This is always confession time with me, so let’s keep it moving: I’m not sure what people normally use to dye clothing black. You could tell me that it comes from squid ink or crude oil and I’d probably be like “¯\_(ツ)_/¯.” But I can verify that this Iron Heart Type II got its hue via sulphur, and it is blacked the f*%# out.
Like I’m fairly certain that my resolution can’t even reproduce the picture, but I can also pretty much smell the sulphur from my couch. Anyways. This beast. Made in Japan from a 14 oz. sanforized selvedge denim with a black warp AND weft—dyed using different methods, this leveled-up Type II comes rinsed and features the brand’s staple hallmarks, internal felled seams, cotton-poly constructional stitching, and a cinch at the back.
Is this a brand new Type II? Not really, but it is one of the best I’ve seen. Besides, the Type II isn’t really aching for a redesign.
