I have cut them off before right next to the hem. Or you can cut them shorter. Tie it in a knot or melt it with a lighter if you're worried about it.

The chain stitch will naturally unravel if cut or abraded (like on our hems on jeans). On older shirts like the Ihsh-16, there was no bartack near the bottom hem. If cut, and not tied or melted, it could unravel up the seam. Nowadays there is a bartack, so if you cut the run-off at the hem, it is unlikely to unravel further up the seam. The bartack is key.
Waiting for the time when I can finally say, that this has all been wonderful, but now I’m on my way...Phish

depends on what you priority is.

Bose's noise cancelling is second to none in the non-audiophile market. however, their sound quality/ EQ is pretty balanced and flat. if you're an audiophile, I would recommend shure. they're not noise cancelling but noise isolating. nonetheless, it still blocks out quite a bit of outside noise.

Thanks @louisbosco I am almost deaf so like not really an audiophile. I was more curious if they are actually comfortable. I have my Samsung earbuds in rn and they are almost like torture. Like nails on the chalkboard conveyed into a feeling on my skin...

@Filthy earbuds are pretty customisable to suit your ear needs. I'm sure that most ear buds come in rubber tips. there are also plenty of cushion ear tips you can swap over and they come in different sizes. the cushion ones I find are much more comfortable as you squeeze them when you insert and it moulds to your ear canal..

Thanks. I am kind of underwhelmed by the battery life. But perhaps I need to do a full charge?

yeah probably. all electronics are not shipped with full capacity so when you buy them, there's some juice left but it's definitely not 100%

They need a firmware update too according to the app. I am glad I bought them. I listened to 3 of my all-time favorite albums yesterday and it was like hearing them over for the first time again. The noise cancellation doesn't seem like a huge deal until you throttle it down and hear the roar of the plane over the music.

Kinda popped into my head this afternoon when sending opinionated emails back and forth about Tanner Goods: where do you guys source your leather patches from? I just love how they age, etc., and wouldn't mind knowing more about them.

I don't know, and it's the sort of thing if I asked H, I'd get a non answer......
