    I was gonna say the same a little larger looking on you compared to your other jackets. Looks good to me though

  2. I agree with the others. Looks 'slightly' large. However, if you can't exchange it for the next size down, I wouldn't worry about it. I think after you wear it for awhile it will look even better.

    Thank you all for your honest feedback. This is actually an OTR Thedi from one of Thedi's stockists. I bought this one second hand from a guy who said he only worn it twice, and I think he actually did because the jacket is practically new.

    Just like my custom Thedi this jacket has a 'L' size tag. Since Thedi only adjusts sleeve- and body length I thought I could get away with OTR this time. But I think you guys are right, it is too large. Compared to what I usually wear: P2P+1' sleeve length+2' Body length +1'.

    What a bummer :( I love this jacket. Great design, top notch craftsmanship like always. It just doesn't fit.

    Although the jacket is new, it is second hand so there's no returning. I think his one will go to the classifieds tomorrow. If anybody is interested in a practically new Thedi for half the price, please let me know.

    Ptp 23'
    Shoulder 19'
    Sleeves: 27'
    Back: 25'
    Bottom hem: 21""

    Couple of more shots of the Gap Trucker I got from @JCSD. As many here said, Gap Trucker is a surprisingly nice jacket and a good value. The leather is not thin by any means, the jacket weighs 3.2 lbs.

    Maybe my eyes aren’t working quite right but I see absolutely nothing wrong with that fit. I suppose it comes down to how you want to wear it. If memory serves those canvas jackets aren’t lined, so a little more room for layers is mandatory. That is I suppose unless you want a jacket exclusively for warmer wear, like an unlined denim jacket.

    I think that's basically what it's about. I'm used to wearing my jackets short and I can't stand long sleeves. One could easily argue that I wear my sleeve too short.

    As you can see the differences with my custom thedi are minor. But it just doesn't feel right of you're used to wearing it differently.

    The jacket is lined by the way. Cotton drill. 1CFCC0BD-C4BD-4011-B560-76005FC21633.jpeg

    That jacket looks great but yes it's not the same perfect fit we normally see you with. Too bad it didn't work out. Good luck with sale

    Freewheelers Sunset now looks a little long with these super high rise TCB jeans. I may need a lower rise pair to fit with this jacket now.

    There were quite some lounge members interested in the Thedi, thank you all for your interest. I'm glad the jacket has found a new home with a fellow TFL member and I'm absolutely positive the jacket will look great on him.

    Loving this nylon Schott flight jacket. All the ease of a hoodie and the collar functioning as a built-in scarf is really convenient and cozy. Thought I’d share a more New Orleans vibe than usual with my background today (last pic best represents the color)
