Subject: The Real McCoy's
Date Posted: 17 Feb 2013 at 12:00pm




I was really taken with The Real McCoy's after seeing a lot of their product in the flesh recently at Inspiration. Especially this B-10 jacket, which a friend bought during the crazy wholesale-price sale frenzy at the RMC booth on Sunday afternoon. I got to see him wearing this jacket the next day in the sun, and it really was an extraordinary sight. The cotton shell is a striking, difficult to describe shade when the sun hits it, very beautiful. The fit also seemed better than on any other b-10 I've seen.
 Any denimbros have experience with/ love for The Real McCoy's?

No experience with McCoy's, but if you're wanting a B-10, that's probably the best one on the market.  Don't know if you have experience with either jacket, but personally I found the B-15 to be a much easier wearing design than the B-10.  Not sure if McCoy's currently makes a B-15 or B-15A.  If they do, I'm sure it's fantastic.

It's a shame those show prices are nowhere near what the everyday prices are though. The sizing isn't a problem for a whippet like you mr r. but for us larger fellas it's a bummer that some of their best items aren't big enough. Can't argue with the quality though. I have a couple of the yearly catalogs that I drool over on a regular basis.

According to the NYT article on the Japanese integrating foreign things like coffee, denim, etc. and in the process improving and nipponizing them, TRMC's modus operandi is to take an original item and then shape it to their ideals. As opposed to for instance Buzz Rickson who I think are more or less 1:1 reproducers.

So I had that the Melton Wool Pea Coat by BR is a bit on the boxy site, while the RMC one is more fitted.

I haven't handled a RMC B-10 yet unfortunately but I've heard that they're a bit longer than the BR ones. That makes them very attractive to me.

I already like the BR ones very much, especially the Superior Togs, that I still have, but it's one or two inches two short for me in the back.

i had a RMC japan B-10 about a dozen years back. it was a Stagg Coat co. repro the same one reviewed on Acme Depot's website. i bought it from Richard when he was with McCoy's it was a nice jacket but didn't fit my needs and i needed the space so i sold it on ebay.

How so, on the b-10 vs. B-15- fit? The handwarmer pockets of the B-15 does seem more attractive...


Posted By: setterman
Date Posted: 17 Feb 2013 at 7:00pm
The B-15 is broader in the shoulders, has more natural curved arms, and has a more rounded shape to it vs the B-10 which is very square and straight.. The B-15 is less restrictive in spots, flows better with the human shape, and is a product of the AAF's experience with B-10. Things like the wider collar, hand warmer pockets, and two large inside pockets are all improvements over the B-10 too.

Which size do you have if I may ask?

They seem to fit pretty large. 

You look quite tall. How do you find the length of the B-10? 



Posted By: mr randal
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2013 at 8:21am
I was wondering about sizing myself. For the B-10 and also their sweatshirts. I'm 6', 170lbs, 40" chest & 32" waist.


Posted By: indigoeagle
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2013 at 8:31am

For BR B-10 in 42 the back length (from below the collar till the end of the hem) is 25.8 inches.

The knits are made from wool but still I don't find them warm enough. So with the knit on the waist being about 1.5 inches wide there's quite the area on my lower back that is not covered and leaving me cold quickly.




Posted By: setterman
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2013 at 8:32am
According to BiG's measurements you'd want a size 40 in the B-10 (you want at least 4" over measurement).  With your height, I'd be more concerned about sleeve length than anything.  Size 40 in 1944 was meant to be worn by a guy a few inches shorter than you.

Posted By: indigoeagle

Yes, that's my experience, too.

For comparison, the sleeve lenght on my BR B-10 is 25.6. Long enough for my long arms but should be shorter. Also the shoulders are quite generous with 19.7 inches, so it's ok.



Posted By: mr randal
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2013 at 9:08am
A 40 is what I was thinking too, after looking at the BIG site.

Tangentially, I cringe every time I see the tag line "a men's lifestyle store". Is there any sentence that is more capable of making you feel like a hipster? Or more like its the Twenty-naughts?


Posted By: mr randal
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2013 at 9:14am
Also thinking I'd be a L in the sweatshirts? They all seem snug according to the BIG measurements, I suppose they're meant to be worn tightly-fitted, at least at first?


Posted By: setterman
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2013 at 9:50am
the standard sweats look normal sized.  Medium measures 42", Large is 44.5".  Not sure who they intended the new, exclusive for BiG sweats.  An XL that doesn't even measure 42"..... are you kidding me?

You need to size up on the new RMC military sweats i take a size med in JMC B/Park for a perfect snug fit but a Lg in the military it fits a 38" chest. Its not exclusive to BIG either superdenim in the UK stocks them. There is also 3-5% shrinkage on both the B/Park and Military.
I am 5"11 160lbs 32" waist 38" chest.

Mr Randall, regarding the b-10 Stag. i am 5.11, 175lbs my chest measures 40. I wear a size 40 in the B-10 and it fits me perfectly. Its one of the best fitting jackets I own. I'll take a fit picture.

Sad to say I'm looking to sell the wabash workshirt I picked up at Inspiration. It's damn rad, but I've realized there are other things I need to prioritize with that money. Just looking to recoup the $120 I spent (wholesale price), plus shipping.

I just took a couple quick photos this morning, but can get measurements this evening if anyone requests. It's a pretty true size small (though with a boxier work-shirt fit). It is unsanforized so will shrink a bit if/when soaked. I wore it twice and have not soaked it.

I know rationing and rationalisation took place during WW2, hence the details we all understand on period repros, but why the wonkiness, if indeed that is also correct? Was common sense and eyesight rationed too? Or were the people sewing perhaps not the regular machinists and using substandard machines in worse than normal conditions, all due to the war? Hopefully someone can enlighten me.

