    WTB: WWII–1963 USN Peacoat – Size 38 – Shipping to UK/EU

    Hello fedora friends. After some deep reflection, I realise I can't quite squeeze into my size 36 USN Peacoat, dated from 1965. So, I'm in the market for a good condition size 38S or 38R (I'm 5ft"9), from the same era or before (I like the double cuff detailing). I'm of course already...

    Sizing on Swedish Military coats (“livpäls”, “militärpäls”)

    Thanks a bunch, @torfjord! Any recommendation on how to potentially clean one of these? The one I am looking at grabbing has a couple of markings.

    Sizing on Swedish Military coats (“livpäls”, “militärpäls”)

    Thanks! Would appreciate the help, @torfjord. What I am wondering is the sequencing of the size numbers, 0-4. Is 0 the largest or the smallest?

    Sizing on Swedish Military coats (“livpäls”, “militärpäls”)

    Hello! Wondering if anyone has experience with these? They have numbered sizing 1-4. An online seller with a size 3 says it’s an equivalent to a regular medium, but I find that hard to believe… Thanks!

    How to break in/distress new moleskin

    Hello loungers! I am wondering whether people have a recommendation for distressing new or deadstock moleskin pants, beyond “wearing them”? I have a pair of new army issue moleskin cargo pants in navy and would (hopefully) like to reduce the shine and give them a more broken in patina, as...

    Nothing particular right now, but if you have a list of future items I’d be keen to take a look.

    FS: Real McCoys N1 Deck Jacket 38

    I’m real keen, @breezer but I ca5 justify the new 25% import duties I’ll be charged through customs here to Denmark.

    Aero Wayfarer battered horsehide size 38.

    This is lovely, but not quite what I am after right now. Joakim! Let me know if you are planning to sell anything else soon. Looks like we’re similar sizing, and I’m just over the bridge in Denmark. /Luke

    Experience stitching a breast pocket into an N-1 Deck Jacket

    Hello friends! I’m looking at picking up a coveted Buzz Rickson N-1. I love everything about this jacket, minus the pretty inconvenient number of pockets. does anyone have experience stitching in an internal breast pocket here? Any tips on how to work around the piling? Any concerns about...

    Eastman A-2 Flight Jacket - sizing fit pics - 38 or 40?

    Good tip! Not quite sure how i would like it otherwise, but perhaps worth playing around with it.

    Eastman A-2 Flight Jacket - sizing fit pics - 38 or 40?

    Thanks guys! Looks like the snug 38 will be sticking around. I just need to lightly condition this old leather and I’ll be in business!

    Eastman A-2 Flight Jacket - sizing fit pics - 38 or 40?

    Fair point, but I should add the jacket is up to twenty years old (not sure if anyone can help date it more specifically?), so I was expecting that there shouldn’t be much more shrinkage. Additionally, the 38 does feel better in the body. Snug, but fitted. I found that there was way too much...

    Eastman A-2 Flight Jacket - sizing fit pics - 38 or 40?

    Here’s the 38 fit pics. Definitely more snug, and without the bagginess. What do people think? I tried this on only with a thin shirt. I could probably chuck on a light sweater in between.

    Eastman A-2 Flight Jacket - sizing fit pics - 38 or 40?

    I probably prefer the snug too, depending on the arm holes and length. I’m 180cm by the way, if anyone else sizing up for these is curious.

    Eastman A-2 Flight Jacket - sizing fit pics - 38 or 40?

    Moths - most probably. I have enquired with ELC about the replacements and will get them delivered once I determine which jacket to keep (I think the 38”s knits are in better shape).
