    Smart move. The OG's are way better. I really enjoyed wearing these.

    Right off the bat agree 100% with your comments.

    You see I’m that guy from 1990 that either couldn’t afford the Flight Suit or simply couldn’t get a hold of it in Australia.

    Since they have been reissuing these garments I have sourced both the Twist Jacket and The BC3 FUll Suit. I have bought the Jordan V Detachable Jacket but got rid of it as it didn’t have the Nike branding on it. That’s the thing with the jacket you mentioned, its pretty much exactly as I remember it back in the day, which means I want it even more now.

    Nike really has been hit and miss with the apparel. My personal preference is that the apparel is made exactly as it was back when it was made and that the apparel should be released to coincide with the OG release. This jacket and the remainder of the catalog should have also released with the BM5, just makes sense.

    Your info was helpful as I have been searching for this jacket in a 3XL which I now know doesn’t exist, so 2XL will do.

    The recent satin stuff is interesting but its not OG, if all fails will have to buy the Red Satin version as this is probably the best looking of the lot and it also has a little bit of a Michael Jackson feel about it.

    Anyway thanks for the info, really appreciate it and had to comment (rant).

    I have a question about the the sizing and way these fits. Both of my Air Force 1s are 9.5 and fit perfect. So I got the Metallic 5s recently in a 9.5. They fit snug when I try them on. Is this just because they are new? And will they break in? All my other shoes are 9.5.

    New 5s fit snug because of the extra padding. Wearing them should make them fit better

    Thanks bro. I was like man I did all this damn research and got a 9.5 and they fit real snug. Good to know they’ll break in. Didn’t want them to be uncomfortable.

    Managed to grab a pair of these today off of stock X for 220. Put a bid in like 2 weeks ago and forgot about it. Hopefully everything checks out and they go through. Was retail on these 200 or 220? Sold my 2000’s a couple years back, will be nice to own these again.

    If you like it, that's all that matters.

    But since you asked, I'm not a fan of those red laces. I prefer and use the OG black laces on mine...even wearing my pair today. :smile:

    Black laces and it's not even a debate in my opinion. 20190116_143336.jpg
