That's odd, since I have similar shoulder and chest measurements as you. The 2nd picture is the women's version in a Large.While the XL solved some of the length issues I have with the jacket, it was too big in the body. The L is already a little roomy in the body, but nothing too crazy.It adds to the roundness and poofy-ness of the jacket. The 1st jacket is a bit more comfortable though, since it's more snug and the fabric is thinner and lighter.I really don't understand...

I just checked it out in person on my lunch break, and it's definitely better than the men's version. The fabric reminds me of the thicker, dense nylon used on Alpha bombers. Even the ribbing on the women's version is thicker and more substantial. The women's version is cut rounder and more dimensional. For instance, the jacket sleeves are curved, just like traditional MA-1's. Even the navy and olive colors on the women's version are better. The navy is brighter and...
I saw the jacket online too. It looks great from the pictures. I usually prefer welt pockets on these jackets, but the flap pockets look pretty good. I wish the men's version had snaps as well. Curious, what's the difference in fabric between the men's and women's version?
Damn HBO is taking down streams... From the highlights, it looked like the guy was severely outclassed. It's clear Andre has some pop from his fights with Dawson and the Cuban guy. Could he have knocked the guy out if he really tried? More importantly, will Andre come into the Kovalev fight with his head shaved or rock the taper fade? I'm taking bets!
How did Ward look in his tune up fight? Did he show us anything that would change our predictions leading up to the Kovalev fight? Is he better or worse since growing his hair out?
Raf Simons dude,Maybe you can give me some insight, since you own a lot of Raf Simons clothes...Was Raf's fabrics and textile choices always trash? I've owned some early (2001) and later (2008) stuff from him and while they were interestingly constructed, I noticed that his choice of fabrics were poor.I've come to think that he selects his fabrics foremost for color and texture rather than comfort or quality. I don't really think he wears his clothes, because if he did,...
I haven't spent that much on repairing my favorite pair of $25 Uniqlo jeans, but at least twice over. Three of my jeans that I rotate are in need of repair again I'm guessing you get them patched with old pieces of denim at the tailor like I do?Anyone have experience having their jeans darned by guys like Self Edge? I always thought that $40 to get jeans repaired was too much, but it's worth it if it really lasts.Another topic...IMO, Raf has fallen off so much since his...
I ended up buying the bomber in navy. It fits me pretty well and has some nice details (shoulder darts for instance).It's slightly cropped and hits about 4 inches past my hip bone. Wearing a regular length t-shirt, I see about 1.5 inches of shirt wearing the jacket.The jacket has a light poly filling in the body and sleeves that gives it a little weight. It actually feels pretty cozy worn. I think it will be comfortable for the fall and early winter in NYC. I like that it...
So I'm interested in making some ties using Grenadine Grossa silk. I got a quote from both producers, and the Bianchi silk is a few dollars more per meter. There's also different minimum requirements from both producers, with Bianchi requiring a larger minimum. I was curious whether there are differences between the two producers, whether it's the weaves or something else? Does one producer specialize in making a better Grenadine Grossa than the other? Also, does...
