I am an XXL in this.  Going live soon, you'll find out then....

The XXL is this seems better for me than the old 19oz XXL dims, so hopefully I'll be free when it goes live.

The shoulders seem pretty narrow on both the 142 & 142OD in comparison to other jackets of similar sizing. No doubt makes for extra trim fit but is there room for stretch?

Denim will always stretch where pressure is applied...Though because of the construction of the shoulder (felled seam), this will limit the fabrics ability to stretch as much as in non-stitched areas...

That’s reasonable.

It was more out of curiosity as I’ve noticed that the 526-14 is slim shouldered too so wondered why they measure up smaller than their ‘beefier’ counterparts.

Very tempted by this one. But I have 3 Type 3 Jackets and one Type 3 Vest.   ::)

If I started calling this one the "West Coast OD" and the 526Lod the "Midwest OD," would that maybe catch on?  I may just try anyways  :D

I'm similar, with 5 Type 3/101s and a Type 3 vest, but unless you have another OD, then it's only polite to buy one to get closer to completing the set.  Then you have the different weights of the same style to collect... :)

It landed today and I'm happier than I expected to be.  Sizing up was the wise thing and even the sleeves, though long, aren't long enough to need turning back.  The feel of the lighter jacket is very nice indeed and even my wife likes it from the off.  Once it loses the stiffness and wrinkles up a bit, it'll look even better.  I'm going to hammer this now and will see how quickly it develops.
