I take a small in the gramicci, and a size 1 in the new yorkers if thats any help. The gramicci just cut do run shorter, but that suits me.

Anyone have the RM leather down vest and able to help with sizing?

I wear a M in the M65 and a large in RM sweats/hoodies/Ts.

I wouldn’t be wearing the down vest over a jacket. The most substantial thing I’d wear it over would be a hoodie or a sweat.

I’m thinking a 40 would be good but a 42 is also a maybe…

Anyone got experience with Bronson MFG? Any good?
Can only really see proper repro nerds discussing elsewhere online.

I always regret when I cheap out on stuff, but the price of this is really tempting given Real Mccoys are so ridiculous…

The M65 and deck jackets look decent.

Working Title in Norwich are a UK stockist of Bronson so might be worth contacting for anything specific. Easier than ordering direct.

Nice, sent them a DM to see if they'll stock.

Edit: not planned, but looking into it.

Also sent Olderbest a message, they seem to maybe be London-based…but also maybe ship from China.

You have probably seen this thread, but sharing as it's slightly less repro-nerd centric than some of the darker corners of the menswear message boards.

https://supertalk.superfuture.com/topic/157410-unknown-non-japanese-brands/

I don't see why Japanese or USA brands (which often aren't all fully made in JP or USA) should have a monopoly in making clothes in this style.

Bob Dong though Laughing out loud

^^ same. like the look of the M65 and can't stretch to the Real Mccoys version.

An M65 is something that is relatively easy to find vintage or surplus though?

Yeah, but not 1st type ones - prefer the colour and lack of epaulettes.

Levis.com now has the Japanese denim type one jacket in a small for £120, bargain.
Also the Katakana limited jeans which are lovely but overpriced for £272 in 30/34 (half price)

Anyone washed their m65? Much shrinkage? Real McCoys website I think used to say on the sizing bit about shrinkage but they took it off. Would like a little bit of shrinkage hopefully but not at the chest or shoulders. arms and length would be good a little.

I’ve washed mine on the washing machine. It wasn’t a particularly hot wash. Minimal shrinkage tbh.
