Invested in this beauty a couple if weeks ago. My IH-526j-OD was an early IH purchase for me about five (maybe six?!), years ago and I’vr loved it ever since. It is a touch big though and gets use over hoodies and UHF’s in the autumn, spring and milder sections of winter.

When this came out it spoke to me both as an updated, over-a-tee version of that beloved jacket, but also because it was the 22oz, which is just a brilliant denim. I was really conflicted about doubling up on OD type III’s but prioritised it. So glad I did.

.     Exactly what he said. Measurements just didn’t work for me,but in light of me selling my OD TypeIII,I would have bought this. Have to live vicariously through you.

Looks great on you, @neph93. What size is that compared to your OD?

Great look @neph93 ! I waffled over getting this one...find it lovely.

The journey is the objective.

Thanks gents. I love it. The 22oz is just a tad more dense  a weave than the 21oz, and the jacket on the whole oozes solidity.

@wdw this in an XL, my IH-526j-OD was an XXL. My IH-526-PQ is an L, but they came up a little differently.

I don’t know how many of these have been sold but I’m going to try a populate this thread often over the next few years. The plan is to wear this regularly over a single layer, then use it as a shirt, under the C3 vest or N-1 jacket in the colder months. There is also a very real risk of me getting the ivory/white N-1 vest from FW20 when they drop, just because I think it will look awesomeballs over this.

Now THATS a solid plan.
Will be interesting to watch it change in a year.

@neph93 looks so awesome. I was thinking about getting this over the 19oz but I find that I don't wear my type IIIs if they don't have handwarmer pockets. Has that been an issue for you at all?

Yes and no, but mostly no.

My first type III was old school, and I didn’t care about the lack of handwarmers. Since then I’ve had som type III jackets and vests that include handwarmers and have had some use for them. The actual pockets themselves I never use, not even for warming hands. However, I do like the internal pockets that the handwarmers create for sticking my phone in. All that being said, I carry a bag with me at all times so it really isn’t a problem.

At the end if the day, many of the modified type III’s come up too long for me too, so the combination of a cleaner look, and a better fit far outweighs the lack of pockets.

Pretty much the same for me, too. I only use the handwarmer pockets as a place to stick my fidgety hands. I have an "old school" 21oz type III, and I love the length and how the "top" pockets are much larger than the new versions with the handwarmer pockets. I just always find myself groping for them whenever I wear it out of habit. The length alone make me pick this one up instead of the 19oz version.

Looking good, @neph93 . I'll be living vicariously through you, for the time being. I haven't done more than try mine on, since it arrived. High temps have been 10 degrees F above normal. Hell, overnight temps have rarely dropped below 20C.

So tempting to try Double OD with my newly ordered 555-01od. Similar size with IH-526j old version? My 526j is Medium.

I think doubling up in OD is actually easier than doubling on indigo. I have two jackets, one CPO and two pairs of jeans in OD, all in different phases of wear rangling from well faded to brand new, and I wouldn’t hesitate to combine any of them.

As for sizing use the compare function on the site. I had a look for you and I would say the L in the IH-525-22OD comes closer to the IH-526j. But you should definitely have a look yourself.
