    I had a 27oz type III from them. It is as insane. Felt like a fire hose. Hopefully I can report back soon. I ordered it almost two weeks ago and that was the time frame they gave for completion.

    Got my shipping notice for the Ramblin’ jacket. If I get mine first I’m going to feel like a real asshole. LOL.

    You may get the jacket AND flip it before anyone else too!

    .... Hit me up if you want to sell

    I look forward to it - and of course also to the Ramblin' jacket from Ship John :)

    I saw this post on IG with a picture of the sheath and it cracked me up. Case XX has been selling that pancake-style sheath for ever, it's an incredibly common style. I believe the sheath was made for a collab with Filson but Filson went with the same style sheath made by someone else. The Ship John shop seems to use high quality methods and materials so I don't know why all the huff about designs and supposed imitation is necessary.

    Ramblin Jacket..

    Overall Very positive 1st impressions

    a bit more chore coat than type III,
    Nicely constructed. I like the leather backed buttons.. no one will ever notice them but they’re cool

    I’ll soak it at some point to give the denim a little life and see if the length tightens up.

    That looks fantastic! Mine arrives Saturday barring any postal snafu. Length does look a bit longer? What’s yours measure in back? Same as stated on the site? I ordered a large, supposed to be 25.5” in back...

    According to the size chart the XXL should be 27", this one measures a hair longer than 28"..I think it'll tighten up once it gets wet.
    I actually don't think ill mind the added length, with all the pockets on the front a little extra length doesn't appear that out of whack

    I agree, the front config is more like a chore or work jacket anyway. Looks great man. Nice color too!

    Boyo,
    I love the color of the jacket in that photo that you posted taken in the sun. Has a very 1970s look to it, in a good way!

    Holy ship! It arrived early. I like it OK but just like Boyo’s mine is longer than the size chart indicated. A full 2” in fact. Stated size large was supposed to have a 25.5” back, mine measures in at 27.5”. It’s not a type III any means, it’s a chore coat. Not what I was expecting but it’s decent. Not very much shape to it. Cool details. Cool denim. Construction is immaculate. I’d like it more if it were blanket lined. Seems an oddball idea to have an unlined chore coat.

    IMHO were it the stated back length it would make a bit more sense or maybe ditch the waist tabs and just let it be what it is. Chore coat. I like the pocket config but I’m not crazy about the length. It seems all SJ jackets are longer...but this is a full 2” longer than the size chart specs.

    Looks good Ton!

    I soaked mine today.. visibly it looks smaller, I haven't tried it on again yet, I'll re-measure when its dry ( it turned the water pretty blue)
    if you decide to keep it, maybe a soak will bring the number in-line.

    I’m going to keep it. It’s too nice in its detail to sell. I’ll wear it this fall and into winter as much as I can and then give it a bath. It’s a great jacket. I just hoped it would be significantly shorter.

    ^^I think it looks quite nice on you Tony!

    If you think you would like it better lined - send it to Dena and ask her to install a nice flannel/wool liner. I think that would make it a lot more versitle, and looks like you have a bit of room in it for this. You would really have a one-off with that... :)

    A mostly dry jacket.. still wet at waist and cuffs. Areas under strain are likely to stretch back out ( chest & shoulders) sleeves and length won’t
    I hung it out to dry maybe more shrinkage to be had in clothes dryer

    Uh oh. Time for me to throw on the trunks get in the tub and set this ship to sail. Looks better post soak. I may chuck mine in the dryer when it’s half dry. Worry I may bugger up the shoulders though...
