Y’all recommend hand washing for loopwheel tees as opposed to an American top
Loader?

I use the local laundromat, which is far from new & up to date ha. It’s a front loader but probably as old as me!

Loopwheeled t-shirts are no more delicate than other t-shirts.  I wash all of mine exactly the same in standard top loading washers and have never had any problems.

Hey G, so I totally get that the 25oz tests the limits of what’s possible in terms of heavy weight denim. And I love the XHS, it’s by far my favorite and go to denim. But have there every been any talks of IH possibly trying anything heavier? I know Naked and famous does a 32oz and I heard Samurai does something like a 25oz UHR that when soaked shrinks to 27oz.

Just curious, still very happy with IHs denim offerings, but just wondering....

Haraki almost killed me when I asked for 25.  We will not go heavier...

With all our other denims, we get a known percentage of 2nd and 3rd grade denim when we weave it (it's different for each type of denim, but it is known and it is constant).  With the 25oz, the amount of 2nd and 3rd grade it totally unpredictable.  We believe we are at the limit of what is sensible.....

Understandable, and again like I said, IH’s XHS is my favorite with the 21/23oz UHR a really close 2nd...

Really hoping the upcoming Boss Cut (which I am predicting will replace the 634 as my favorite cut) is a success so we can see some heavier iterations.

Sage Seesmore, the Indonesian brand?

My only familiarity is following them on IG for 2 years, because their denim is gorgeous, and fades amazingly
