So I was wrong. Glad I asked, then. :)

Hmmm, a slubby 634 and a khaki chambray shirt for Christmas(ish)...

90% of our denim garments are one-washed.

And I meant the weight of the indigo/indigo is in Haraki's hands....
I mostly wear XHS and UHR so...

What defines a “Classic” versus a “Crazy” Check? Haraki?

No idea.  I guess Classic is what he thinks is classic, and I am pretty sure I coined the term Crazy Check, but it is now lost in the mists of time....I think we had an "Almost Crazy Chack" once too......

While we should all be sensitive to mental health issues, we could introduce a new taxonomy for UHF patterns...

Slightly Loopy Check
Fairly Deranged Check
Borderline Psychotic Check
Utterly F**king Mental Check etc... etc...
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,
Everything under the gun.

Oof, never been asked and never given it any thought until now......

In no particular order....

Aladdin Sane - David Bowie
Transformer - Lou Read
Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin
Origin of Symmetry - Muse
America IV - Johnny Cash

Honourable mentions:

Silent Alarm - Bloc Party
Dear Dead Days - Kassi Valazza
Play Bach - Jacques Loussier
Anthem of the Peaceful Army - Greta Van Vleet
The Clash - The Clash

Great idea for a thread - good idea?

A "desert island" picks thread for music (or books, films, IH gear, etc) is a great idea. I always struggle with those things though.

I do like Giles' picks though. I have not yet watched the Velvet Underground doc on Apple TV but I very much look forward to doing so. I have seen Bloc Party once at First Ave in Minneapolis and they were fantastic. They closed the show (since they were in MN and First Ave) with a stellar rendition of "I Would Die 4 U"  This was before Prince's tragic and premature death.
Think it, be it.
