@proteinnerd recommended something similar to you. He told me via PM to perhaps not even adjust sleeve length at all due to the bunching up with wear. Maybe I'll go with 0.5". But what about the body? Is a taper needed or no?
I've already mailed back the jacket because I don't have any time in the next work week to stop by USPS/UPS/Fedex. Anyway, the length with the sleeves zipped up is the same. Carrie told me to add back 0.5" from whatever length I decide. I think the stock fit was pretty good as it is, but maybe could be improved for me just a little. I haven't submitted my final specs but I will in the next couple of days.
Hey guys can you please advise on fit adjustments? I received a fit jacket from Thurston.
The current sleeve is 25.5" and the current length is 25.5". I'm thinking 1.5" shorter sleeves and 1" shorter in the body. When I view the side pics the look is a bit fuller than I'd like so would a taper from the armpit down to the bottom of the jacket 0.5" on each side work? 3 pics unzipped, and 3 pics zipped:
If the material is similar to the rigid selvedge chino twill, then no they won't fade like jeans do. They will lighten overall in color with washing. I posted some pics a month or so ago. There are other pics in the Blake thread. For my pair they also ended up getting way more wrinkly after the first wash.
Moon is a Korean surname. Perhaps the actual jacket makers are sending the product through an agreement with Drew. I'm not saying this is the case since I don't know, but the wtf comment is not necessary. Just as Johnson Leather might send out a jacket, Moon Leather could also send out a jacket.
I'm brand new to Viberg. I normally purchase CM-approved footwear (Vass, Carmina, C&J, etc), but I'm thinking about picking up a rougher, streetwear type of boot like some Viberg Waxed Flesh or Wolverine 1000 miles. Too bad I didn't get in on the waxed flesh boot in the current SF/Viberg run, but I don't know enough about the brand to drop $700+ on a pair of shoes. So here I am doing research.
Why are Vibergs so much more expensive than Wolverines? I know there is...
