I like the new completely sewn-in patch and its design. Much better than the almost Triple Works one on the 555N for example. But isn't that a bit of an overkill having 16 and 18 oz vintage denims which are almost identical? With the (dying) 17N in between?

Yes, we think so. The N does not sell too well, so is on it's way out. The 16oz, to me, feels more breathable than the 18oz. Not all about the fades  ;)

I find that the variance in a single ounce of fabric weight is quite noticeable in this weight range. Usually the case with anything, while the difference between 23oz and 21oz isn’t so obvious

Case in Point:
16oz weighs 114.25% of the 14oz
18oz weights 112.5% of the 16oz
19oz weighs 105% of the 18oz
21oz weighs 110.5% of the 19oz
23oz weights 109.5% of the 21oz

Just stating that at the lower weights, a 2oz difference has a much more substantial difference in actual heft.

Another beautiful denim in a great cut

Some fades of the sample after a couple of months of wear in rotation with others. (Winter was too cold for these at times!)

Am usually at 37 in the waist so I should be able to slot into a tag 36 and stretch.

Can always look for the largest. We have a few pairs of all the main sizes
