  1. I was the same way when I got my first 'decent' jacket that wasn't actually great. I tried for quite some time to convince myself that it was good enough when I knew deep down that it wasn't. 

    Once I got my first truly great jacket (which was also a RMC A2), I could tell the difference immediately and I never had to convince myself to be happy with it.


  2. Does anyone know the actual weight of this fabric? I'm assuming it's the same as the one released before. I love the look of the jacket, but I'm hoping it's fairly light. It's not going to take time away from me wearing my leather jackets.


  3. Golden Bear is not bad. That price though is just too much for what you get IMO. Aero is not much more as is Thedi Leathers and for the same price as the Taylor Stitch, Schott is  better as is Vanson. In fact, Vanson can get you something better for less money.


  4. I will never understand this whole sea wash thing. 

    This is even more ridiculous than the "don't wash your jeans" mentality in my view. Even if it does do anything, which I doubt, it's so silly and ridiculous that it's not worth it.

    This post is a little strange because they seem to be trying to give a balanced take on it, giving pros and cons, but I still have doubts that there are pros at all.

    They even say themselves that if you are going to sea wash, you should machine wash afterward... so why sea wash in the first place? I don't see how a bit of sand rubbing really helps your jeans look better at all.

    I'm very surprised you like Tanuki as much as you do. Even, at all... 

    I like a lot of jeans that are not strict repro actually. I just don't wear them or buy them too much anymore. I like a lot of Strike Gold fabrics, Tanuki fabrics, Samurai etc and my all time favorite denim fabric is from RJB. I have come close to buying many of them. I still regret not grabbing one of the Samurai 25oz anniversary pairs.


  6. Yeah the Oni collab denim is a little more neppy than I would like, but I think the warp and weft colors together are why I like it so much.

     

    That Flat Head denim looks brilliant and I would love a pair of those. Shame about the sizing. We have both sized incorrectly, but in the opposite directions :D


  7. @mpukas these are the regular cut with the earth denim. 

    As with many 'regular' or 'retro/vintage' cuts that are not made by actual repro brands, the rise is too low. I was sent them a few months ago when my waist was 3" wider and even then, they were slightly loose even after a machine wash. I bought them oversized for a higher rise, but the rise is still too low for me. Other than that, I like the cut. The hip flare is becoming too much on me now, but that obviously wouldn't be a problem with the correct size. 

    The denim is nice. My favorite of theirs is their 21oz secret denim collab with Oni, but I like this denim a lot as well. Nice texture and character without any over the top elements. My favorite fabric still goes to the last RJB fabric, but I like this a lot too. Construction is also quite good. I'm working on a full review as well. Basically my only real complaint is the rise which isn't low, just not as high as I would like.

    @dudewuttheheck Did you shrink it further ? It fits sooo much better now and your lost of weight is really noticeable. Well done !

    @Flash Nice CSF tux! I love it

    Yes I hot washed and tumble dried it in order to shrink it down further. It shrunk a lot more than I expected, but I am glad it did.

    It's funny that it fits better now that I'm smaller and I always thought it was oversized, but yeah losing 26 pounds helped.

    Yep, I was confused what you were talking about but as the nice person I am, I simply kept my mouth shut  ;)

    Lol feel free to bust on me for that. It was dumb enough that I left it up for posterity.

    ^ Jack definitely steals you the show ;)

    It really does, doesn't it? I know I just said mine fits better now, but I really wish it looked as good on me as @Flash's looks on him.

    *EDIT* Wow, I read Jack as jacket :D That's how much I like his jacket. 


  10. Show Goto from White Kloud Boots came to LA on vacation in early December and we were able to set up a fitting for people at Railcar Fine Goods in Monrovia. It was a great event and he was busy with fittings all day. I also included one of the pictures I took of him when I took him to Huntington Beach. He's a great guy and I am glad to call him a friend now along with being my favorite boot maker.

    I'm wearing Freewheelers, The Real McCoys, PTC, Railcar, and of course White Kloud

    I don't know what his kit is aside from the hat which is Dappers and the shoes which he obviously made for himself.

    No probs,

    Often the case with vintage 'sportswear'  they're cut for a 1970's pre-fructose, sporting generation of Americans (broad at shoulder and narrow at hip) You should be ok with an XL they're a 80/20 cotton/polly blend so they have plenty of give.

    Yeah I'm trying to get back to that type of physique. Technically I'm halfway there, but this is the more difficult half now. I'm not worried about the length either as I tuck everything.

    We get more than our fair share of rain in Sheffield, the Pennines (Englands backbone) seperates us and Manchester so its often raining either here or there but more often than not... both.

    Not at all.. an Etsy seller called 'LegitVintage' based in Ohio had a stock of these baseball/warm up tee's all in DS condition, some are noted as being shop soiled (yellowing fold marks) mine included but i washed them on a 30° and they look brand new, i was planning on soaking then in Vanish but it wasn't necessary.

    Ive just checked and they still have plenty left although the sizes are dwindling.

    Check the sizing Jake, it sounds odd but i'm pretty sure you would need an XL in these, the hem wrinkles up so don't worry about them being too long.

    Grabbed the last white/purple one that was available in XL. Big thanks for the help! I really appreciate it. I've always wanted a baseball t like this and purple is my favorite color.

    You weren't kidding about the sizing. It was perplexing. The large was absolutely tiny compared to the XL. I wish the mediums actually fit like mediums. I could have grabbed more.

    Thanks dude.

    You might have to wait till the rain stops and the sun comes out, it barely makes it above the horizon at this time of year... fingers crossed for a day in March

    I would recommend sizing up on these, they're a sporty fit ie- broad at shoulder and snug at the waist.

    I guess my sunny socal self cannot comprehend how much it rains in the UK :D

    Do you mind telling me where you got these? You seem to imply there are more available.
