    Maybe you're comparing the MA-1 and the L-2B? http://www.selfedge.com/buzz-rickson?product_id=647 http://www.selfedge.com/buzz-rickson?product_id=1936

    ^ Hmmm. I think this is *usually* sound advice, but I found that OAs stretch A LOT, quite quickly, and without much effort. I sized up one from the tagged size in the Saddle Pants because I was worried they would be too tight. It took about ten minutes of wear for them to fit comfortably around the waist. Within a day or two they were significantly more baggy in the thigh than I would have liked. I still love them, don't get me wrong. But in hindsight I think I maybe should have gone with the tagged size. I suppose it depends on what kind of fit you are going for... (and maybe how active you are...)

    Agreed, but I prefer the old pocket design. Why mess with perfection? All the tees are great. The stripey ones and the heather grey henleys are also pretty fantastic looking. Yeah it's usually pretty easy to pick just one or two standouts, but not so much this time around. I have a sinking feeling you're going to be taking a lot of my money very soon. And speaking of denim jackets I don't need more of... Just noticed the denim Deputy. That may be in competition with the original Slinger for awesomest ranch jacket.

    SS2018 collection is up on their website. Definitely don't need another denim jacket, but the redesigned Saddle Horn is pretty desirable. (The new Slinger... not so much.) Would also go for that drug rug if I thought I could pull it off. (I can't.) Also, lots of good shirts. http://soc-la.com/item.php?c=1495 http://soc-la.com/item.php?c=1493 http://soc-la.com/item.php?c=1469

    From the SE website: "Two snap-down tabs (one on each breast) for retaining headset and microphone wiring leads, exactly as on original 1957 MA-1's."

    Those black 3sixteens are one of my favorite pairs of jeans. The denim is really special and the cut is (for me) just perfect. They are slim fitting, but less so than their ST cut. Closer to the “straight taper” or “weightlifter” cut that’s all the rage these days. Can’t believe these haven’t already sold out.

    Bought the saddle pants and they arrived yesterday. Not even two full days of wear, and these are now my favorite fitting pair of jeans. The combination of the very forgiving denim, which stretches out just the right amount in all of the right places, and the not-too-slim but still slim cut, make for jeans that are both comfortable and flattering. If you sometimes go for the "straight tapered" or "weightlifter" cut, don't be afraid of these. I sized up one from my usual at Jeremy's suggestion and I think that was the right call. TTS would have worked, too, but would have probably been a bit too restrictive. (This is my first time posting after a few years of lurking, btw. Hi.)
