I'm considering a pair of these but in the low 34" range, like 34.4" which would work best for me.

@Giles I’ll keep it there if it won’t hurt anything.

You can push it back through with a pin but use an eye loupe to get a good look at where it's coming through.  That's what I've done before without a problem.

I just tried mine on and they're tight, like Tuco "tight."  Tight.  But I'll persevere because I'm born-again hard.

Yes, there was some twist in the right arm but not the kind of twist like a pair of jeans.

I'm between a Medium and a Large and I bought a Large 526L and shrunk it down to a Medium, but this was with strong agitation and very hot water. All of the measurements are those of a Medium size from length and chest, etc.  It can be done!

Currently toying between one of these after a few helpful emails with Alex or waiting for the 526PJ that’s due out in March (526 with pockets + 1 inch extra length)  ::)

What sort of shrinkage have people seen in the length, sleeve and chest? As Giles suggested (0.5” all over)?

I’ve just returned a Medium 526Lod as I wasn’t completely in love with the surface finish (personal taste) but the dimensions on that were spot on if a little snug in the chest. Chatting with Alex he advised going for Medium 526L and soaking it would be the best port of call so I’m looking to see what sort of shrink you guys have gotten?

I recently received a pair of these in 33" from Rivet and Hide as basically a pair to hold onto because I like the material so much.  The waist measures 34.5" and since they're "lightly sanforized," might stretch past 34.5" post soak.

My 34" pair has begun to fade because I was wearing them so much even in the summer.  What's my point?  I don't actually have one.

Just saw G’s previous post about everyone wanting one now, us humans are so hard to please.  :D

My advice is to get the N1 deck jacket because it’s lined. The outer shell seems really windproof so do that and don’t regret.

The winter has arrived here.  It's about 26F or as you over there would say, -4C and the snow we've been getting every other day has made this a terrific warm coat to wear.  I am very warm and comfortable and the fabric has begun to loosen up as the shoulders were a bit tight but are getting much better and allowing freedom of movement.  yay!

I'll try to stop by soon.
Have there been any robberies lately?

Should I be sad that these jeans are Endangered? 

These are my favorite jeans!  Especially after traveling in them through New Zealand and Fiji for three weeks, the whiskers have developed nicely along with a stench that wafts from a few feet away . . .

Let's go Astros.

That's all I wanted to say.

There should be a remake.  I'm sure there's something, on a list somewhere, with something like this, in mind.

Next stop, LA.

So long as the Nationals don't win anything.

@manufc10 Are you from Arizona?  I was there in late June when the heat was 117F. Ridiculous heat. It hurt.
I’d like to see the Diamondbacks in the WS and hey, I was cheering for them over the God damned Yankees in 2001. I liked Gonzalez’s hit and talked to him briefly at a bar in Citizens’ Bank Park. He thought I was nuts.
