Like Volvo said, both pockets will be the same.

Pockets will be mismatched and no one knows what will get!

Wait? I thought that would be too much hassle?! 

OK, the better! :D

I think he was saying he wanted the same mismatched pockets as me -- though I do understand being able to feel the weight difference in the fabrics... as long as I don't get one flannel, its ok.

Flannel isn’t an option so you don’t have anything to worry about.

User name notwithstanding, as long as I get one left and one right, I’m good.

What’s wrong with flannel?

I believe flannel pockets in summer isn't the most comfortable experience

I think I would blow through flannel pockets more quickly -- not sure if I would or not... just a feeling that the other fabrics are more durable

I could care less as long as they’re durable. 
I had some pocket bags on a pair of MF that were extremely lightweight and fell apart in a few months. 
I wish more companies focused on durable pocket bags and decent pocket size. 
no tiny pockets.

As mentioned several pages back, flannels are bulky & hot for summer, which TG was not included .... ‘Double down on sturdier & more functional pocket bags. We should be ‘aight.

Fingers, toes and nads crossed for at least one herringbone pocket here.

Looks like tiger camo was included after all?

NO! These are 40s jeans not 60s ones. I don't want my left testicle to be dressed like someone playing CoD.

oh God...
I guess Ryo took the initiative and added one extra fabric. Please accept that it's impossible for me to have total control of their production. They added camo thinking of doing something cool.
Lottery is a lottery, I hope you all will be happy with the end results.

maybe they ran out of fabric?

fwiw wabash isn't exactly 40s specific either...

but yes: testicular CoD cosplay is a metaphor that will stay with me...

indeed but that was displayed before. I am getting Paul's point but I hope we just don't go too anal on this.

Not too concerned with the historical accuracy aspect, I think for me at least the idea was random pocket bags to replicate war era production.
Just make pocket bags of whatever you have on hand.

I think it's a bit loud as a fabric, but I am a player and I like to play this russian roulette till the end.
If I finish with the camo, my left testicle will just play Cod, fuck it!

For reference: random is random and I will live with whatever I get. Just putting my opinion out there, my testicles should be fine.

Sorry Volvo, I wasn't moaning - just arguing!

I have a neighbour who has a fucking Waffen SS pattern winter jacket, just don't swap it for that even if it is contemporaneous.
But I can't call him on it, can I, because even recognising the pattern incriminates me.

... said this elsewhere, I do like a bit of flecktarn in the summer, but that is a different historical beast to the above ...

off topic, but within camo talk ... found this in the vintage showroom book: 1940s british desert pink camo ... that is something I could roll with ...

That is nice (the second not the first). I'm a big fan of the slightly surreal early camos, especially the dazzle and disruptive ones with the more primary colours.

Ahem, I read a book on the history of camouflage, and in the early days the War Office or whoever it was went right out an hired a bunch of groovy Vorticist and other state of the art painters. I have a feeling the crazy WW1 german lozenge pattern was also designed by some artist who convinced the right bureaucrat.

If there's one place where camo would not bother me, it is indeed on pocket bags...

Tiger camo ?  Isn’t that 13.5oz ?! 
All in on the lottery, of course ...

 :rolleyes: ‘Just saying,  10.5oz HRB X 13.5oz TC =214AC437-5B40-4B71-9C79-916D1C9ECDCC.gif.f8fd819586e535683ebe62262af3a15a.gif
