1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Hard to tell from that photo newcomer, but fit looks good to me, feel like it would be too small in a 50

    50 isn't going to be a good look I don't think, especially if you'll ever wear more than a T-shirt underneath it. I think you usually buy slightly bigger than I do for most NMWA products and I have a sz 50 5-zip (although it's from a few seasons ago).

    Thats the lamb 5zip right? I own both the calf and the lamb in a 50 and the lamb runs big. I think its just supposed to have a slouchier fit. A year or two ago on oki-ni I saw the model wore a 50 in the calf and a 48 in the lamb. The lamb looked mega cropped but fit width-wise, which tends to be how its modeled online. I'd recommend staying TTS rather than down.

    Yeah I am usually between a 50 and 52... I think the 52 is probably right. Not going to kop now, just wanted to get an idea on size and fit. Good to know regarding the shoulders though. Thanks for all the feedback guys.

    Yeah man. First acceptance. To say I feel relieved is a huge understatement. It's all gravy from here. I'm perfectly content going where I got in.
    Want to go to barneys/saks this weekend and try shit on?

    Thoughts on the Hickorees 1920s Civilian A-1 Moto Jacket, Two-Tone Horsehide Leather?

    I love everything except that it does not have a one-piece back.

    Agreed, I just prefer the aesthetic of a one piece back. Although I can see the reason they didn't do one piece was to show the contrasting leathers.

    Here is my alternative choice to the Hickorees A1 I posted earlier. It's a Johnson Leathers Civilian A2. Which do y'all prefer?

    For reference, the Hickorees again...

    Thanks for the pic.

    The font of "Made IN" looks the same with Ann D. Made in Portugal? They may using the same factory Ann D use.
