UES Denim

I like both colors but I’m not digging the pockets for the bottom one. Much prefer the acorn pockets. I wonder why UES doesn’t use acorn pockets for the ultra heavy flannel?

I agree, I prefer the acorn pockets as well. But I like the color of the extra heavy one more.

The Broark we know would just get both(they are both pretty nice, hard to pick)

@goodrain that's a valid point, trying to be more economic though!

Just got this today. Wabash work shirt. Fits perfectly now, so I will not be throwing this in the dryer ever.

How warm would you say your heavy flannel is (the one w/acorn pockets)? 

Not really sure how to quantify this—it's cotton, so if you really need something warm it's def. not gonna be your best bet…but as far as cotton shirts go it does the job. Much warmer than TFH's flannels, a good bit less warm than IH's UHFs.

@julian-wolf

thanks. The close up pics gave me the impression that it’s a loose weave, unbrushed flannel, so didn’t look too warm. Thinking this would make a good warmer weather flannel

Has anyone tried the Purcara purcara sweat?

^ a previous partner had one of those & liked it lots—not as soft as some of the standard loopwheeled options, but warm and very sturdy

It’s worth noting that it’s cut sideways, so it may stretch & shrink differently than you’re used to

Good to know.  I am pretty much between this and something from Studio D'Artisan, as I already have several from RMC.

Thought about Deluxeware? Unless there’s something in particular drawing you towards this one, I’d def. take Deluxeware sweats over Ues

Honestly no.  Never really taken a look at deluxeware, but I''ll give it a look.  What is the quality compared to Warehouse?

I have 3 Deluxewear sweats (and another squirrelled away for the future). They are soft, sturdy, warm and very well made. I think they come up a little small. Never had Warehouse so can’t compare but the Deluxewear are better than Buzz Rickson imho. Personally, I’m happy with them so not interested in trying other brands.

At least WF’s prices aren’t that bad. $165 + shipping if direct from UES and $195 at WF. 

Shows 250$ for me but could be because I am not from the US :)

UES is just a really likeable brand

yeah, I like the brand too. Had my eye on them for a few years but never pulled the trigger. Really dig the UES aesthetic

Great fabrics, reliable sizing with sensible proportions, range of cuts in the jeans and generally nice people in store and online. What's not to love!

I might pull the trigger to try one of flannels out now that DC4 have them to try the sizing out. Might be a good alternative to IH being €60 cheaper, with better color combinations and design (the IH mob will now strike down hard on me, I know). :ph34r2:

The length is worrying me a bit though.

^ More like 3" more rise

Well, I can do just fine with 11" front and 15" back rise so 1"- 1.5" would be just fine for me :D

As with all things, that's subjective and purely a matter of taste. I quite like IH color combo's and design, but not all of them. Likewise, I like UES's color combo's as well but not all of them. UES did some patterns a few years back that I thought I thought were really cool though.

Ordered this UES Green Heavy Flannel today. Really excited, looks like a great fabric and should fit well. The two shades of green look great, and I like the contrast of the salmon-colored stripes.

I had one UES flannel about four years ago and it was a great looking shirt, but about a size too small. I got a 2/Medium, when I should've gotten a 3. Didn't help that this was back when I was trying to squeeze into the slimmest-fitting clothes I could manage.
