    @kindofyoung did you end up receiving those derbies? Any good?
    I'm still on the hunt.

    First is Spellbound, second is Momotaro, right? I tried on the Spellbound one at BOW and found the fit to be kind of awkward. I own the Momotaro one and I fucking love it. I'm pretty sure everyone told me not to buy it when I posted it here, but it's one of my favorite purchases of 2015. I recommend sizing up one from your normal American size if you go with it; I'm an M in most things and an L fits me perfectly.

    It's about as thick as the rest of the Uniqlo wool outerwear (similar to the chesterfield, if you've handled that). If that's okay with you, the cut is pretty nice.

    Thanks, true or size down? Chest measurement looks fine for true but shoulders are really wide.

    Yeah, I'd go true. Butttt, I have broader shoulders, so who knows.

    Yeah got them the other day, unfortunately ordered a size too large so will have to send em back to exchange for a smaller pair.

    Leather isn't particularly impressive but they feel pretty solid otherwise, good shape and the levitate-sole is cool as fuck.

    What do you guys think? I tend to dress in classic style and this is about the limit of how wild'n'wacky i get. To be worn with dark jeans and boots.

    This is more like which one should I buy. I know I want a green field jacket. Quite lean more towards the Achse. I like pointy flap pockets. But I also like small lapels on the Kilgore.

    I wear mine often and really like it. I sized down and it still fits pretty loose.
