Hi! Just saw your most recent video and connected the dots. Been watching your vids for a few years, cool to see you posting on Styleforum.
@frunk - Watched earlier too. Very nice. I missed out on a moleskin 101 a few weeks ago so have my eye on that 101 now. What size do you go for and how tall are you? I have a 101 in a 5 but most jackets are 3 or 4 as the 101 seemed to be tiny!

I went for a 4 in the ict 101xx. I have a 5 in the 101 jumbo moleskin from fw19 - it was way too big so I took it to my tailor.

How tall are you? Would a 3 be a problem for me? I'm 6'2"

I’m 6’2 as well. Depends on your preference and build I guess. I felt the 3 was a bit too cropped on me

101 fits small af, 101xx runs big

I'm 6'1 and 4 was too small in the 101, 5 too big but still skintight. The 101xx fits me in a 3, and is a tad big in a 4

I’m starting to second guess my 101xx pre-order now. Went for a 2 (my tts) and I’m 5’8 145. Am I going to be swimming in it?

should be fine, may be a tad long in arms since they run a bit wider.

Main thing I want to avoid is long arms. Plus 3 is the largest size they have.

3 will be too short for you, I resold my 3 and went for 4 in 2 different iterations. Love them ! The design is naturaly oversized, if you size down it may fit good in some area but a bit weird in other, my view here. I always stick to my TTS now no matter the piece.

Would a 5 be too big then? Is there anywhere other than the Vis sites that have stocked the Moleskin 101?

@Emixam @frunk @Fycus - Would really appreciate you could share measurements for the jackets and you have the size. I want to check that they match the Vis site.

i am 188cm/73kg,.size 5 would be too big/long

sz 3 @80kg overall body and sleeves too short. keep in mind the sleeves are supposed to have a balloney shape so the pattern is.cut this.way, and to achieve this, they need to sit on your wrists. if too short you lose the shape whixh i think looked bad on me. and i just prefer a relaxed fit

Really appreciate that @Emixam. I don't think they look too bad as a 3, but could be me. Do you have the P2P and sleeve length of the 4? Or 3 is you still have it.
