Curious too. I bought a pair of 21oz from Unbranded. Was going to go for Iron Heart with the same weight, but wasn't sure about spending 200+ on denim I might end up not wearing.

Unbranded has a very "industrial" cut. I had to have my alterations lady take them apart and put them back together as the fit was extremely "rectangular" for me. Now they fit great (maybe a little bit low on the back), but breaking the stiff denim in is no joke. They don't breath a lot, so they are good for a walk outside, but anything brisk and you feel the sweat building up. Also, I don't feel they are particularly better under cold weather than thinner denim. Still, interesting stuff.

I bought an LG 55'' OLED TV and headphone stand:

On the back of that, might upgrade my Grado's next month.
Mrs DB wants to get the 75” version if it goes on a Black Friday sale. I end-up watching my stuff on my phone in bed while the kids monopolise the TV with gaming stuff.

Nothing special - Gustin straight 21oz black x black. I like their fit (except for the rise) and needed a new pair in black. Wasn’t really looking for a heavy weight, just something that will hold its color and keep that crisp black look for a while before fading to grey.

I had a pair of 21oz Unbranded (or maybe it was Naked & Famous, I can’t remember) jeans years ago and wasn’t that impressed - it was heavy but very coarse and never really softened. Like sandpaper or cardboard.

I handled a pair of Iron Hearts in the store recently and the difference was night and day - with a slightly loser weave and softer cotton, they felt heavy but wearable. Now that my daily work uniform includes jeans (tactical pants only required when around the press) I might splurge on IH jeans when my current indigo pair wear out.

The best heavy weights I’ve owned were 18oz Gustin in a very relaxed weave. They weren’t starchy at all so the ‘sick fadez bro’ crowd wouldn’t like them, but they felt sturdy yet comfortable and a little warmer.

According to my missus's research, the LG's have the best reviews at the moment. For how much they watch it, I would have thought the 75'' version would have been a better option. They've currently nabbed my S340 HP/Bang & Olufsen computer screen.

I really hated the unbranded straight fit. It was way too boxy in the rise.

really can't argue with that.
Many Dutch themselves will say it's a horrible sounding language.

The accent here in The Hague is the harshest and in television dramas they always use The Hague accent to indicate a criminal.

The accent from Maastricht is much nicer. Dutch but with a French accent.

They’ll need that Vaseline to coat him in to be able to drag him out of the White House. Although he’s slippery enough already.

U all libtards, wannabes,bidenists, and demorats united are a bunch of brainless, classless submen.

U losers and more homos than the husband of nobama!
