    Question: The Officer's Chino currently listed on the website are 11.5 oz. Does anyone know what the weight the limited edition Officer's Chino (from a couple of seasons ago) was? What about the Officer's Chino which were available last season?

    IIRC, that belt had a nice buckle. It wouldn't suprise me if the seller decided to keep just the buckle since wider brass garrison buckles can be hard to come by. Speaking of which, if the belt does measure a proper 1 3/4" to 2" wide you would be suprised how hard it can be to come buy a suitable buckle.

    Yeah and it takes even bigger balls to post under a BS screename (interesting choice by the way) in anonymity sitting behind a computer.

    Now back to the reason most are here. I got a few pics of stuff from the fall collection sent to me. The moto jacket looks alot like a Belstaff to me....which is not a bad thing.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Is that Moto Jacket black? Waxed cotton? Looks interesting but it might just be better (quality-wise) to just buy a Belstaff...

    I really like RRL but my Oilcloth Hunting Jacket is definitely looking worse for wear now. Its gotten pretty tatty - specifically around the cuffs where the waxed fabric actually seems to have split in several places.

    That looks like my Barbour Bedale. Which makes sense since its pretty much the same coat

    Yep. Worn it almost every day since I bought it a year ago (or so). I don't go rock climbing in it or anything unusual - just wear it to and from work. I guess I should probably have another light jacket and start a rotation - maybe I'll get a Belstaff :)


    Good to know the Barbour's do this too. I owned a couple - a Bedale and New Utility but got rid of them both after getting the Oilcloth as I preferred the look of the RRL. I wonder if its something which could be fixed with the application of some wax?

    Correct on both counts, black and waxed....$690 retail.

    As for the Oilcloth (personal fav in my collection) sorry to hear. I personnally like the wear (naturally vintage looking) but understand why you would be disappointed. June however has not been a great month for the oilcloth or this thread because of it! [​IMG]
