Iron Heart 888S 21oz Denims (Straight Tapered fit)

If you want super strong contrast denim ageing you've got to try some heavy ounce denim! Some maybe scared of the weight and rigidity but this aint an issue with these 888S denims from Iron Heart!

As one of the most famous heavy weight denim brands, Iron Heart have created a brand another pair of denims for those who like hardcore, modern style ageing. Specially woven on vintage machines, the 21oz denim is grand indigo dyed and has gone through Iron Heart’s special softening process! Without effecting the ageing, this makes for a super soft and comfortable fit! This model comes in high rise, with a strong taper after the knee. Especially good for those who have large thighs.

For added durability and strength, the denims have been totally constructed with poly-cotton thread and include cotton twill back pocket linings! There is also an additional button in the fly to create a better mid-high rise fit.

Haven’t tried heavy ounce denims before or looking to experience hardcore ageing? This is great pair for you to start with!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
