Ha! I just got one of those, too — you and I have a lot of crossover ;D

Looks great on you, man. What do you think of it? I love mine.

Yeah man I’ve been wearing mine around the house during the day in the AC so I can get a little action starting to happen with it. Really psyched to see how it breaks in, and dreaming of cooler weather!

So I swapped these 001XX for a size 32 and am beyond glad I did, what a perfect fit these are. The raw measurements were a little closer to 34" in the waist like RMC London's chart, vs S&S's at 33". They fit great raw so I was a little concerned about shrinkage, so I cold soaked — turns out that didn't really do anything at all, so I went ahead and gave em a hot soak. Some shrink, but also minimal, just tightened up everywhere they needed to (mostly top block). They're super comfortable and I'm stoked to wear em a lot. It should be noted that a lot of conversation online in various forums chalks up some of the ridiculous RMC shrink figures to a hot soak AND a trip through the dryer. EDIT looks like I already mentioned that back in the initial post about these, but I think definitely worth restating for anyone looking to buy a pair of RMCs.

Solid fit @popvulture and I dig the jacket (yours too @theorocks )--if I were to buy a leather jacket anytime soon it would be that style, single-breasted and sort of cafe racerish in the body but with lapels. It takes some of the motorcycle-ness out of it.

Long been an admirer of the Cassady shirt. The namesake is such an interesting figure who lived a remarkable life and they did a great tribute to him with that shirt.

@henry_david thanks so much man!!! Yeah the jacket is really killer, can't wait to get some character on it. I've got a Perfecto that I love, but I wanted another leather jacket for a little more toned down option.

lolol digging deep in the archives for that article, @popvulture  :D I love classic Onion (my fave of all time: https://www.theonion.com/temp-hides-fun-fulfilling-life-from-rest-of-office-1819566599).

I wish I were a leather jacket person, but I don't think that I am (or at least my wife tells me that I'm not  :'().

@theorocks, on the other hand, is most decidedly a leather jacket person. I like those button cuffs more than an elasticized cuff. I missed that detail on @popvulture's jacket, but I see that you both have the same EPIC jacket. Looking good.

Ha! People ask me why I wear Iron Heart and a sterling silver motorcycle chain if I don't ride. I always tell them because IH is high qual and that's it.

@mclaincausey missed your post earlier — thanks man! And yeah I feel like the non-motorcycleiness of it is kinda what I was going for, really feel like sometimes I don't wanna roll into a place looking like a Ramone (but then again, sometimes I do). And the Cassady shirt is for sure a great one — I've owned several and highly recommend em.

And @henry_david hahaha hell yes, that is fucking amazing... also is that TYONDAI BRAXTON FROM BATTLES?. I think The Onion is pulling some mega meta shit with that one.

@theorocks see, yours is really starting to get there! I need those arm wrinkles, man! I'd better up my at-home air-conditioned wearing habits, stat.