Nice pair by the way Double Oh.

here's a vintage pair compare to.

The belt loops seem the be the biggest exaggeration, but I think McCoy's does that on most of their jeans.

When you see them from the side the loops do not look as extreme as they do in the pic above,
Possibly due to them being on the fold of the denim.

great pair 00, hope the sizing works out for you.

looking at the  vintage pair of Levi's  the so called wonkyness seems to be a correct vintage inspired detail, that pair looks to be sewn together in a pretty crooked way too.
i like it though.

What is the difference between the Real Mccoy military sweatshirts and the Joe McCoy Ballpark sweatshirts?
 Aside from sizing.


Posted By: Double 0 Soul
Date Posted: 08 Mar 2013 at 1:43am
The B-park is thick and heavy winter weight, The rmc is 10oz summer weight. That coupled with sizing are the only real difference. Even if you size up in the rmc it is still slightly shorter in the body and a slimmer cut. Build quality of both is exceptional.

Date Posted: 15 Mar 2013 at 4:17pm
Thank, double 0. 
I am mostly wanting something to wear under jackets as an extra layer, and as my jackets tend towards the trim, cropped side, shorter and slimmer works well.

Date Posted: 20 Mar 2013 at 4:10pm



A Real McCoy's MA-1 I picked up for a song on Ebay. 
I went with a size 38, though I am a 40, as they seemed roomy and I wanted a more fitted body.
I like the body width, but are the sleeves too short?
Honest opinions appreciated.

mr randal, the fit on the MA-1 is nails. The nice thing about the nylon flight jackets is there range of looks. From the more traditional trimmer fit like that to the looser fit favored by some with hip hop influence. Would love to get together some time and compare the quality and materials of your McCoy's MA-1 with my Buzz B-15C.
I'm also after an MA-1, N-2B and N-3B but I think I want early originals of these not repros, if possible.


Posted By: Dr_Heech
Date Posted: 20 Mar 2013 at 10:12pm
If you like a little length in the arm in your jacket sizing (e.g. I like a 25" shoulder to cuff/18" armpit to sleeve) you may want look at repro's.  I've owned a Skyline N-3b and a CH Masland N-3a and both measured something like 17" armpit to cuff.  I cant vouch for the N-2's though.


Posted By: Maynard Fried-San
Date Posted: 21 Mar 2013 at 12:32am
Mr Randal, the fit looks good when your arms are by your side but do those sleeves ride up much when you move.

On another note, please don't cut your hair shorter and wear some DMs and braces with that outfit or you'll look like an English skinhead from the 1970s!

The Real McCoy's Stagg B-10 fit on the large side, just as the original Stagg B-10's. Mine is a size 40 (size 42 is my usual size). Next to the Eastman Rough Wear B-10 it's decent repro IMHO.

Very good fit IMHO.

You wouldn't want the shoulders wider nor the sleeves or front length any longer.

How is the length of the RMC Stagg B-10? Also a bit longer than the standard ones?

Do you wear your B-10 mostly in winter or also in milder temperatures?

Personally, I've always thought that the skinhead silhouette is one of the better ones amongst uniformed subcultures (we'll leave the dodgy political views out of it). As I was a teenage Psychobilly who used to associate with skins, we all wore boots, jeans and MA-1's and I guess I've never really lost the liking for that look.

I'm old but not quite old enough to have been around the first wave. I'm talking the early 80's, in provincial England. We were definitely the freaks and weirdos of my home town. The Punks, Goths, Skins and us Psychobillies used to all hang together. This was for safety in numbers to avoid being harassed and assaulted by Squadies and Sailors.

Spot on. You knew instantly what music someone listened to and what group they alligned themselves with at 20 paces.

Now- it's just a generic youth look with the odd exception. It gives me a bit of a lift when I see a youth happy to stand out as being different, and doing it with conviction.

Saying that- it's made me very judgemental of people purely by their dress which probably isn't the best of character traits.

I hung out with a bunch of Skinheads as a youngster and none had politics of any sort!

There was a Greek,Sri Lankan and an Irish one in the mix.

Did anyone pick up stuff from that Independence sale?
I have a 8 hour & a green twist chambray on the way.

The sale is still on, + 25% off on the RMC deck jacket and leather A-2.

I didn't see any RMC stuff on their site.

The RMC stuff isn't on their site, although it's in stock, so you need to call them first.

Just received the Lot 406 Wabash shirt today.

It's made from some pretty hefty twill and exquisitely constructed. I believe it's the same one that dkatz bought and sold to rayw44 a while back.

The fit is fantastic, but I notice that the shirt is raw. Can anyone comment on how much shrinkage is to be expected with a soak or wash?

Coincidentally, I have the 406 and gave it a warm machine wash and air dried it on Friday. It did shrink a little. Mine is labeled 16, maybe shrank to a 15.5?

I wish they had my size in the green twist chambray, such a lovely shirt. I called a week and a half ago after I didn't hear back from email and maybe a 17 left the shop already, I know Timothy was inundated with inquires.

As for the 8-hour it's the same one as I had on at Denimbruin (khaki herringbone).

I picked up the wabash since I do not own a wabash shirt and it looked quite hefty and mean.

I noticed after a couple washes the RMC stuff if Raw, shrinks about a tag sized, that's why I didn't risk picking up the 16 green twist chambray.

Just sitting here waiting for a wabash shirt to shrink too small for one of you, and just right for me.

Is eBay seller mogoraug39 new to selling real McCoys or have I just missed it before? He seems to have a huge stock in multiple sizes, but at about 40% over US retail after VAT, I don't see him moving much product...
