Received the APC x Louis W bomber today. I've never owned a piece of clothing which retails for $2k before, but this is one serious jacket. At ~$700 one sale, I'm really happy I bought it. I'll have to get some better fit pics, but for now.. I bought the size M and am very glad I did. The size is spot on. The jacket is quite heavy and lined. It doesn't feel particularly padded at all.
There's quite a bit of a size difference IMO from the 42 down to a 40. The shoulders in particular. 42 was absolutely massive on me, not just in the sleeves. 40 is perfect but very slim in the shoulders.
Thanks for the info DLester!
I'm hoping the padding isn't substantial and that I sized right in the M. I think the L would have been too long in the sleeves and I don't want to be modifying this jacket. Totokaelo is supposedly wearing the M and it looks to be a regular fit. He's quite a bit taller than me and not exactly skinny.
I tried on a suede bomber a few months back and really fell for the look.
Very cool jacket - though I very much doubt i'd be able to pull it off. Downloaded Camera+ to get a timer on my phone. Had some trouble with the lighting, clearly. This height seems to get proportions more on point however. Not simple balancing the phone on the back of a lounge though. Wings+HornsAcneKsubiGrenson
