    Nice! What are the trousers?

    Broark is this the light grey or the dark grey? I already have the charcoal, and it is in regular rotation, but I think I may like this shade even more and might just pick it up. By the way, I have hand washed mine in cold water twice and there was no noticeable shrinkage... That said, it was already pretty form fitting and stretchy, so I'm not sure I would have noticed if it did.

    Rangefinder is also S/S, as is the down vest that other retailers are carrying. Fingers crossed that they are doing ok.

    I chose my regular waist size (i.e. one size down from my usual OA size). But I tend to like a slightly slimmer fit. Those pics of Ryo have me convinced that a full tuxedo with the overalls plus the jacket is the way to go here. (That said, I only have the jacket in denim, and am planning to only do the denim pants.)

    These are so awesome. Like dude, I'm really excited about the lightweight fabrics. How is everyone thinking about sizing these?

    Love my black seed test lots. I'll try to post an evo shot soon (front only, unfortunately, for the usual reasons). They look, feel, and fit great.

    I really appreciate your help thinking this through, MJF9 and Duke.

    Thanks, Duke, this is very helpful. I may have been better off sizing down, but I'm not seeing this for sale in the smaller sizes anywhere (that said, my "searching Japanese webstores" skills are pretty weak, especially with Rakuten Global Marketplace gone). So I'm going to see what a tailor can do.

    Here are some fit pics. IDK, maybe I should have gone down a size?

    42 jacket. 34 trousers. Happy to measure for you... I'm actually still waiting on the vest because Speedway didn't have it and the seller I found wants to use EMS, who apparently still aren't shipping to the US. It really is an awesome suit.

    (Sorry to respond to such an old post; hopefully that's kosher.) Hi, Duke. How did you size the Jackson jacket/vest/pants? I just got the ensemble from Speedway and while I really dig the details and the fabric, it is VERY baggy. Shoulders on the jacket are perfect, as is the waist on the trousers, so I think I chose the right size, and I was expecting a full cut, but this is maybe a bit too full for my tastes. In the fit pics I've seen you post here, it looks like the suit fits you very well. Did you get everything tailored?

    Saddle Pants. I was alternating these with a pair of Stevenson Carmels (I'll post pics of those shortly) for about a year. So accounting for the (very) occasional no-jeans days, I would say 5 months of effective wear. I wash a bit less frequently than Broark and others on this thread (I think they've had maybe 3-4 washes altogether?), so these are a bit more contrasty than other OAs. Love these pants. Stitching in the crotch/butt is starting to rip, so I'll need to get a repair soon.

    Also seeing now that SS20 is now online. Liking the knits but not much else is catching my eye right now.

    I have this shirt and it is definitely black and fading to grey, not a so-dark-blue-it-looks-black. It doesn’t smell like rotten eggs, so it isn’t sulfur dyed. It’s something that fades like indigo but is black and not blue. Not sure how helpful this is in answering your question. I, too, would love to know more about how it is done.
