This is my all time favorite vintage piece:



And Lefty, we have very similar eBay watch lists.
I make things out of leather.

You're gonna have to. Them Shits run like $2500. At least thats what that Larry dude sells em for.

I prefer the freewheelers shirts because their new and I don't feel like I'm killing a piece of history.
Too bad your momma's a bitch, cuz I totally coulda been your daddy.

I have some of the first run Iron Heart 12oz wabash fabric that I cut into Engineer shorts and a western shirt. The 1st run was a garment dyed fabric with bleached dots. It also has dirty brown overdye on it to retard the indigo loss (thats why they made a new wabash that bleeds less). It's fairly authentic, just heavy as fuck. Hollows, you should check out the Iron Heart 12oz Wabash Chore Coat (I think the product number is IH-531), however, it's made out of their "new" wabash. Instead of garment dyeing, the fabric is made of a indigo rope dyed warp and weft with bleached dots. The dots look greenish on the new wabash. Both fabrics are twill fabrics.

The ebay auction for the swatches was pulled quickly after, I'm guessing, a very generous offer. 

Both the wabash and the style of the Iron Heart jacket are, to be kind, not so good. 

my stuff in a re-used photo/freewheelers top and middle, double diamond heart wabash shirt
