Heavily considering the vest
I don’t know if this is a factor for you, but this Warehouse collab vest has horse, instead of steerhide and will be pretty limited. For me, I knew I would be kicking myself if I didn’t get this one. Warehouse is my favorite of the Osaka 5

@XWT Here’s a pic of the Olde Homesteader sweat. This is a size 42 with 59cm P2P

The sweatshirt is a really nice piece, but it looks a bit like it shrank in the dryer in your fit pic. IMO vintage sweatshirts should fit looser in the body too, but if you're happy with how it fits, maybe try stretching out the arms when you wash it.

Went by S&S today. Met a fellow stan named Stan, tried on shit and bounced like a schlub.

The mirror was slanted so not particularly kind. I’m somewhere around 220 these days, 6’3” with around a 41” chest.

New J-24 (2021 cut), Size 44

I don’t like this one. On every model I’ve seen but one it creates a round silhouette from the front.

Nelson, Size 42

The pinlock zipper caught on the 44 and so initially I wasn’t able to try it. They got it open but found the zipper defective. Neil said it’s the second jacket they’re having to send back with this kind of issue.

The 44 scales pretty decently - it’s not a huge leap from the 42. Just a little longer in arms and fuller in body. The 42 was too small to zip, and I think the 44 was borderline (I didn’t risk zipping due to above issue).

The leather on both was fairly thick, around the same as my J-24L, maybe a mm thicker. It was also surprisingly broken in, although that may be from how many times it has been tried on (RIP brand story).

I also tried the brown black deerhide Disfarmer in a size 44, which I quite liked. The leather is very supple. However, I didn’t even try to zip due to the chest being too tight.

The color is black but struck more of a dark brown to me, and in that light.

What didn’t you like about the new J24 fit? Mine is arriving this week, I picked it specifically because of the room in the body.

Real McCoy's 001 washed, from this past SS.

Obviously the jacket isn't suited to me either in cut or size. But what you can see from my photo of there being kind of a ( ) effect on my torso is something you can also see below on Gen and this RMC Nagoya model:

The best shot of it I've seen was from the FW21 preview:

1635116448080.png


But even there you can see it.

If it just had that appearance on me, I'd attribute it to my physique. But I think the evidence says it's in the cut. They widened the chest, but more or less kept the shoulder and waist the same as the older model. With the curved hem it just ends up looking round.

Tbh I kinda like that for wider bottoms. However I can’t really notice it outside of the Gen pic, but I’m not really well versed in McCoy’s leather jackets. Thanks for the insight!

You missed me by a day. I am also annoyed at the zipper issue on the 30's sports jackets.

I think for double riders, you're going to like the Fountainhead ones - they lack the ( ) effect you're perceiving.

I was there and mostly tried not to buy stuff as I had just put in a preorder for the transcontinental boots. Can't wait to see the store get all the decorations and look like a proper spot to drop by.

I have finally found my ideal sweatshirt. These two are from Buzz Rickson and for less than a buck fifty, I think they present an excellent value. The quality on these is great, with the grey feeling slightly heavier (maybe fluffier?) and a bit looser, although I just received the black today. It was surprisingly tough to find a sweat that had a tighter neckline and didn't extend too far past my waist. While a lot of places say to size up, I would stick to your usual size in these as they do loosen with wear. This is a 38-40 and I have a 40-41" chest.
