Damn, looks like I stopped posting on the forum just before this shitshow took off. Sucks so many people are out money and jackets. I've seen this kind of thing on guitar forums as well. New luthiers pop up, get internet-popular overnight, take way more orders than they can handle, fall behind, and then just crash and burn. Or they can't manage a business and burn through all their capital too quick, and have to take new orders in order to finance finishing their first...
Welp, I got annoyed searching back years in this thread for sizing info, so I just ordered my normal size in the Black Raw New Standard. I wear 29's in Raw Indigo, so thats what I ordered in Raw Black.Bare in mind my Indigo NS are like 3 years old at this point, but the Black Raw NS in 29 appear to fit the same as the Indigo did when new - slim and kinda tight throughout my leg and seat, I can just barely get all the small buttons buttoned, but I can't quite get the top...
After doing some research that's what I'm thinking.Looks like I can order direct from APC webstore in France, so I may order 29's first and exchange for 30's if it doesn't work.I'll do a bit more searching in this thread first though.
Hey guys, long time no post. My New Standards are coming to the end of their life and I want to get going on a new pair, was planning on some Raw Black New Standards this time, some questions: -I've remember talk about the Black Raw fitting tighter, or not stretching as much as, Raw Indigo, anyone with experience of both know if this is true? I wear 29 in Raw Indigo and they fit perfect, would I run into issues buying a size 29?
Long time no see, internets Kind of wish I didn't lose my old camera.
I don't think the excess leather looks bad, looks more like a product of an un-broken-in jacket and an awkward pose. Doesn't appear to be an issue when you're standing upright. Will you often be zipping it all the way up to the neck?Personally I've never had an issue with a jacket/shirt with an extra inch or so in the chest, just makes it easier to move. Its when the chest gets too tight that things look silly. This jacket looks best when its a bit oversized anyway in...
So you plan to loose weight, and also put on muscle. So you will loose weight from your waist, chest and shoulders and then put on some weight in your chest and shoulders from lifting. Its pretty much impossible to know how much unless you previously lifted and took time off, and now you just want to get back there (still iffy logic though).I think the 48 will be too small, as its already looking too small in the shoulders, in my opinion. Especially since this jacket...
Washed and tumble dried my flannels, shrank in length just enough to look normal. Not sure how much, maybe an inch. The shoulders/upper back shrank a bit too which I was hoping to avoid. Not tight though, just a bit snug. That part will probably stretch out though.
This is the reason I got the mild-looking red one and the grey one. But jets pic kinda makes me wish I also grabbed the multicolor one.Cool, hopefully I won't have to hem them since I'm really lazy when it comes to sewing.
Just picked up a couple of the patchwork flannels. I really like the fabric, very soft. Fit TTS for me [[SPOILER]] My only issue with them its they're a bit long for me by maybe 2" in the body. Has anyone washed/dried them yet? Do they loose any length?I usually don't tumble-dry anything but underwear because it seems to change the feel of the fabric, but if it loses an inch from doing so, I'll probably do it.
