Iron Heart’s Latest Denim Shirts – IHSH-75 and IHSH-76

The Iron Heart IHSH-75

The Iron Heart IHSH-75

Iron Heart is a brand synonymous with rugged durable looks – think lumberjacks or motorcycle mechanics. Whenever I see these types of shirts, I think of the Marlboro Man or Richard Avedon’s In The American West.

The IHSH-75 is the replacement former model, the IHSH-53. It is built with a sturdy 12 Oz. indigo selvege denim and aluminum cat-eye buttons. 12 Oz. seems a good weight for a shirt, coming off as neither too heavy so as to be uncomfortable but also not so light as to feel like you’re wearing a normal shirt.

The other cool aspect to take note of is the chain stitching run off along the selvedge gussets. It’s a nice added feature that may be overlooked or more possibly be cutoff as a loose thread by the uninitiated. Regardless, it’s a unique characteristic.

Taking a look at Iron Heart‘s other release, the IHSH-76 is described on the company’s blog as the ‘big ugly brother’. It’s a western type shirt or jacket with side pockets and weighs in at 17 Oz.. Considering most pants fall in the 11-15 Oz. range a ‘shirt’ made with 17 Oz. denim boggles the mind. They also call it a shirt/jacket which I think is a considerably more accurate name. The 76 has most of the same features as the 75 but also includes an interior pocket lining.

    not a big fan of these. im a fashion/style guy, and while i see the appeal of a denim jacket, i dont find these appropriate or stylish. coming at a wierd time (spring/summer) this kind of makes me lose trust in Iron Heart. a company that releases 17 oz denim in spring summer 2013 is very strange to say the least. not for me, and ill be surprised if someone manages to pull this off during this season.

      y’know, nobody really cares if you’re a fashion/style little kid. and no one really cares about your opinion either. don’t like something? don’t comment it!

        I’m with asdfghjk on this: Devan, while this is the internet, the beauty of anonymity is not to be scathed with poor comments. Not everyone contorts to fit the same mold as you, and different people could probably “pull off” hundreds of looks that you couldn’t. The beauty of anonymity is that the “I” in your statement generates 0 cares from me.

        I, a burly motorbiking dude, love the western shirt, but I ain’t trashing APC lovers for being hip.

          I dont think i communicated my ideas correctly. please let me try again. Iron Heart is a motorcycle, hardcore, type of brand. this is not me at all. and while i understand this, i dont see the appeal of a denim shirt. the main reason im not seeing the appeal is that they are releasing this during the spring/summer season. also, i dont know why people attack me so much for my opinions. to be honest, does anyone care about anyone’s comments? i think that there are very few that people care about. i am just expressing my comments on the internet, i find it very hypocritical and ironic that asdfghjk said “don’t like something? don’t comment it!” when he obviously doesnt like my comment.

            please dont try again, we all beg you!!!

            oh for God sake, can’t you realize why all the people attack you? because you act like a f*cking assh*le !!!!!!!!!!!!

            Well rather than bashing your comment like everyone else, I’d just like to say that in cooler climates (like in the Rocky Mountains of Canada where I live), a 17oz denim shirt is a perfect choice for those cooler summer days where a t-shirt just won’t cut it. I’m going to be wearing jeans that heavy all summer anyways. But like you, definitely not hardcore enough for a denim shirt. Maybe after a few years of weight lifting, protein powder, and facial hair growth I could pull one off haha

      Given that Iron Heart is a proper workwear brand and not a trendy style brand, I think you may not be the target market.

      And you’ve certainly missed the point of the company as a whole.

      this comment was seriously, poorly thought out. losing trust in iron heart? strange? appropriate or stylish? you don’t understand iron heart, obviously. you can have opinions, but if they’re like this, don’t bother sharing them. if your comment is meaningful (in this case it isn’t) you can still put it out there, even if you don’t agree with something about a product/company.

      just because you can’t wear 12 oz or 17 oz shirts in the spring doesn’t mean others can’t. people can pull it off, so don’t be surprised just because you can’t.

      who cares what season it is when they release products? if you care about seasons that much, don’t ever wear iron heart’s products. plus, spring for the other half of the world means rain, snow, and cold weather. think about other people in other places before you comment.

    i’m not exactly familiar with Iron Heart, but….am i right to assume that these denim shirts are made by 12oz & 17oz denim fabric used to make the -actual- denim pants?

    if that’s the case, i guess you can’t exactly call it a -shirt-, more like a denim jacket at this point :

      Shouts out to people who actually read the article.
