Default Any fat guys into denim jackets?

Sorry to disappoint any of our denim fetish chaps on line but I have just cocked up with an order from Levis in the USA. I tried a XXL last time I was over there and it was a tiny bit snug. So I ordered a XXXL and got giddy when it arrived today but its ****** huge so I must have lost a bit more weight than I thought

So I have a XXXL denim jacket up for grabs if there are any fat guys into denim jackets who wants one cheap

Agree but I have a Barbour jacket in the wardrobe and the rainfall in dxb doesnt justify that but it often does in the USA or Engerland

Were you planning on wearing the jeans and jacket at the same time, like a full on 80s denim suit?

Please tell me you also wear denim shirts too.

Do you have a denim fetish or do you class us lower than MAMILs?

MAMILs are the lowest form of middle aged man - especially when combined with gut, racing bike shoes and jelly ass pads. I respect the denim suit, and a CAMRA hat of course - just not too many badges please.

Default Re: Any fat guys into denim jackets?

I have to say new denim jackets are cheap and thin in comparison with the old ones that took some breaking in. I know no one gives a shit as you wouldn't be seen dead in one for one reason or another but I thought I would share it none the less

It's my mid life crisis and I'll be ****ed if I am wearing Lycra and cycling.

Double denim with a phone holster clipped to the belt.

Nice.

Denim jackets and trousers, baseball cap....you don`t work for KBR do you????? As an aside I was asked by one of their red neck employees if I knew what KBR stood for, I replied of course "Keep Bringing Retards".....he had to think about it for a while, by which time I was sauntering off!
