LOL! Now it sounds exactly like the same shit I heard 30 years ago. SSDD.

Codgers like you and I need to go the way of the dinosaur to make room for the PROC youth brigade.

I'm new to styleforum (but I've lurked for a little while), but I just thought I'd mention that I received a SM trucker jacket today and I was pretty disappointed with the sizing. I'm pretty small (5'5 135lbs) and I spend a lot of time shopping around for things that actually fit. I guess it's kind of flattering to size up in this case to a Med, but I wish a SM actually meant a SM and so on...Anyone interested in the SM?

..and damn, this thing is stiff.

This is genuine workwear. It is very abrasion and tear-resistant. Just what you need on the job.

The down side? The oiled canvas is even stiffer than un-oiled canvas, which itself is pretty stiff.

The question is- does anyone want to wear something so constricting if you don't need the near-indestructability that it affords?

Not me.

That would be cool.. I am thinking of doing the same thing. XL in this "vintage 67 fit" is just too snug for me. I have the overdye black trucker jacket in XL (same '67 cut).. but wish it was 2XL. It fits, but the minute i put my hand up on the steering wheel to drive.. it becomes damn tight, and makes me crazy. I really like the jacket you ordered. I see they have a "dry" version of it too.. Any particular reason you went with the oiled version vs. the dry version?

wasnt happy with the sizing so i'm just copping a normal filson tin jacket, since i need extra long. :[

If anyone has an XL trucker they're looking to sell, I'd be interested. Especially if you're local to NYC.

I bought a Filson oil finish tin cruiser a while back because I am a huge fan of the wool ones (I have 2!)

I ended up being unhappy with the oiled tin cloth because it stinks! it literally smells like shit when you wear it. I can't wear it anymore. people walked into the room and said "EEEEW! something stinks in here!"
it sucks because I love everyone else about the jacket. they did just come out with a dry finish version which I will probably grab at some point.

This isn't filson related so make a "Made in China" thread if you want to debate it.
cherry-picking negative examples doesn't prove shit, lots of garbage is made everywhere where anything is manufactured. i have a coat that was made in canada and shirts that were made in the US that are way worse quality than some of my made in china items. you're correct in stating that manufacturing in china is directly related to saving costs, but that doesn't mean everything that comes out of there is low quality; in fact, many companies use chinese manufacturing to deliver a higher quality product for mid-to-low quality costs.

No way I'll ever fit into this large. It's in B&S if anyone wants it

Finally got mine. I'm really happy with how it fits: Yes, it's pretty oily from the start although I'm sure it will rub off with some wear. Looking forward to beating the crap out of this thing.

Stopped into the mall Levi's store today. They got in the Filson collab trucker jacket. I don't think there was any wax on it but it had the same wax color except broken in. Several "marks" on the surface (I think this is their version of distressed) but it wasn't too horrible. Definitely fits on the smaller side. The L was about to bust at the shoulder seam and the sleeves were a good 6" up past my wrists. Normally I can at least put the L trucker jackets on. No XL's in stock.
