Also curious, I was interested in that shirt the first go but didn't fund it.  Would like to see some pics of it made up if possible

Anyone have photos of the Japan Super Bright jeans?

I love my gen 1 oxblood trucker too.  I have mixed emotions about the gen 2 trucker.  What do you like about it?

 

I like that they say the inside pocket is larger as hopefully it would fit a large modern phone which my gen 1 does not.

 

I don't think I like the multiple vertical bands on the gen 2 front.  It seems like too much stuff on the front.

 

It looks like maybe the gen 2 is a bit more tapered in at the mid body.  If so, that should result in a more nice fit on slim guys, so I would like that.

 

Is there any difference in the way the liner is attached to the outer body on the gen 2?  This is probably my least favorite aspect of my lined gen 1.  The liner is attached in too few places and sorta hangs loosely to the interior, and then the pocket is attached to the liner instead of the outer body causing it to not be solid.  I'm hoping Gustin improved this.

Taper is a ++ for me because of my body shape (43" chest, 31-32" waist) and the vertical bands don't particularly bother me.  Also as you mentioned, an inside pocket that holds a phone is pretty helpful.

 

Not sure on the liner, I don't actually own one and as such am going by the pictures same as you.  In my limited wears of the old trucker (<10) the lining hasn't bothered me that much.

Has anyone received/reviewed one of the L1 jackets yet?

Several have, and I'm sure they can add on to my thoughts - though I don't think anyone has a good functional review of them yet, simply because they shipped in July and its not exactly leather jacket weather.

 

I ordered a CXL Natural in L and it fit true to measurements on site.  The first jacket I received had some visible issues with one of the sleeves.  I was able to return it for a new jacket within days.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

I have worn my new jacket around the home probably 10ish times in an effort to break it in before the cool weather arrives.  My jacket was extremely thick and stiff upon arrival, causing it to drape awkwardly.  After a few hours of wear inside, it has started to break in a bit and I expect it to continue to soften up over time.  So far, considering the relative price point, I'm very satisfied and would recommend if you like the styling and features.

 

Happy to answer any specific questions you have.

Search back to 6/27/16 and you'll find my review of the L1 CXL#8.  Only initial impressions as it's not yet leather coat season in CA.

Does anyone have a pic of the 121 indigo x red flannel from a previous drop? Looking for something that shows how big the checks are since I can't picture it with just the swatch.

I had one and the checks were like 2" or so if I remember correctly.

 

The bigger issue is these thinner flannels, I've had that one and 2 more, come in slightly under spec across the chest and under the arms.

Thanks for the feedback I think that is wider than I was looking for. Strange that it would come in under spec if it was thinner. I would have thought it would have felt smaller with thicker material.

Going to check past campaigns to see if they have done a finer check, otherwise I may need to check Luxire or just bite the bullet and get this one.

Please and thank you.

 

Thank you for posting a CXL #8 single piece belt!

They did an Albiate Burgundy Blue Flannel a few months back that had medium sized checks (much smaller than 2").  The material is very nice and buttery soft.  I no longer wear mine because I decided the scoops are absurd but its a good shirt if you like the fit.  Around $150 though.

Thank you Gustin for placing an updated on out account page regarding items that should have shipped being delayed due to the move!

post #9855 of 10344

I'm not one to complain, but i love how i get a notification the shorts arrived today.  Look in my email and see you can now buy them immediately and with no shipping.  Kind of a nice F U to the people that backed them originally.

Oh well, live and learn for being an early adopter.
