PSA - Buco J24 mouton collar - old/new fit

Hi TFL.

A very quick PSA for anyone with an old fit RMC J24 who may want a mouton collar.

As we know RMC sell a mouton collar for their new fit J24 (as a replacement for the J24L). I recently received an old fit J24 in sz46 which fits slimmer than the new fit J24 in sz44. I also have a corresponding mouton collar for the J24 in matching sz44.

The new fit 44 collar is a 99.9% fit for the old fit sz46. The snaps match exactly - and the collar wears up and down perfectly.

It looks like if you buy a collar a size down in the new fit it’ll likely be an ideal match for your old fit J24 jackets (ie 44 collar for a 46 jacket, 42 for 44 etc etc).

Hope that helps folks out!

Funny that they have a note saying "no it won't fit at all" lol, trying to upsell people on getting a new jacket I guess.

It’s not a perfect fit - to be fair they’re right that it’s a compromise … but it works well enough to be viable. Most importantly there is no strain on the snaps etc.

One final very important point though … jackets vary! And there have been multiple variations of the old fit too… so check in person if you can

Sure, but it's described as though the collar shape changed completely, which is not the case; seems like it's within margin of error.
