I just got hold of this beauty, and realized there isn’t a thread for it. Here are a few pics of some glorious details. Apologies for my horrible phoneograhy...

Great fit.  I was unaware of that jacket’s existence.  Great find!

Your fit looks great, too!  I'm so happy that it's finally cool enough to wear.

Very cool sabergirl! I am the previous owner of the jacket. It definitely fits you better than it did on me, and I'm glad it found a home where it will be worn and loved.

I don't post on forums much these days, but I wanted to share more details since I happened to come across your post.

When I originally bought the jacket in 2016, I DM'ed Giles for more details on the fabric. His reply is:
"It's sanforised and one washed.  Giles"

This is the listing from when I purchased it. Whatever wear there is on the jacket was done by previous owners and not me. :)

It is 21oz, as shown in the leather patch. I own a pair of 19oz Samurai S710XX, and I can confirm that the IH-7526j is noticeably heavier.

I never wore the 7526j as much as I initially planned as it's not cold enough where I live in California year-round.  I recently purchased this 13oz Momotaro Type II I've been searching for since I sold the 7526j. Its lower weight and lack of blanket-lining will make it more wearable for me. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Nice, [mention]Joog [/mention] . Thanks for the shout. My impression is there are very few of these out in the world. I love that it has a blanket lining, but doesn’t have a cord collar like others of this style.

Ideally I would have a 40 or maybe even 42, as this one is a bit snug for layering, but unless [mention]Paul9221 [/mention] decides he wants to part with his, there’s little chance of that.
