    ^^Good stuff! You ever post "fits"?

    I saw the junya/laboreur jackets today, surprisingly thin material compared to the standard le laboreur materials. Looked nice though.


    Thanks. I haven't posted any fits up to this point other than the obligatory ToJ leather fitpic. I've got a somewhat schizo protective instinct over my anonymity..

    I'm not sure the J/L sits well with my style, but I haven't had any luck finding spring outerwear so I took the chance. Bobo I remember you starting a thread about MH/MHL, have you since become an advocate? The value proposition is questionable, but the details are really unique. I've been wearing the shirts a size up (i.e. small for 36) in the warmer weather, which gives a nice relaxed feel without looking too sloppy.


    laboreur jacket is not good, cept blue.

    I read the lighter blue uses a different material than the two I ordered. It would be nice to get to experience these things before buying, but I don't have that luxury.

    I have a pair of black MHL ticket pants. Fit is on point, but the material is really blaha for the price (although I got mine on sale). Hesistant to buy anything more, even though I like the look.

    I have the ticket pants from a few seasons ago and love the material. It's super sensitive to skin oils though, which maybe isn't so apparent with your black pair. I'm always touching the material because it's got a nice feel, but it leaves trails where I touch.

    When I tried on the blue I felt like I looked like a doctor or something [​IMG]

    PaulYAY, any word on how MHL fits? Was thinking about picking up a few shirts from SW, but have never handled them before. Worth the retail?

    They're cut on the large side (5 inches of chest clearance) so the safest bet is to go TTS 38=S. They also work well sized up if you're not layering over them though imo. Worth is highly relative. I like the details and don't know of any comparables.

    Check Oi Polloi for full measurements.

    ^^ Yup, had that for 8-9 years now, thing is solid.

    Probably my second best purchase of the year, I got the AdvantageBed and that thing is like plywood when it's cold, had to exchange it. The SupremeCloud is crazy comfortable, I literally didn't want to get out of bed this morning.


    Also, couldn't decide which one to get so...

    Cheers, man. Will be picking up a piece to see for myself. [​IMG]

    I'll do my level best not to wear them in any fit pics.
