They don't shrink at all. Washed mine several times. They are just starting to get some evo. Ill post some photos in the next week. They definitely don't fade as fast as the 811's.

I washed mine 8 times in hot water w/ detergent, and after seeing no change, did it several times in boiling water trying to get them to fade and so far there's been very, very little fade

I even added  a little bleach to the boiling water experiments, and left them submerged for literally hours, making sure to keep the water super hot

almost no change whatsoever

anyone else have the same experience???

^ actually, with that brown duck cafe racer jacket, you could use Otter Wax to make it a waxed canvas distressed jacket

I distressed a tobacco suede cafe racer jacket using Otter Wax and it came out great, and duck cloth is even better

you can see the guys at Jack Knife Outfitters in San Francisco on their blog using Otter Wax to wax their duck cloth jackets and vests here: http://jackknifeoutfitters.tumblr.com/

tutorials of how to wax cotton items here:

you can see the Hammarhead /Dunderoon guys suede jacket waxed with Otter Wax here:

slightly OT - I started a thread in the General Chat section to drum up interest for IH to produce BROWN Wabash for use in vests, pants and shirts, etc

nobody does it, but it could be great looking and a coup for IH to be one of the first

here it is, so show your support if you like the idea:

in addition to being waxed, need to be a nice medium-to-dark brown, too

see old vintage Barbour's in brown for what I mean

Ok, I promise this is the last 'new product' interest thread I'll post in a long time.... but in addition to my Brown Wabash interest thread posted today, I wanted to throw out another idea that IH ought to consider making, and that is consider is a brown waxed cotton (and black, too) version of their Cotton Rider Jacket

with leather prices so high and the need for a lighter cafe racer for summer that looks better with age, waxed cotton/canvas truly fits the bill

this request is coming out of frustration I had trying to find one - Belstaff's are too costumey looking and nobody else is doing a pure cafe racer in waxed cotton that I could find in brown

I gave up looking and got a terrific tailor in San Francisco to make me one out of Dark Tan Martexin waxed canvas like this (and I will post a picture when it's done):



http://www.fairfieldtextile.com/fabrics.html

after seeing many, many old and amazing brown waxed cotton jackets at vintage clothing faires, it's about time somebody did one in a simple cafe racer format and IH already has a great version to begin with

imagine this in a great brown waxed canvas:

this would be a huge coup for IH to make since nobody else is doing it

just have to source the right color brown denim and then it's a slam dunk, imho


11

white would work, too, Giles

I could always tea stain mine to get them to cream (very easy to do)

12
brown denim like this in cream wabash print (cream colored dots) would be awesome looking:


13
I had a dream last night....that my RRL faded wabash vest also came in a brown wabash and that Ironheart made it  :-*

I think IH would sell the hell out of brown wabash in vests, painter pants, logger pants and shirts....assuming the fabric would be denim and fade... and assuming the color isn't too dark

the purpose of this thread is to find out who else would want one so IH can do a run of it

imagine how fantastic an IH version of this vest would be in a brown (medium/dark) wabash denim with a brown denim back that can be faded:

ordered them Monday, received in California from the UK on Wednesday - so impressed  :)

perfect fit, great quality, in love :-)

p.s. I wonder if anyone who liked the 811's more antique finish from the brown overdye would consider tea-dyeing

if anyone has any spare scraps of wabash fabric kicking around, it might be interesting to see what would happen to them tea-dyed.  Maybe a step too far, but interesting to consider
