Papa Nui / Re: PN-0022 - Papa Nui American Caesar Cap
« on: April 15, 2018, 07:15:34 am »
Hey -- Is there anyone out there who knows what the original purpose was of those two 'pockets' on the crown of the American Caesar Cap ?

I've ended-up deciding to tuck a Spyderco Dog-tag knife into one of them.

As for other contemporary uses, I've previously tried:  spare change (for a coffee, or for the bus); a toothpick; a match (Just because.  I don't smoke); a lighter (Just because.  I don't smoke); a business card; a credit card (Be careful !); and a space-pen.

Any other ideas, good or bad ?

I'm curious, @Giles (or someone else in-the-know):  What is the meaning of this shirt's "T/C" prefix ?  Is T/C important in some way as concerns the style or the fabric of this shirt ?

...  A quick search on-line produced only the minimally informative (and likely unrelated) result "Textile and Clothing".

These are handsome, high-quality, lifetime belts -- both the good ol' basic black and the milk-chocolate brown brown, and their solid brass hardware is a big, broad, welcome fit that's nicely spaced between an IH pair of jeans' two front belt loops... 
...  and guess what else ?  Main man @Giles was kind enough to offer to find, and then to bring-in some extra, nickel-plated (garrison) buckles -- one of which I've bought and have swapped for the brass hardware of my black Tochigi IHB-06, so as to match the silver of the chain-linkage of the black wallet, and of the black key-fob, that I wear with my jeans.  How's that for attention to detail ?  Thanks again, IH !

SS18 - Jackets / Re: IHJ-65 - 21oz Selvedge Mountain Parka

I understand; thanks, neph93 !  I am now as much in-the-know as can be regarding this (or any) pre-production sizing routine.

As for 'zip-up and button-over' versus 'neo-anorak' styling (and other such details perhaps yet to be finalized), I'm sure that we can trust The Stubborn Crew to update us all about the Mountain Parka, in due course.

SS18 - Jackets / Re: IHJ-65 - 21oz Selvedge Mountain Parka

Are there any specific measurements that can be shared at present (even if only on a tentative basis) ?  I am specifically interested in the Mountain Parka's length, because any serious challenge to the Canadian winter (anywhere in Canada !) ought to include a coat that at least covers one's back-side !

Here are some other questions, about the parka's fine styling:  What is under the button-down front placket ?  A zipper ?  Is it a zipper in blue that is pictured, in the gap between the bottom of the front placket and the parka's hem ?  If that's not a zipper pictured, is what we have here a modified anorak (i.e. pull-over) styling ?

Shirting / Re: IHSH-07 Western Hickory Stripe Shirt
« on: January 26, 2018, 08:59:25 am »
This shirt exudes quality; more particularly, it looks and feels great (the fabric is perfectly tailored and the fit is spot-on).  I'm very pleased with my IHSH-07; it's a big handsome that will no doubt last a lifetime (or at least for the rest of mine) !
I reckon this to be a three-season shirt.  I'll wear it with a jacket during the Vancouver Winter (+/- 0 -- 5C), as well as solo or with a T, during the Autumn and Spring (5 -- 15C).

You're leaving, Matt !...  and we had only just gotten acquainted !  Well, I'll say good-bye knowing that the sadness about your departure is countered by so many kind thoughts for your future.  I add my best wishes to those of the many others who have written to help with your send-off.

Let me know if ever you find yourself in Vancouver.  Maybe we could take a side-trip down the road to catch a Seahawk game in Seattle, eh ?

Hardware / Re: IHG-055-MC - Iron Heart Mug With Motorcycle Logo
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:41:13 am »
I got two mugs:  This one, with the motorcycle logo (IHG-055-MC); and its sibling, the one with the bell-and-wings logo (IHG-055-BW).  The first mug is for my tea; the second is for my coffee.  Both are flawlessly made, good-looking, skookum pieces (translation:  'skookum' is west-coast Canadian slang for 'big and strong' !).  These mugs are quick and easy to pre-warm with just a fill of hot tap water, and they then hold the heat of your gyokuros or americanos from start to finish (for as long as your leisurely pace does not turn into a crawl !).  I have not drank from a better mug.

Faith / Re: W&A-LC - The W & Anchor Leather Cuff
« on: May 25, 2017, 05:07:50 am »
I got one of these, too (in black); I couldn't resist the urge to do so, and I'm glad for it:  this cuff is handsome, nicely designed, and well made.  My wrist measures 7.5" (19 cm) around, and the cuff fit perfectly (i.e. comfortably snug) -- just as shown in the photos of it; moreover, its design will allow someone with a larger wrist simply to back-off the notching, and someone with a (much) smaller wrist simply to cinch-up the notching.  In sum, anyone wanting a fine piece of leather jewelry will thus be pleased with the looks, quality, and sizing of this cuff from Faith via Ironheart.
