Lost my levis filson oil finish trucker in Paris, and I really wanted to buy another one. Turns out filson is canceling all its collaborations to focus more on their own lines. If anyone has this jacket in a medium or can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated Thanks

care to explain what makes it look tight on me? I think the nature and stiffness of the oil finish makes the fabric fold and pull in ways softer fabrics wont. (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the jacket looks better crinkled up in the arms and some areas.) sleeves look long but hang perfect when I hold them up as if holding a steering wheel which makes me feel it is designed and fits as intended, like a trucker should In the buttoned up pics I'm wearing 2 layers (T...
Maybe a bit in the chest with a thick layer. I also have only at max buttoned the 3 center ones. fit pics because probably like you, I was looking all over the internet for pics of this jacket on ACTUAL people. apologies for dirty mirror/shitty iPhone pics.

i wouldn't mind possibly resoling my DBs with leather.

i dunno it did have a nice waxy feel to em...I just liked that the mink oil made it a bit richer looking..
bought a pair of size 8 beeswax DBs last week applied 2 coatings of mink oil and a spray of waterproof protection. Pics of me wearing them on day 1 Pics of them a week later. I've purposely have not been gentle with them. I complained about pinching around the arch toe area and it's stretched a bit and hasnt bothered me much the past few days. I expect more stretching as time goes on, I really hope they end up looking like these: saw someone on the...
