    Thanks @El Marro , I'm very happy with it. I feel like I've come to the end of a long road ;)

    Cheers, I think this as well. It’s old comp weight leather as well, sweet as.

    My Model E shipped today... it'll likely be delivered so that I'll have it when I return from work next Friday.

    I like that Winged Wheel patch.
    And I like his jacket which seems to be older and has some character.
    I’ve caught several older Langlitz now that are too much of a good thing (almost the same thing)! I’m thinking about what to release. Maybe I should start a thread on that...

    I can’t say I’m thrilled with the Model E I ended up with.
    It’s very new and very stiff and, maybe a bit too big even though it’s tagged 42 which is where I seem to land most of the time.
    Apologies for the late reply.
    I responded to your DM, answering your questions and explaining a bit of my feelings about my Model E.
    I hope you are happy and post pix.
    Cheers.

    No problem. I opened up the Model E on Friday, and it's too tight (size 40). I feel like it's much tighter than my size 38 Model B... which is broken in... but still. In theory they have the exact same 6.5" chest ease and I should have GAINED 2". It doesn't feel the case with the E, for me personally.


    I plan on returning it. You're welcome to slip it on if you think the 42 is too large. Perhaps we could swap? I'll be returning this weekend otherwise since I don't want Vanson to think I've been wearing it / testing it out. They are easy to work with for exchanges.

    Righteous! Great idea.
    I thought you were getting a 42, but I guess I couldn’t keep up who’s who with all the various posts of everyone.
    Interesting that your 38 feels looser than the 42. Did you try loosening the side laces? I tightened mine up a lot to try to get a more fitted, less boxy feel.
    Mine says 42.

    Let me know where and when we can meet to trade for a try-on.
    If neither works for either then I guess it’s back to the ether for both.
    Hopefully we learn something.
    Cheers.

    I got a 40, not a 42.

    What part of LA are you in again?

    West LA.
    Near Santa Monica, Century City, Marina del Rey

    ... there’s a Starbucks on the corner ...

    In case anybody's looking for one of these, might cruise by the Classifieds, as a 44 seems to be present there... :)
