Is the Indigo Chambray Workshirt the same season-to-season? The stock photo looks the same as that on retailers' sites (like END's), but the lighting in the photos with the model seems to show more fading/tint on the shoulders and chest, and it's hard to tell if there's stitching around the elbows like the shirt on END.

Very much. In fact, I replaced one I’d bought 7 or 8 years ago (accidentally left behind on vacation last year and only noticed months later lol) last year and almost couldn’t tell the difference. I’d say they are pretty consistent, and any differences in photos is likely lighting, exposure etc

Bit annoyed at the standard inseam being "32. I am 5'10", which is +/- average height in most Western countries & above average elsewhere, but "32 inseam is sometimes a bit too long, while "30 is sometimes a bit too short. "31 would probably be perfect for me – if it existed. I always find myself trying "30 & "32 until I find the best fit, which can be frustrating with returns etc. (dealing with that now...).

You just have to accept the hem.

32 inseam is fine for me (6') with selvedge denim since I always cuff it a bit.
I ended up with some 34 inseam jeans so I was marking them yesterday to send off to get chain stitch hem along with another 34 inseam pair I've had for a while. One measured 33 and the other was over 35.

🤷‍♂️

What you're both saying is obvious – and I have done that in the past, but stopped at some point. I now realize I missed out on several jeans because I refused to adapt... At least my low effort post/complaining lead to this realization.

PS: small sale @ cultizm where you can get up to 25% depending on how much you spend, valid on new items as well.
