Update: XL and XXL Heracles shirts are now done and will be arriving at John's office in Sendai this weekend!

In addition, the long-sleeve henley sample is coming soon after.
 
I've also got a new blog post up, though I warn you the pool goes into the philosophical deep end:

Judging by the diagram I've reached the early stage of the challenges and temptations; the mirage of Darth Vader awaits in the cave. :P

really diggin this shirt but not sure on sizing. I’m 5’11” around 200lbs athleticish build. i usually run into issues in the arms and have to size up because of that. How are the arms on these?

I have big arms and it suits me fine, it's the only chambray I have which actually has the correct sleeve length. I can rlcuff the the sleeves twice comfortably, a triple roll it's possible but becomes tight. Hope it helps.

I'll try and post a few pics once I've washed the shirt over the weekend. It's a great shirt, very happy with it.

Hmm might be worth me trying. Love my buzz rickson chambray but I can only wear it with the sleeves rolled up otherwise there's abut three inches of forearm showing.

You won't regret it. Sleeves are indeed quite a bit longer than those of the Buzz Rickson chambray.

Apparently sleeves of the buzz are done that way on purpose, the reproduce the original cutting of usn chambrays. Same here I can only wear it with rolled sleeves. Not a big deal as I wear shirts with rolled sleeves 90% of the time though..

Pulled the trigger on a Medium. I measured my two current denim shirts and as long as the posted measurements are accurate it should fit.

The Harvester ecru long-sleeve henley first sample has arrived B) The only thing we'll change with the final version is the tag, for something special. Otherwise, John Lofgren knocked it out of the park again and I'll have the finished versions of these, sizes S-XXL, in December. I've got a new blog post up about it and pre-orders are open too:

Like the look of the henley, especially the buttons.
Looking forward to seeing what the final label looks like too.

Nice Henley. Shouldn't expect any noticeable shrinkage with a cold wash and line dry, right?

They're one-wash so I'm not expecting any (same as the Heracles), but I'll give the henley a cold wash and line dry tomorrow and report how it does. B)

OK, I washed it cold and then warm and hang dried, as well as hitting it with a space heater dryer and I got essentially no shrink out of the henley. :)

Would have jumped on the short sleeve (yep, Australia). Sizing doesn't really suit me. The XL would fit my shoulders and chest, but the straight shape of the body would be too billowy for tucking in. I guess this one is meant to be worn untucked, which isn't really my style.

I laughed at the sweat-smelling throwing out part of the original blog post.

FYI there are several things you can do to remove sweat smells from garments. I've found that the sweat smell staying in the garment usually happens when you use an antiperspirant deodorant which leaves residue in the fabric that traps bacteria causing it to smell. When you wash a garment that has bad sweat stains you really should let it soak in detergent for 24 hours. Liquid detergent is better, and if your local water is hard, you might need some washing soda (sodium carbonate) and/or borax to soften the water up, which will allow the detergent to work.

And yeah you can use things like mouthwash, dishwashing liquid, white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and/or baking soda to treat sweat stains (depending on how/whether or not the garment is dyed)

Sensuki, yes it's meant to be worn untucked as a standalone shirt, or can be tucked as an undershirt. 

Yes, the sweat shirt...that thing was the Beast. I wish I could get it back to try these methods and save it, but alas I relegated it to the trash heap of history. :blush:

My next planned product is to make short-sleeved henleys, perhaps in both ecru and indigo-dyed, if the fabric orders are reasonable. B) I was thinking a pocket T, but I've personally been leaning more towards henleys these days.

Yeah I wear 60% s/s henleys and 40% plain tees I'd say, would the short sleeve one have a taper to the hem? ;)

Hey Sensuki, not sure about a taper to the hem; I think perhaps it would be worth trying to see if the shirt tucks in without looking too big though. :)

Yeah I just measured a Loop & Weft and Jelado that I have with side seams. Both are 102cm at the chest. Oddly the hem is bigger on both with the Loop & Weft is 105 at the hem (baggy), the Jelado is 103 (decent fit).

If your large had a slightly wider shoulder, that would be the best fit on me.

An update on the wabash and hickory stripe scarves: I've lowered the price from $85 to $65.

The reason being, the factory screwed up and misunderstood our directions, and accidentally cut off the selvedge line on the wabash scarves. This is the first time something this egregious has happened to John Lofgren. I've decided to go ahead with these, because otherwise they would be a waste, and because to remake them would mean waiting until Jan. 2018 as we bought up the last of this fabric, so the mill would have to make more and then it would have to go into the queue with sewing.

If you're looking for a stocking stuffer for Christmas ^_^ :

Your product description doesn't mention whether the scarf is wool, cotton, or something else.

Got this two great stuff together and i got very pleased with the fit as i always had a problem with finding the right shirt as the width of my shoulder make it very difficult to find the right one, big ups for bryan for helping with the sizing.

Details on both of them are crazy (fit pic follow soon)

Nice pick ups! 

I've been wearing the Henley quite a bit recently, very versatile and fits great for broader guys too.
