Coast 2 thumper came in! Heres a quick fit i did. Really excited about this one!

Cast 2 carbons
Carbon university tee
Carnival tan beach hoodie
Coast 2 thumper

also a fit with just a white anti expo tee. I like the way it layers in the back with that cut.

last pic i layered with a grey villain (still a dope hoodie imo)

lets get some cooler weather now!
How do you like the fit of the sleeves length wise?

I like them. I’ll probably roll them mostly but they arent too long or too short. Hits me pretty good and i have longer arms. Its a dope jacket, ive been waiting a while to be able to get one since i wasnt around for avalon.

it fits perfect with a hoodie underneath, which is what ill be wearing 90% of the time in minnesota.
Listen man, I’m not trying to be a jerk. I’ve made a lot of sizing mistakes over the years. Usually when someone from the outside said, that’s too small or that too big, later on I realized it was sound advice. I think it’s hard to really judge things on yourself, it’s far easier for someone else to. If you’re spending that kind of money on a jacket, you need to know in 6 months it was the right choice. I’d buy the small and compare the two, and keep the one you like more in the end.

I like the intent of your constructive criticism but from the photos the size is at a level where personal taste can swing it either way, it's not one of those obviously missized items that you later look back and go 'holy shit I wore it like THAT?'

But then again, personally I wouldn't rely on having a hoodie underneath to make it the right size, I'd get the right size for just a tee and get a layering hoodie that's not too thick that it would affect your jacket size

I would judge the fit for the thumpers on sleeve length and where the shoulders are. I guess if you roll them up it shouldn’t look too off, but the sleeves should probably hit at your wrists. I bought a royal thumper and now have realized I probably should’ve went a size down. At the end of the day if you’re happy with it then that’s all that matters

Could anyone help me figure out my real size for Cast 2s? I'm currently wearing a size 30 Juliette since the waist was 16.5 originally (on SSense and size charts) and has now stretched to almost a 17. Granted it's been about three days of wearing, if even. They're pretty damn snug on my waist and sitting is noticeably tight, but it isn't awful. Thigh and hem-wise they actually fit perfectly, it's just the waist that's a little snug. I actually want more washes because of how ridiculously good these look in person and the quality, but I have no idea what size I get. 30 in Juliettes could be completely different from another pair based on what I've seen combing through measurement posts and listings, but a 31 or 32 could also be wrong. Do I just wing it and pray based on the Juliette sizing?

Forgot to mention I usually went for a 32-33 in jeans for Ksubi and Allsaints. Measurements were usually 16-17.

You almost need two different sized thumpers for spring / fall.
