Miracles can happen. Order placed this morning for a 32 with a 32.5" waist, 11.4" thigh.

Any idea why there will not be any more of these?

Email sent! I am hoping for a miracle, though...I would really need a pair that have been mislabelled. The 33" would be tight, a 32" with a large waist would be too tight in the thigh.

Argh! Missed the boat. And no restocks!

@Giles if you find a 33" hanging around, please drop me a line!

I completely adore my jacket. It has been worn almost daily since mid-August (it was unusable until then as it was so hot out) and I am starting to see the beginnings of fades on the elbows and some other parts.

Initially, I folded the cuffs back but I didn't like it and now I just have the sleeves at full length. They are about an inch and a half too long for me; my only gripe. This is an excellent jacket and I look forward to having it for decades.

Picked mine up today from having a crotch repair (third time!). I use Second Sunrise in Stockholm (used to be called Unionville) for my denim repairs. When I handed them in a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a cracking t-shirt there, but that is another story...

Anyway, here they are. Two years old, fairly heavy rotation in that time. Machine washed when they were dirty. They have been with me in the cold of a Swedish winter, the humidity of a Swedish summer, on business trips all over the place. They are exceptionally comfortable and soft. Highly recommended.  As the old clich√© goes, the photos don't do them justice. The fades are quite a bit more noticeable in real life.

Dude, that's awesome! Now imagine how cool it'll be when gets to where those jeans are now!

Thanks! The jeans have had four years of wear on them, so this will take some time!

Thank you, @Monitor !

This is not the full truth, though. Monitor was excellent the whole way through, paying promptly and letting me know when the jacket arrived. I, on the other hand, went on a 5-day business trip the day after he paid, came back from it ill and frankly took ages to send the jacket. I am ashamed of my behaviour. I should be more like Monitor, who fully deserves the moniker of a buying hero!

That is an excellent fit on you. I am super glad that it went to someone who will use it!

I shall take it out on a spin on the hog* this morning.


Not really. It's a 49cc moped.

It has arrived! And on a Sunday, no less.

The fit is very nice indeed. I have tried it on with a t-shirt, shirt and hoody underneath - it gets cold in Sweden, and this is the yardstick. If it is too tight for that, it can only be used in the short period of early autumn and mid/late spring. It fits perfectly in the shoulder and chest. The length is excellent.

The sleeves are a bit on the long side, though...even with a bit of movement upwards when the elbow creases come in, they are long and leave just the tips of my fingers peeking out.

Photos when I can!

I can only echo the comment about the IH-533 on you, @neph93 . That is a beautiful jacket and it looks great on you.

I sold mine just last week as it was too small. I can only hope that another run of them is done but in larger sizes.

Annoyingly, something went wrong at UPS's warehouse in Denmark last night and the jacket was not delivered today. It will be here by end of play on Tuesday. Another five days! I shall post photos.

With a t-shirt and an Iron Heart flannel shirt:
108cm chest
48cm shoulders

So, it looks like an XXL will be the right choice for my shoulders and will give a 3" clearance in the chest, much like my old Levi's jacket.

I shall give it a punt. With return postage at £16, not such a brutal fee to send it back if it does not fit.

That looks like a good fit, @GBurke

Thanks for the tips, too. I am trying to find a way around ordering two (or more!) sizes and sending one back. Postage is steep here. I cannot see another way around it, though, what with it not being possible to try on anything locally.

Or make a road trip out of it and pop down to one one the stores in Germany or soon Vienna @JimBobTTD  :)   I went last week and got to try on different sizes. Quite an adventure.

This is the kind of thing that I would have done in my younger days. The idea is still very tempting...
