Very sharp, @den1mhead.  It's a great jacket, tough as all get out.

I'm one who washed it at 90 with no ill effects, other than some desired shrinkage.  To my mind, the 62s are noticeably tougher than similar weight IH shirts, so there's probably little you can do to damage them, short of using a knife.

Very interesting talk, although the weights explanation at the start was rather more in-depth than I've seen or heard elsewhere.

Great looking jacket.  I had two modified ODs, but sold them because of the length.  This is the one I should have got, but I was too late.

This is my go-to pub shirt. Tough as old boots.  I don't know why it seems thicker than the same weight 33, but it does.

Ha, time moves on.  I'm now down to four, as I found the ODs and the black 101 to be too long for my liking.  Expensive lesson learned, but it just reinforces my love for the remaining four, especially the indigos.

I've been wanting a red like this for years now.  Let's hope it happens.

I've been wearing this a lot recently.  Much prefer the shorter length and no handwarmers of the older styles.


Gave these a 40C wash and 400 spin, with no ill effects.  Shrinkage was only about 0.5" in the leg.  They're pretty stiff and I plan to wear them a lot just to loosen them up a bit.  The second pic shows the same material in the 526J-sbg, with some nice fades after pretty infrequent wear compared to my indigo jackets.  The jacket is noticeably softer, too.



Hadn't planned on this, but it's too nice a denim to miss out on, and a great complement to the indigo and OD.

Thanks, @AdamJ.  Does being unwashed have any impact on shrinkage on the first wash?

Nice.  Wasn't expecting this.  I love my 526J-sbg, but I sense that that denim is stiffer than the indigo 21oz.  Are these sbg's a bit stiffer than the indigo 777S-21?

Wow. Hard to believe it's the same denim.  There still hope for mine, then.  :)

@Sam, what jeans are you wearing there?

Thanks @Giles.   Great looking jacket, probably looking even better against ODs.
