  1. There's no such thing as too many jeans (says the guy with 13-14 pairs)
  2. @kiya is the IH 633S OD something that you'll always have in production? Or is this one of those ultra limited releases that will never be reproduced?
  3. I think with social media and the like denim hipsters have become as pervasive as ever. I think some don't care while others go to great lengths to show people that they're cool. I know a lot of us buy into certain brands because we appreciate quality, but if you're posting selfies on IG everyday then you do care what others think. It's a mixed bag.
  4. My thoughts too. Besides, most people would simply follow the size charts. The model's size and fit of the clothes become irrelevant at this point.
  5. Bummer. Surprised to hear a denim specialist messed up your jeans. Hope your diemma gets worked out
  6. Did you have your jeans taken in by a denim specialist or a tailor?
  7. my response is late too but i'd second the IH N1 because of the alpaca lining. I'm planning on springing for the N1 deck vest sometime soon....it's a beaut.
  8. yep. This coming from someone that runs a denim company, which is truly horrifying. He's clearly talking out of his ass. I had to re-read what he said about not washing for 2 yrs. wtf? If you want to look and smell like a homeless man, or if you want to achieve epic fades then by all means, don't wash your jeans for 2 yrs. But for the rest of us on planet Earth, denim isn't endowed with some mystical properties that makes them immune to daily wear and tear.
  9. reminds me of the shirts Kramer wore on Seinfeld. I'd prefer not being labeled as a hipster doofus
  10. do a google search for the jade selvedge that came out a couple years ago -- they're essentially the same as the rusted blue selvedge.
  11. what one chooses to do with their jacket is their choice. I personally wouldn't ruin an expensive denim jacket with a patch, but that's me. I think, too, that the type of patch factors into it as well. lapel pins i'm ok with.
  12. I'm sure the construction/materials, like denim, makes them worth more. But the whole value thing is subjective. I wouldn't spend $300 for chinos but might drop $200 for a pair.
  13. those are hideous
  14. for me it depends on the article of clothing and how it fits into my wardrobe. I'm not particularly interested in adding more denim to my rotation, so ltd edition jeans do nothing for me. however, I have been slowly adding more shirts to my collection and i've been quite impressed with the flannels that IH have been putting out. I won't jump at every flannel they release, mainly because I simply don't have that kinda spare change lying around, but it sounds like the fabrics they use are woven by a small mill and therefore have limited runs. I don't think IH hypes their stuff, because not everything they do is a winner, but sometimes they get a really nice and unique looking fabric and it's a work of art, so in that regard I it's the customers who hype the brand because everyone wants their latest and greatest shirt.
