(I wish there was an edit-function!) Oops, there was no cap-sleeve under the armour-panel. Sorry about that error in my review (and in this extra one). Derp. :-p Everything else still holds, though.
This one has a few kinks to work out in the design. The shoulder "armour" panel might be better if be mounted down to both sides of the hemming at the shoulder, as the edge tends to flip out from underneath when tugged by the straps going around the upper arm, and I think the cap-sleeve underneath could have been eliminated. The lacing up the back made for a really off-the-shoulder issue, too. I'm not particularly narrow-shouldered, but this top made me feel as if I was. No worries, I simply moved the lacing up the eyelets a bit and now it works better. Those cords have to go--they're flimsy and fray like crazy. I'm going to get some nice brown leather round-lace to replace them and to match the faux-leather armour and strapping. The fabric is soft, nicely-stretchy and looks amazing on. I'm a plump critter, and this piece slimmed me down without feeling tight at all (lots of stretch). The distressing looks more "dirty" than "worn", and not as smooth in coverage as in the photo, but I think an add-on of a bit of brown and bronze should fix that up. I'm not sure what type of paint was used, but the manufacturers might reconsider it--it's gritty and really should not have been black. A soft air-brushing with acrylic paint would have been perfect and stayed soft. Yup, a sweet top once the glitches are taken care of and will be awesome with some of my more apocalyptic clothing. The Oximoron bag from Punk Rave would be very cool with this shirt, too. :-)
