TIIIBSP2019-OD -  23oz Overdyed Indigo Modified Type III Jacket

An Iron Heart modified type III jacket, exclusive to Self Edge, made of unsanforised 23oz Indigo denim. This jacket has been overdyed black with a fugitive pigment dye which is an unstable and un-permanent dye that fades to later show the indigo denim underneath. Essentially this is a denim that begins black and fades to indigo in high friction areas, or what the Japanese call the "atari" fade.

S-XXXL

USD550

Was really tempted to grab this one during the sale, but opted for the SEXIH07IIIBK due to measurements

So it turns out that I grabbed one of these during the SE sale in an XL due to the measurements... Been wearing it for a couple of days to see how it drapes, but have come to the conclusion that it might be a bit too big for me. The shoulders are fine as well as the arm length and the room in the chest, but I'm concerned about the length. Should have done this earlier but I'll take some photos of me wearing it to get a second opinion. Shouldn't have been too eager to wear it (you live and you learn).

Edit: I've decided that there's no need to post fit pics because (1) I'm bad at doing them and (2) I've decided that the jacket is indeed too large for my size. Should be up in the B&S thread with all the required details. In the meantime, if you'd like to PM me any questions, please do!

Just some pics of the one that I have... I would say that even at this weight, the jacket is still very wearable; that is, the thickness of the seams don't cause any discomfort. The jacket is initially quite stiff so it can look a little awkward when sitting down with the middle buttons done up. I'm sure that with more wear, the fabric will soften and drape better. I like the stealth-like nature of the pockets (tonal stitching as opposed to contrast).
