No date yet I am afraid.  In the queue, but quite a long way down....

Will UHR and SII be released this fall?

UHR unlikely. SIIv2 definitely not, it's a 20 year anny gig and that is not until next year.....

Ooooh, look at what is ready to start sampling.....

"unnamed.jpg"

Yep, it is the UHR (AKA 21/23).

H says it looks almost identical to the previous weave (we are using the same tiny factory, and the same loom as before), so we are pretty confident it will look and behave the same as the last iteration.  But we will sample all 5 core cuts, just to be doubly sure...

And news on the new raw (with the new super-secret technique Haraki has developed)....

He's unhappy with the look and feel of what he has woven to date.

So we are starting again with the UHR as the base from which to work.  We will use a beige weft and aim for a finished weight of, wait for it, 21oz... :D :D :D :D

Giles, there's two iterations of UHR? Or Haraki-san is unhappy with that version of the fabric from your picture there?! I can't wait to see the stuff you guys have planned for the anniversary.

No.  There is one iteration of UHR.  It is this:

"unnamed.jpg"

We have woven enough for 500 pairs jeans.  I just told H to triple it.

No other raw denim else exists at the moment.  But Haraki has been working on a new concept of raw denim for a couple of years now.  He is unhappy with everything that has come off the loom.  So he is going to take the principles of UHR and apply the concepts he has developed for the new raw and come up with something that after washing/shrinkage will be about 21oz.

It will not be UHR and it will not replace it.

Fair to say, my favourite IH denim tends to be the one I am wearing the most at any given time. That being said UHR is so much fun. A real denim head's denim, temperamental, difficult and very, very beautiful. Like my wife.

Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,
Everything under the gun.

Might be the light of the photo, but that UHR looks like it starts out a brighter blue than the other denims? Looks great

It does, but not as much as the photo suggests....
