FCL gotta size up 1 to a 44. I'm a 41.5in chest. But the shoulders would be too big, 20inch!

Hmmm, yeah, I'm about a 40.5" chest - sometimes less, sometimes more.

I have 38.5 inch chest and went with a 42 in my FCL Edward. I usually wear a size 40 as I find whenever I try a size 38, it fits tiny and restrictive on my shoulders. Goes to show that chest size isn't the end all be all.

I should post a fit pic thought so y'all can tell me it's too big tho.

Looks good although sleeves seem like they are short. Though I don't think it's a bad look either.

I was looking at addict in the past, looking at yours I might be enticed in the future.

Yeah they are shorter than what I'm used to but I think it actually looks pretty good with a tee. Kinda punk rock. It might change as it breaks in. The shoulder construction pulls it up add away from the wrist.

It does make it easy to wear when working on stuff

The shade of burgundy on this FCL suede jacket looks delish. But all that embroidery would probably make it a tough fit...

Got my Aero Board Racer in soft black steerhide from their sale. Really digging it so far...feels substantial without being overbearing. My only complaint is how squeaky it is...hopefully it quiets down sooner rather than later.

Plz forgive the work bathroom shots - I’m still required to go into work because I’m considered “essential”. UGHView attachment 1362118View attachment 1362119
Still squeaky?

Unfortunately, yes :/ Not as bad as before though - maybe I should work out in it to expedite the process
It's only been a few days so not bad

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
