Alpaca lined type III is a great shout :o

Personally not a fan of sherpa lining, particularly when visible on the collar but that's down to preference.

Blanket lined 21oz Type III is not outside the realms of possibility.
The devil is in the detail..

Yeah, to me the white polyester sherpa looks cheap. That's why I was trying to think of a way IH could somehow improve it.

Blanket line all the things! Also not averse to UHF fabric as a liner ;)
Think it, be it.

That makes a lot of sense to me. Not tryina hijack your idea, but I could see a brown corduroy collar on that.

Would there be any interest in a tonally stitched version of this lined type III?
The journey is the objective.

Yes to any/all of these ideas with tonal stitching.

I’d like to see a duck modified type III with brown cord collar. I realize it would look similar to the first zip duck jacket but I’m thinking it would look especially cool in type III form. Or a black duck type III/black cord collar. Or a navy duck/navy cord collar

I would love if IHUK would have sleeve hemming services in the future. For people who don’t ride motorcycles:)
Probably quite difficult but surely not impossible?

Not impossible, but certainly more of a spesialist tailoring job than simple hemming. You have to remove the cuff, while maintaining it’s integrity, cut a new gusset, possibly alter and move buttons/buttonholes then re-attach the cuff.

If IH take 20USD for a hemming job on jeans you’d be looking at 100USD to have shirt arms hemmed. And with all respect to the otherwise very talented crew in Gosport, I don’t think any of them are trained tailors.

Agreed. It’s a much more complicated task, but I think could be worth it for some people. The recent Storm Rider would have a perfect product for it (although even more difficult because of the lines sleeves)...

I think there comes a point where we have to accept that despite the price, quality and existing standard for jeans being hemmed by the shops/brands that sell them, this is not, nor is it intended to be, bespoke gear.

The tendency for people to get their jeans extensively tailored, and the search for the perfect garment fit is possible for everyone if they are so inclined. But it is probably best for everyone concerned that this type of alteration is purely an aftermarket thing, offered by professionals in that field.

A tailor would remove the sleeve and hem it at the top then reattach it to the armhole.
