...here's one buttoned up. It's possible I could of went down a size but if I ever have to launder it I'll still be safe.

@vaquero357
first off, that thing is not my style but suits you perfectly. I love the look of the beach cloth and leather. It's like nothing I've seen before.

second, I think you would be safe to size down and still be able to layer, have a little less length in the body, and get more year round use out of it.

Take this as an uneducated opinion from across the twin cities metro area by a guy typing this in a pink jacket.

whatever you decide, that thing is badass

...thanks @Filthy @jordanscollected ! It is an oddity and according to sir Giles there's usually so few of the XXXXL size in anything produced right now that it's sure to be a 'rare oddity'! :o

...by the description of it it's supposed to be more fit and worn under a jacket, I know, but I'd hate to cover it up! It's too cool it needs to be hangin' it out there! :D

...there's a pocket for my pipe, for my tobacco, my lighter and maybe a monocle! ;D you know, for when I get old.

...and @jordanscollected I think of your jacket as a rose' or chablis or champagne...not pink! ???

I have the IHV-08 and it’s great but this one is really special. Those pockets truly set it all off!

I like that Haraki has fixed the issue with the shoulders bowing out in the front when it is fully buttoned. It’s my only quibble with the original but it’s too functional and easy to wear not to enjoy it. I could def see mine as always fitting in with my wardrobe in one way or another. I imagine you’ll find yours to be the same.

Be careful about washing it though, I think I remember a Beach Cloth jacket shrinking really dramatically after a hot wash? I dont think I’ve washed mine but maybe dry cleaned it?

...thanks @neph93! I'm sure the 'calf leather pockets' kicked up the price on this also but I doubt I'll ever see anything like this out on the mean streets! :o

The original vests were also “reassuringly expensive”, I think there are only a couple machines in the world capable of producing this beautiful material!

And Jordan, you can totally pull this off. I think it would fit your style pretty well!


I have to tell myself I dont need another one

@Anesthetist I think I'll just wear the hell out of it and relax it a bit. I won't be throwing this in the wash, not with the calf skin going on and I'm not positive but I don't believe 'dry cleaning' will help to shrink or tighten things up either, but all is well I think it feels/looks good! ;)
