Love Moonstar sneakers. I have a pair of Shoes Like Pottery slip ons, any chance that we may ever see an IH slip on sneaker? Pretty much the only pair of quality canvas slip ons I've found and it seems like they're discontinued now, would be nice to have an even more heavy duty option. Superblack with all black rubber would be epic. Or perhaps even the classic black and white checkerboard a la MPW.  8)

First IH purchase in a year, can't believe it's been that long since the mustard UHF came out. Looking forward to this one.

I understand that this service is only offered on denim products, is there any chance that it might ever be offered on duck? I have a pair of 666D with some fraying in the seat and some loose stitches at the crotch seam (~4 years of wear). The fraying at the seat (right side specifically, immediately left of the pocket) is the only consistent problem area I've had in my IH jeans. 666S-BK have the exact same wear, but no blowouts or substantial fraying anywhere else. Has anybody else had blowouts in the seat like this? I don't recall it being an issue with any other brand of jeans - granted they all fell apart elsewhere much more quickly. I suppose that this could be because IH spaces the rear pockets out more towards the outseam thus removing some of the buffer that the pockets might provide. Or maybe I just have a particularly boney butt  :D

Copped!  My first UHF!  Need to see what all the hype is about.  Me thinks I won’t be disappointed.

I suspect that it won't be your last. UHFs need to be seen/worn to be fully appreciated. They will ruin all other flannels for you, they are truly without equal. Great pattern on this one too, tempted but I'm holding out for the black/yellow windowpane.

@Costch I like the idea of brown denim and it has been aired here before. As for heavyweight duck it was done about seven years ago in a parafin-coated 22oz. I was not around then but would have loved a pair.

Those are epic! Definitely wouldn't mind a pair myself, had no idea they existed but I'm not surprised. Would a reissue be out of the question? Or a new issue of something similar?

Great ideas.  We have so much new denim being worked on at the moment, I don't think that we have the bandwidth to put something else into the mix...But, we won't forget...

H has definitely been killing it with the new denims lately, I'm sure he has no shortage of ideas to work with.  8)

This is a thought I've had recently: Could IH make a duck/denim hybrid fabric that uses the same dye/yarns as the classic 17oz brown duck, but twill weave it into a denim? I understand that duck is necessarily a plain weave, but would it be a worthwhile experiment to make into a twill/denim weave with the same yarn? Or an even heavier weight one, such as a 21oz "duck brown" denim?  On a related note, any thoughts of making a heavier weight (21+oz) standard duck canvas?

Fantastic colorway for the windowpane pattern, simple but very effective. This is definitely my must have piece from this collection.

Understandable, you certainly don't have to hold on to one for me if you do happen to get any in. And certainly don't go about ordering any if I'm the only one inquiring. Wouldn't be looking to purchase until September or so, I know its a ways out but I can get a bit ahead of myself at times I suppose.  ;)

Yes a large is what I'm after, thanks Neph. And thanks for checking Giles, not exactly looking to get my hands on one right away, just more of a general inquiry. It wouldn't be terribly prudent for me to buy another jacket at this time (especially going into summer) but I would definitely like to see about adding one to the collection by fall if I can.

What I meant is that the measurements on this model (IHJ-46) are better for me in a size L (sold out) than in the recently restocked IH-2526J. Just trying to get clarification if there's any chance of this particular "unmodified" model seeing a restock at any point or if the only duck Type III being made for the foreseeable future will be the IH-2526J.

I see that the product page says that there will be no restock on this jacket, is that certain to be the case? I have my eye on a duck Type III and the measurements on this one are a bit better for me than the modified IH-2526J model.

Just got a Carhartt J140 "Active Jacket" for work. Surprisingly very well put together (in the USA no less) for $100. I especially like the big brass zipper. Their 12oz "firm duck" as they call it is actually quite nice, super crisp and I'm sure it will age well. Not nearly as supple as the 17oz IH duck though which got me to thinking how epic it would be for IH to do their take on a coat of this style. Basically an over-engineered quilt-lined tanker/hoodie hybrid. Would be especially epic in the double duck if it ever happens to see a revival. The fit on the Carhartt is definitely "roomy" as these are indeed designed with maximum mobility in mind, but it would be nice to get something a bit more fitted - something IH is so good at doing with classic workwear styles.

This has probably already been brought up () but I’d love to get some tall options as far as shirts go...

Like longer bodied and sleeved western shirts?

I second this. As someone who is very slim and tall, there aren't many shirts that have adequate sleeve length (26"+) without drowning me in the chest measurement. Size M shirts tend to fit me spot on otherwise, body length hasn't really been an issue in my experience.

Ha that's awesome! So does he just get the occasional urge to sign an autograph or what? :P Anyone else have anything that he's signed?
