Shit happens........But honestly, I think you'd regret it.....

lol...I know!  IIRC you have said (or someone at IHUK) that this is extremely dense and unbreathable denim?

The 25oz breathes like linen by comparison.

well shoot, maybe you guys have talked me out of this then.

TRUST IN THE JOURNEY!

If you're married, you can surely survive a pair of jeans...

It's also probably the best denim IH have ever made (at least out of the ones I've tried) . Really spectacular stuff.

G & Megatron,

1. Please use a heavy fabric (standard in other IH jeans) for the pocket bags. The herringbone fabric used in the UHR Beatle Busters was too thin and fragile in my opinion, especially for such an abrasive and stubborn denim like the UHR.

2. Will hemming be free?

3. Will the 888-UHR cost the same or more?

Thanks!

I still don't know what way to go with these. There is part of me that wants them but then the fact how unwearable they will be in the summer months puts me off. #firstworldproblems

We'll use the same fabric as in the vintage jeans, our new standard heavy twill

Hemming will be free

The IH-888-UHR will be USD395

I've worn mine the whole last summer. It's definitely doable.

What were you doing in them? I will be landscaping in them so hard graft and sweating my nuts off no doubt. I am doing ok in 16oz Samurai's at the moment but this unbreathable UHR makes me a little concerned. I did 2 years straight in the 25oz but I was in air conditioning most of the working day then.

Just existing in clothes in Jakarta is a challenge, when I see Indonesians posting pictures wearing heavy denim I feel that I must salute their lunacy  :'(

Just to clarify. There will be 3 versions of the 888 coming out. The S, NT, and UHR. However the NT & UHR will be same denim, just different details?
