Haha fair enough. Don't sleep on this one, folks!

Worn with 18 oz 555s with something like 2.5 years of wear, a 6.5 oz loopwheel tee, a Strike Gold indigo hoodie, and Quoddys in dire need of a resole. Sized as a medium, which is my most typical IH size, and I think it's pretty spot on. I'd be happy with a small through the body if not layering underneath, but sleeves and length wouldn't work out if I did.

Hahahahaha wait your post was edited. Did you mean the hoodie or the jacket? The jacket fit is great at true-to-size. The Strike Gold hoodie is a terrible fit. Lol Sized up, and still, sleeves are a little too short, and hood is so tiny that it pulls the whole thing a full inch above my shoulders. Would recommend the IH, but not the SG unless you have short arms and a very, very, very small head.  :D

@cander49 So sorry!  Yes I hit post and remembered that it's listed as a jacket instead of a hoodie.  I quickly made the change (under a minute), and you must have grabbed my original post for a quote.

Glad you enjoy the Burgundy Jacket.  It looks awesome on you!!

Haha yeah, it doesn't even say edited. I must have seen it very quickly! Hopefully I didn't confuse anyone with my original comment about the hoodie before clarifying.  :D :D :D

... I like that the cuffs are quite narrow, which will to keep the warmth in....

I haven't received mine yet, but am anxious about the short cuff.  I think I would have preferred the longer storm-type found on most other jackets, but I thought I'd give it a try and see how I like it.  I'm hoping to use it more as a hoody than a jacket, so let's see  :)

Good to know on the SG hoody. I've almost bought one a couple times based on the arm measurements on Self Edge, but I think they must be doing middle of neck to end of sleeve measuements!
On the Burgundy IH, wow! It looks great. The black is sold out in my size, but I'm digging this color. I have too much black anyway, and this would look good WITH black.
Also, your jeans look amazing. How long have you been wearing them?

I don't mean short, but that it's a small/slim cuff opening. I sometimes have issues with sleeves being too short (my arms are a bit longer than average for my height), but that's not an issue here. Unless you have really long arms, I think you'll be OK on the sleeve length.

I was leaning towards burgundy, and my wife said "no brainer, go burgundy" so I did, and I'm glad I did. I think it will look good with just about indigo or black. Haven't worn my black 555s recently, but that would be a good pairing, come to think of it. I got those indigo 18 Oz 555s in late Sept 2017 and wore them nearly everyday through November 2019, and then about 50% of the time from then until March. Since then, I've worn em maybe once or twice a week thanks to mostly working from home since then and barely ever bothering to put on anything other than ratty t-shirts and shorts for being at home. I guess it's about 2.5 years total wear and still only two washes somehow. They're due for a wash, but I need to patch a crotch hole in em first so they don't blow out.

No worries buddy, I understood what you meant by the slim sleeves.  I ordered and tried out the hoody/jacket, but the sleeves didn't work for me, had to send it back.  I have the opposite problem to you: my arms are shorter than average, so with a jacket sleeve length like this, I get little sleeve fat rolls near my wrist.

Damn fine color, hope it shows up again some other outerwear in the future.  Have you been wearing yours a lot?
