    Woa that sounds very heavy. I'm looking for a light weight jacket, but I love the longer-looser styles more than the 20s trim fit, and biker short slim tapered cut. I guess everyone loves Shinki, but it is still horsehide and by nature pretty heavy. I'm thinking of goat for my next jacket, but gonna have to get me some Shinki too. Where does it stop?

    I guess it stops when you run out of money?

    The RMC Shinki that I've seen has been quite lightweight. Lighter than the Aero vicenza for sure. RMC Shinki + cotton lining would be fine in east bay IMO. About as warm as a Levi jean jacket I think.

    That sounds perfect. I will look at RMC cuts. Do you recommend any in particular? Boy, they are pricey too, no?

    All depends on what you like or need, they are all super nice in their own way.

    Jonesy- a return trip to Standard and Strange is in order. They are the only RMC dealers in the Western US at the moment.

    They have very little on their web page. I need to go by and see.

    There used to be a Real McCoys store in NYC, but I understand it is gone. Too bad, it was fun going in there.

    Looks like there is a pretty big FMC store in London. They ship to the Us also.

    Doh, Desolation Row states they are all sold out of the Mulholland in a 40 -- guess it's not meant to be!

    Very nice jacket. Did you find out if it was true to size or if they are one size up

    Seems true to size, with the caveat of "if the numbers in your size don't work for you, moving up or down probably isn't going to either".

    Thank you. It is good to know
     
  15. The Freewheeler Brakeman is insane. If anyone finds out the size dimensions in English, please post. Tossing up between that and the Orgueil carcoat.
     
  16. Actually just checked the sizing and it does feel strange. Or just wrong for me. Long and short where I don’t want it to be.

    Did you actually try one on. Where does if feel wrong? I can't afford one anyway.

    if you like the Mulholland, you may want to look into Lewis Leathers Dominator or Corsair. i love that Mulholland and I just placed an order for a Lewis Corsair. all three of these jackets are so clean and timeless. for me, what made me pick Lewis is there's a retailer where i live and they can custom size.
     
  19. Arms too short and shoulders too wide.

    I think I'm going to place an order for an N-1 coat....
