Am looking for type 3 jacket and i want wear all year round. Would i miss something if i choose 14 oz over 22oz.220 would be something…
What kind of denim jacket are you thinking of? Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 (often called a trucker jacket)?
IH's models across all three are a bit oddly proportioned, but if you give a note as to what you're looking for, I can point you to your best options for weight/wearability.
I think 14 oz is good for me. Thank you for your input14 oz is a respectable weight on a denim jacket, mall denim jacket is even under 10 oz , if you want all year wearability where you layer it or probably wear it as second layer under a leather jacket, then 14 oz would be the one, but if that denim jacket would be your center piece item that you're going to wear it hard and often then sure you can go 22 oz probably the collar of the jacket would stay popped up if you like to wear it that way, it probably would be too hot for some activities or some places with full sun exposure.
One question i want to know about tellason type 3 also and i got brand new iH 14oz for 300 dollar is that expensive or fair price.
Same as any other type of garment, the cut and design are personal choice. Some people do prefer the asymmetrical one pocket design. I wonder how that is a scam. As you said it, there are different shade of blue and that depends on the dye (indigo). Some cost more because of the indigo used. It is fine that you do not care for any of those but it does not mean others don't.A term "quality" in relation to denim is largely a marketing ploy and any article containing it should be dismissed as advertising.
Shop used & only mind there's no stretch in it. It's all down to just picking the shade of blue you like. Anything between 9 to 14 oz feels about the same. 20+ oz looks good, keeps the form but is ultimately a gimmick.
I wouldn't ever again pay over $20 for a jean jacket. There are literally hundreds of millions of Type-whatever's on the market & buying an expensive one has zero benefits. Iron Hearts makes a good jean jacket but so does Levi's & taking the weight out of the equation, I've yet to find a single benefit one has over the other. And I've paid more for one, several times over. Why pay $300+ plus for an IH 14oz jean jacket when you can thrift a Levi's for $12.99?
And also, don't fall for the Type scam. It's a jean jacket, the most iconic piece of wardrobe that exists. Paying more for a missing pocket won't make a significant contribution to your personality.

Coming back to the question posted. I agree that 14 oz good enough. People go for 22oz because they like to feel the weight. IMO people sometimes misconceive the term built like a tank to mean heavy weight. That weight = quality IMO is a marketing ploy feeding on people's misconception. But then again, that is a personal choice that some do prefer the feel of weight be it boots, watches or jacket.
