Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Iron Heart IH-888S in Indigo is a new-classic 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. heavyweight, 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 heavyweight 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, Iron Heart tests the limits of what actually can be artfully woven and sewn. The Iron Heart 888S in 21 oz. Indigo has the supreme character to rival any in its weight class, yet it will knock out and ride over the competition with championed comfort and fading potential.

The 888S runs true to Iron Heart sizing, and we suggest going down 0-1 sizes from your Actual Waist Measurement (Body). Made with sanforized and once-washed denim, most shrinkage is removed. With regular use, one can expect up to 1” of stretch in the waist over the long term.

Our Method of measuring is different than Iron Heart. We recommend consulting our Sizing Guide and using our Virtual Size Chart to reference our Method when purchasing.
