Not at the moment I am afraid...

I´d love to have a Type I XHSib. That will be a killer jacket.

I could be wrong but I believe that there's technical issues with making an XHS jacket.  Something about the sleeve hole in the body being too thick.

Yes indeed.

The 25oz is so thick that all the felled seams on a denim jacket make it a difficult design challenge to execute well. H managed to 25oz type III vest with all the seams of the front, but the point the arm joins the body in a jacket is full of seams going in all directions that need to be fixed.

Never say never though.

So, I was thinking about this, and I had this idea...  What about a jacket with a 25oz body and 21oz arms?  Then OD it when you're done to even out any colour differences in the denims.  It would certainly be unique!  This would of course be assuming that attaching 21oz arms to a 25oz body would be easier than doing all 25oz.  Just a bit of theoretical daydreaming on my part...  I finally own a Lefty OD, so I have no need for another denim Type III  :)

The 21oz and 25oz are very different denims. Even with OD-ing there would be a noticeable difference in hand and structure. They'd fade and stretch differently too. Not my intention to completely dump over your creative idea, but I guess that's what I just did, sorry  :-X

Since Haraki is into cord again, how about an indigo dyed corduroy jacket? I've seen indigo chinos from another brand and they looked great. A worn in jacket (maybe a non-type III since there are a bunch of those) would look awesome.

No one seems to have asked about this since 2012, so I figure I can probably get away with bringing it up again...  As there's now a 666D and a 777D, would you say the likelihood of a 634D has increased a little?

No, I would not say so.

I hope someday there would be moleskin-canvas shirt in "Carhartt brown". I ordered IHSH-216, but had to return it since it isn't good fit for athletic body type and side seems ended quite high. Western style valance would be better for me.

Can we get more workshirts in non-blue colorways? I know indigo is always a safe bet, but I probably would have nabbed both the linen and the madras if they weren’t blue. Same for the upcoming unbrushed flannel check. It seems the westerns get far more adventurous color schemes. Purple, jalapeño and salt, cayenne and salt, something black and grey with a pop of color like the extra heavy western (87), I’m pretty open to new colors and patterns, I just can’t do much more blue.
I put on my pants the same way you do, I just put on better pants.

^ I second the suggestion from @tvenuto in terms of color preferences, and would like to add a request for short sleeve shirts in non-blue colorways in lighter weights.
Come on IH for the tropics!

That brown flannel UHF came in a work shirt but there didn't seem to be very many of them. Some of the alternative colored chambrays that have been discussed could be a vehicle for that too, bringing back reds, greens, grays, etc.

Heck, why not a brown chambray? Not sure I've seen that anywhere in a work shirt.
Think it, be it.

What about the 721 chinos in nonfading black? Would be even better in 12oz.
