Am still trying to track down a sample/scrap of jungle cloth and a replacement Conmar zip. Anyone got any leads?

the picture is terrible but shows the fit.   Too big?  It fits fine but maybe I could go one smaller?

Yeah, a size down would probably look better.

that's what I"m thinking too.   Would you want this one?   It's a big 44 to 46 in size.   Worn for a picture.

Would love to take it off your hands, but can't afford it right now.  Unhappy Got the girlfriend's birthday a month away, and then Christmas after that.

Ishmael - Not sure you missed the post; I was stuck in "new member purgatory" for a few days and the post didn't show up until a few days after I submitted it.

Double0 - Cheers mate. Your N-1 looks great on you and appears to fit perfectly. I recall seeing that same pic a while back and it was part of the inspiration for wanting one of my own.

This is a terrible pic of the jacket but a decent one of the fit, so I thought I'd post it in case anybody else finds themselves in the same situation as me with the Freewheeler's N-1. This is a size Large. I am 6 feet tall, 185 lbs, and my chest measures a hair less than 42 inches. The chest of the jacket is 22.75 inches across and the shoulders are 18.75 (Hickoree's measurements match my own).



I'm not sure any of the N-1 style jackets will work for me afterall. I was looking at the blue RMC on BiG and the 42 appears to have the right measurements in the chest / length / arms but the shoulders are about the same size as the Freewheeler's and this was the dimension that seemed most troublesome for me. The 44 would likely be too big everywhere but the shoulders. In any case, BiG is out of the size 42.

I don't really want to gamble any more. The RMC is a bit more than I wanted to spend and paying $80 all-in to ship it back and forth a few times to get the right size will put me over the edge. I should have tried it on in person when I lived in NYC up until a few weeks ago...

Here's a down filled version with hooks from a company I've never heard of. Looks nice, but for that price I'd rather have something a bit more authentic:

Also saw that BiG is selling a Samurai, but as with most of their non-denim offerings I think it looks a little wonky.

okay, got rid of the XXL and ordered the XL.

Much better fit on me and sleeves aren't terrible either.  The pic is though…
