    I have a Ralph Lauren Barnstormer with shawl collar coming in. Saw it and even though the leather is nothing special and certainly artificially distressed, I couldn't resist. Will post pictures later.

    I am so glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks this way. I keep thinking I need another brown half belt just in case anything happens to my Freewheelers Caboose, even though it's my dream half belt.

    Thanks guys it sctuactushoukd be here today and I'll do my best to get as many pictures up within the week!

    It completes my dream Freewheelers trifecta

    Well the IH type III overdye arrived this afternoon and it is going right back. Although the numbers looked similar to the other denim jacket I have from them this one ended up being even tighter. Too tight for my liking so I’m sending it back for a return

    It’s a size 48 and the original listing had the sleeves measuring 23” which I took a shot at being incorrect, I haven’t remeasured but theres no way they’re 23”. it looks like someone went to town on the jacket with steel wool or sand paper .. I doubt this is OG patina.. but I’ll wear it.

    Sleeves or all around? I’ve found the sleeve diameter to be a real tricky spot with them. They cut them super slim.

    Sleeves are the one area that fit just fine. It is cut tight through the body without nearly as much “V” taper as the rider jacket I have. I can button it up completely and it looks alright, but I do not like a jacket that fits me like a button down shirt would.
    Ton, I know that you had their indigo serge work jacket at one point. What did you think of it? I am contemplating exchanging this one for that but not quite sure yet.

    TBH I didn’t like it at all. The body only tapered about 1” from the pits. It fit like a very nice denim bag. One thing I’ve learned is to send them my desired measurements and have them hand measure the available stock. They have always been happy to do so.

    I’m taking a look at the 3sixteen overdye at Self Edge. Measurements appear good, for me anyway, and the jacket is nicely executed

    I just received this beautiful jacket from @technovox !
    I believe it is a Ralphs-Pugh from the early 1940s.
    It will need a few repairs, but it fits great, and man-oh-man is it cool.
