  1. i’ve seen the Rollins Band several times as well as seeing Henry’s spoken word shows years ago. But, I have to be honest, Henry is a dreadful singer and this song is cringe. Now, get off my lawn lol
  2. I’m American but don’t consider myself fat. I do have bitch tits though lol
  3. I would argue that most blue collar workers aren’t dropping $300+ on a tin cloth Filson jacket or whatever. Filson has basically become a fashion brand. I have some of their MiUSA pieces but beyond that I won’t buy anymore of their stuff. I don’t wear Carhartt so can’t speak to their quality. I’m sure their prices are what appeals to blue collar workers and not the quality
  4. I would’ve considered Filson a decent brand when most of their stuff was MiUSA, but nowadays they’ve shifted production overseas and are still charging ridiculous prices. And I think their fits are among the worst in the clothing industry....made for fat people
  5. https://www.filson.com/outerwear/jackets-coats/tacoma-work-jacket.html#sku=20096828-fco-000000111 Not sure I’d recommend this one though as their fits are horrible, unless you have the physique of Danny DeVito. I used to own the Tacoma and sold it immediately. Only reason I’m posting a link is because the style is similar

    I’ve decided to retire my chromexcel wallet because it had stretched to the point that my drivers license slipped out and got lost. It was a Mitchell’s leather front pocket wallet that I’ve been using for at least 7-8 yrs. Nice wallet but super irritating because over time it will stretch and your cards won’t be secure. At least I didn’t lose my credit cards

    I like 3sixteen knits. Did they discontinue their indigo henleys?

    Are there any denim brands you guys dislike, for whatever reason? Could be aesthetics, business model, etc. Not asking so we can collectively bash anyone in particular.
  10. Isn’t that a good thing? My current issue is my jeans are going through a crotch blowout and my assumption is that the thicker the darning the longer they’ll last
  11. Is Nine Lives still around or did they go out of business? I don’t own any of their clothes but like their aesthetic
  12. Is Indigo Proof considered the gold standard for denim repair? My jeans are slowly disintegrating and I’m in need of a crotch repair and pocket replacement.

    I look at it this way, if IH hadn’t expanded to western markets it’s likely IHJP would’ve folded, especially when Covid hit. The price increases have been incremental with certain styles and not so much with others from what I can see. Personally, I’ve scaled back my purchases with IH because of the increases. I might typically buy a couple of items from the Fall drop and maybe one item from Spring, but I only bought one UHF from Fall ‘21 and I’m not buying anything from the current Spring drop. In Fall ‘21 I ended buying 2 UES flannels instead because they’re way more affordable and I like some of their flannel colorways. So it was basically a two for one type purchase. I’ll still buy IH just not as much as I use to. The irony is that I don’t need anymore UHF’s from IH, but they’re so well made and warm af that I can’t help it. UES is now my back up go to for flannels provided they have colorways I like.

    I still like IH fwiw. And to their credit, they’ve brought bigger sizes and cuts for us fat westerners to enjoy. Yes, the forum has its extreme fanboys but at the end of the day they’re just very enthusiastic about their clothes. Nothing wrong with that. Do I like everything they release? Of course not. But as a brand they’re more accessible and open to suggestions than most. I have quite a few UHF’s and about 6 of their jackets. I love them all. My only gripe is the price going up pretty consistently. I get that operating costs have gone up as well as the cost of materials but pretty soon it’ll only exist as a brand for the rich. I will echo the complaint about PBJ. Horrible cuts. I’ve wanted to try their jeans forever but I can never find anything suitable. Either the hems are too skinny or too wide. Or if the hem looks ok the thighs and waist is too small. Their jackets fit like crap too and I’m not crazy about their sewing standards either. The armholes on my type II are a mess compared to my IH jackets which are cleanly sewn.

    I quite like UES flannels. They fit me well. No experience with their other stuff but will definitely still buy their shirts
