    Is anyone aware of stores that sell the basic, loop-wheeled, "Glory Park" t-shirts? Self Edge is out of stock in my size. I'm maybe obsessed with them as I own several of them.

    Samurai Jeans

    Having just taken it out of its packaging to inspect, yep, it's a mouse pad.

    Samurai Jeans

    Would anyone like some Samurai paraphernalia that I got with my order from 2nd in Japan? They gave me a plaque (?; the size of a mousepad, I guess you put it in your car or something?), sticker, and handkerchief. Just cover the shipping and they're yours.

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Looks fine, particularly in the recent photos, in which you seem to fill out the jacket a bit more. Though I get the impression that the jacket is intended to fit close to the body, I think you made the right choice. I own the same jacket in 38 and it's tight in the chest and shoulders, but being short, a size up would have been too long, so I'm limited in what I can layer underneath. I'd like to find a jacket of a similar design and quality, but with a more relaxed fit, and that's proving to be difficult.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    Looking for a jacket similar in style to the Real McCoy's 1930's Steinbeck sports jacket, however, with relaxed, boxy fit. Per RMC's style, the armholes on the Steinbeck are high and the arm sleeves are tight, making the jacket feel restrictive. Sizing up is difficult because the length dimensions are already perfect. Any recommendations on other brands/jackets to consider?

    Has the quality of the William Gibson MA-1 declined in recent iterations? I purchased one about five years ago, prior to the introduction of the slender cut, and I recall being very impressed with the heft and hardware of the jacket. I ended up selling that jacket awhile back only to now purchase it again, new. Maybe my memory is failing me, but this newer jacket, while still very nice, doesn't feel as heavy-duty or substantial as I recall. Has anyone observed something similar? I would be glad to hear that I've actually gone a bit mad.
