I post this here because it makes more sense, although it was originally conceived as an answer in the Random Questions thread.

It's easy. Only two threads, if at all, are needed.

1. WAYWT: Pictures and description/discussion of whatever you are wearing that day. Just for the shared love of fashion. No IH specific content required.

2. IH Fit pics: Pictures of how IH (!) items fit. Ideally the product's size is given as well as the wearer's weight and measurements. This way if I plan to buy a particular item I can better imagine what it will look like on me.

The IH Fit pics could also be really nicely integrated into each particular product thread. That would be even more practical and organized. Want to find out all bout the IH-03 or the 634SR. Open that thread. Read reviews, see fit pics, get news on that item.

A "What are you doing in your jeans today?" thread seems brainless (sorry). What's the benefit of that? Self glorification? Not needed. IH glorification? Not necessary. I can ride a motorcycle or a horse in my pajama pants or in IH jeans. I can climb a mountain in my underwear or in IH jeans. It doesn't make the wearer or the jeans any cooler to do a specific activity in this item. Thus such a thread is only going to attract ridicule when critical thinking is applied.

I agree.

IH Fit pics and what are you wearing today are 2 great threads.
But - the what are u doing today thread is actually a chance to post pictures of the things you do - travel, biking, fishing, whatever.

My OG 'What are you wearing today' thread was, as I stated in the thread, to get info and such about the product, and indeed to exist as fit pics. Miss Shubz had me change the title a bit cause she is hyperactive and doesn't mind talking people into taking pics of her when she's out  ;D

So yeah, Till: I agree with you. But I don't want a WAYWT thread that doesn't allow comments or questions either.

Edit: Beatle, maybe we can just make a small talk thread then. To talk about your day/ weekend/... Without too much clothes talk.

What doesn´t   make sense is having the You and your Ironhearts and the Fit pix thread in the Ironheart products sub forum.

It doesn't make sense because I did it and I did not really think through the implications.  I would like to see the IH products more as a "catalogue" of IH products - make sense?

"You and Your Iron Hearts" is essentially "WAYJDT = What Are Your Jeans Doing Today?" and should be converted to it. As for the Catalog, YES PLEASE!!!!

Fit Pix can just go into each individual product thread for that particular product. Also, someone please merge the previous conversation from "Random Announcements" as Till is correct. Thank you. Hope this nonsense clears up by the time I get back.

So we'd have the fit pics either as an independent thread or within each product thread and specific to IH products. This will be a very useful product and sales tool.

Then we'd have a WAYWT thread WITH discussion for the love of fashion; not IH specific. This will fuel the flames of the general passion, attract new readers/members and be just plain interesting and inspiring.

Finally, there'd be a thread that allows members to share their other passions be it fly fishing or bottleship building. The activity can be related to IH or jeans but doesn't need to be related. This makes more sense than a "What are your JEANS doing today thread?". After all, my jeans are either being worn, being washed or are hanging on a hanger. They don't do anything without me. ... at least I hope so! :)

Cool. I hope we will see the new product specific threads soon and am looking forward to the WAYWT thread. Is it true that you have to wear at least one piece of IH for pics to appear in that thread and that you can't discuss the outfit? That would take much of the attraction away. For example, if Kiya had wanted to post a pic of his denim suit, that's not IH. Too bad for him. Or say, just for snickers, I wanted to post a pic of me in my new bordeaux/orange ribbon Optimo fedora, I couldn't do that, either, without wearing a piece of IH. I think wearing a piece of IH should be optional in the WAYWT thread. Makes it more fun. And why not discuss the pics? It's a discussion forum after all. No?

WAYWT is for waywt. It doesn't have to be IH. And of course we can discuss or comment on a fit .

I have no idea why you insist on complicating everything by asking more questions that will just confuse everyone? Obviously this forum does not get it.

These should be the threads.

1. WAYWT (Conversation Edition) - Wear any item you want to even if your outfit does not contain IH in it. But in that case, why are you on this forum? I mean I understand the suit thing which sounds fine. If it was a hat or something make a thread for headwear. Just use common sense. It is really not as complicated as everyone is making it out to be. Also Till, you never post photos anyways so why are you so concerned with this topic?
2. WAYWT (Photo Only Edition) - This is so when I or anyone want to browse through photos of peoples outfits, I only have to scroll through 10 pages instead of 50 with off-topic comments.
3. WAYJDT = What Are Your Jeans Doing Today? - Ortherwise known as "You and Your Iron Hearts" should be pictures of you and your jeans engaging in your daily routine. For instance, if you walked your dog and went to a museum you would post pictures to go along with the story/ description of the days events.

Again, there is not need for a Fit Pics Thread as those photos can fall into that items particular thread.

We done now?!?!

Lando - WAYWT and WAYWT chat edition will only make people crosspost pictures.  I'd rather see people comment on fits before this board ends up with a bunch of double posts and they comment on both threads....
