Probably won't fade that much......

One-washed - little to no shrinkage

How will this fade over the years?

The cord areas tend to fade or get relatively pale. The whipcord tends to fade or get pale slightly less in comparison.

Here is mine after two to three washes in the washing machine at 60 degrees celsius.  I personally didn't like it so I ended up selling it.

How does this compare to the 526LV - V2 denim? From the measurements, for me it will be size M on this one while being size S for the 526LV. Nevertheless this one is smaller by a tiny fraction in size M as compared to the size S on the 526LV. The olive green would have been a much contrasting color than the 526LV when paired with a indigo denim. I'm tempted to go with this one, but nevertheless I like the indigo given the fact that it will fade in over time.

Did you notice any shrinkage? Didn't you like the fade? What was it that made you sell it off?

I'd say if anything then probably just about a cm shrinkage in length and sleeve length

When I bought it, I loved the brown detail of the corduroy and the dark olive green colour of the whipcord. I sold it because I didn't like how pale the jacket was after a few washes.

Just to be fair: Just because mine turned out this way doesn't mean that every jacket will :)

I have the ihsh-178 but want something in a different colour. Do these type 3 jackets come up a little small? It appears I’d need to go from xxl to xxl.

Type III measurements and shirt measurements are not interchangeable. Example, I take generally XL in shirting and need a p2p of 58cm if I want to wear over and undershirt/tee. I have a type III in XXL with a chest measurement of 57cm that I wear comfortably over UHF’s with a 58cm chest. I have had type III’s with a 56cm chest I can wear comfortably over such shirts too.

Cheers Giles and Neph93

Your assumption was correct, hadn't noticed the compare facility, but looks like my switching between screens to check sizing was correct.



I'm assuming XXL to XXXL....

Run a compare:
