Maybe you owe yourself a first hand look? I know the reports have been spotty but my stratton from last season is exceptional in its leather and I'm super happy with it.Well except i got an xl and am now wishing i sized up. Anyway I'm constantly surprised at my impressions of pieces and the wide swing from photos online to the real thing. Im constantly surprised. Love it online then don't in person and eh online to wow in person. Sucks when you don't live close to a store....
Ive got the type II. I go between an xl and xxl and had to go xxl here. So don't size down whatever you do. Mines breaking in nicely. I wanted the roper but they sold out of it. Was cardboard stiff and did a couple soaks. Still has some stiffness but is comfortable.
Has anyone picked up the nautilus coat? Is it just a lightweight pea coat or is there more to it? The warmer weather has me wondering. Ive only seen the photos on the RL site and a couple other retailer but not a "real life" wearing shot. The loftman shots were more a tease than a good look at it.
I ordered the Campbell in an xxl. It was pretty big and I determined I should size down one. And although I liked it, for some reason I saw it as a jacket but its was a coat. Heavier and not really an indoor thing. So i decided to return it.
Not a great photo I know but got the Thompson Chinos today. Looks to be a nice pairing with the empire. I like the heft of these and the fit pretty much. Also picked up the Bloomington Carpenters. They were less blue than appeared online. Still nice. A lighter weight than the Thompsons. Buckle backs, not form fitting in the seat. Probably keep them. Will try with the Allen and maybe the Empire as well. Anyone else come up with a nice pair for them?
cool thanks for the photo, curiously they don't show the back online, i was just wondering. leather appeared thick and nice. what your impression?
yes good point
I have to agree. Based on site photos i took a pass, this looks much better to me. Mmm Jacket...
What? no jackets? Thats my downfall. Jackets, coats, vests, pants, shirts, ties, hankies, god and country.
Would love an xxl roper!
