IH-526V-XHS - 25oz Selvedge Type III Vest

USD400

Just in case our regular IH-526SV wasn't heavy enough, we are now making it from 25oz XHS denim. Some tweaks needed to finalise button placement due to the thickness of the denim.

Complete this form if you would like to know when this arrives at IHUK.

Amazing! Please let a 25 oz 526J happen in the future.

Wow.  Pushing the envelope on what's possible, I see.  Carry on.

This is the vest equivalent of a 25oz 526J..?

This vest MIGHT end up being on my buy list.

*Those chest pockets are gonna be a real job to open and close.

**Make it with 5 buttons instead of 6

The buttons are by no means set in stone, and there are likely to be other tweaks as this was such a brute to construct.

So, what has changed that IH now seems to be able to make jackets/vests from the XHS?

I think I remember before being told that it's just too damn thick to be possible.

It's the joining of the sleeves to the body with a felled seam that causes the issues.  Vests don't have sleeves  :) :) :)

The 20oz IH-SE TypeIII was such a kick in the dick to break in @25oz it's gotta be an exercise in pain. I was recently reminded of this when I washed it for the first time. Thought I'd washed it once before; turns out I had not. Surprise!  :o

H already made impossible things (25 oz OD) and I hope he will bless us with a 526J-XHS (Type III Trucker jacket) one day.
