I bought a pair of these slate grey Outlier shorts last summer and the Schoeller fabric they use would be pretttty sick on a flight jacket (it's got kind of a matte finish). I know the menu's already pretty deep so I'm just shooting the breeze here.

Also, nicelynice's MMM flight jacket in the recent purchases thread got me thinking

I don't know if it's my place to comment, but you're not going to convert SZ with persistence or with volume. If you can predict exactly the response you're going to get, why bait it?

I think their WAYWT thread is an abomination except for a few individuals (mostly female, ironically), but ultimately it's more about conforming to an aesthetic rather than experimenting with it. Their fetish for monochrome artisan clothing isn't going to give ground for a ToJ piece that's more punk than vintage or americana, and while they don't overlap on mindshare at all with the latter two they actively despise the former. Faust & co. don't care about fishtail parkas or even the standard MDR, but they will cheerfully shit over ToJ if their gateway to it is your rider. Which is kind of unfair if it's a one-off.

Now I want to browse their WAYWT. But what is SZ?

Well, whatever. I'm not here to cause shit on any level, I have an extreme gratitude to Drew (not just for making this jacket, though that's a big part of it), so I just want to leave it alone. I just wanted to make it clear that the reception of that jacket has been really positive. Drew is right that I should just leave SZ alone -- but I'm naive, not a troll.

Is there any way to get measured for one of these?

i don't have any good input on the new varsity, but can kelly green wool with white (or cream) sleeves be an option?

How about a extra minimalist+light weight varsity with Brushed Cotton/Lightweight Suede body + Linen sleeve? I don't think there is one in the market yet. I would wear it everyday in summer
