Iron Heart 666-21 Review

When Shinichi Haraki started Iron Heart in 2003, he had motorcyclists in mind. That is to say, he knew that he wanted to design pieces that would guarantee longevity and accommodate a rugged lifestyle. Enter: the Iron Heart 666-21 (or, ‘the devil’s fit’). This 21oz slim-straight jean is a staple from the brand, and for good reason. Made in Japan’s denim district of Kojima, Okayama, this jean combines Western inspired designs with Japanese craftsmanship. Keep reading for more detailed thoughts alongside some fit pics. Fit: The Iron Heart 666-21 is a true slim-straight jean. The silhouette in the thigh is snug, and from the knee down, the jean does not taper. This makes the jean a great option for those looking for something to wear over a pair of boots, for example (see pictures below). The 666 has a medium rise too which means the jean sits comfortably just above the hips. Finally, the 666 (like all of Iron Heart’s denim) is made with a 36″ inseam to accommodate those who need the extra length.

Deanna’s Picks: Doublewood Denim Super Narrow Selvedge

Doublewood on the daily Today on the blog, we’re spotlighting photographer Deanna Flinn and her top picks for the fall season. Deanna has chosen three looks that reflect the ongoing menswear for women trend. We love seeing both women and men mix up traditional fits and styles creating a unique outfit that suits them. Fresh for the upcoming fall season, Deanna picked the classic Doublewood Super Narrow fit to style in three different ways. Though technically this is one of Doublewood’s men’s fits, the Super Narrow looks great on women who are looking for a looser, but still slim, selvedge jean. Easy breezy Deanna’s first fall outfit pick is easy, everyday wear. Deanna has accompanied her Doublewood Super Narrow jeans with a classic white dutil tee…(Honestly, you can never go wrong with this look). We love the look of a perfectly oversized white t-shirt with a pair of Doublewood jeans for an easy weekend outfit. Throw on a pair of your favourite sneakers and even add a leather jacket and you have the ideal on-the-go, COMFORTABLE outfit for all your weekend adventures. Grey Days Just incase that white tee isn’t quite warm enough for the chilly days of fall, Deanna has […]
