If I choose the 'stack' option, and I get impatient later on can I just pay the postage?

weightlifter question: if i can get one of my guys (or several) to order direct (not a retailer), would IHW be willing to take thigh dimensions from the customer to check if some tailoring can be done on site?
follow up: how much?

details: literally between the crotch and knee

thanks,
Mike

By IHW do you mean IHUK?  The only tailoring we do is chainstitching.  But we are more than happy to help to see if any of the styles we make will work.  Currently the largest thighed jeans we do are the 1955S, but the new cut we are working on will have a larger thigh than most of our models....

I'm wanting to accelerate the fade of a pair of my IH's and value the opinions of this forum. aka wash /dry repeatedly.   so... should i choose my xhs or s-b's?

I'd also thought about doing an ISO/WTB thread for a faded pr but not many other larger size peeps around.

There is no route to accelerate fades, other than wear harder.  You want them to be generally lighter all over with no contrast, then wash the shit out of them, but remember, indigo is oxidised onto the surface of the warp, you need to abrade that to make the warp lighter.  Doing that means washing right side out, washing right side out is a recipe for white line disaster.

My honest opinion is, don't try.
