I got boosted last Wednesday. It was fast and easy and I had a similar reaction to my second dose. I felt generally unwell for about 12 hours and that was it. I’ll be at full power by the time I’m supposed to see The Black Angels play in a couple weeks!

Love that jacket but it's just overkill for my climate.

Birkenstock is really going for that medical equipment style. Sign me up!

I have a question about chainstitch hemming. I noticed that the pair of 634-XHS that I had hemmed by Franklin and Poe is different from the hems that IHUK and Indigo Proof have done for me. On the pair from Franklin and Poe the stitching goes down to one thread across the inseam and the others don't.

Is this a difference in technique or should I have these re-hemmed? It seems like with wear the hem will start to unravel. Pardon my ignorance!

Here is a photo of what I'm talking about. The top pair is the XHS from F&P and the bottom is from IHUK.

@palmer your pair is looking awesome! How’s the rocking chair proj going?

It's coming along nicely. I've been documenting the progress and plan on making a post in the arts and crafts thread when it's hopefully completed this weekend. It's made from some really nice tiger oak.

I'm restoring an old rocking chair with my uncle this week. Perfect time to wear my work jeans.


I'm thinking about dying mine...@Filthy @Palmer what was that dye brand you recommended last time I asked about it? Superior to Rit?

Procion dye

Definitely too short.

I have a 3XL of this jacket. I initially bought a 4XL and it felt a bit big and I posted pics earlier in this thread. The general advice was to size down one so I exchanged. That worked great for a while but then I wanted to wash the jacket. I did a cold hand wash because the 3XL fit great out of the bag. Even in cold water the jacket shrunk in the chest so now I can't comfortably button the jacket. It works okay over a t shirt now but I wish I would have just kept the 4XL and did a hot wash on it because I know it would have shrunk down just fine.

If you're between sizes I would definitely size up and use hot water. If you don't ever plan on washing (gross) then size down.

@Nkwkfld I've got some green fatigues and some blue chambray shirts to complete the boondocker look. No sweatshirts or A2 jackets (yet). Wouldn't mind an Aero, though...

@steelworker Thanks! The leather around the top is actually the lining. I think the color is called tobacco. For the midsole I had them do a waxed edge.

Thanks dude! Definitely worth the 7 month wait. I need to take a Wesco family photo with all my different pairs.
