    I tried the XL and the shoulders were really narrow which made the chest fit weird and then the waist was really loose.

    I don't know why these pattern cutters or whoever the fuck can't make proper fitting clothes.

    @cyc wid it If you're willing to go vintage, might want to checkout Lee Storm Riders.

    There are Japanese repros but the originals are easily attainable. Blanket lined.

    Well Levi, Lee etc went alternate between some baggy and slim cuts depending on yrs, whatever. Maybe people just want baggy and get slim or the other way around. I like some of the Levi jackets myself but my old APC levi copy was kidnapped by someone and she's not giving it back:butbut: so I dunno what Id get now. Old jacket was made in France and the cut was great (from 2004 or so) I didn't like the new ones I tried.

    He should've been making you sad for the last four years. I'm not a Kobe hater by any means, but between his impact on the team's salary cap, the constant injuries, and his Fletcher-inspired mentoring he's been taking things off the table for quite a while now.

    I was going to say this - I've had a few of those. They're cheap and plentiful on eBay.

    Rogue Territory has a nice lined jacket (both denim and canvas, shawl collar and normal collar)

    Man, all I want anymore is a badass shearling or horsehide jacket. That's it.

    I'm tempted to get a pattern maker to copy my ToJ MA1, to then get a leathermaker to make me a custom shearling. Need to go speak to some people on Brick Lane I guess.
