    Fit Check: Buzz Rickson N-1 Non-Stenciled Demotex-ed

    Hey everybody, My Buzz Rickson N-1 arrived from HPA. I feel like the overall fit is solid for a N-1 jacket, but it does feel like the arm holes are digging into my armpits a bit. It's nothing that will make me hate the the jacket, but I'm curious about your thoughts on a) the overall fit, b) if...

    Does anyone have a Real McCoy AND a Buzz Rickson N-1?

    I have a Real McCoy's N-1 (2022 Khaki Plain) in size 38, but I'm leaning toward buying a Buzz Rickson N-1 in Navy. Comparing the two, it looks like a size 36 in the Buzz Rickson might be a similar fit to the McCoy's 38. Can anyone who has both brands offer a size comparison between the two? I'm...

    Gail (RIP) from Schott: her thoughts on fit and custom jackets

    Was just reading this on the Schott forum and it seemed interesting enough to post here as well as a tribute to her: Our employees, most have worked for Schott about 20 years before the first Schott Retail store was opened, personally this is my 38th year. It is easy when you have an actual...

    My new ELC A-2 fit pics

    Hi TFL team! i just received a new RoughWear 27752 A-2 from Eastman in the mail in a size 46. This was just to try on, as I know I’ll need to add 2” of length, but wanted to check the body size first. i love the way it fits in the shoulders, and also the chest seems to be enough room for a...

    Gibson and Barnes Air Force A-2 Sizing?

    Another fit thread! I just received my G&B Air Force A-2 dark brown goatskin in size 40R. Not the Civil version so this does not have any size entry or inside pockets. I initially ordered my usual size of 42R but returned it as it was too big. Sizing down one size is definitely the way to go...
