    Got my jacket yesterday, and it is amazing. I love pretty much everything about it. I'm slapping myself for never trying any RMC stuff before now. Here are a few quick fit pics. I really like the fit on this jacket. The boxy fit works much better for my tall-and-thin body type than biker-style jackets that have to fit pretty snugly to look good, and never seemed to fit right on me. The sleeves and body length are just right, and I have good mobility through the shoulders, which has been an issue with many jackets (not just leather) I've tried over the years. The construction quality is just beautiful and I love the stitching on this thing. I dearly missed the wonderful appearance, feel, and smell of veg-tanned Shinki horsehide, and look forward to breaking it in. The only complaint I have is that an interior jacket pocket would've been nice since my phone is a little too tall to fit in the front pockets with the flap down. But I realize this is a historical reproduction thing and original A-2s didn't have pockets like that, so I won't complain too much.

    Arguably my favorite jeans of all time, the 1702XX contest jeans. Don't wear these much as they need quite a few repairs at this point, but I decided to wear them today and it reminded me how much I love 'em. Can't wait for the next contest!

    What’s up guys, finally had enough time to post my P24A-S, SS18 that I had tailored. I was inspired by a pair of Stone Island pants from a few seasons ago. They were made with an inch of elastic placed on the back half of the hem. And with me being 6’2, my pin roll could only be two rolls high. Which led to the pin roll unraveling over a short amount of time. Unless I wore boots or high top sneakers, then I could roll 3 times and it wouldn’t be too short. So after dealing with the sloppy roll for about a year, I finally researched someone I felt comfortable with; not only tapering them and adding the elastic, but also bringing in the waist a total of one inch. I felt even more comfortable after showing him the complexity of the pants and then him confidently stating the specificities of the work needed to be done. For the waist, he would have to undo the 2-3 layers of the reinforcement fabric and then simply cut and adjust from there (He said afterwards that was the most difficult part). For the taper, he started right under the reinforced knee and ended with a 5”/5.5” opening (I forget exactly). Either way it’s a pretty tight fit/taper. So much so, that without the elastic I wouldn’t be able to take the pants on or off. Which would make the referenced SI pants closer to a 6” opening. Even after having my confidence built up enough to trust someone with a pair of $1000+ pants, when picking them up I felt a little nervous as to what the outcome was gonna look like. But upon first sight, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. The up close details; the stitches, straight and clean, reinforced in the right places. The back of the waist band where he cut into, all of the layers of fabric look as if they hadn’t been ripped apart and then meticulously put back together. The joining of the elastic and cotton (even though I took my SI pants home with me) looked exactly like the joining on the SI pants. Oh and the kicker, I forgot to discuss this with him beforehand but he mentioned that he noticed how tall I was, so he didn’t cut any away from the hem. Simply just pressed, tucked and stitched down the existing hem, as well as the extra fabric from the tapered leg. That’s important to me because when it comes time to recycling the trousers, I can mention to the next owner that the leg can be reverted to original (but why would I give these up and why would YOU undo this perfect fit ;). So as you can see from the fit pics, they drop perfectly now. Without any pin roll, the silhouette from the tight waist, down to the arched out hips and then slowly tapering down from there into the 5.5” taper, culminate into the perfect “wide” fitting pants. For me at least. Tired of typing now, so if I missed anything I’ll edit. But if you live in NYC, my guys name is Atef and the company name is Tailoring NYC, highly recommend. Enjoy the fit pics.

    My 1607 came in. Fits like the Levi’s 501. The texture isn’t as gritty as my other Trophy pair, but overall the fit is great. Not too narrow and full in the thigh. If anyone here is looking for a 501 style fit, these definitely do it. The only thing that sucks right now is I have to send these to get hemmed. When I lived in NC, I could go down the street to get chain stitched hemmed in Greensboro. if anyone knows of a place that can chain stitch hem in Virginia, post it!

    I don't know man. Paying 1000USD+ for pants that will look like you wore them for 10 years after 6 months? I wore P10-DS almost daily for 3 years and they still looked fresh, that's really good investment. I had to dye my -E jackets once a year so I could go to work without looking like a bum.

    no real evo, just sharing some russell moc seaside action... and then moving from suede on to roughout enjoyment: some new rw pecos to mash down... [details of 'will look better with age in three years' and bad fit pix with super wide hem... quite impressed by them tbh... thuggish build, slim contours and comfy fit] and then memory lane: first contact with such hairy things, grenson shoes from mid 2000s: nubuck treated to a lot of dubbin over the years... still contrasty in many places...

    I feel like my Memorial Jeans are just hitting that sweet spot. In for another wash they go. Also re: Roy's washing/care suggestions. I've never adhered to them myself. I'm definitely a throw-'em-in-the-wash-whenever guy just so I don't have to think about shrinkage down the road. That being said I'm tempted to try it out on my unsoaked/unworn Test Lot R01's whenever they get their time in the sun...

    I just got these yesterday. Loving the raw fit and thinking it will be even better after I give them a soak. Pretty excited for my first pair of SDA as I’ve been wanting to try the 15OZ denim.
