I don't know the definite answer to that.  I thought for a while that having a button at the neck was to prevent beard hair getting caught in the snap, and then we started making shirts with snaps all the way through..

Not if you want to use selvedge denim, want a flattering cut and preserve the selvedge ID on the outseam

But the taper from crotch to hem on any cut is done on the inseam to preserve the selvedge outseam. Like I said, I'm no pattern cutter, not trying to argue, just trying to understand... Why can't the last 4" be parallel to the outseam?

They do indeed get caught on the female part of the snap.
I've got a feeling, you know what you did... Phish

On cheaper non-IH brands, I have that problem of whiskers getting caught in the snap's crimp. But I've never had that problem w/ IH snaps. Quite remarkable actually, and another small sign of IH superior quality.

Probably not the reason, but snaps require you to mash the snap from the outside against whatever flesh is underneath it, be that in this case your neck or a digit. Perhaps that's thought to be awkward at the neck.
Think it, be it.

Good point.  And maybe it is possible.I'll talk to Tom and H next time I see them.

I'd love to do a work jacket and will give it some thought, historically the ones we have made have not sold well, but that is probably because the cuts were significantly less than ideal :-)
I was thinking of IH existing Work Jacket in hickory stripe. I love the simplicity of the Work Jacket.

Exactly what were going to do and then we decided to do a Type III instead - sorry....

Update on the relevant thread shortly but I’ve recently invested in the PIHAN10T and that denim is the absolute tits. I’m bowled over. Anything else made out of it will have my attention.

Indeed. I feel kinda silly for not having worn my pair yet. I'll have to get off my lazy butt and make the drive across town to get them hemmed  :D
