1.Atari Fade- This jacket has been overdyed black with a fugitive pigment dye which is an unstable and un-permanent dye that fades to later show the indigo denim underneath. Essentially this is a denim that begins black and fades to indigo in high friction areas, or what the Japanese call the "atari" fade. (that is a copy/paste from self edge on the IH OD type III)

2. Hidden Placket- I figured this could use a proper definition and be included.

3. Cuffing- Single, Double, Tokyo Turnup, etc.

4. Over Engineered - gotta be something here

5. Release Date- means absolutely nothing

Good man. This is what we need. Brainstorming and as many suggestions as possible so the glossary can grow rich and fat.

Ventile also japanese ventile
is a registered trademark used to brand a special high-quality woven cotton fabric first developed by scientists at the Shirley Institute in Manchester, England. Originally created to overcome a shortage of flax used for fire hoses and water buckets, its properties were also found to be ideal for pilots' immersion suits.

Extra-long-staple (ELS) cotton fibres are used to form a low-twist yarn, which is then woven into a tight high-density textile to create a 100% cotton fabric, capable of providing an effective barrier against inclement weather. In wet weather the softly spun yarns - within the tight weave - dynamically expand to form an effective barrier against the elements. (Wiki)

It is too long but interesting

Blanked Lining lining out of woolen blanket
Red bondage lining red cotton lining to improve wind resistance

The 21 oz effect: makes you thinking if you wearing "normal" jeans you would wear stuff out of newspaper or so

Here’s one...In light of the popularity of the recent Indigo Fade Competition,there’s a lot of talk about “CONTEST JEANS”,by contestants or by manufacturers who are making special edition  jeans for contestants to wear In the contest. Early on in my IH days there was a Denim World Championship for which IH was making a special limited edition jean. I ordered a pair because I thought they were really cool,not thinking I might be depriving a genuine contestant of the opportunity to have them. When I voiced my concern I was told not to worry. Nonetheless Contest/Competition jeans might need a space in the glossary.

This is splendid work, sir!  When I first opened it, I thought there might be 20 entries in there, but I've been going through the list for a few minutes now and I'm still on the Bs :D

I'll be writing updates based on what has been mentioned here in the next week or two. Last chance to throw more terms into the ring.
