+1 for Alaska. Colorado and New mexico are great too but be mindful of altitude changes and time to adjust.

Another great spot not on your list is Asheville, NC. you could spend a day going through Biltmore and surrounding are, make sure you have a meal in the Grove Park Inn. Then downtown has lots of shops and great eating and drinking spots. @Appfaff

I will second this!  Spent a week at the Grove Park Inn and the food was outstanding!  While we were there, took a guided day trip to the Biltmore and around Asheville.  Beautiful town and great experience!

Everyone thinking about coming to Asheville, I’m a native, and I live here now! I’m open to meetups, but I’ve also got the inside scoop on food, beers, and cocktails! I will give it some thought and pop a list of my favorites somewhere, if y’all are interested.

@Jett129 Just my $.02, but my wife and I enjoyed the “Sunset Terrace” and the “Vue1913” at the Grove Inn.

I have been to both, and both are excellent.

Giles what's your favorite pair of jeans you ever did? What thing have you made that you're most proud of?

My bet is the 666 cut...

Yes, The IH-666S.  It was my first attempt at designing a jean and speccing a denim.....

I'm very proud of the 25oz denim.

And UHF.  H had given up on making it because the guy who weaves it "has moved to another mill, and I do not know where".  I "suggested" he found out where the guy had moved to and start making it again......

Thanks for sharing that. And again I’m sorry if I offended the cut you designed and are most proud of... holy shit I can really put my foot in my mouth.
Maybe so. Maybe not

for me (IMHO) 25oz is the best denim, ever.

UHR is very, very close second, but I was late to the party and have only had minimal experience with it...hoping H can track that guy down and bring it back.

He has.  It was UHF, not UHR and the conversation was about 4 years ago....
