Do you have any iron heart xhs? If so, would love to hear a comparison
I don't.

If it helps, I have The Strike Gold SG 7104 & SG 9903. I love all three, but they are very different. The SG7104 are very slubby but tapered. The Samurai and SG9903 are very hard, thick, higher-rise and straight leg, but not as slubby. I am still breaking in the Samurai. It's going to be a while. 😆

3SIXTEEN COTTON & LINEN KNIT T-SHIRTS​

Knit cotton and linen blend short sleeve t-shirts from 3sixteen are back in a new Natural Marled color. We’ve really been looking forward to this release since 3sixteen showed us samples last year. These things are essential for our spring fits and pair very well with a well worn pair of jeans.

SELF EDGE X HTC HAND-MADE STUDDED BELTS & KEY FOBS​

We’ve been carrying studded belts from Zip Stevenson’s Hollywood Trading Company for almost 15 years and thought it was time for a fresh collection. We’ve been working with the team over at HTC over the past year to develop three new belt styles and two key fobs, all hand made in their workshop in Los Angeles using full grain cowhide, snakeskin, and stringray. These are available now at all five of our stores.

Oh man, HTC... I need one of these just out of nostalgia, if nothing else. Still remember the days of visiting the HTC in Fred Segal in Santa Monica, back when Ron Herman was the best store in LA. it's been a minute. Or 25 years.

Hey @kiya
For the Rick vintage sneaks in overdyed foil stretch denim.
What is overdyed foil stretch denim and how does it compare to last season's version.
Also if I'm TTS 8 on brannock, 7.5 in chucks, 8.5 in Nikes & 8.5 in vans, do you think I should go for 41 or 42?

They're a lightly "foil" coated overdyed denim, compared to last seasons these aren't shiny at all and are much more matte looking.
I'd say you'd be a 41, the 42 will probably be too large for you.
