    FROM IRONHEART:

    • Made in Japan
    • 21oz superblack Japanese denim
    • Poly/cotton constructional stitching
    • Action bi-swing pleated shoulders
    • Over-specced YKK zippers
    • Designed to be worn close fitting
    • Heavyweight leather zip pulls

    • The fabric to be sanforized is moistened by water and/or steam, this lubricates the fibres and reduces the inherent friction within the fabric. Once moist, the fabric enters the sanforization process proper. Here, an endless rubber belt is squeezed between a pressure roll and a rubber belt cylinder, it is here that the stretching of the elastic belt surface occurs. The more the rubber belt is squeezed, the more the surface is stretched. This point of squeezing is known as the pressure zone, or the nip point. The fabric is fed into the pressure zone and upon leaving it, the rubber belt recovers itself and the surface returns to its pre-squeezed (stretched) size carrying the fabric with it. The effect of this action is a shortening of the warp yarns, which packs the filling yarns (weft), closer together: at this moment, shrinkage occurs.

      After compaction, the fabric enters a dryer where the fibres are locked in their shrunken state as the moisture is removed from the fabric
      Sanforized and one-washed so little or no
      The stretch that occurs can be eliminated when the friction within the fabric is reduced. This will happen during soaking and/or washing, where both water and soap act as lubricants. The lubricants, along with the mechanical action of the washer, help the fibres relax and contract (shrink) back to their original length.

      One of the reasons that dry cleaning does not shrink natural fabrics is that the friction within the fabric is not reduced by dampening.

    • May stretch a little with wear

    Much blacker in person- depends on lighting.

    I really want one. But not in the 21oz... I would like to use it for cycling, and the 21oz will probably be too much.

    Maybe I will run into one of the 14oz versions!

    GLWS!

    Would've jumped on this if it was one size smaller. GLWS!

    How do these fit? My chest size is 44". Looks like I am on the edge of 42/44 according to the site. Been looking for something for riding in the warmer months.

    You are right on the edge size wise. My chest is 43.5 and this fits appropriately trim for me. Love the shoulder gussets for even better mobility. Depends how trim fitting you like this style.

    I don't like my jackets like second-skin or baggy. This would be intended as a warm-weather motorcycle jacket when my leathers are too much (Schott 141 and Vanson Model B), so would most likely be wearing a t-shirt, or possibly a light sweatshirt.

    A very good warm weather jacket for a bike
    You do want trim not baggy when riding.
    Fits trim at the waist too.
