because why not
Because it would be impossible to produce these in any (if any at all) meaningful quantities.  Constructing the jeans are on the edge of what is possible, a Type III is significantly more complex from a constructional point of view....

Trying a smaller size (Medium). It fits better, but I might as well use your expertise to see if you think I got the right one this time.

Yes, it looks great! The denim will settle and you still have some room left to soak/wash it.

Just bought a XXL on a trip to rivet and hide. Shoulders are a little boxy at the moment but they will drop with wear and a soak. Other than that fits like a dream. Sleeves are a good length too. Not quite as long as my 17oz natural indigo type III, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. All in all a beautiful jacket. Very happy.

Great buy @Stuart.T I've always coveted this but the modified type III's are not for my body type. Love to see a fit pic:)

Really happy with this jacket. Wore it last night and today so I'll give it a soak this week and hopefully put some fit pics up after 1 soak.  The combination of slightly longer body (doesn't ride up when I sit down/drive) and slightly shorter sleeve than some IH type III make this pretty perfect for me.]

That's what puts me off pulling the trigger. The shoulders look absolutely huge. I'm not the sort of person who wears the same jacket everyday too, simply as i own so many great jackets. so not really sure theer's much point in me buying it. Looks like it's designed to be worn everyday for a few years in order to get the full aesthetic & fit.

Soaked today for 1hr at 30 degree in bath. I'm leaving it out over night to dry. Definitely some shrinkage. I just put it on damp to stretch it where needed. I think the shoulders have calmed a bit! Chest and waist ok, I'm hoping the 'problem midriff will be ok too.
