Hey all, I plan on buying a secondhand Buzz Rickson x William Gibson MA-1 bomber jacket. One particular listing I see shows a white scuff on the front of the jacket. Curious if anyone has experience buffing out scuffs on nylon on these types of jackets, and if it's worth haggling on price because of the blemish? Thank you!

Here are some shots from the seller. Admittedly small, but since it's in a very obvious spot on the jacket I'd definitely want to figure out how to repair the damage.

Honestly not even sure what I'm looking at here 🤣

Hah - maybe I'm just overthinking it then if it ain't that obvious. Here's a zoomed out shot.
At the end of the day, you are the one purchasing the jacket and want to be satisfied with it. I barely notice it, but that doesn't mean that you don't. I'm not sure I have any solutions besides a damp rag wipe down though. Hopefully someone here has a better idea.

On first spec, these Mr. Freedom Stan Ts (seconds) are dope. Super soft, and good fit (for me).

Tough to tell, most marks do rub off the BR nylon in my experience
That's what I'm thinking. He offered an even lower price, so I bit. Hoping it's that simple of a fix! But yeah, the lighting is a bit bright so I'm also hoping if it's not reparable it's not too noticable in regular lighting conditions.

Yes the nylon is fairly reflective, my bomber which I've passed on to my partner has a few little burns, and 'rubbing' spots, if they don't buff out they're fairly invisible! Enjoy!

Those RMC tiger stripe shorts are calling my name. I like the Buzz Rickson gold version that just came out, but the sizing seems off. Barnstormer got them in so Celluloid should today/tomorrow.

Do the shorts fit like the pants?

I would like to buy the S/S 2023 RMC Linen Atlier pants, but I can't find them except on RMC Japan and RMC International (in my size sold out yet). Neither Barnstormer nor Celluloid nor RMC Nagoya have them, which is quite strange.

I haven't seen other retailers carrying it so I would wait as more stockists receive their shipments. They seem to run 1-2 months behind the JP site.

I've owned five pairs of the 710, one of my favorite denim cuts. The denim has a beautiful crispness when new, and when you follow Resolute's guidance on frequent washes they turn as soft as sweatpants. For my build they fit great, just be mindful to check measurements and you may want to consider sizing up one. I love the leg twist that develops and the fact that they cut to different inseams.

How did you size your compared to regular 501:s?

Also, anyone able to compare sizing/fit/finish to orSlow 105?

Some retailers already have items which were released weeks later than mentioned trousers. That's what makes it strange. Perhaps there is no demand for it among retailers?
