I think that would be novel for a couple of reasons. Haven't handled it, but Kersey appears to be much more soft and supple than any material I've seen in a type i/ii/iii, 101j, etc

I like the ribbed texture of the kersey. Very unique. It would look equally cool in type III form. Curious though how heavy you can make kersey fabric. 14oz sounds like a good middle ground to start.

Modified type III possibilities:

moleskin (although it might look kinda weird and may not be practical)
heavyweight serge
heavyweight kersey
whipcord (another color besides the green one)
duck (a new variant that is longer than the current version, with brown corduroy collar)
heavyweight ripstop (not sure if this is possible or if it even makes sense. might also look weird)

My wife is currently out of town, which means there's no buffer between my mother-in-law, who moved in with us last month, and me.  I need a buffer.

Booze?

That Flathead rider jacket looks great. This was the jacket I was eyeballing from R&H and now that TFH is no more it makes this jacket even more rare. The details of this jacket are perfect imo.

So who else makes a jacket that is close to TFH rider jacket? I was looking at some of Aero's offerings but can't decide if their fits look too boxy or not.

I think the length looks fine. I get where you’re coming from though regarding length. I typically wear long t-shirts and end up tucking them if I’m wearing them under a flannel. It’d be nice to not have to worry about that

But, my hoodies are on the longer side which I’m ok with. I only have crew neck sweatshirts and hoodies by Reigning Champ

A shit load.....

It is hyper-expensive and H has tried many alternatives, he has also tried weaving with Aspero in the weft and another long-staple cotton in the warp (and vica versa ) with results that don't make us smile.  So go big or go home - 100% Aspero for us.

If there is a shortage, we're fucked....

Thanks. If there were a shortage I’d still buy IH flannels even if they were woven with regular cotton. Were IH’s older flannels woven with long staple cotton? Or are UHF’s with aspero a recent fabric that came about 7-8 yrs ago?

@Giles

How much prep goes into sourcing, dyeing and weaving aspero cotton? I think it’s such a great fabric and is what separates IH from other brands. Kinda curious why Haraki San chose aspero over regular cotton and what he would do if there ever was an aspero shortage.

That would be cool, but I don't think Sam Jackson would spend all that time in make-up.  :D

I’m sure he spent a lot of time in makeup for his role in Django

Anyway, I know he released a longer cut of the Hateful 8 on Netflix as a tv show. I'd rather see him do something like that nowadays from the start.

It didn't help that Hateful Eight was 3 hrs long. It's definitely a slow burn of a film but well worth it. I also like that this movie is basically a Western version of John Carpenter's The Thing, not just with the characters but also with the environment, the plot and the music, some of which was music from The Thing soundtrack

Is the Star Trek movie definitely on?

I suspect that it is. The studio would be insane to turn him away and since the Star Trek franchise is a cash cow i'm sure they'd want to capitalize on Tarantino's ability to bring in movie goers. If it becomes rated R even better. It might seem like a cliche at this point but Samuel Jackson as a Klingon would be bad ass

Re-watched Jackie Brown for the first time in about 10 years. I do love Tarantino and that is not only his most underrated film, it may be one of his absolute best.

Yep, Jackie Brown is great. Loved Robert Forster. I've found that some of Tarantino's films haven't aged well, especially the movies that made him famous like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Of his recent output, I really enjoyed Django Unchained and Hateful Eight, but that's because I like a good western. Excited for his Star Trek film to come out  8)
