yes, of course!  ;D
But getting things from the US into Germany always adds a significant amount to the price tag.
In addition, I sold a jacket to a nice guy in the US via this forum 4 weeks ago. It‘s still on its way, half the time in the US... USPS. Maybe a single „S“ makes the big difference...  :-X

800 import threshold?
Wow, that’s great! I think the threshold for Germany is 50 Euros or so for VAT and 150 for customs...  :'(

...if the customs cooperate...

jep, material thickness certainly matters!
I also have shirts of also substantial thickness in which the hem is „countered“ by a seam band sewn from the other side. This seems to avoid the roll-up...

that corresponds to what I found.
So it should be a general issue with folded curved hems...

With my shirts it’s also mor pronounced on the heavier twills and denims. The chambray is rather flat...

Found a more general explanation in the web:

„ Roping is indicative of uneven feeding into the folder or even if the hem is turned by hand. If the hemmed edge is round rather than straight, roping is more common because the bottom of the hem edge is actually wider (longer) at the hem fold line than at the stitch line, causing the hem to flip up.“

Don‘t know if this applies to the IH manufacturing process but sounds sound to me...

Hmm... I have the same sort of stitching on other HD-shirts and the hem remains flat...
The „roll“ also extends the stitching and goes further up beyond the stitiching area...
Maybe the fibres get stretched in the stitching process and this causes them shrinking back and, thus, rolling up?

why does the bottom hem always roll up on these (and almost all other IHSHs)?

Anybody pimped this with brass snaps yet?
Planning to change to brass cymbal snaps on this and I wonder how it may look like...

yep, the sleeves will shorten due to stacking. In my case by about almost an inch.
SJ runs a size larger than IH. The measurements given on the website are quite accurate. I said „quite“ since there are some variations due to the hand patterning going on there...

The arc generate some tension/pressure and will prevent the sandals to slip off when lifting your feet...
