These Yang Li derbies are really nice.

COS and Weekday blush.gif

 

seems like there might be a sportcoat-version of the KKA-ish COS coat I posted a picture of a while ago, could be really cool if the fit is better than this seasons sportcoats

can someone help me figure out what my true jacket size is because I am apparently an idiot. I body measured my shoulders and chest, and got 18" and 40". I keep reading online trying to figure out what this means, and see things like "your chest measurement is your jacket size." This can't be right, can it? Isn't size 44 considered extra small and tiny? I was told when I got my TOJ that my jacket was roughly a 46 with longer sleeves, and it fits well, even a little tight in the chest.

Or am I just completely missing the point?

I think you may be mixing up suit size and Italian sizing. Example: 40 suit size=50 Italian. 42 suit=52 Italian.

In European sizing, your chest measurement is indeed your jacket size. In American sizing, it's basically 10 more. I.e., you're a 40 in EU sizes, and a 50 in US sizes.

Your 40" chest would in fact be your US suit jacket size, hence the 46 (36US) TOJ being snug. Usually you want to err on the side of snug for leathers though depending on style.

^^ so if for example a rick leather is posted with a 16" shoulder measurement, size 44 XS, is that eu or american size 44?


My confusion is basically stemming from a disparity in my being a size 50 by my chest measurement, and size 50 clothes posted online always having shoulder measurements which are far larger than my shoulders/shoulders on jackets I have that fit well. Is this just brands sizing things differently, or do I have a weird shoulder/chest size ratio?

^Euro 44, US 34

^^ why are there so many pancake places in pigeon forge and gatlinburg ?

somebody should jump on those marvielab i would if it weren't a touch too small for me...
post #82060 of 100297
You can't have to many pancake places, just like can never have to much bacon.

^ If you measure 18" shoulders and 40" chest, you're likely a size 40 in suit jackets (or a 50).  That's pretty standard/normal.  

 

I wouldn't say that translates to 1 to 1 for TOJ though...I would use their actual measurements listed for each size.  

post #82062 of 100297
Just got to figure out whether you're looking at US or Euro sizes. Rick and TOJ use the Euro scale.

To answer above question, eu 44
And to answer what size you are, I'd guess you're a large eu48
Lastly, unless we're actually talking about a suit-jacket, shoulder measurements honestly aren't that important.

Like, 0,5"+/- on a unstructured jacket won't matter much as long as everything else fits well

I'm confused frown.gif So, 40" chest measurement makes me a 40" in US suit jacket sizing, and a 50 in EU. But, I could potentially be a smaller size in leather jackets, which for most fashion brands will be sized in EU, due to a desired slimmer chest with the same shoulder measurement?

Yeah, I would do that. I was just using the TOJ as an example, I'm just trying to get an idea of what size casual blazers/leather jackets I might look for in varied brands, as many sellers on SZ/sufu tend to simply post, "jacket will fit a true 48" for example.
post #82065 of 100297
Right, like the 46 toj might be too tight, maybe you're more of a 48 or 50 in leathers. Obviously every brand is different though, usually best to try and get real measurements. My chest is actually 36.5" but my toj's are generally somewhere between a 44 and 46 cause I like them snug.
