    Cult, those sliq's were originally raw, right? The fade is looking subtly sick. I have a get a pair when I'm back in LA in a few months. Nice work.

    norcal, can't say I've ever seen a jacket like that. Pretty cool.



    Hey, thanks. Wasn't sure the shape would work for me, and I might have gotten a size too large, but I like it. And it's really fucking warm, too.

    This evening, trying to get better light for these.

    It is warm. It was down in the forties here last night. I had my w+h shawl on, and felt warn (though... I'd just hit the gym though, so that may have also contributed.)

    After a wash, the shawl shrinks down just a smidge (washed it last night as well). In any case, a sweater like that would look wierd if it were too tight, imho. Fitted, yes, tight, no. Look at old pictures of McQueen (and that man wore his stuff fitted) or Brando in shawl collars, and you'll see what I mean. I think that you got the right size.

    Probably right, and I have not washed it yet. Any particular care instructions from tiger fleece owners?

    The jacket is indeed an F-2.

    Shoes are converse varvatos WCT2 from a few years back, picked up off ebay. Like these, but different colorway.

    I succumbed to the siren call of the styleforum sales pitch, and I do not regret it.

    DC suburbs eh.. what size jacket do you normally wear, and whereabouts are you? [​IMG]

    If you got the last L from Peasant, a pox upon you and your kin.

    That's a modified F2 though...as they're normaly longer ending below the belt with another closure.

    Wearing a very chi-chi version of a CMF stylef outfit (if he lived in Boston) today.

    Old, patched up olive John Varvatos jacket (heavy weight Lampo zipper, since people seem to care right now) over an LVC S506XX Levis jacket (a gift), rinsed (this is the pleated "Victory" jacket with the patch pocket and pleated front and cinch back), over a W+H grey striped hoodie over a orange-brown Jay Allen blank tee. Black Fred Bare Engineers cap. Baltazar Iron cross belt holding up my APC New Standards. Black Chucks.

    Sorry, no pics because Jen got out the door while my slack ass was still getting dressed.

    Fuuma, I think my F-2 is just too small. The only mod I made, anyway, was snipping the elastic at the bottom. I don't know what size it is, though IIRC the seller said it was a 104 "c". I agree that most pics of F-2s and designer versions hit lower.

    LA Guy, that's some serious layering. Need pics!

    Cool flannel, did you have the lenght adjusted?
    Thanks and nope, that's the length it came in. It's unwashed, so it'll probably get even shorter and come in in the body afterwards, which is a plus.
