    Anyone have the recent Nativo Baja Parka in a XXL they aren't happy with? I was luck enough to snag a XL but it's a bit too snug for my liking. This thing is beautiful!

    Thanks fellas! I'm digging this coat a lot. Finally got around to wearing it tonight.

    New here. Thought I would share my first piece by LVC. I was a little hesitant straying from my favorite brands, but I am glad I did. This coat is amazing! I think LVC calls it the 3356 Sack Coat.

    I partially agree. I don't think that TFH measurements are wrong per say, but..... there is some questionable logic behind the shirt sizes. If a shirt is advertised as a 46. I expect the chest measurement to measure 23" across the chest or close to it. Not 21", not 22". But a legit 23". Logical I would think. It just doesn't work that way with TFH and other brands unfortunately. I'd give Rivet and Hide $400 right now for TFH's Diamond and Dots wabash shirt they carry. But TFH's size label that says 48, measures 45" across the chest. How is that a 48? What's the logic behind calling that shirt a 48? I'm a simple minded guy, so maybe I'm just slow,lol. Anyway, I don't want to beat a dead horse. I do love the TFH style and offerings. But I think anyone in my shoes that isn't a peewee and has some bulk pretty much can rule out certain brands (3sixteen also comes to mind), and that's unfortunate. I feel I'm a normal size dude at 6'1" 210 LBS. Or maybe I'm not a normal sized 45 year old?

    Yes! I feel the same way. I'm close to your size, 6'0" 210 lbs. I absolutely love TFH fabrics, I just wish they would accommodate guys like you and I who aren't male models with zero body fat. I've purchased 2 button downs from them, and I've taken both to the tailor to remove the taper they put in their shirts. Luckily they sew in the taper on the back of the shirt. It gives me that extra 1/2" at least to make it fit around my waist a little better. But I don't know if they taper all of their shirts that way. Can you define a "wide" shirt? 46 and 48 sizes are no longer going to be made I presume? That would be a shame, because I think Masayoshi Kobayashi is completely ignoring a whole lot of middle aged men who can afford his clothes but can't quite fit into them. Not all of us are "v" shaped athletes with no body fat. Rivet and Hide supplied a few shirts in 48 and they sold out of that size quickly. Me being one of the reasons why. Really I'm just venting. TFH is one of the coolest brands I've come across and the fact they can't accommodate most men sizes is confusing to me.
