Pleased is an understatement when it comes to the fact that we're working with orSlow. They've been on our brand "bucket list" for a while, so when we had a chance to see the line live in New York a few years back...we knew it was only a matter of time. The brand is everything we love - vintage-inspired designs with a modern branding approach and quality at the forefront of their ethos. It's all in the name, as they're the antidote to modern fast fashion...they do things slowly!
Wow. This is simply lovely in person. The black is a really deep black that does its name proper justice. It has all the bells and whistles of a classic M-65 but without the epaulets. OrSlow loves this design because it matches a wider variety of styles. We couldn't agree more. This is the first time we've seen an M-65 in any other color than army green, and we couldn't be happier with it. It's a masterpiece from top to bottom. Funny enough, that's where you'll find the adjustable drawstrings. And, if you want to buy a liner to put in this baby in the future, the buttons are already in place to make that retrofit as easy as possible.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size (3) in this jacket. He went big to fit his large pants. It was quite roomy, and he could easily wear a size (2), but really liked the fit of (3). He personally bought the (3). Going up a size keeps the shoulders from getting too trim. He's our standard fit model at 5'10," 170lbs with a 40" chest.
