Pr-owned 18oz Vintage Selvedge Denim Straight Cut Jeans - Originally Indigo but have been colored black.
Classic straight cut jeans in 18oz indigo selvedge denim, woven in the renowned Shinya mill which is famous for authentically vintage style denims, whilst the jeans are constructed to Iron Heart’s high technical standards. Mixing traditional methods and new techniques is Iron Heart’s “vintage style”.
Shinichi Haraki established The Works Inc and the Iron Heart brand in 2002. After 20 years of working in the garment industry in Japan, beginning as a pattern maker for Edwin and advancing to designer and producer/director for the company, he decided to combine his wealth of experience with his passion for motorbikes and create his own clothing brand, with a focus on heavyweight denims and durable fabrics, designed for and aimed at the Japanese motorcycling community.
Iron Heart was originally made for bikers, and even today that focus guides design and construction of the clothing. Confident that the clothes appeal to a variety of owners, Haraki-san conceives of them to be worn by riders and for their preferences. Iron Heart garments are in the main made from heavyweight fabrics, designed to be durable, and to some extent protective for motor bikers. Iron Heart clothing is classic in materials and styling, using mostly flannels, denim and chambrays for shirts, and basing jackets on time tested military or riding favourites. Some designs – for example the 25oz XHS (extra heavy selvedge) denim jeans - are at the limit of what can actually be woven and sewn: “over-engineered is their starting point.”.
