    IMO your best jacket yet, you should get the natural version too!

    Can’t add anything that hasn’t been said already.

    On another note, if you keep shrinking me and you will be the same size!

    Yeah thats my one issue with it right now as well. I'm trying to shape it to cover the corduroy and hopefully it will stay put.

    Thanks! Definitely happy with the pattern.

    Haha thanks! I certainly would recommend it!

    Thanks! Yes it's a very easy to wear jacket isn't it? I'm wearing it today and I actually forgot I was wearing a leather jacket a couple of times. That never happens to me. I'm excited to see how warm of weather I can get away with it in.

    Thsnk you!
    Thanks I appreciate that! I try!
    Thanks! It's such a great place to visit. Hard to walk out without buying something though
    Thanks! I've been preferring shorter and shorter jackets lately so this suits me extremely well.


    Thanks! Yes it's an amazing store and the jacket suits me in every possible way which I'm very happy about. The Bodie has just been delivered so I'll take photos and get that up soon.

    Thanks I appreciate it!
    Thanks! I'm thrilled with the length
    Yeah I can't recommend it enough. It's quite unique. Never been to another store that's truly like it.

    Thanks! Very kind of you.
    Yes it definitely feels nice and light and wearable in warmer weather. I'll see how warm I can get away with haha.

    Yes it is a bit flat at first, but not dull. We'll see how it ages.

    Thanks! I think so too.
    Thanks! I agree. As of now it may fit me best. It's either this one or the RMC, but this one is shorter so I'd have to go with this for now. I think my style gravitated more towards 30s-40s items so this jacket, being a 30s-inspired design works well for me.

    Thank you!!
    Thats saying a lot, but it could well be. Well see how the Bodie fits. Yes this definitely has me considering the natural now.

    Very nice Dude! I pretty much agree with what everybody else has said already and I must add that I like the corduroy collar peeking through on the back.

    @dudewuttheheck that's great to know that you received your FW Bodie safely already and I hope it's a great fit.

    Anyone know if they ever offered this in brown? I've only ever seen the black and natty version.

    Awesome fit and I'd love to see more pics of the natural. I feel that jacket is right in your wheelhouse and I'm also considering it.

    Not as far as I've ever seen, no.

    That's too bad, i have the black campus jacket with the regular collar and I quite like the fit. I'll just wait a while to get the shawl collared version, hoping they offer it in brown someday.

    The Campus looks good, unfortunately they don't come up big enough for me.

    The Mister Freedom store is fantastic. Definitely worth a visit if you're in LA.

    Haha well at least my chest hasn't really shrunk at all yet. I'm working out enough to keep that the same size :D I'm hoping to shrink my waist some more though.

    Thanks! I'm thrilled with the fit.

    Thanks! I wouldn't mind that if the corduroy wasn't brown haha.
    I have not seen them do a standard brown version, but @jeo just proved that they have made them. I didn't expect them to ever do the black one though so they could do a brown one some day. The Bodie is as perfect of a fit as I could hope for! I'm giddy :D
    I did ask them to inform me about the restock of the natural so I can try it on and see how I like it.

    Nice pickup, glad to see a button jacket back in the collection. Really enjoyed the two fits you put together with this jacket

    Great find and fit! I think this one and the Ooe Yofukuten are my favourites so far. Enjoy!

    @dudewuttheheck i messaged the MF store to inquire but if they ever offer a brown one then I'll probably get one.

    Congrats on the Bodie!

    Really perfectly fitting, very nice jacket. Not much else to add. Just about as good as it can get.

    It's not always needed to bother with custom, anyway. Well tailored OTR jacket will fit just like this.

    Ah that's too bad. It is indeed a great store though!
    Yeah this is my first button leather jacket that actually fits me well so that's nice.
    Thanks! Yes my Ooe jackets are my favorite non-leather jackets by far.
    Thanks! It's definitely worth a visit.
    Thank you! I agree. I've now had better luck with off the rack jackets than custom in terms of fit.
    I had forgotten about this one! Good call!

    Nah don't worry I agree with you. They are a little too long. They just aren't so long that it bothers me. I can live with them just fine like this. The rest of the fit is so good that I can't mind.
