    I have a lighting kit I barely know how to use, so the sun's my go-to

    @Flash curious how you're lighting the photos? I'm certainly not a pro, but it looks like the light is dropping off towards the back of the photos. Adding some kind of white poster or foam board opposite your light source may help brighten up some of those spots. This guide has some helpful images on that kind of setup.

    @Smallrod, here are a couple of post-wash pics. The fabric lost some of its sheen and looks a bit more blue to the eye. Looking forward to seeing how it ages.

    Sure. I'll put some up in the next couple days. I was pleasantly surprised by how light the fabric is. Definitely crisp and sturdy, but not so heavy as to feel like a jacket. It feels somewhere in between a very crisp chambray and a canvas fabric. MF has it clocking in around 8oz in their specs.

    I finally got around to giving the Appaloosa a cold wash and took some measurements before and after. Just some slight shrinkage in the shoulder and chest, which is consistent with MF's size chart in other lots and sizes. Lot D - Large Before wash: Shoulder: 44.2cm || 17.4” Chest: 55cm || 21.65” Length (from shoulder): 71.1cm || 27.99” Sleeve: 62cm || 24.41” After wash: Shoulder: 43.5cm || 17.13” Chest: 53cm || 20.87” Length (from shoulder): 71.1cm || 27.99” Sleeve: 62.3cm || 24.53”

    Got my Lot D Appaloosa in the mail and had some fun with my camera and extension tube The fabric is quite smooth, with some irregularities here and there. I particularly like the purplish shade of the denim and the painted snaps. Thank you, @JDelage, for suggesting the shirt. Going to give it a soak and spin dry, as per MF's suggestion.
  7. And now I've got a Lot D Appaloosa on order. Almost wish you hadn't remembered!
  8. Thanks, @JDelage. I'm not too fussy on details, but am realizing I have a slight preference for non-Longhorn varieties like the SDA you linked. Curious, did you size for your TFH Longhorn differently than your typical shirts? It seems like denim westerns are cut and worn trimmer in the chest.
  9. Anyone have a denim western shirt they recommend? I've been looking at the usual suspects like TFH, Real McCoy's, TCB, etc. The Warehouse Longhorn seems nice but likely much too long for me, even after shrinkage.

    @srudy Do you have measurements? I might be interested.

    They're PF Flyers Grounder Hi. Unfortunately discontinued, I believe. The ribbing on the toe cap does look very similar to Pras sneakers.

    200 wears in. I've switched to washing them every month or so since my last update. Have a bit of love–hate relationship with the rise on these!
  14. Do you guys line up the front and rear of the waist band when measuring the waist on jeans? I've seen retailer measuring guides that do and some that don't. Never quite understood if there was a reason for lining up vs. not.

    Runabout Goods

    Really dig the jacket, especially the collar and the pockets. Is the fabric the same duck canvas as the Starborn jacket? I didn't know Runabout Goods did custom orders, so I'm curious how that process went.
