The motorcycle-friendly denim legends Iron Heart are back at it with their Loomstate Ultra Heavy Raw 21/23 Oz. selvedge in their classic 1955 cut. The denim is a loomstate, unsanforized 21 ounce selvedge that, after the initial soak, becomes 23 ounce (thus the name). While it is dubbed as heavyweight, the brand promises it to be super soft, lest you fear an intense break-in.
As with all of IH’s denim, the focus is on durability and solid construction: it features polycotton constructional stitching, lined rear pockets, waist-sewn belt loops, and hidden rivets. As with any unsanforized denim, the pair will shrink after the first soak, to the tag size in the waist and 2 inches in the inseam.
They are a limited run–or “endangered”–with the possibility of further production dependent upon popularity.
