Shirting / Re: IHSH-284-IND - 6oz Wabash Short Sleeved Work Shirt - Indigo

Anyone else have anything similar happen to them with this shirt?

My 284 lost one of the bottom and several of the other buttons started coming loose.  My mom replaced that button with the top collar button and redid the three other buttons with loose threads.  Thanks mom!

My UHF had stretched back out after the couple times I've washed and hang-dried them.  They start off a little tight after a wash but will return back to where it needs to be. 


...and no changes on the body length, right? 

I've got it in my mind to shorten the length with a tailor but that gets me into a whole other world I am not yet familiar with...


Anyone with a size XXXL find that the sleeves and shoulders a bit too long?  Had anyone done a hot wash and found it helped with fitting?

As of now, all sizes sold out.  Amazing. 

When I had previewed this shirt some months ago I honestly thought it might be the most popular shirt to be sold on IH in 2021... but then that Grey & Indigo western flannel charged in by storm.  heh

I own the western indigo wabash in the heavier weight but can't seem to merge it into my regular rotation even though I still really like it. 

Then, when I saw this SS in a light weight, I got pretty excited because it appears as something I could wear regularly as it feels and looks somewhat more casual and wearable in a wider variety of social situations and in warmer weather.

Also, two year old generally appreciates when i am not wearing something that feels like armor and this beautiful, lightweight wabash will fit the bill quite nicely.

Within about 10 minutes of this shirt getting posted I bought the last XXL.  Whoa!

Looks like these are still running a size larger than normal, just as they had when measurements were taken back in 2018.  eh?

Thanks for sharing those great photos, @Chap   I am finally getting a real sense of this jacket...

Does anyone own this jacket that's also wearing it on a consistent basis??  Would be cool to see how its been developing.  I'd bet it would spur all sorts of demand for this overlooked beauty. 

How cool would it be if IH made a wool or rayon lined version?  Oh!  Even better yet... how about this 21 oz indigo serge fabric made into one of those tanker jackets with black heavy ribbed zip-through collar, cuffs and waistband??  lol... if you guys made one of those updated tanker jackets with any sort of indigo cotton I'd be ready for it.

Any way, I digress.  Would just like to see if anyone's been making nice progress on this jacket.

Wearing them wet kicks the stretch into overdrive.  I also sometimes wear some cut off sweatpants to stretch the top block on stuff. This idea has been ridiculed by my peers. But it works. You can get a cheap pair at Walmart for $5 and chop them off at the knee. I use a garbage quality pair of Left Field I got that I hated.  :D

I think maybe my comment was unclear: I wear the sweatpants under the jeans and button up everything but the top button.

I like your suggestion with the sweat pants and might give it a go. 

I scored the Self Edge like-new version of these slim fade-to-black for a ridiculously low and impossible-to-pass-up $150 and they are now part of my weekly rotation.  That day I was truly blessed by multiple gods from multiple religions.

I sometimes throw this pair on right after a shower and without drying my legs. Expect a struggle as they won't simply slide on, that's for sure.  Then I do some morning stretches and wear them through them through as much of the day as possible until the breaking-in discomfort becomes too much of a distraction. Might change into a far more comfortable pair of overdyed 634s I own and which are well broken in (slow fader, though) after having done occasional farm work in them.  Also, I run out into a rain storms with my denim, from time-to-time, and this helps with loosening the fabric but try not to get them too wet as I don't know whether softening them too much affects the fade potential.  Who the hell cares though, right?

With the added sweat pants to help me stretch the top block a bit hopefully it can help me to not feel like I'm crammed into a sausage casing. 

Also, looking at @AdamJ 's posting is a great inspiration to keep going.  ... and love the look and condition of that leather patch.  Might be a good idea for me to treat my own leather patches as I'm noticing how nice it can look.

Really like this jacket and how clean it is without the embroidery in the front.  Very clean, beautiful silhouette, and super cool with the popped collar.  Any chance of making this jacket in the sort of unsanforized denim that was used on that N1 jacket?

Does the 22OD type 3 from Self Edge match fairly close to the 21OD denim jeans?  I think the weft is said to be beige whereas the denim jeans are white?  Looking to make me a Canadian tuxedo but it might look weird if the two denims were slightly off from one another... especially as they start fading. 

...maybe it doesn't matter...

Wow @Wlemon !  Looks great on ya! 

How are you getting on with it given the lack of pockets?
