Any chances of doing this in 666 ?

We did not get anywhere near enough interest for either the 777 or the 888.  Given that, I know we would not get enough interest for a 666.

damnit missed this thread, but looks like my one vote wouldn't have swung anything anyway

By the way, I voted for 888, I mistook it for 666 for a min, I am wearing 666 happily and would like to stick to it in future. Please excuse and discount my 888 vote, sorry for the trouble.

i hope you don’t take the lack of interest to be for forum jean idea. i feel like the the beige weft ‘dirty denim’ is a bit of an acquired taste. for what it’s worth though i probably would have gone for them in a 666 cut. even if it’s your least popular cut it’s maybe the least partisan?

666 cut of the indigo/black would get there i bet but maybe that cabalizizes your 555/888 release (wait a while and try if there’s still enough material?)

try a vote with over dyed 25oz 666s! not sure how you’s make them forum unique though... patch would be too complicated/expensive. maybe black thread?

666 is still my favorite cut as well, which should be obvious by my signature. Just gotta represent.  ;)

Shame that this looks to be a non-starter. Forum jeans seem like they should be a thing. It would be a feather in the cap of the brand and the forum and an exclusive bit of kit. For this reason alone something a little different (brown weft, coloured arcs) seems appropriate (he brown weft is also glorious). Maybe some time in the future...

I was in because I wanted a pair of forum jeans to be made but I gotta admit brown weft didn't exactly light my fire.

I think a new denim should be bought out in a forum special jean before being released as a regular jean

Maybe a gray weft would be more popular? I'd be in for red or green but.... probably not many others.

I don’t think colored wefts like red or green suit the IH aesthetic. Kinda gimmicky like N&F

It's not really that brown:

And we have enough denims in stock or in the works that contemplating a new denim with the minimum run requirement of 400 pairs is just not sensible I am afraid.

That brown weft is beautiful. If the Pronto pair that utilises it gets a restock I’m having a pair regardless.

We have quite a lot of this denim available to use.  I'm thinking of what to do with it......

Approx. how long to production if a product was specced and a sample ordered today? Three months?
