Yeah, not sure if the pattern has changed but the most recent samples (blue/black denim, waxed grey and some other denim one) all looked to have really billowy sleeves. Thought it was the model but maybe the pattern was changed.
I actually like the scalloped shirt hems....there are tons of brands that offer more traditional hems out there. However, I agree that Gustin's straight leg model should have a little more taper. The current pattern is more of a slim straight, though, so I feel like the thigh (and possibly knee) would have to be brought out a hair to have more of a traditional tapered look.
Mike or Dylan - think it would ever be possible for MTO rivets to have an option for patch back pockets, if I want something a bit more casual? I may be an anomaly, but I really like that look when i've seen it elsewhere.
Anyone pre-ordering the elephant 5 denim jacket? ~$200 for a 20 oz, well fitting jacket in a decent looking denim is a pretty good deal IMO, even though I'm pretty over the type III model. I tried on another N&F jacket and do think they are one of the few brands that actually gets the sleeves right, largely due to their taper. Blousy sleeves don't work when raw IMO, and I don't feel like dealing with them for the months it would take to break them in. Just wish it came...
