist is 35".

    Do not buy the 36, buy a size 34, you'll be far happier with the fit down the line.
    I think there was some confusion.. there is no such thing as "one-wash" Iron Heart..

    Iron Heart 301S Slim Selvedge & 9301 Slim Super Black Jeans

    After ten years of producing the most intensely heavy weight jeans in the world, Iron Heart has introduced their first slim cut jean. This is answer for anybody looking for a slim jean that will last far longer than any other jean in the world.

    The 301S by Iron Heart is their newest flagship slim model with the silhouette designed by both Self Edge and Iron Heart; finally bringing their signature 21 ounce selvedge denim to a slim cut jean with a longer inseam than Iron Heart's past models. These are made with hand picked Zimbabwe Cotton that is known for it's unusually long fibers which give this denim a super soft hand. Due to the slim cut of the jean, there is no selvedge out-seam, but the denim itself is the usual 21oz selvedge denim that Iron Heart produces.

    Also available is the 9301, a 22 ounce black denim version of the 301S with black stitch, black arcuates, black leather tag, and a red outseam inner stitch.

    Iron Heart denim is known for it's ultra sheen and extreme durability due to it's heavy weight. Almost any other company attempting to produce denim this heavy would end up with a very stiff and rigid fabric, where as Iron Heart's denim is suprisingly pliable considering it's weight.

    Photographed and modeled by Sidney Lo.

    These are now available in-store and in our online store from sizes 28 to 38 in both black and indigo. Check the online store for more photos, specs, and measurements:

    I'm just curious, why does the slim cut of the jean mean no selvedge? (I'm only asking because I love when you dudes in the biz drop some knowledge )

    Because of the way the leg has been slimmed down from both the inner and outer sides of the leg body the selvedge cannot be retained because it's a curved line on both sides of the leg.

    Because almost all of Dior's jeans that were designed by Hedi have a completely straight outer leg.
    Trust me, i'd know, i've completely taken apart over 10 different pairs of DH jeans over the past three years.

    Quick question about the hickory stripe IH shirt. I've been wearing it nonstop since I ordered one almost a year ago. Haven't washed it yet, but it definitely needs a wash now.

    It fits absolutely perfectly right now. How can I wash this without shrinking? It's a 100% cotton so I guess the dryer is out of the question? How much will a super hot soak and some soap shrink this thing?

    Kiya, do you have any experience with shrinkage on the hickory stripe shirt? If it shrinks at all it will be too small. It fits absolutely perfectly right now.

    If you love the shirt and don't want it to shrink at ALL don't take any chances, just dry clean it.

    Thanks for the advice. Kind of a pain in the ass, but I guess that's what I'll have to do.


    Anyone here have experience with washing the IH hickory stripe shirt? Any shrinkage?

    They should make 40oz denim. Or better yet, they should make some shirts made out of wood, or steel wool. They should make fuckin armour shirts and pants, or concrete plated jackets. Next level. EPIC FADEZ
