Also I wonder if the rivets were coated in the first place to preserve that shinning patina. By the time most of us get our jeans, the rivets are already past this stage, have a darker patina.

I'm not so keen on that shirt Hollows (narrow stripe is the better version IMO tho') - but I do have the Baseball Groundskeeper Shirts which I think are great, especially the collar detailing which is very nicely done - might be a bigger step from the Skipper?
 
On the same theme, the Baseball shirt is a really terrific piece. The graphics might put some off, and usually that'd be the case for me although I think they work well in this instance, but the combination of fabrics (a lightweight flannel body x back satin placket and detailing) is inspired and the cut is perfect.

Agree with Duke. The baseball shirts are very nice.

Best FW shirt IMO though is the natural Joshua Tree. Just super cool and still classy. Been wearing it religiously all summer paired with what have to be FWs best short, the brown Donovan.

And if anyone knows the classics, it's the Duke!

Really enjoyed the pics of the 51s posted on Hoosier's blog (and reposted on the contest thread by Snake). Going to be a great contest.

Anyone have the Spokane shirt or Benjamin duster? Fit pics.

After spending the past couple of weeks going through this thread and the Freewheelers blog, I've realized that I should've been paying more attention to this brand

The shirt looks like it's based on the old DaVinci brand. They had collars like that.

Sorry to raise this again. Some kind soul has pointed me in the direction of a speed demon in 42.

The chest looks plenty big enough at 60 cm but I am wary after what other bros have warned me about on the waist. Is shrinkage something I should be wary of ?
