Either way I’d prefer if all the buttons were rusting instead of just one haha

The patina is probably more pronounced because the top button is exposed whereas the others aren’t - more or less what everyone has said.

@Duke Mantee Adorable wee one

Freewheelers bonnet??!

Thank you - that was 3 years ago - she was just over a kilo

No ... mamma crocheted it, but I believe Sushi ripped off the design for the forthcoming collection

Thank you - funny enough I was getting annoyed at the Duchess taking so many pics so I pulled the face ... and it stuck

Apart from what FW call their permanent product, nothing is ever ‘still in production’. So you have to get it that season or hope your size is still available at one of the retailers at a later point. The catalogue number is 1543098 - so that’s from 2015 ... there’s also a ‘vintage finish’ which is 1523017

Looks good on you @UkeNo! I’m hoping for a rerun someday.

Thanks guys - it’s as good as I’d hoped it would be.
It feels a tad long in the arms but I’m sure that due to the width of the cuffs. Definitely needed this size as the shoulder is spot on here. 
Really impressed with the heft of the fabric and the construction. 
My favourite feature is probably that the pockets inners are cut and sewn with the curved silhouette of an N1 pocket, meaning you can see that pressing through the face from behind. 
This is my first item from Freewheelers- very impressed by them.

Loving the recently released Army Utility shirt, #2123003 . This is sz 17. Great service from Hoosier, as always.

^ I rather like the Flight Engineer.. an eBay seller here had one up for a good while – and I bought a pair of the El Capitan climbing pants from him, come to think of it – but I felt that 16 would've been a stretch for me even though the measurements seemed acceptable. Now he's vanished without a trace. Please don't tell me it runs large due to its status as an overshirt...

Sir. Please.

:laugh2:


It is roomy on the chest and across the shoulders - I think I sit in the middle of FW sizes. Slim 17 shirts are fine, standard 17 shirts are great and oversized 17 shirts are comfortable with a tee or even another shirt wearing it as a lightweight jacket. I guess it just depends where you are in the spectrum ...

What’s this all about Duke? Are you at liberty to reveal it?

Aye - it’s a bit of stencil work for the S601XX ... something that shredwin’s granny is doing :wink:

There’s just a bit of decision making to do on colour, but that aside they should be looking like this ...

That’s a great shirt - I have the wabash ‘steel driver’ from the previous year - but they are completely different despite the name :blink:

I was a little hesitant once someone started bidding against me, but I still got it for a decent price.
I have one other popover shirt like this from YM Factory that's on the slim side.
This one being FW I have a good feeling that it'll fit like a charm.
