Thanks Duke, that's why I'm trying to sell off a lot of the other shirts in my closet right now. ^_^

They'll really come to life in a couple more months! Nice progress.

pfff... is that all?

:wink:...unless this is Part 1(a) of the flannel archive, in which case I apologise for the interruption

:sad: yeah, that’s all I have ... a trifling 8 flannels - about 6.5% of the shirt collection

I like that red, white (cream), and blue strippy flannel the best, although the Jesse in red is lovely too!

Meh.. could do that myself. I would defo buy the full tux if they could squeeze out some special arcs, like the ones you got.

I’d like the new type 1 not sure if I can swing it but it’s nice

That’s what thought was so ridiculous Doc - ‘desolation row special’ to me implies something more special than hammering down a rivet or two. Anyway if you bought the tux or even just the 22s from the right guy you could choose the arc you wanted ... literally any you had an image of

My experience with the FW 601XX (which is limited to a single example) is that one has to hammer in the exposed rivets anyways. They're much sharper than on any other brand I've been exposed to.

Yes the rivets scratch the shit out of my hands. 
I’m tempted to hammer them down

@shredwin_206 Get some fine sandpaper and round them down! That's what I dislike about FW denim too.

As promised @Dr_Heech - plus a comparison to the Bootleggers arc ... not much wear, just a wee bit of bleed and rub from my wallet in the left hand pocket

The Bootleggers have been soaked, then washed and that’s the shrinkage out of them

Is there a difference between those 2 editions of the indigo Bake Head Overalls? I'm trying to understand the price difference. It could just be a price update I suppose...

Anyone picking up the Timber Beast? (Looking at you Duke :ph34r:).
Looks like it's making its way out to retailers, I can't really justify another jacket right now since our weather is on the verge of turning, but I really like the look of it.
Some great photos from McFly here: https://mcfly-store.com/products/freewheelers-timber-beast-coat-2121003-yarn-dyed-yellow-brown

I like the coat @Broark but I have the Burnham in yellow-brown duck and although the styling is a little different it’s essentially the same kind of coat.

Had to look that one up, the Burnham looks nice and like you said essentially the same jacket sans the hood.
I'm mulling it over a bit, but currently the logical side of me says pass until I free up some more closet space.

DR changed it. It must have been a mistake.
