Some new colors of the lambswool are in stock, and we've restocked a few others. I think these would make great holiday gifts.

V-Necks

Nice!

Crewnecks look great. Size small sold out quick! Damn...
post #1774 of 4520
We will be doing one more restock before the end of the year, so if there's a sweater you want that's sold out, let me know.

Awesome. Sent you a PM.

Can anyone compare the VBC Super 100s flannel and the "classic" flannel for me? Is the former just a bit softer?
post #1777 of 4520

Softer and lighter in weight.  The latter is more heavy and hard-working.  See the weights on the site

Thanks.

Yes, I saw the weights; was more meaning beyond that, since the difference is only two ounces.

I have the former in mid gray, and was considering picking up another pair in charcoal, but my size is gone. Was just trying to figure out if I should go with the classic.

The listed measurement on the Chinese-made jackets are a full inch shorter (at least in my size), which makes them too short for me unfortunately.

The VBC S100s is indeed 15% lighter, but you wouldn't notice it, and I think it wears just as warm if not warmer. It is a very soft, very luxurious (but still sturdy) cloth. It is probably my favorite of all the cloth we offer. The classic is a little rougher, and very hardy. I have a pair that is now three years old, has gone around the world with me and been seriously abused and looks brand new.

The classic in light gray is great, if that's available in your size. A very versatile color.

Yeah, my post is from before I confirmed all the measurements. Sorry it won't work for you.

OK, that's helpful; thanks.

This actually raises another issue.

I got the VBC S100s in mid gray, and at first thought there must have been a mistake, as they appear lighter to me IRL than the pics seem to suggest.

But I actually think it's just something about the fabric itself that accounts for the discrepancy; just doesn't translate well to photos. I really like them, though, and I got unsolicited positive comments from a couple of people (including my wife) when wearing them for the first time yesterday.

Upshot is I wonder: is the light gray classic really that much lighter IRL (to justify another pair; basically am looking for a good flannel complement to the S100s mid-gray)?

No problem. I mainly wanted to register this for future reference. :-)

The photographs on the site are frequently a little lighter or darker than in person.  You can be sure that the VBC 100s light gray and the classic light gray are different.  Without seeing them all back to back in person you won't know just how different, but I can vouchsafe that all of the grays seen on the site are slightly different from one another.  I own many.  Interestingly, the light gray classic actually looks very true to life in the color seen in the photos.  Does that help?  I agree that the classic is versatile - nice sweet spot.  It's more of an elephant gray.  Not a darker mid gray, but not as light as the VBC light grays.

I tend to use general labels like "light" and "mid" within a range of what we're making in that specific cloth. Different cloth will dye differently, and look different in the light. I know it's not the most helpful when you're comparing across items. We have been improving our photo process for consistency, so that will help a little more. I guess I could come up with a shade scale or something, with the VBC cream gray a 1 and the charcoals a 10. Something to think about.

pics definitely require calibration to know what to expect; "light grey" in one pant may be the same as "mid grey" in another pant irl. buy a bunch of hoyo stuff so you know how to adjust for the very consistent slight overexposures in the web photos and, when needed, make use of jamison's very, very generous return policy.

there is a reason that i own more pants from howard yount than anyother maker. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm asking about the IRL difference between the classic "light gray" and the VBC 100s "mid gray."
