Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Iron Heart IH-888S-SLB in Indigo is a new core 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 16 oz. medium weight, sanforized and once-washed Slubby Japanese Selvedge Denim in an irregular low tension weave using slub yarns of various weights. A new fabric within the Iron Heart collection, this 100% cotton denim is woven via vintage shuttle looming using their signature dual twisted weft yarn method to add structure and a slub texture that softens to the body for a remarkable medium weight denim that has a natural drape, and retains its form through years of wear with unmatched durability and performance. Featuring a rope dyed indigo warp and a natural colored weft with a subtle grey cast over heavy white core yarn, these jeans will evolve with character-rich vintage fading patterns in a brilliant blue. Finally, it's topped off 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-SLB Slubby Selvedge has a pronounced texture in a precise configuration that will crush the competition with championed comfort and fading potential.

The 888-SLB runs true to Iron Heart sizing, and we suggest going down 0-1 sizes from your Actual Waist Measurement (Body). Made with a 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.
