@neph93

That's what I figured. I saw that Taylor Stitch had a beach cloth vest and parka and I also came across a Sugar Cane first zip beach cloth jacket that looked kinda cool. The question is, what new garment could IH make with beach cloth that hasn't already been done, or that wouldn't look out of place?
WTB:
IHSH-129 size L (blue)
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-19

Zip up jackets or vests would be pretty cool. The IHV-09 was a classic beach cloth work vest design and the jacket was also old school.  Something a little more modern and bad ass with a zip would be nice and maybe a bit more IH too.

I always thought that Brown's was a bit out of synch with the normal IH aesthetic and more in line with Mister Freedom, Freewheelers, and the like. It seems like Brown's got super popular for a while and everyone jumped on the bandwagon. I know H is independent, so I'm not saying that's what happened, but I'd hope for something that perhaps stole the snap patch pockets and then used other designs and fabrics to get it out of that early 20th century vibe.
Think it, be it.

I’m not sure it’s necessarily a contradiction to the workwear side of IH. BB had its roots in outdoor and work gear so from that standpoint it fits. However, I can appreciate what you mean about it also being a heritage fabric. For me,the  IHV-09 is an excellent piece and layers well even with UHFs. The shawl coat I liked a lot but in the end, it was a little over the top. Not an Ih piece but I have an MA-1 in blue BB fabric and it’s a cool, subdued take on a classic jacket. So it does seem to lend itself to modern cuts.

That being said, I think a cardigan in Brown’s would be cool but I’m an old man at heart.

Yeah, and I guess the fact that IH has fabrics like duck, hickory stripe, and wabash directly contradicts my point, but then again, the duck is usually much heavier than I'd expect period fabric to have been, and the Wabash is truly a novel fabric (both generations) that wouldn't have existed back then, and delivered in forms like snap shirts that were not around either.

It seems he usually puts some kind of twist on heritage influences, and I didn't see it with the Brown's stuff--but then again, I never saw it in person either.

I'll leave the decision to H, I'm pretty lukewarm about it I am afraid...

I've got one.  Can you guys add like 2 inches to the sweatshirt length?  I'm not even very tall but my IHSW-10-GR tends to end right at my belt line and they're not very fitted so it looks odd, like I'm hula-hooping with a hoodie :)

Sweat tops tend to be far too short for my torso as well.

 I too have issues with all cut and Sewns being short.
Maybe so. Maybe not

Amen to longer tees and sweatshirts! This is the one hole in my wardrobe that is not able to be filled with ironheart—and length is the primary reason

We are trying to get this done on a lot of cut and sewn.

Here's the first - this was easy because they are western only and we ordered shitloads...

We aim to do it with more T's and also sweatshirts, but some things just take a lot of time when dealing with the Japanese.  We first talked to Haraki about this over a year ago....

Patience is a virtue....

Happened to come across a Vintage Levis Type II that had the sleeeves taken off,and was being worn as a vest. I thought that’s a cool idea. It was the sleeve length that kept me out of the most recent iterations.
I've asked for a Type I and/or Type II vest a few times...

I guess since those jacket styles are less popular, combined with vests being less popular, makes it a no-go for now at least

I,pretty much,figured the same thing but after seeing it in the flesh,so to speak,decided to roll the dice and post. I guess I’d have to buy a Type II and cut the sleeves off. Selfedge has an IH Black Type II coming this Spring. Hope it works for me.
