    Those Drew Keith stores on Styfo were legendary. This is a related tangent and not on topic for this thread, but I just did a quick search and I'm surprised not a single person has posted about TOJ's distant cousin - Falcon Garments.

    My jacket came today!

    You can't go wrong with either the black aniline or black teacore shinki

    I'm sure others can chime in with the difference with the RMC.

    1.1-1.3 mm would still be midweight. Not heavy as CXL, it will not stand on its own but still hefty enough that you need to break it in properly


    Congrats on your new FL cross zip! That looks like a wonderful fit, love the clean classic design. Can we possibly see the back of the jacket? Maybe also let out the side adjusters a little so the jacket silhouette can be better appreciated, I overdid mine too when I first got my jacket

    The side adjusters are actually completely loosen. Crappy back photo PXL_20210408_203924035.jpg

    Perfection! I love the clean design. This is the pigment dyed shinki right? I can almost smell those citrus undertones just by looking at the photo :) Congrats.

    congrats, leather and design looks clean, but if I'm being honest I see the jacket doesn't really fit your hip. maybe since it is brand new it may stretch a little or maybe fit you better on less bulky pants, or send it back to be cut a little shorter?

    I like the clean design but the bottom half of the jacket looks a bit weird to me. Hopefully it will get better when you break in.

    Nice jacket in cool configurations in an extraordinary leather. Without being a spoilsport, but as already mentioned, the jacket does not fit your physics in some places (upper arms, waist and back). I am sure that FL can fix these "flaws".

    I think it has to do with the back length. It looks to be about 27"? Because it's relatively long, it 'lands' on the hips.

    After checking the pictures again, I have to say good eye @Marc mndt... also the taper on the sleeve is huge... from arnold schwarzenegger dimension bizeps to a lady wrist...

    Unfortunately, this option wasn't available when I ordered mine. But I would definitely use that.

    It’s a bespoke extra - $100 and I’ll be going through my first jacket with Greg.
