    • Sure. I'll put some up in the next couple days. I was pleasantly surprised by how light the fabric is. Definitely crisp and sturdy, but not so heavy as to feel like a jacket. It feels somewhere in between a very crisp chambray and a canvas fabric. MF has it clocking in around 8oz in their specs.
    • #16 coming back into the game... Got mine near the end of October, after a size swap, so no special pocket bags or competition patch for me. Have been wearing them pretty consistently since, with a week off here and there. Took a while to get used to the incredibly high rise, but get used to them I did, and now I love the fit. First pic is April, after one wash. The rest are a couple of days ago, after another wash, and a crotch and hem repair.  
    • Nice looking shirt.  Can we get some post wash pics?  
        Does the fabric feel light?
    • Definitely need to wash the ‘non-wash’ S601XX twice (if not more, but probably unlikely) - that’s two cycles at 40°C/3x rinse/400rpm spin - both times there was shrinkage, second time not so much, mostly on the rise and inseam. Back rise (crotch bartack to top of waistband above belt loop) 470mm > 455mm Front rise (crotch bartack to top of waistband above button) 335mm > 320mm Thigh (crotch bartack straight across to outseam) 340mm > 333mm Knee (330mm below crotch bartack straight across) 250mm > 245mm Hem (measured at finished edge before and after washing) 223mm > 218mm Inseam (hemmed at 810mm) 810mm > 770mm Waist (pulled tight) 880mm > 840mm   In summary - don’t size down from your usual FW size, and most outlets are saying the ‘cut’ is between a ‘47 and a ‘51 … IMO they are not ‘between’. I can understand from the point of view that the ‘47 is broadly similar on the top block and the taper from the knee is more reminiscent of the ‘51 BUT they are more voluminous than either (especially the ‘51). I think the cut is brilliant, it gives the impression of the thicker silhouette which I think is how war cuts should be, but different enough, because of that slight taper, from the ‘47 which really is (was) their apex of authenticity of cut but which can be a little too wide for the modern palate.
