IH-634N - 17oz Selvedge Denim Straight Cut Jeans - Natural Indigo
Iron Heart - 17oz Selvedge Denim Straight Cut Jeans - Natural Indigo
We've been meaning to break into the straight cut world from IH for some time. We couldn't think of a better way to do it than with the natural 17oz denim. We've seen this in person, and we must admit...we like the way it fades better than the 21oz. It's not quite as heavy but still has a ton of gumption at 17oz. Plus, the natural indigo will fade more like a vintage pair, though it is a stubborn fader. These have all the Iron Heart bells and whistles you know and love. They also feature that infamous beige/brown weft.
- Made in Japan
- Classic straight cut
- Medium rise
- 17oz rope dyed , natural weft Japanese denim
- Very deep indigo , likely to fade with great contrast - but will take time as this indigo is super stubborn to give up its colour
- Beige weft
- Button fly and
- Unlined rear pockets
- Poly/cotton constructional stitching
- side seams and fly construction
- and one-washed - little to no to be expected
- The waist will stretch out approximately one inch with wear
- Other dimensions will stretch proportionately to the waist
A variance of +/-.5" is within tolerance.
Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 31 in the pics. You can see he has plenty of room in the legs, but the waist was quite a bit snug. He would have to really work to get that top button done. We would recommend sizing up one from your normal Iron Heart denim for this one. Tommy is 5'10," 162lbs with a 32-33" waist.
The "Zero" fabric has been on our radar from the beginning. It's one of, if not the most famous Samurai denim. This is the original 5-button edition. They love this one so much, they send out stickers and pins to commemorate it. This fabric was first introduced in 2004 after a long development period. It broke many looms and many needles along the way. It is their tried and true. They've used an uneven No. 5 yarn for both the warp and weft for maximum fading potential. These things have a sh*tton of character. They finished it off with the gold and red selvedge ticker. We can not wait to see these fade.

Well, this round they've done it with the zipper - another thing not often seen from Samurai. This is no ordinary zipper, it's a Scoville "Gripper" zipper.

You already know if Samurai produces anything, they're not playing around. So would they do a chino any lighter than 15oz? Most likely not. These things are bonkers. They honestly might as well be a pair of olive selvedge denim, but they have a chino cut. The metallic silver Lamé selvedge line will make them feel even more so like your favorite pair of jeans. These might be unsanforized, but they've had a factory wash to alleviate almost all of that shrinkage. We simply had to see what a Chino from Samurai would look like, and we weren't disappointed. We absolutely love the fabric and we're enamored with the looser, super comfy fit. This is a wardrobe starter for guys looking to get out of their super tight selvedge denim.
How could we say no to these jeans? They have custom hardware designed to pay homage to jeans from the 1940s/50s. Their Otokogi denim is 100% Texas cotton known for its rough texture and impeccable vintage fading qualities. It's a short fibre cotton that creates the rough texture you see. Normally, those fibers are removed to make the cotton smooth, but Samarui adds more to ramp it up even more. They've also used 100% Texas cotton sewing throughout, something we rarely see these days. This denim is for the purist at heart. As the denim is spun at a high tension, even post soak/wash they will become even more stiff (luckily they're only 15oz to start, and not 25). This will result in some of the best fading denim on the planet.
We are absolutely blown back by this fabric. For one, it's not your traditional wabash stripe. They've used throwing stars for the pattern - an incredible idea. To us, the raw fabric is pretty contrasting up front. It can be hard to imagine how it will age. But luckily, they've done that for us and we think it takes the perfect amount of sting out of that contrast. It makes this shirt perfect for comfort and aesthetics up front. That's all not to mention that it's an indigo x black denim. That's what gives this shirt is beautiful, deep, shadowy indigo color. And if you look on the inside, you'll notice the fabric is a few shades darker...so when you roll up your cuffs you get to see that wonderful character. This shirt is simply stunning. We're so glad we brought it to the shop.
