    Both are based on the 634, which is a straight cut with medium rise.. The 633 is exclusive to SE. It's the 634 rise and thigh, with taper from knee to hem. The 888 has the same thigh dimensions as the 634, with some taper from the knee to hem, but not as much as the 633, and a higher rise. When the 888 was released a few years ago, there were a lot of folks saying it had more room in the thigh than the 888. Giles never mentioned that in the description.

    I'm not as worried about it shrinking in a wash (as I could size up to account for shrinkage). I'm more concerned about how the texture of the wool fibers would be affected by washing. As I've said, in my experience some merino wool garments wash just fine, others do not. I'd much prefer to wash - even hand wash - than take it to the dry cleaners.

    I just ordered my first one, an XL in Khaki. After my fiasco w/ the TS merino sweater, I do not plan on washing it, only dry clean. @julian-wolf now you've got me thinking maybe I should have gotten a XXL... @kiya - how do these merino thermals fair with a wash? Recommendations, as some merino garments wash well and others do not. Thx!

    633 is a great cut, one of the best, IMO. The amount of taper from knee to hem varies between runs. I have the 633-XHS and the hem is around 8", which is right where I prefer it to be. Some runs have too much taper, IMO. 888 has too high of a rise for me.

    The Flat Head

    I picked up TFH Single Riders jacket in a 42 from R&H back in the early summer. It was too hot to wear it when I got it, so it sat for a few months. I started wearing it when it got cool enough in the fall, and immediately realized the 42 was too small. With just a tee, it fits like a well tailored shirt. Buit with any type of over shirt it's too tight and restrictive. So i got the 44. To me, the 44 looks big on me, but it's very comfortable and easy to wear. I sent fit picks to Danny and his crew, he replied saying that he and everyone there said the 44 looks like a much better fit. I'm selling the 42 and have it listed in the for sale thread. It's a truly gorgeous jacket! It's just about everything I've wanted in a leather jacket. From the fit, styling, leather, and details.

    The Flat Head Single Riders jacket. Size 42. Purchased new from Rivet & Hide. Worn a few times times. The 42 is too small for me, so I got a 44. With just a tee shirt, it fits like a well tailored shirt. But with any type of over shirt, it's too tight and restrictive. 1.3mm Shinki horse hide, veg tanned, part aniline. Universal brass zips. Black te core (it's a really really dark brown, not true black). DM to discuss. Measurements, from R&H: Chest: 45" Waist: 21" Shoulder: 20.25" Opening: 20.5" Vertical length: 27" Sleeve length: 25.5"

    The Flat Head

    The 3004 looks great. Agree it is a good idea to have a cut that's roomy in the top without an aggressive taper, as has been the trend in the past few years. However, I'm not sure I'd get this cut before the 3009. 3009 appeals to me and been on my want list.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    This scope is what White's did for me years ago when I had my SJ's rebuilt. I think it's standard - the only parts that are kept are the upper leather, tongue and eyes. Cost is considerably less than a new pair of boots. I have wonder how much savings is there, considering how much is salvaged.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    The gauntlet has been thrown down. Incredible work! They're now a moc-toe SJ's. From what little I know of the history of the PNW boot makers, Otto taught Nick how to make boots, and then left to start his own company. @shredwin_206 we expect a report when you've had some wear on them. Congrats!

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    No, I wasn't clear, that not on TS, it's all on me. I didn't follow their care instructions, and I f'd it up. I don't like TS because I can't stand their marketing, campaigning. And the couple of things I've bought from them I've been underwhelmed by and returned. I'd hoped to like the sweater, and would have kept and worn it.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Confession time: I recently took delivery on a Taylor Stitch merino wool henley. I had a small credit with them, and stumbled on the pre-order months ago. So it was a good price. It arrived last week. It was ok, meh, nothing to get excited about, but nothing really wrong with it. Care instructions said to hand wash or dry clean. So I thought I've had other merino wool sweaters that I've machine washed on gentle cycle, it'll be ok. Well, I f'g up it real good. Shrunk a ton, got ridiculously fuzzy, shed an incredible amount of lint all over my place, and left an absurd amount of lint in my washer than got all over the clothes I washed next. I was so mad I could've spit fire. <delete>
  13. Already found the Icebreaker sweater (I actually have a hook-up that I shouldn't discuss... ). Don't care for that Filson sweater.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    The first response is to wash & dry inside out, and always solo without any other clothes. When new, I'll wash my jeans in hot water and use a hot dryer for 15-20 minutes until damp, to get the shrink out, and then hang until dry. I don't turn right side out until completely dry, as when wet the denim is most susceptible to crease fading. Washing & drying outside out will result in fading at the creases. After several washes and the excess dye is removed, crease fading is less likely.

    Warehouse

    LOVE that hickory stripe western. That's gone right to the top of my Want List. Being lazy and haven't looked - can that be purchased directly thru Warehouse, or thru reseller (once available)?

    Samurai Jeans

    @oomslokop yeah, saw those on the 'net somewhere. I still love Samurai, although some of their collabs don't do it for me, too much going on. These seem really cool. Strongly considering, and have wanted a pair of 710's for a long time. I really dig them, but I've had a very expensive year, and a long need/want list...

    Kapital jeans

    Kapital's sashiko (or whatever it really is) is so rad. Their sashiko trucker jacket is at the top of my list for years.

    I've been seriously considering exactly the same... I don't have any Warehouse, and am very curious about the Samurai tees.
