I am not sure that was the initial idea of the Random questions thread. The idea of having one Subject per product (like the 634S thread or the Sexi-whatever thread) is that all questions and answers regarding that product can be found there. That makes much more sense and is much easier than a Random Questions thread that you have to wade through to MAYBE find the answer to your question. Even if you want to ask a question it makes more sense to ask it in a product specific thread because owners of that product will actually frequent that thread.

I'd be very glad for example to weigh my 634SR for anyone who asks.

As in longer than a L34? This note "* If you would like a pair longer than the standard 34" inside leg, please email us. We can do this at a small extra charge, though you will have to wait until the next scheduled production run." is posted at the bottom of the IH-634S product page right underneath the measurements. http://www.ironheart.co.uk/html/indigo634s.htm

No, I think H means he wants a bolt of cloth to get a suit made - yes H?

LHT

Left Hand Twill

This refers to the direction that the denim is woven. Left hand twill denim is softer to the touch than right hand twill, and was originally used by Lee denim. Left hand twill is easy to spot, as the weft threads appear to move upward and to the left as opposed to upward and to the right.


RHT

Right Hand Twill

This refers to the direction that the denim is woven. The opposite of Left Hand twill, this weave is much more common, as almost all jeans are woven with right hand twill. The weft (filler) threads will be visible in upward-right diagonal lines on right-hand twill jeans.

To complete it

Broken Twill

Instead of the twill running to the right or left, broken twill jeans (traditionally considered the cowboy-preferred denim) contain no distinct direction of weave. The weave is instead alternated right and left - the end effect resembles a random zig-zag. Wrangler made the first broken twill jeans in 1964. Broken Twill was designed to combat the twisting effect that was a characteristic regular twill (and considered a 'fault' by many at the time). By going on both directions, the tension in the yarns is balanced in Broken Twill. [additions from ringring]

you can get great fades on both LHT and RHT, but RHT tends to have a tighter weave and LHT usually feels softer. just a couple quick bits
