I had one some time ago, a tight fit just like he wore it in the Great Escape.
Fabric felt light and was very light in color. Was not my cup of tea..

(don’t know if there is a Toys McCoy thread as it is a different brand)

I had been thinking about mail ordering but I guess it's better to wait till I have an opportunity to visit a brick and mortar shop.

Was a bit chilly this morning so I decided to give the chore jacket I got from McCoy’s it’s first wear



Was cool until it got to about 11 o’clock then the humidity was too much , our summer has been shit here in Belfast ... either raining cats and dogs or overcast and muggy

Here is a few pics of the jacket

Sorry if this is wrong place for my post. I'm considering either the McCoys or Freewheelers N-1 for winter outerware. Can anybody comment on the differents between them, the fit, construction, etc..?

Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

There’s a deck jacket thread somewhere. Can’t seem to find it atm.
First things I can think of:
Freewheelers: very nice and thick parrafin coated jungle cloth, a little bit shiny compared to other repro’s, roomier fit, colors are different than the originals. No talon branded zipper.
McCoys: the wool on the collar is less scratchy than originals and most repro’s, it is lined with a different type/color of wool than the body (very noticable in the khaki version). More modern slimmer cut, e.g. in sleeve hems and chest circumference. Talon zipper.
If you wanna go for an authentic n-1 get an original or a Buzz Rickson’s. If you wanna go for style get a McCoy or Freewheelers.
