Was there a massive change in the second version of the 19oz denim?

I’ve never had anything in the 1st generation lefty but I hear it was stiff. The 2nd gen was designed to be softer and my pair of 666 are certainly soft after some wear. The other things you mention would exacerbate that.

I wasn't around these here parts when IH produced chore/rail jackets. I get the sense that this style jacket isn't in line any year soon for a comeback... Sound about right?

It feels so different, i tempted to trade in my V1 for a OD one. But then the denim head in me doesn't like to be beaten and I might just wear it for work and try and beat some softness into it.

Understandable. IH has a strong brand identity, which is what makes it so wearable and easy to combine most items (but most brands of merit do).  It seems to have been more refined this last year or so. Moving away from 30s and 40s American workwear to more practical bike friendly wear?

Thanks for confirming mate. It feel like body armour compared to V2

Hello,

I am looking to buy about 12-14 yards of Japanese selvedge chambray fabric (7-10 oz).

I have already tried searching for it in DrySelvedge, Pacific Blue, Etsy, and Premium Denim Outlet. Are there any retailers/jobbers/mills that can ship this fabric without any MOQ (minimum order quantity) to India?

Thanks,
Sreeni

P.S> At a time when one can buy just about everything on the internet, I find it surprising that there isn't much choice for buying selvedge fabrics.

In fact Matty, you've tipped me over the edge  :)

Burgundy is lovely but brown roughout is amazeballs. I think the Burgundy domain looks best on a dressier build.

Brown roughout also goes with absolutely everything. My Smokejumpers are easily my most versatile boot (which is why I’m building a Wesco Boss based on them ).
