Before reading ahead, know one thing: this is the single pair of denim that will get you through the Winter months ahead. Mayan Calendar and December 21, 2012 be damned – the IronHeart X634sX Flannel Lined Water-Resistant jeans provides an extra heavy duty layer shielding you from any negative effects of subzero climate.
A collaboration between Iron Heart and Self Edge, the Xs634sX were made exclusively for Self Edge and are based on the original 634S model. Without a doubt, the most notable quality present is the paraffin coating. Although the paraffin will not waterproof the jeans forever, it will repel water for a good duration of time and, interestingly enough, inhibit any shrinking effects.
From a personal standpoint, along with the dark flannel lining, the combination of the red and yellow stitching on the seams and back pockets add a vibrant contrast and character to the deep indigo color of these pants.
As is often the case with collaborative pieces, don’t delay if you are on the fence with this item. The two companies have only made a run of fifty pairs and Self Edge has also noted they will never be restocked.
