Whoa nelly! You have the boro trucker as well?? Fit pics please!

To be fair though, I am not sure the spring version existed three years ago? Afaik the blanket lined version was the only one available in the beginning...
If that’s true it makes me feel better. I’ve never actually worn it out because that lining is intense for Florida even when it gets “cold.” I’ve kept it just because it’s so nice and I have a hard time letting go of nice stuff even if it’s just hanging in the closet.

What do you all think of this shirt? I don't have any madras shirts and was thinking about getting this done custom as a shirt jacket for the summer. Thinking long sleeve, no chest pockets, with side pockets. I appreciate any feedback.

It’s fine. I don’t love the color combination, but ymmv. Also seems a bit conservative, but that may be a plus or a minus.

Edit: this was for xxghostface

I was admiring that shirt yesterday. I like the shirt jacket idea but would personally go for 3 or 4 patch pockets. But that’s just me.

that is such an interesting idea. are you thinking short sleeve w/ patch pockets almost like a guayabera type shirt?

I hadnt thought of short sleeves, but that could be really cool like you said as a guayabera style.

I was thinking in the way you suggested with long sleeves as more light weight over shirt / chore coat style with two waist style patch pockets and either none, one, or two chest pockets.

Never had any LVC jeans. Are they worth it?

How much? I have LVC 517s and they are noticeably nicer than regular levis. Not as nice as Kapital or anything but nice. I paid about 200.

Think I can get these for about $200. Pass or kop?
