Yea I know someone who is waiting over 5 years. They’ve given up at this point and just calling it a loss.

There should be a subreddit section made dedicated to those who have waited 2 years or more for their jeans from WH.  That would be both interesting and depressing to read.

Sorry but that guy has no spine. What a joke, almost worst than Lawless.

He is worse than Lawless. At least People got refunds from Lawless but WH Ranch continues to fleece customers. The sad part is that customers continue to give him money and defend the guy. It’s quite the Ponzi scheme he’s got going on. Most companies would hire additional help if demand exceeds supply, but this guy keeps BSing everyone by saying he’s a one man brand. Nope. Ande Whall made denim himself and so does Eleven Wolves denim (among others). He’s got a huge set of balls to be posting on IG all the time.

And now he’s pimping new shirts or something, good luck getting those in the next 10 years. :rolleyes:

Who exactly is his market for there to be a demand of shirts made by him?  Japan?  Europe?  It definitely isn't America because I haven't seen any of his denim carried online besides his webstore.

I don’t know where the demand for his stuff comes from at all besides his own marketing on IG honestly.

Maybe he'll work with Black Bear Brand again on limited batches...Unless that "relationship" went sour too.

The black bear collab was interesting. When I asked about it. They said it’s a collab but still the standard order process through Ryan. 

I assumed they had the product in stock but that wasn’t the case. 

I’m not sure his target market. Used to be rancher and cowboy but now he’s making top gun jackets and an option for pre distressed denim. He calls it Couture western wear  

I really don’t know who buys his stuff to keep him in business. I only see one guy post his stuff lately and his bio says he is sponsored by WH Ranch. Maybe he just has tons of orders paid in full and backed up?

Evan at Hudson Hill is good friends with Ryan. They carried his RTW jeans. 

Shop Canoe Club carried his 1936 cut

Don’t think either carry his stuff now

Yeah, ever since I left Greensboro, moved to Charlotte, then Virginia, I have no idea if Hudson still carries WH as I haven't been there in over a year now..  I could of sworn Hudson's carried it on their site.  I miss Greensboro.

This sounds very shady so you may have dodged a bullet if you were on the fence on buying them.

First order - 6 months

Second order - 2 years, 9 months

If the wait time ever gets back to 6 months, I would order from WH Ranch again.

Yes I did. It turned out great. I like the fabric more than my Filson. It will get a lot of wear during the wet months.

The store carried work wasn't made by Ryan, it was outsourced to a facility in LA i believe. To my knowledge he never got round to doing more of the 'ready to wear' collection, but i'm guessing if he's doing offering shirts they'll be 'rtw'.

 When i ordered from him it was late 2014 i think, my order was a complete custom cut, and i think the wait was about 9mths. I didn't mind at the time, but 5yrs just sounds like he's forgotten or lost the order. I'm assuming these 5yr folk have been in touch and had responses?

5 year wait time to make the first ten shirts. -_-

So, really the price is anywhere from $410 to $440 if you consider a modest 2.2% interest rate over the 2-5 years you don't have either your cash or your shirt.

Also the huge, over exaggerated back yoke looks hilarious. Like something your dad would’ve worn in the 70’s!

He started advertising $400 shirts today, with a promise that a pre-order batch of 10 will be done by New Year's Day, 2020.

That's real classy, seeing how he has people out there waiting who paid over five years ago.

$395 for delivery by 1/31/3020.

If you like the shirt, with the guaranteed delivery date go for it. He is a craftsman, his craftsmanship on his heritage line is second-to-none.

I’m a critic of his previous wait times, not at all of the finished product. That said, I don’t own a cowboy hat, or boots, and from his beginnings that has been his target demographic.

A lot of us denim freaks are looking for exactly that, style and construction of our parents and grandparents.

Also, jeans at $375, and simple/classic denim shirts at $395 does not compute to me. If it was a "fancy" western shirt, it might make more sense.

While his wait times got horrendous, he did also win the DWC artisanal challenge. I feel this thread belongs here, praises and criticisms equally.
