I have four IH pieces with ribbed cuffs and/or ribbed waist;

IHSW-25 (2016) ultra heavy black loopwheeled hooded sweat with off white print

IHW-1O (2016) 26 oz black selvedge Melton wool varsity jacket

IHJ-56 (2017) Supima cotton denim tanker jacket

IHJ-79-BLK (2019) Primaloft Gold quilted rider jacket

and comparing the ribbed material among them I find substantial differences. The ribbed material on the IHSW-25 and IHW-10 is far weaker/thinner than those on the IHJ-79, and somewhat weaker than that on the IHJ-56. To the point where I’m quite certain the ribbed cuffs/waists on the 10 and 25 will give out way before the rest of the garment. In fact the relative thinness and perceived weakness in the ribbed material feels discordant with the strength and sturdiness of the rest of the garment.

There seems to be a positive correlation between earlier items (2016) and weaker cuff/waist compared to more recent ones (2017, 2019).

Curious whether you guys agree with this opinion and are working on bringing the ribbed stuff on par with the sturdiness of the rest of the piece. I’m specifically interested how the ribbed cuff and waist will be on the F/W 21 sweats and hoodies as the burgundy plain hoodie is one of my favorites. I don’t own any more recent hoodies since my 2016 one so I’m not aware whether you’ve made changes to them.
The journey is the objective.

Would it be a massive pain in the arse to publish and maintain a schedule of anticipated restock dates on the core collection? Might save you guys answering the question a million times for various items on various threads and means we can all be ready with our cash

It would be a massive pain in the arse and a ridiculously moveable feast... :) :) :)

But, having said that, we are considering a way to do it that makes some sense....

The IHSH-277 is one of my favorite shirts ever, but the buttons should have been slightly larger or the buttonholes slightly smaller. You feel no resistance buttoning them, which means that they come undone occasionally (at least on mine). I will probably replace the buttons and it will be the perfect shirt.

I only mention this because I know there have been issues on and off with buttons for many years going back to backing buttons quite surprisingly doing the opposite of what they're intended to do on the IHSH-30, and this is a more recent issue.
Think it, be it.

Thank you for the input @mclaincausey I'll input to H

@mclaincausey Mine pops open all the time. I was wearing it the other day and kept being like wtf, I am seriously that bad at buttoning or am I forgetting to button this?? Glad to know it's not just me. LMK what you do to fix the issue, I would love to get it resolved as it's not that wearable the way it is.

You could add a couple of stitches to reduce the size of the buttonhole slightly. That might work and it's a pretty easy process.

Good thought @Chris thank you. I usually get westerns @zhivago but that 277 was irresistible!

$0.02: I preferred the older T-shirt fabric, which was heavier and IMO a bit softer than the newer, which to me is harder to distinguish from a plain ole Hanes shirt. Still great, but for me not AS great.

The fabric was great, but the cut was iffy........And it is a difficult discussion to have with H because he will take it very personally  - "Love the fabric, don't like the cut"

Also, for some reason the variance in sizing in the 7.5's are enormous, we have had to send a load back because they were unwearable for a normal shaped human being.

The 6,5oz came out in a better cut, so that what we decided to back.....

Not sure if this is the right place but I can't think of anywhere better.

Maybe you need some sort of health warning on the website or product labels.  Since Thursday I keep catching myself grinning like an idiot.  My face hurts and what about my reputation as a semi-professional misanthrope?  ;)

When I check out sizing of new stuff I always use the 'add to compare' site and go with two finger along the relevant columns. That would be much nicer if it was possible to click and highlight columns (and lines) in the sizing tables.

Don't know if that's possible but would be a nice feature ...

I second that! That would be really handy...
