    Anybody got some RS02 Nihon in 34 or 36 they’re willing to sell?

    They both look great! Is it the pics, or does the 25oz seem to have a bit of royal blue tinge?

    Your multiple listings alone are probably influencing lower prices. Supply vs. Demand. I have noticed you buy a lot, then sell them after something new comes along. I purchased a pair of IH634 from you years ago.

    When I purchased mine, 2013 or 2014, I was asked for measurements. Same story for when I ordered my jacket, all custom measurements to get the best fit. I was referencing the reason for the overall lower resale, rather than yours specifically. I apologize for lumping yours in.

    @beautiful_FrEaK touched on an important point that would influence lower resale of these. These are custom made to your measurements.

    Do we really want Roy and Kiya’s hands playing in our pockets...

    @longshanks my OG CPO hits me the same way. Front and back are long enough that it looks to need to be tucked in, yet the sides are too short to do so. Maybe we have a natural waistline that does not work with the MF CPO cut? I’m unfortunately facing the fact I probably won’t wear mine except how you do in the third picture, and that’s not my look. Might be selling time.

    Not to be morbid, but what happens if you, or he, is in an accident? Will his family know to refund you, your family to ask for a refund? Do you have it in writing? With wait times over a year, 100% payment upfront is not a realistic way of doing business. He is only one man, and the product was promised to made solely by him. At the current wait time, with taking more orders, and more “rush” orders, the variables trend to not receiving an order. Can you imagine how much space over two years of back stocked orders must take up? I’m sure he has the best of intentions, but there are many variables out of his control. Knowing that, taking more orders and more money is an irresponsible way of doing business. Listen to the podcast posted here, higher prices have not curbed demand. Every order digs a deeper hole. What happens if ten orders want a refund, $5000ish dollars, is he not spending your money until your order is satisfactorily fulfilled?

    Congrats. If it is from his Heritage line, he makes it, ready to wear is made out of house, if I correctly understood the interview posted by @mpukas

    Stuff you would like to see made

    I miss my teenage years when I could walk into the Van’s hut on Topanga Canyon Blvd and order any combo you could dream up. My wants would be Oni Awa Shoai, and Studio d’Artisan x’s-31.

    The product truly is special. I would recommend it, but I would also recommend paying for the rush service.

    To be fair. I ordered from WH Ranch because the product is great, not because of customer service. if the jacket is as great as my jeans, I’ll be one smiling, well dressed mofo!

    We can all do the math. The monies collected up front were spent long ago. If new sales dry up, what is the motivation or ability to meet already paid for orders? Hell, the storage cost for two years worth of orders must be huge. Denim, thread buttons, etc... Moving it all from Colorado to Kansas must have also been expensive. The thing that gets me, is that after I placed my jacket order, he advertised two of the exact same jackets on IG for instant sale, and at lower prices than what I paid, with very similar measurements to my order. Why not offer to a customer that has already paid? Unless you need the cash...
