Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Iron Heart 888S in Indigo is a newer cut, designed 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 signature 21 oz. heavy weight, sanforized and once-washed right hand twill Japanese Selvedge denim. This material is made with two twisted yarns to add bulk in a low tension weave that will become amazingly soft with a natural drape while retaining its form. A hallmark fabric within the Iron Heart collection, this 100% cotton denim utilizes the 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 heavy weight denim an unmatched wearability. Featuring a rope dyed indigo warp and a natural colored weft with a subtle grey cast over heavy white core yarn, this jean will evolve into a remarkable vintage blue with contrast fading patterns. Finally, it's topped with an ultra heavy natural vegetable tanned embossed 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 garment is sure to be a new classic using signature IH details and fabric with a contemporary yet informed high rise tapered fit for the gent who lives his history in the present. Built for the motorcycle community and over-engineered to start, it tests the limits of what actually can be artfully woven and sewn. The Iron Heart 888S in 21 oz. Indigo has supreme character to rival any in its weight, yet will knock out and ride over the competition with championed comfort and fading potential.

Iron Heart 888S Denim runs slightly small and we suggest sizing toward your actual waist size since this denim is sanforized and once-washed and is considered pre-shrunk. Expect 1" of stretch in the waist with regular use, and shrinkage to original size upon washing.

We recommend consulting our Sizing Guide and using our Virtual Size Chart.
