After ever so slowly wearing these, I'm finally at a point where they are well fitting again. Partially because I washed them too hot and also added weight...its on again....but wearing these reminds me if just how GOOD the UHR denim is. Is it completely dead, never ever able to come back?

I would love to see it come back again. Been wearing mine a lot this winter and they’ve now gone past my UHR beetle busters in terms of wear. The denim just gets better and better.

I can’t quite remember the exact reasons for the denim going extinct. But it isn’t like you can pop down to your local fabric manufacturer and say «make this». If the factory that made UHR is closed or that specific loom doesn’t work anymore then you just can’t make it the same way. It wouldn’t be UHR.

I think that Haraki was not keen on making it any longer and I thought it had run its course, so I did not disagree....

Washing some jeans given the good drying weather. IH-888-UHR with somewhere around 150 days of wear. Three or four washes. Not really considered work jeans yet and I forgot I was wearing them when I changed tires on the car and have oil smears everywhere. Still not really considered work jeans
