Yep, there's modified and modified.

This turned out to be a little longer than we had planned for, but it is now what it is.... :)

Can we get a Sam sighting in this jacket?  Does he take a large?  (Sam's my personal new fit benchmark or one size smaller than Giles).  These numbers strike me as tight on the medium but MAYBE that is Sam's size if not the L?  TIA yo.

Now I think I know what all of you fellas look like.   Thanks for the help.  Now I gotta decide which one.  This slimming down thing has been expensive for me but I live in IH and a good fit is the story.

Any idea of a timeframe for a restock on this jacket?

Thank you Giles!   

Does anyone own both this jacket and the 526PJ?  I like a deep,  traditional indigo blue,  and I'm wondering if the 22oz might look more vintage/ traditional than the 21oz selvedge on the PJ?  I also love the brown weft on this one, but I've never seen this denim in person.

For reference, I have the 18oz IH-101J-SR, which has the deep indigo color I'm talking about.   I have a 526PJ that I just received,  but have not worn yet.   I am just trying to decide whether to keep it or send it back and wait for the restock on the 526J-22.

I'm not sure if they're different enough to justify having both.

The 22oz presents as somewhat darker and richer in colour than the 21oz, probably because of less post weave processing, and the brown weft. It drapes in a similar fashion and fades quicker.

Same denim as PIH10ANS?

@cooldude_abe

People tend to have different opinions about what a good fit should look like when it comes to type III jackets, so the important thing is what you think.

That said, I'll offer my opinion:

- Shoulders look spot on.

- Chest looks fine with it open but I'm guessing it is a bit tight when done up (this isn't necessarily a problem unless you intend to wear it with layers and/or in cool weather).

- It possibly looks a little bit short (but this particular jacket was designed to be that way, i.e. the traditional type III shape/fit).

- The arms look a tiny bit too long but I don't think it will cause you any problems as the 22oz material will soon crease and bunch up a bit, which should 'shorten' the sleeves by about an inch.

If you size up, I think the arms would be far too long. If you size down, it'll be too tight and too short. So you probably have the right size!
