Not all of it. But a few older pieces. Or if I wanna fade a pair of jeans or jacket. I know it seems crazy to wear expensive gear for work but it really holds up well, and after a few months hard graft it looks awesome.

Hmm not sure how many workwear brands would stand up to regular/everyday on site.

Reassuring that IH does and you wear it well. There was a US guy on insta, working in workwear (or similar) who’s account was all about that… seems to have disappeared now

I have wore a couple of other denim brands and they just don’t last. You get great fades but holes and blowouts happen much sooner than with Iron Heart.

I had a lot of my gear before I worked outside. I was sitting in offices in full blown workwear dreaming of epic fadez . So once I started outside it was a no brainer for me.

@spitfire - did you retrain? I don’t think I can do another 30 years or so in an office

yes. PBJ do fade lovely though. I got a pair of double blacks I am going to give month or 2 hard work once the weather warms up.

It's a absolute beast of a jacket. 19oz raw. Still feels like body armour.

yes mate, was originally in the print/design trade. Couldn't handle it anymore. Office bitching and bullshit just got too much for me. Best thing I ever did other than having a kid.

That jacket is Ubercool

I agree about IH. Had my 634s for years and only just got a hole in the thigh. Look amazing, strong fabric and the 21oz denim is comfy as fuck. Samurais are like wearing cardboard in comparison.
Not looked at their range for a while now though so no idea what model i'll need when my 555s are fucked….

I got the relaxed tapered XX 019 BB from PBJ. Don’t feel that relaxed below the knee though.

Slim tapered from IH look at 555 or 777

I've got some 555-01 and love them. But still prefer the cut of my Orslow 107s.

Wouldn't fancy landscaping when I'm 65.

Fly fades by then mind.
