    I'm about the pull the trigger on this coat but am looking for some fit pics and fit feedback from anyone who owns it (hard to find pics of the collar). I understand the lining is a rayon, I was hoping for a light flannel, but I think that'll be fine. I'm in CA so I don't need a heavy coat and I'm mostly just looking for a three season jacket that I can wear to work casually and be also be my go-to jacket for a bit.

    Based on the numbers I've got it looks like either a 42 or 44 is going to be what I need, which is a little odd since I'm usually a 40, but I get that the RMC sizing can be a little all over the maps.

    Thanks!

    I’d give the guys at Standard and Strange a call to check on the sizing.

    I've owned a few RMC jackets and I can say as a rule they fit *slim*. I'm 43 chest, 6'1, and I take a minimum 44 in RMC, sometimes a 46.

    Such a cool jacket. @Robbie79 has one. Maybe he can share his specs and height/weight to help guide your decision. If I were hunting for an RMC, that jacket would be choice.

    The black RMC Deadwood jacket is my favorite Spring/Summer jacket as the horehide used for it is rather thin - thinner compared to my RMC A-1 and to other mid-weight horsehide jackets I know (Aero's Vicenza, RC + FW + GW Shinki) - perhaps similar to Himel or slightly thinner. Yes, RMC (Joe Mccoy) use rayon lining which I like a lot as it is easy to wear and comfortable. The Shinki they use is different to all others I know but really nice looking IMO and it has a shiny appearance. I would recommend to size up by at least one size or two in case you don't prefer a tight fitting jacket - I chose size 40 (e.g. Aero 38, GW 38, FW size 38 or 40) and I'm 174 cm, 73kg.
    Here are some pics which I recently posted - I decided not to take new pics today as it is simply too warm (almost 95F). I hope this helps - if you find the right size, I'm sure you won't regret the purchase!

    I looked up the RMC Deadwood - expecting a late 1800's western-style jacket a la the Deadwood TV series. Very surprised to see much more of a Starsky & Hutch 1970's vibe.

    Thanks for taking the time to provide some feedback!


    So, as I mentioned, I’m on the fence with a 42 and 44 but am leaning towards the 44 now based in the shoulder measurements alone. The PTP is okay on the 42 (almost ideal really) but the shoulders are 17 3/4 and I really like a minimum of 18, and 18.5 is fine, but not more (I’m 5”11” and 160lbs). Also, since it’s such a light jacket i would like the option to wear a hoodie or light sweater underneath during the cooler months (I’m in Northern California so it’s never super cold). That said, it’s mentally hard to commit to a 44 when I’m usually a solid 40 in other jackets, funny how that works. Unfortunately, with S&S this would be a custom order and the risk is mine.


    A couple questions on the leather they use if you don’t mind:

    • is it tea core?
    • does the shiney quality wear off, after it gets wet or can it be removed with rubbing alcohol (was be heard on some it’s a silicone top coat they gets applied during the processing and can be removed this way)
    • Since it’s a thinner leather is it going to shrink a little after it gets wet (this will also help me feel more confident sizing up to a 44)

    I think it's their East-West tribute?

    I'm not sure if it is tea core - at the first glance I would say not but this is difficult to say as I haven't worn it that often. I wore it while it was raining a couple of times but the shiney appearance hasn't changed/disappeared, yet. Sizing up to 44 makes sense to me after your explanations.
