Just Released: 25 oz. Iron Heart Raw Denim

Iron Heart 666-XHS "Devil's Fit"

Iron Heart 666-XHS "Devil's Fit"

For the longest time in the Japanese denim scene, Samurai Jeans Co. was considered the top-dog with regard to heavyweight materials. They were one of the first companies to begin mass-producing jeans from denim in the range of 17oz. – 21 oz. per square yard. Over the last year, they’ve expanded their collection to include even heavier 24oz. versions of their popular cuts.

Recently, however, they have (quite literally) been one-upped. Iron Heart, long known for its usage of heavyweight materials, has introduced two popular jeans in Super Extra Heavy Denim. That’s what Iron Heart is calling its new 25 oz. denim, and we couldn’t agree more. This stuff is thick enough to withstand just about any abuse you could imagine.

While it’s not the heaviest denim in the world (Naked & Famous has confirmed production of 32oz. jeans. Insane…), its certainly the heaviest from any of the more orthodox companies. Today we’ve featured Iron Heart’s popular slim cut, the IH-666-XHS “Devil’s Fit”, but they are also producing their standard cut in the 25 oz. denim, labeled the 634-XHS.

    I have the Naked&Famous 24oz jeans in Weird Guy fit and I can attest to their stiffness. After taking them off they will almost stand on their own, without the help from starch or anything. They hold their shape extremely well and I’m very pleased at how they are breaking in so far. 

    I can’t imagine there’ll be a huge difference in feeling between 24oz and 25oz, but either way if you like thick, rugged denim you can’t go wrong with heavyweight stuff like this.

      I have to agree with you, I’m not on the 24oz but the elephant 2 22oz and I love how these ones are breaking in thus far.

      I’ve got the NF 25oz (the black/black with the super thick patch). I wish it came in a slighty bigger cut as they were tight to begin with…slowly they are loosening up, tho.
