Heavy Sashiko CPO - Either natural Indigo or black fugitive dyed.
I remember suggesting a sashiko something or other awhile back because it sounded like a good idea at the time. But, I’m now of the opinion that sashiko works best when other companies like SDA, PBJ or Samurai are using it in their lines. It strikes me as something that is the polar opposite of the IH look

I’d like to see something similar to the above, but obviously not a direct copy.

Did you go with your usual size? I’m thinking I’d go xl just like last years Indigo variant. Still debating if I can justify purchasing this. I agree that these lightweight westerns are great. If IH keeps coming up with cool madras colorways it’ll keep me interested. I’d like to see some earth tones or some cool patterns that mimic some the UHF’s

@gaseousclay - it really feels like your son is an anchor in your life which is awesome. Being 50 years old now and never having kids of my own, and not having a father in my life, I marvel at the father son relationship.

Yep, kids are great. I didn’t know what I was missing until he was born. Keep in mind that I was 41 when I became a dad. Difficult but worth it But the silver lining is you seem to be in a happy relationship with [mention]Black Orchid [/mention] and that’s important to have as well. If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that relationships are vital for everyone.

I don't know about anyone else but this lock down is staring to get at me a little

I'm right there with you @den1mhead. I can't help but think what it must be like for animals in captivity, because that's what it feels like to me, to a degree. Luckily, the one person I have contact with on a regular basis is my son, so he keeps me sane through all this.

^^this was me driving home today. It was 80 degrees and I chose to wear my Pronto denim. Still don’t know how some of you can tolerate wearing heavyweight denim when it’s hot outside.

Just did the cold washing, without spin, for about 30 minutes on this shirt and left it to hang dry. A bit disappointing is the amount of shrinkage that I got, especially on the sleeve length. The sleeve is now 58.5cm against 63cm on the official charts. I'm not sure what might happen after subsequent washes! Hope it does not shrink any further!

You have to measure the actual sleeve length pre-wash/post-wash rather than compare the post-wash measurement to the sizing chart. The most shrinkage i've gotten out of shirt sleeves was when I warm washed a couple of my UHF's -- I saw 0.5 inches of shrinkage at best.


Quick and dirty fit pics. Worn for 3 months straight.

There’s a Fraudsters thread over in B/S/T. Although, I’m not sure of forum etiquette whereby someone attempts to lure you into a scam versus actually scamming you. In these scenarios I’d send a pm to a moderator to look into and/or delete the users account. Most people here are honest but personally I would only buy from someone who I recognize as a regular contributor to the forum.

You're not alone. I live here, and I am annoyed by it. Central Waters is the worst of all. The last time I checked, you couldn't even get the ABV off their website. I haven't really handled much of the Brewing Projekt stuff to notice. Thankfully, the ones that don't provide the info are in the minority.

Yeah, I dislike that CW doesn't list the ABV on their beers. I believe TBP does though. I always check the can for ABV only because I like my IPA's in the 7~8% range. If it's lower than that I typically pass.

In some cases, the construction of the hand-warmers creates a bulky seam, the fabric on the front of the jacket/vest probably hinges around that and creates a fade high-point....

It's definitely the hand-warmers that creates the seam. I recall someone posing the same question a couple years ago. The hand-warmer seam is visible on my IHxSE od type III as well as my IHJ-69. I think this is why some customers wanted the traditional type III without hand-warmers - the seam isn't visible.

Personally, the seam doesn't bother me the least bit. I see it as a necessary construction detail.

Love the artwork on the can,how was the beer?
Sorry @gaseousclay
It was ok. I don’t drink lagers often so this took getting used to. I guess I would describe it as cream soda flavored beer. I typically like oddball beers in ipa form.
