I hope I don't get shot for asking this but is it possible to have the waist taken in on the trousers? I sized up two on mine, the fit is pretty sweet actually when they stay on my waist but it does look kinda sloppy when they start sliding down. Have the trousers been engineered in such a way where that's not possible with the elasticated waist?

Yeah, like Synthese, I'm going to have to disagree also. Though, I do love my calf jackets, they're pretty heavy. I've worn them for 15+ hours at a time, taking them off for maybe an hour or so, and I can tell you that they wear you out! I think it's great to have both for different purposes. smile.gif

jesus. i dont know what to say and I don't want to resort to macho-isms, but you gotta man up if you're jacket is wearing you out...

I'll admit that my backpack, when loaded up, gets pretty tiring. but your calf jacket?

the italian calf jackets were (are) no joke.

I don't know how long you've worn your calf jackets for but 15+ hours everyday for a week can get rough. Then again, I'm a small Asian dude at 5'9" 160.

I dunno man, try wearing a VTG for 20+ hours of travel and ten days of solid, constant use. It's kind of a relief to have a lamb jacket to wear. What's not to like about it? I love that stuff, it feels like the softest little glovesies.
post #22047 of 42931
the VTG is a completely different story.
post #22048 of 42931
I agree. The difference in wear experience between lamb and calf is fairly dramatic. It will take a good 30 or 40 wears for calf to start feeling comfortable in movement. Lambskin wears the same on day 1 and day 50, no breaking in necessary

Long time follower of this thread but I'm pretty sure this is my first actual post in it.
Brown bomber arrived today, shipped on Monday (shipping is as fast as I've heard it was !) and I had ordered the week before cutoff.
I am 5'9 and ~145-150lbs, and this is custom measurements between size 46 and 48- thanks for the sizing help charly.

Forgive the crappy straight out of the bag iPhone pic, I'm just excited to have this! Can't wait for it to be cold enough to actually wear.

You guys have already heard this a thousand times throughout this thread but this thing is awesome, construction is top notch and the leather is soft and amazing. I'm glad I ordered before the hiatus began. Thanks Drew and co!
