Thankyou Grant , not a bad buy then ??
Probably not as much as i would have liked too to be honest . Because of the fit ive teneded to shy away from it and stick with the cloth jacketsCarl,
Have you worn it much? My size 40 ELC monarch didn’t fit me that well at first. I just wore anyway. I beat the tar out of it by wearing in all types of weather. It does fit me very well now. Only thing I don’t like about it are the wrist knits. Apparently this is a trait of a lot of ELC A2s though.
when I first got my ELC Star (size 42) I was a little concerned. seemed tight. tight across my shoulders and short on the arms... I felt maybe I needed a 44. I knew it needed a break in period so I wore it inside (was august so too hot outside.). once the cooler season started I wore it to work almost every day doing deliveries and it didn't take long for it to relax and stretch out a tad... now it seems quite roomy. fits me well and is comfortable. I think the ELC horsehides need a lot of meat tenderizer lol! don't just wear it. do something in it to work it and flex it.Bit of a Catch 22 on my part to be honest .
Ive just been on the ELC site to check the size charts etc and its supposed to be the correct size . Maybe i just need to get it wet a bit and get it formed to my body shape ?
oh sorry lol! I misread. well, roomy is a good thing ain't it? hell I'd take roomy over tight.I think Carl’s jacket was a tad roomy?
Anyway. Yes I have found the ELC warhorse leather does conform really well and will shrink up a bit as will the threads.
Think of a leather work glove that fits better the more you use it.
