I've got the original messenger.
I'm wearing a pair right now!
I usually avoid straight fitting jeans because the cut is pretty boring. However, these are cut really nicely--not too straight and not too slim.
I like to wear them by cuffing them with one little roll. That way, they have a nice taper at the end.
They are true to size: a 32 actually measures a 32.
I'm 6'2" and the 32 x 32 cuts off perfectly (I'm also a 29" in APC Petite Standards and usually a 31" in Acne jeans--if that helps you get a sense of the sizing).
I got a chance to try this season's Broken Twill Prest and the fabric is so soft, almost like flannel.
Just received a Our Legacy six shirt that I ordered last week. I have previously read that they run a bit boxy but I wasnt so concerned since the shirt was on sale and I have pretty broad shoulders to begin with. I also dont like my shirts to be super narrow and fitted.
Tried it on a few minutes ago and its pretty baggy and a bit long even compared to Gitman which I dont consider a very slim fitting brand and I love.
Its not so huge that I could never wear it but its a bit big for me. Has anyone had any luck washing and drying(shrink a bit) any Our Legacy shirting? I normally wash my shirts and hang to dry but if I can get it to shrink just a bit that would be great or is it going to come out possibly damaged or misshaped? I could probably sell it on ebay and break even but the fabric feels really nice and the styling I like a lot.
Should have tried some on since there are a ton of stores that carry OL in my area but never got around to it.
fyi. fabric is cotton and linen
I have seen the 36(small) our legacy shirts at a store near me and they looked quite a bit smaller than the 38 so thought it would be too small. Do you wear the same size in OL as you do Gitman Vintage?
Next time I will buy from a retail store in my area so I can compare better
