Lovely jacket(s). Great alternative to the typical denim jackets we love. What size are you guys wearing? @Broark I think I'd be one size smaller than you?

I opted for 44 for mine, I think you’re probably right in saying you’d be a size down from me. I think they’d suit you well, wide shoulders and tapers a bit towards the bottom.

Yeah, looking at the size charts, a 42 would suite me well. 

I love all the colors, but if I had to rank them, for me they'd be 1) Mustard; 2) Olive; 3) Navy

^ Had an initial pang of regret over jumping on the original run of mustard once I saw they were going to be releasing more versions, but having now seen all of them I think I agree that the original's still the most versatile of the lot

Meanwhile, still on the fence about whether I might have been happier going a size up to 44…

I’m also wondering if I would have been better off sizing up to a 42

@heyson Judging by where the shoulders fall I’d say you sized perfectly.

Agreed, yours looks like it fits you great. It'll look better with higher-rise jeans, due to the short length, but beyond that you're golden.

thank you @unders and thank you @julian-wolf especially because you answered a lot of questions I had in regards to the fit.

I won't do a full photo dump because we already have plenty of photos thanks to @Broark

However, I do want to point out something that I think is pretty cool about this jacket that I am sure the other owners have noticed.

The fabric appears to crease up extremely quickly in a manner not completely dissimilar to my leather jackets, though much more quickly. In total, I've worn this jacket only around 8 hours so far, but it already has creased a lot in the arms. The pictures do not do them justice. Personally, I really like this. I will be interested to see how this continues to develop.

Also, the buckles are really cool and I am thrilled with the fit of this jacket.

With everyone working from home, myself included, I'm expecting a lot more activity around these parts.

Nothing can get through three layers of Cossack.  I'm down for the new Ooe OA02 mask.

for those that have the cossacks, how heavy is the fabric and how warm are they?  is this something that can be worn as it warms up a bit?

@Smallrod I don't know what the official weight on the moleskin is, but I think you could wear this jacket into the mid 60's to low 70's comfortably.

I actually wore mine comfortably yesterday, it was in the mid 60's to low 70's.
But yes, it is a winter jacket for Texas!

I have noticed that I need to size up a little more for leather jackets and additionally, Freewheelers leather jackets are a little smaller relatively than a lot of other brands.

You might be able to do a 38 due to the lengths. 

In terms of weather, I am hoping I can wear this thing into the upper 70s. It's not as breathable as denim, but it isn't too heavy and it's not brushed on the inside.

@dudewuttheheck I’d say in this instance the Cossack fits fairly big in the chest looking at the measurements given on Standard & Strange. How does that ‘moleskin’ feel? It looks heavily treated (sheared)

It certainly feels different than the Freewheelers moleskin pieces that I used to own. This one feels more like a normal cotton twill on the inside and then like a brushed material on the outside, almost like a very short velvet or flannel. 

Overall, this feels kind of like a thicker fabric version of my Freewheelers Docker shirt. 

I would be interested to hear what the other owners have to say on this.

What other FW moleskin did/do you have?

This is my first experience with anything moleskin, but I agree with the comparison to velvet. I think the sheen will wear off a bit with time.
