I've come here to gloat: the IHJ 30 is my favorite winter jacket, at the moment.  I wore it so much more than my N1 last year. 

One thing I would say, my favorite part is that it's reversible.  I would love to see another style of closure like snaps or a zipper on a reversible garment from IH.

I'm voting you off of the island!

IHV-03 and an IHJ-30?!

hahah I'm hoarding all kinds of stuff over here.  That 55 you got off of xtcclassic put you on all of our hit-lists.  Turnabout is fair play.

Hrm, interesting thread. 

✅   So, I used to carry a small pocket knife in my right pocket that actually wore through the cotton pocket bag.  My wife, actually sewed in a small patch of rip-stop nylon into the cotton pocket bag.  This is quite non-traditional, but it might be interesting to offer pocket bags made of rip-stop material. 

✅   This is not a new idea...I've seen it in other genres, but not on the Japanese denim scene.  Also, non traditional, but we all carry around these dang big smartphones now, right?  Maybe a yoke pocket.  Again, very non traditional, I know.

These are both non-traditional ideas that I almost have a problem posting here, but neither disrupt the classic *look* of a 5 pocket jean.  Maybe it's more a Triple Aught Design thing (they already have yoke pockets though -- not a new idea)

Also, I've had an idea for a leather piece bobbling around in my head forever.  Bought my first pair of Iron Hearts from Giles in 2008 and ever since then I've had this idea.

✅  So, many of us carry keys on a caribiner or a key hook or something, right?  The keys jangle around and are noisy.  Lame.  Someone should make a simple cone shaped piece of leather that attaches to a keyring and wraps around keys and keeps them from rattling around.  It can be secured by a snap so that it's easy to unsnap and access your keys.  It shouldn't be big and look like a damn ice cream cone around your keys...just enough to add pressure, squeezing the keys together just enough so they don't jangle around.  Maybe just a 1.5"x3" strip of leather cut so that it forms a cone when snapped together.

At the risk of killing my own idea: Right now, I actually put one of my wife's rubber hair bands around the back end of my keys so they don't rattle around.  Not elegant, but effective and unobtrusive.

Hah, yeah, that solves the same problem.  I guess I was thinking of a different form factor/shape.

Not sure that would encompass my jailer's keychain, but the problem that you've identified is why I pocket my keys.

These days I try not to take keys with me at all, and if I'm driving, just take the car key if possible.
Think it, be it.

That would be the 73.  It’s a great shirt.

The 73 was the tan cord if anyone is looking
