I've actually owned both jackets in the OP and I'd recommend the Redford. It's slightly different and surprisingly warm. Definetly not a jacket for summer!

Here's a WAYWT post of me wearing it. I'm 5ft 10", 68kgs and wearing a small

How is that you have an S if you wear a 38? I have the same jacket size, and I couldn't fit in the S. I have doubts between the M and L. The M fits me fine but it's tight depending on what I wear underneath. The L fits the shoulders ok, and it's just a little bit loose in the chest and waist.

Are the used vintage jackets really more expensive than the brand new ones?

^well, if its like over 20 years old and still in mint condition as well as one of the made in england models...i guess so. of course, a jacket is only worth what someone actually pays for it. his is still for sale, maybe its not worth what he thinks. that's why you bargain right?

yes. the pre-itialian ones will be because they were made properly and not by a fashion house. beyond that they get more expensive with age more or less.

But this brand was not that expensive when was done in UK. So resellers are profiting from the italian popularity and price rise, despite declaring their opposition to it as a main argument to ask that much.

What size should i get if i for example normally wear euro 50 size jackets or coats, should i go with the medium?
post #69 of 82
Hey Rexor, if you wear a Euro 50, Med is too small. Get a Large.

Guys with Belstaffs (Waxed or Leather). Attached is a pic of my leather Elm. The belt is tied the way the lady who sold it to me tied it. When the hot Italian girl who works at the Belstaff Flagship store in Rome ties your belt. Leave it that way.[IMG][/IMG]

Seems right. I'm about a 34/36 and he's got ~20 lb on me so I don't see how a 38 correlating to a S is so weird (aren't smalls usually a 38?). I'm surprised it fits him so well though, didn't know Belstaff were cut that nicely.

38 is medium for sure. 34-36 is small. And 40 is large. (+10 for US sizes)

What about the sleeve length? Do these jackets have longer sleeves than needed, just to fit fine when ridding a bike (like the leather biker jackets)?

Off topic but I'm curious as to how sizing is in Europe. Is it like this (38 med, 40 large)? I'm a 40" chest and a lot of North American mediums are a little baggy on me.

Yes, 40 is large. In the US sizes use to be one letter less. L = M (US)

And I forgot to say, chinese sizes are even smaller.

US S = EU M = CH L

Does anyone know if there is a 'redford version' (i.e. quilted version) of the trialmaster (i.e. a longer jacket) out there?
