I can be talked into this. Might be game to try a heavier pair (17 or above). Might be intrigued by the right shirt too. I'm sure the details are TBD, but who would be manufacturing this?
We will let everyone know when we do. We might also ask for more opinions if we are stuck making a decision. We want members to be involved as much as possible. We are taking all suggestions into consideration as this is for the benefit of all forum members who participate. We do need to get the numbers up to make this work though.

it might be best to shop a few fabric options and toss those up for a vote...possibly listing varying price ranges for each (with a high/low qty) same could be done for patch design...similar to how a few collabs have been handled on various subreddits. allowing the community to be directly involved (as you mention above) is likely to garner more interest/support and then everyone knowing the fabric and patch going in are more likely to get committed orders rather than blind commitments.
THIS!!!!!! Please make something with extra long fiber cotton. If it's jeans please make them with hidden rivets and if it's shirts please use super heavy snaps like scovill military spec ones or something...

Be interested in some jeans if they're heavyweight as well (18oz + seems to be the going rate here); would really depend on the details though. Assuming the shirt is denim than it's not for me. A heavyweight chambray on the other hand though...
If we could do an indigo with a unique weft, like the brick color the titles show up as on the forum, I'd be a lot more interested. Bonus points if they crock enough to complete my couch's transformation from red to indigo. Reminds me, I need to swap sides with my wife, hers is still red.
How about a Raffle? Source some fabric and a Sewer for a couple pairs, then put them up as a raffle. That way more community members can get in on it for short money and get a MTO jeans (or a shirt). Have 3 pieces made with a $20-25 fee. Any extra goes to charity.
