Both do some pretty great stuff IMHO. However, even after wearing items from both makers, I still find myself coming back to IH...always...

I'll take this opportunity to lodge my standard purple/cream buffalo check work shirt request.
I put on my pants the same way you do, I just put on better pants.

Normally i would say to make at least two of Sam's designs, like rhe monochrome and burnt orange. But then next winter would be getting even more expensive.

Random question: would an uhf with indigo dyed checks (or plain coloured) work? That's something id love to see.
I don't care what people say.. The Max Power way is the right way...

I think this was brought up before and Giles said that the Aspero cotton doesn't take the indigo dye well???  I could be totally wrong but I believe that was the case.

I highly recommend the 3sixteen T's but other than that you're really not missing much.

Just checked the thread again and the Ginger Wanker (burnt orange) is still hands down my favorite.

I will definitely buy that green classic check in a western. Keep in mind please because I selected 4x it because I am wider (fat) not longer (tall). I think the older releases with the smaller sleeve openings and slightly shorter sleeves are a better fit for me.

Has there ever been any experimenting with overdying a UHF?  Like one of the Buffalo or Ombre patters?

I'd imagine it would be challenging given harshness of the process...

True.  I'm sure the shrink factor would make doing a run quite risky not to mention potentially damaging the fabric.  Didn't a batch of 99's get damaged during overdye in the past?

Is there any plan to do a UHF CPO in 2018?  I know the IHSH-157 was a bad seller but I would guess that's due to it being monochrome.  I find myself wearing my CPOs much more than the normal westerns and would like to see another flannel version.
