I think many people have the idea that FW are just ‘imagined’ designs to look like something from another era. In some ways that wouldn’t be the wrong way to consider the clothes, but the reality for many of their designs is that they come from an actual vintage design ...

This is the Curtiss coat from late 2013/early 2014 - FW label it as a 1920s design, the book (above) claims the coat is 1930s. I think both are corrrect

indeed, especially their leather jacket offerings are more like actual reproductions 

btw @Duke Mantee what's your take on the F/W 20 collection. Since its called 'dependables' its not really surprising to see many models returning but I'm left with a somewhat disappointed feeling; or perhaps last winter season was just too good

I'm eyeing that Brooklyn Spider Web type 2 jacket though B)

I've seen a few snippets here and there as well, I just wish they'd post recaps of the collections on the blog like they used to. :sad:

I’d say it’s quite a bit more than their leathers - and arguably the leathers I would suggest are improvements (Himel gives a great view on reproducing vintage styles)

With regard the upcoming, I’m glad to see a lot of the older designs brought back but the check shirt colours are an abomination. Anyway I’m unemployed and already have much of what I’ll ever want/need so either way I’m not fussed.

I’m much less into the stencilling and patches than you are (exceptions are made and generally the effort put into the t-shirt prints are above and beyond) so it’s not for me buddy.

What happens in the majority of cases is once you’re thought to be trusted then the dealer will probably send you lots of preview details ... you just need to buy more :tongue:

You could be a Freewheelers dealer with the collection that you have! I'll get there one day.

I think I've got a few pounds on you, don't think we'd be the same size. 
I still need to complete that order with Seiichiro once EMS shipping to the US resumes...maybe he'll have a few more 17.5 shirts in stock by then. :D

The new flannel color combinations are some of the worst I have seen from any brand.

I am told that this is only part 1 of the upcoming F/W collection. Part 2 will be next month.

Another - the Ironalls Lot 100 (but there are wabash and blanket lined variants too) from 2015

... and last one before bedtime - Pendleton style blanket coat from about a century ago and the British Columbia, the style and not the fabric pattern being important here although I’m sure I’ve got a pic of the original turquoise blanket (somewhere)

Hey guys, I’ve been really interested in a pair of 601xx 1951’s but have been unsure about sizing. Do you guys find freewheelers to be True to size? I need about a 34.5” waist however, all the measurements on Rakuten seem to vary from 33.5” to 35” for the waist. I’m leaning toward a 36 to be safe. Thanks!

About 34.5” is super accurate but I’d go for the 34 (I wear a 33 and my waist isn’t much smaller than yours)
