    the bomber is waxed cotton with black leather trim, and you want to buy mine [​IMG]

    (i've actually been offered a kidney for it, but I already have 2 so had to pass...)

    I've liked what I've seen of Krane shirts in person. I haven't tried them on so I can't comment on the fit but the fabric and construction were what you'd expect from the brand.

    ^ Nice, but I think some of his other jackets are better designed, and whats with the half ribbed waist? are the epaulets removable?

    The passants are removable, yes. I was chatting with Ken, and he told me that when you remove them, you are left with a punkish stud, sort of Road warrior style, which I think is pretty cool.

    The retail on the jacket is $1430, but Ken has one left in a size 38, and he told me that he'd cut a deal if someone on the forum wanted it.

    If it was an olive ayling in 34 I'd go pick it up today.

    I saw and touched the leather jacket the other day. The leather did not feel nice (and like all his other coats), it is heavy; maybe too heavy. On the other hand, the Langdon knit jacket was beautiful.
    Has anyone try to rewax their jackets?

    Not yet but I'm not expecting it to be any worse than rewaxing any of my Filson. Barbour or Australian Outback stuff.

    They are fitted. Mine is a 40 and that's my suit jacket size.

    Sizing is true to slightly oversized with the two jackets I have (09 Emory and 10 Ayling) relative to "designer" sizing. Very true to size if you're thinking of traditional american sizing. I'm a 39 and the 38 fits me perfect in both. If you're a 36 I would recommend going with a 36, not sizing down, although I don't think Ken makes a 34 anyway. These coats have have fairly thick linings and you wanna be able to layer under them.
