Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Iron Heart IH-888S-142BB in Black x Black is a newer cut made as a vintage-styled high rise version of a Relaxed Tapered fit with a roomy seat, moderate thigh, and a classically tapered leg to provide a moderate hem. This jean features the Iron Heart new signature 14 oz. medium weight, sanforized and once-washed right hand twill Japanese Selvedge Denim. This material is made with two twisted yarns to add structure to a "least heavy" weight fabric in a medium tension weave, which will become amazingly soft with a drape that will retain its form through years of wear. A newer fabric within the Iron Heart collection, this 100% cotton denim is woven via vintage shuttle looming of the dual yarn method to produce a slight slub on the inside weft that softens to the body and gives this remarkable medium weight denim an unmatched durability and performance. Featuring a black sulfur rope dyed warp and black sulfur dip dyed weft over heavy white core yarn, the result is a coal black denim that will fade to grey with higher contrast fading patterns than a typical black jean. Finally, these jeans have tonal black stitching for a clean aesthetic paired with the signature details of a painted natural vegetable tanned leather patch, heavy duty canvas twill pocket bags, embossed copper riveting on the front pockets, hidden rivets on the back, a button fly with interior selvedge detailing, and a chainstitched waist, seat and hem. This high rise tapered garment with a refined and dutiful build is perfect for the gent who reads his history yet lives in the present. Built for the motorcycle community and over-engineered to start, Iron Heart tests the limits of what actually can be artfully woven and sewn. The Iron Heart 888S in 14 oz. Black x Black Selvedge Denim has supreme character to rival any in its weight class, yet will knock out and ride over the competition with championed comfort and fading potential.
