    Has anyone here handled the Real McCoy's Buco J-24 AND the J-24L and can speak to size differences, other than length? Online resources suggest there may be some differences in the body and shoulder, but I'd like to confirm.

    Thanks.

    There are differences but they are not huge. The differences are not vital unless you are looking for a tight fit but are in between sizes.
    I tried on my fd's size 38 J-24L before I bought my size 38 J-24. Both fit about the same at the time except of course the length.

    This is an interesting question, I personally have the regular J24 in size 40, normally a size 38-36 in everything else. I did see some differences in the sizing charts on Standard and Strange. The size 40 j24 had a shoulder to shoulder measurement of 17.5 , while the J24L in the same size had a shoulder to shoulder measurement of 16.5. It might be a typo but i will compare the two as i just purchased a J24L, just waiting on delivery.

    I have this from Gen at Standard & Strange:

    "Here are the main differences between the J-24 and J-24L:

    J-24:
    • Runs small
    • Standard shoulder width
    • Diamond zipper pulls
    • No back yoke
    • Shorter back length / square kidney panel
    • Not compatible with mouton collar option
    • Shorter sleeve length
    J-24L:
    • Runs true to size
    • Narrow shoulder width
    • Standard pull
    • Western back yoke
    • Longer back length / rounded kidney panel
    • Removable mouton collar option
    • Longer sleeve
    Now from personal experience with handling both of these jackets, I can honestly say that the difference in body and sleeve length should not be something to be fixed on since once jacket runs smaller and therefore requiring a size up resulting in pretty much the same body and sleeve length, if not marginal difference. With that said, this info will soon be obsolete as the fleet of J-24's that we are expecting to receive this Fall/Winter will be a newer edition of this model as the fit will be completely different with slight tweaks to aesthetic detail.

    It isn't in our grand designs to restock the J-24L in the near future as The Real McCoy's will not be producing this model this year, best guess is POSSIBLY Fall/Winter '22. This is because the new edition of the J-24 will now be compatible with a removable mouton collar option that will be sold separately. We're currently sold out of the older edition J-24 and I'd typically offer for us to special order but they have discontinued this edition."

    He noted the new J-24 is expected to be larger than the current and "closer to the original".

    Thank you for sharing!!! I was honestly worried about the sizing on the J24L. I thought the sizing on the regular j24 was a little too big for my liking hoping that the L would fit closer to the body. thank you for clearing it up! Now if anyone has a J24 in size 38 and would like to trade for a 40, let me know!
