@Giles

Any news on that type III that’s using the 22oz Pronto denim?

We have an unwashed XL sample if anyone would like to buy it.

Here's one way to add hand warmer pockets to a Type II

How do you like it? I have to say I find that solution a little hard on the eye.

Not sure... I don't dislike it. I don't think it looks bad. I like the concept and practicality/functionality of it. I appreciate the thought that went into it to make it work and still look good. It's a flat lay pic, and in a fit pic I think it would better. Hand warmer pockets on a Type II are a lot harder than a Type III due to the pocket placement and larger size.

I think it looks fine, but it could also be done with tonal stitching for a stealthier approach.

The contrast stitching on the pockets is certainly my issue with it. The effect on visual composition, in relation to the chest pockets is off and it makes the effect is that the jacket’s front looks crowded and busy. The bar tacks at each end of the opening on the hand-warmers also throw the balance off by dint of drawing even more attention to them. Tonal stitching would solve, or at least mitigate the issue.

I’m on the fence when it comes to hand-warmers on type III’s, but at the end of the day I can get on with them because of the way they can be integrated into the traditional design without too much fuss. I think the og design of the type II makes this harder, and for my money, the given example would not be the way to go. But that is just me.

This method does not affect the appearance and is currently the best solution.

That's a cleaner way to do pockets on a Type II, and I like zippers on hand warmer pockets for security when you don't have you hands in them. My only comment is having pocket openings on the side seams might make them slightly awkward to use. What brand is that?

What about wool shirts? IH has done a couple in the past, correct? How well did they sell? Any plans to do more? UHF fabric is all that, but it is cotton. In the mountain communities cotton is affectionately and appropriately know as Death Cloth. I'd never wear a UHF for any extended vigorous outdoor winter activity, but I would definitely wear an IH wool shirt.

Nice mock-up. IMO, IH's chest pocket could be slightly larger, and raised higher to align the the upper pleat stitch.
