That looks really great, @Lorcan7. Starting to regret not buying that PO jacket...

You posted one on SF a few years ago that was mind blowing.

@Lorcan7 looks great. How do you find the sizing on Post Overalls? I keep looking at the sizing and wondering whether I'd get away with a large rather than my usual XL or whether it's just the cut...

Thanks!  PO stuff is often slightly narrow in the shoulder and short in the sleeves so even if the chest measurements look big some of that is just the cut rather than them actually running large.  I'm a 38 chest and take a M for reference.  Having said that my only experience is with the engineer jacket, which is (as far I understand) on the slimmer end of the spectrum of Post jackets, so with a BDU or a Cruzer jacket you might get away with going down to a L, but I think probably best to stick with your usual size.

I like how you played with the subtle prints but kept the color monochrome and I luv the flower pin...so romantic.
Wish you can change the shoes to a tan like something like this floral printed suede to compliment the blues

Around '89 - '90 - a mere callow youth smile.gif I kept the pony tail up until my early 20's - had a few years break, grew it for a few years late 90's and gave up with it over 10yrs ago.

Thanks - most helpful! I'm not overly broad in the shoulder, but big in chest and long in arms - think orangutan wink.gif

Cool man, i had long hair in the late 90s/early 2000s, cut it off and grew it back again as well then cut again. It became too much of a hassle. I keep thinking about growing the hair long again...

Lorcan helped me with sizing when I got mine. I went with an XL on the Engineers as it appears to be PO's slimmest cut. For reference, this SS, I chose L in EG, am a 42 chest. The PO in XL measures 24" p2p/ seam to seam. Perhaps half an inch bigger than ideal for me, but the L is dramatically smaller at 22" which would not work for me on a casual jacket like that. Arm measures 20.5" pit-to-cuff (Measured that way as the jacket is raglan construction). Hope that's helpful. 

 

P.S. Young MoK reminds me of a young Neil Young :)

Cheers - I'm a 43 chest so XL seems to be the way to go. Off to play some Buffalo Springfield wink.gif
