101 IT released several times, first release was in 2009 or 2010 maybe (with cotton lining). I sold my 2012 iteration, as the suede felt like it would rip at the armhole after some wear (buttery soft). The later hand paint iteration was great, much thicker suede, but color would fade allover everywhere...I believe one version was released this spring, and it was actually reversed leather when I handled it at FIL, definitely the thicker/tougher suede used to date.
The ones that I’ve been looking at don’t seem to have any lining. Hard to tell the quality as well. Would you say the later/newer iterations were of a high quality? I guess I may have to go for a newer variant then if that’s the case (2015-16). How’s the sizing?

I apply saphir renovateur twice a year and that's it. If they are new and you know it is gonna rain, I would apply it. Applying too much and too often is not recommended

Do folks have any sizing advise for the Wawona? Generally Visvim outerwear is pretty small, so you tend to think of sizing up, but the Wawona looks pretty generous. I am usually a 2 (lhamo, dugout, etc), but I was actually wondering about a 1 for the Wawona. Thoughts? Thanks all.

Thanks; really appreciate the advice. 2 it is for me for the Wawona then,.

Now, any thoughts on the Lugli - looks like this is one where you might want to size up, in my case that'd be from a 2 to a 3. Again, I am fine with the Lhamo shirt and Dugout in a 2. Should I stick with 2 for a Lugli (available now), or hold out for a 3?

Achse is nice, but I sold mine as it was too tight. I feel it looks better when sized up. Which season is yours?

I want to say FW17
It’s a size 1 and I was a bit skinnier when I got it so it was perfect. It’s a bit tight now but still wearable and a really nice jacket.

I find mine fits really slim. I want to say it’s FW16. But it’s a gorgeous jacket.

Wondering - can anyone out there identify this jacket, supposedly from 2001? Cheers.
