    I recall reading somewhere that there were raw and one-wash variants of the shooting shirt. I'd definitely expect to see some shrinkage on the raw. Hot soak should do the trick, if not toss it in the dryer too.

    Fit pics would be great too!

    Just to reiterate, size on on those truckers if you can find one. I'm 5'8 190 and cant even button my Large.

    NYC (all 4 levis stores) are sold out of the trucker in XL. Great.

    Wow...got the shirt in today and it is HUGE. I ordered a medium and was a little afraid it might be too small as I'm 6' 200lbs. It's not small at all and it fits really big. That being said, the material feels like completely raw denim...thick and stiff. Tag says dry clean only....I wonder what a hot wash/hot dry would do to it. PTP measures about 24" right now. Can't decide if I'll try the hot wash or if I need to return it and maybe try a small if possible.

    whaaa?? [​IMG]

    If the shirts raw you may want to hot wash/dry it, would shrink significantly.

    I blame robin.

    sockpuppets, if you had a problem with the over-oiled finish, why buy another Filson oil-finish tin cloth jacket?


    I've seen the one I linked to, it was nowhere near as saturated. I like the oil finish, it just needs to be manageable. The primary reason I'm getting rid of my trucker jacket is fit.

    Does anyone have an XL they're looking to get rid of?

    Pretty nice jacket. Sizing up one seems about right. I wear a medium in pretty much everything J. Crew; this is a large. [​IMG]
    Well, you bought a jacket that's a size too big for you. What the fuck is wrong with this forum all of a sudden?

    Keep checking Filson.com. The jacket has been in and out of stock there, and late last night they had both L and XL shown available.

    Also was surprised that this is set up as a real shooting shirt...has a nylon backing over the one shoulder pad area that opens with velcro so you can put an actual pad in there I believe. Wasn't really expecting that on this shirt.

    Is Levi's supposed to get a restock or is this a one-shot thing?

    As a data point, my jacket isn't oily at all - certainly nothing like what others are describing.

    Stop trolling.

    It's hard to tell conclusively because of the pose and also because he didn't button it, but looking at the left shoulder, the shoulders seem 1.5-2" too big for him.
