An update on the fabric: Stretching it is harder than expected but doable. It will just take longer. The new 14 oz is a beast (no surprise, though, it still has IH DNA all over it). I have the feeling it is pretty tightly woven and stays pretty rigid and stiff even after soaking and washing. Therefore it is warm and I would also say the 21 oz beats it in terms of wearability during warmer weather due to its much looser weave.

The 16oz Vintage denim is the best hot-weather IH denim IMHO.

^Interesting. Too bad the 16 oz is marked as being endangered.

Although I am a huge fan of heavyweight denim, the new 14 oz won me over quickly. It's sturdy yet comfortable und represents IH to the fullest. These are my best fitting and probably my favourite pair atm. I'm seriously thinking about grabbing the upcoming bb-version as well despite having the 555-03 already. Hoping both become continuous production items.

After 25ish wears my 888s-142ib are in the wash on the hand wash cycle 30c/800rpm inside out with no detergent.

I could almost not get them on when I first got them with the waist measuring 33.3" but they fitted perfectly everywhere else so I persevered and have ended up with a waist of bang on 35"

I've taken full pre wash measurements so will report back once they are washed and dried with further deets.

Cheers!

A short sleeve western shirt in this material (sizes up to 4xl) would be pretty great.

These do bleed... a lot: they've collected some dust from a walk in a park and after shaking it off my fingers were all blue.

Looks great so far. Keen to see what it would look like with contrast stitching...

I've been tossing up between this denim and the OD one. Will most likely (eventually) get both, but I reckon this will come first. Haven't had a colour like this before

Any more pics/updates?
