    It's a few years' old, but I have too many jackets that it doesn't get the wear it deserves! I'll try to get some more fit pics this weekend.

    Here's some more pics of the jacket Dave posted on eBay:

    Thank you kindly, sir!

    I feel like a million bux! XD

    Oh, just a little Chrome Hearts something. Nothing from TFL's little league. Y'know, none of that budget stuff like Aero, LW, FCL, etc. Stuff you can get on AliExpress or wherever you guys buy your leather jackets.

    You seriously don't want to know. :D

    Hahaha it looks pretty normal from the front, just a leather vest. But anyway, this is what I had spent most of the day wearing and I gotta say, I absolutely LOVE this jacket!

    Looks killer man!

    It's funny...this video just popped up on my youtube last night. The guy is wearing a customized PER70 so you can see it "in action", they also talk about it a little.

    This ones grown on me and now off the market. I just need to wear tucked in shirts more often.

    side note- ruined the beard shape with a funky trim so what does the lounge say. Grow back or just try the stache / soul patch combo and ditch the rest?

    Not really much of a picture taker but wanted to introduce myself to the forum. Won't do a wardrobe break down every time I promise since I wear pretty much the same thing everyday.

    Jacket: Self Edge x Iron Heart. Fits ok but is slightly big almost everywhere and sleeves are way too long.
    Shirt: TFH western flannel
    T-shirt: TSG
    Belt: Orion
    Jeans: IH 777 14oz
    Boots: Shell Cordovan Wolverine 1k (x Allen Edmonds who made them)
    Wallet: TSG (+ KMW lanyard) [don't really use this wallet much anymore]
    Specs: Randolph

    Grow it back out! Don't do the stache...I had one, I called it the "pandemic stache". Nearly cost me my marriage. Now I've turned my sights to growing a full blown power beard, somewhere between @MrProper and @Carlos840. I've also decided to grow out what little hair I have left and tripling up my efforts in the weight room so that I might look just like a white Kimbo Slice just in time for speedo season at the beach.
    Edit: If I am successful I will bump the trucker shorts thread;)

    Wore the heavy Bravestar while on campfire duty w the kids. Don’t tell anyone but I threw it in the washer to remove the smoke, dried it for 30 minutes on low, then let it hang dry overnight.

    It shrunk a bit and is now eminently more wearable. Super pleased!

    Everything’s great except the button holes are too small again. Win some, lose some (feeling in your thumbs)

    Its a good look! Other than being overall too large, what do you think about the IH jacket?

    The pics I’ve seen often make the forearms look quite slim.

    @Bfd70 and @El Marro posted their IH jackets pretty recently, and I believe @Powerband has one.

    I've only worn mine once! Was thinking of selling it now that I have the IH OD but seeing as how it looks like it'll fade I think I'll keep it!

    I really like the jacket. The "too large" was a bit on intention so I could layer it. It can comfortably house my thick strike gold hoodies. I believe the sleeve length is probably by design since if I lean forward (such as like riding a bike) the sleeve length is perfect for still covering my arms. The leather itself is quite nice. Its soft and extremely vibrant black (as you'd expect with a chrome tanned hide.). I can't say I'm the stitch guru like some people on this forum but overall the construction seems immaculant to me.

    I would say the arms have quite the taper but I have relatively large foearms for my frame and the jacket is comfotable. I have to fully zip down the sides even to make sure the sleeves stay in place and there is no problem with it choking my arms out. Though with most things Iron Heart I own everything about it is nice but it does feel a touch soul-less. I can't describe it but every piece of Iron Heart I own I never seem to really fall in love with. I just like it. And at this point I have quite a bit of Iron Heart...

    Yeah even with just a little fading added a lot of character versus how it was before. Keep it! Maybe let the washing machine do some of the work?

    Welcome to FL sir! Nice look there and I like that Flat Head jacket a lot. As far as "soul-less" just keep wearing and loving it, you'll help to give it soul. :)

    “white kimbo slice” made me chuckle. Go for it! Kimbo, what a legend! I’ll always remember those old backyard street fights.

    Haha. Well dating during the pandemic is pretty much uneventful so I might just give the soul patch / stache a go. Stay tuned for more bathroom jacket selfie’s !
