    Nice! Thats a perfect fit, nothing could be improved.
    You are inching closer and closer to that cross zip we all want to see you in...

    You beat me to it! LOL. Was thinking the exact same thing. @Superfluous , the jacket is superb and the fit is perfect! Reminds me of a modernized, slim fit cal Ventura. Nice!

    The pacific workwear jeans on his site look good, I wNt some. The price is equal to ironheart, is the quality equal as well?
    On another topic I looked at the motor boots you suggested an unfortunately they don't make my size, I believe the site said they made up to mens u.s. 9. Is that right? Or did I miss something. The boots look outstanding by the way

    Killer jacket/fit. I personally highly admire this pattern, it gives the same pleasure as looking at a Ferrari, or even better a beautiful curvy Victoria secret model.

    New to me Levi’s Burgundy denim. Ain’t super thick or perfect stitching but I loved the color. New Brixton Joe Strummer Collection “Know Your Rights” hat.

    With my Red Wing Blacksmiths in Black Prairie leather. A matching Black Prairie belt. Pure Blue Japan 14oz denim....About to go out bed/mattress shopping and it’s raining. So threw on my old USN mechanics jacket. Don’t really know what year but picked it up at the local Army/Navy Surplus and spoke to the owner a bit. It’s a generic mechanics jacket that the Navy supplied in the 80s and 90s. Similar ones were also used in the Canadian Navy.

    @Monitor, as promised here are the fit pics.
    It's weird, i have gotten more remarks about that vest than any of my leather jackets.
    Everybody i know calls it a "strong look" (whatever than means) and my GF hates it more than anythign else.
    I really like wearing it inside, it's like a leather jacket but you don't have to worry about arm dexterity and sleeves being in the way. Thanks a lot for that one, i look forward to wearing it when the weather gets warmer. (My GF doesn't)

    You can say that again; This thing brought me more (positive) comments than all of my jackets combined. Strange indeed but people seemed to have really liked it but then again, how could they not. I'm really happy you like it and yeah, the arm openings were completely covering my shoulders whereas it fits you just as it should - And it's a size 40!

    I'm surprised to hear she doesn't like it, it's a very good looking item on it's own. Not aggressively leather vest and it looks like a part of anything with sleeves you wear it over.

    Either case, I'm glad it's where it is suppose to be!

    His stuff is not as vanity sized as those brands. His size 31 has a 32" waist for example which means that most people with a 31" waist would actually buy a size 31.

    I mean, I'm not using them for work either, that's why I got rid of some of the "work" features. That said, I have a friend who works construction in raw denim, some pairs even with cotton constructional thread. The aging on his stuff is amazing.

    Wow! I know I'm obviously biased, but this is my favorite jacket on you of all time. It fits incredibly well IMO. How do you like it?

    It's better than Iron Heart. Nicer construction quality in my experience and the details are more thought out as well. Motor makes up to size 9h usually which equates to US 10.5. I am a size 10.5 on a brannock and fit into their 9h/9.5. However, with some of their newer releases they will be going up to US size 12.
