    LOL. I get them confused. Anyway, I’d be curious on your side by side. N-1 weather is coming soon. Looking forward to busting out my Pike.

    I run much colder than you. I haven’t taken my Pile off in 3 weeks.

    I’ve been wanting to try their heavy denim for a while now and this is one of the first jackets I’ve seen with numbers that will work for me.

    I'm waiting for an Aeroleather Coastal Command and an Amelia Earhart inspired jacket.

    Bfd,
    I went no pockets. Not only do I like the cleaner look of no pockets on my jean jackets but I also like the shorter body length on this one.

    As a Downton fan, I had been looking for a long coat. I found a lightly used full length one in a brown Harris Tweed today. Should go nicely with my darker brown fedora. With snow on the ground for the few next few months.....I don't know, it seems reasonable.

    I've just received this almost new FW Brakeman coat in canyon brown....IMO one of my best fitting and most comfy leather jackets.

    Rmc deck jacket arrived today. Here is a brief run down. I’ll try to highlight some of the things that may be of interest. I cannot speak to historical accuracy for either so I won’t compare but only say that RMC has a good reputation for such things and worn from 20 paces it would be hard for most to tell them apart. Both use a version of talon zips.

    Sizing: Pike runs s,m,l,xl where Rmc runs numbers. Numbers may allow you to dial in the fit more. My Pike is a small. The Rmc is a 36 which is usually considered a small. Rmc is a little longer (1” ish) and about 1” smaller in the chest. I’d say the rmc fits like a 36 and the pike. Would be a 37 if there was such a thing. Only real noticeable differents is in the width of the arms with the Rmc feeling considerably narrower. The sleeves may also be a littlle higher but it may be a trick of the width.

    Materials: Honestly if the whipcord came off of the same line I wouldn’t be surprised. I cannot tell the difference. The lining of the rmc is nicer than the pike. A ton nicer, no. Just softer. Keep in mind i received the rmc used and the lining may have settled and lost some of its itchyness. After 1year i am just now able to wear the pike with a T-shirt.

    Buttons and zippers a bit nicer on the rmc.

    Stitching. By TFL standards I’m pretty indifferent to stitching. I wouldn’t accept bad stitching but don’t differentiate between good and great. Again, the rmc appears a bit better.

    Verdict: Overall the RMC is a bit nicer of a jacket. Twice the price? No. If I were at the shop and could have the Rmc or the Pike and $400 worth of other merch I would take the latter.
