    In my experience, the Premier is quite snug-fitting. Ditto the premier Highwayman. It's actually close to what a cafe-racer fit could be, just a touch more relaxed and longer of course.

    I’m 5’ 11” with a 40” chest. The original back length was 25” but after wear and breaking in it’s now 24 5/8”. As mentioned, this pattern is trim fitting, so not one if you want to layer.

    My new heavy steer 30's half belt is about 4oz. Carrie said the recent batch was the heaviest they have seen in a while. Works for me as I requested the heaviest from the batch. Impressive hide- no regrets.
    Same weight as the Lost World's 4oz + I have had new from Stuart.
