Here's a photo from a customer Vanson Daredevil fitting this week!  The fit is great through the upper body, but he's going to need a taper of about 2-2.5 inches through the torso, down to the bottom hem, to get the right fit for his body type.  It's no problem to determine if a split-fit is necessary using the fit jacket process and it takes the guesswork out of measurements!  
Here are two blue leather samples that are going out to a customer receiving a Daredevil fit jacket!  These brighter colors would well with the standard black rayon lining or with the red tartan lining...   www.thurston-bros.com

Vanson Daredevil fit jackets are available for most sizes...just contact us at info@thurston-bros.com for help with sizing and to reserve your fit jacket!    The fits are coming through great on stock sizing...
