I'd agree with this, I'm 5'11", 160 lbs and I have a stock 46. Fits slim but not tight. will get 48 lengths next time

Sorry about the dirty mirror.

Awesome! Thanks, good looks like it's a good size.

Please excuse the purple dress, just using the full length mirror happy.gif

First Impressions:
The quality is great, as expected. I really love how soft the body was and the color is just how I wanted it to be. The leather accents the medium grey nicely and I like how the horn toggle leather was much thicker and stronger than the pocket trim leather, the toggles will last long. YKK zipper looks rugged and dependable, although it sorta get stuck at the very top somehow...maybe it just needs to be broken in just a bit. Polyfill quilted lining does its job, much thinner than I imagined however...will definitely add good warmth when layered.

Fit:
Okay so I spoke with Charly, I think?, through the emails and we decided on a Large with 27 inch arms....I based the sizing off the fact that my size 50 TOJ1 was a bit tight in the chest, this one turned out much better in the chest. I am however not sure why the arms are around 28 inches, was it even altered? As such I had to fold the arm cuffs by an inch to get it to the right length. I also felt the arms could have been a "tad" slimmer but that is a minor issue since I intend to be wearing sweaters underneath.

Final thoughts:
A good second TOJ item for me and it will be a good addition to my wardrobe. I look forward to seeing what Drew, Charly, and Dan have to offer for Spring. I definitely have my eye on an A2 Bomber in brown in the future!

Sick coat but that hair...after being at university of waterloo for so long, I've developed a serious hatred for that style.

Thanks for the info guys.
The problem is that I'm eyeing a used one. Buying a brand new m2m is a pipe dream since after duties I would have to pay close to $1k, which I can't really justice.

Alright another VTG MDR update.

As i use this for my motorbike leathers, the tanning process could not be stopped as i'm doing a lot of riding in the summer sun. The stiffness makes the fit boxy, but it's loosening up with more wear, hopefully in 6 months the cardboard effect will have mostly vanished. I still haven't got it wet yet, but i'm inching to get water on it to see how it will react, guess i'll just wait for a rainy day...

The pics speak for themselves.

You won't have to pay any duties since they always mark the packages with a really low value.

Someone from a finnish fashion forum said that his jacket got stuck in the customs just a month ago and had to pay heaps. Pretty sure he posted about it in this thread too.
Plus I can get the used for almost half the price so I'd fancy that.

I'm the same shirt size. Indeed, 25" is probably what you want as a sleeve length (that's essentially size 47.) That's what I've got on my bomber, and I'm happy with it. Looking at the charts, yeah, I think you're probably a 47 for a bomber.

Dellath, that is crazy. My VTG CM went through an off white phase, and then a phase where it was a little pink from certain angles, and now it's kind of like milk with a little coffee splashed in it. But I have not been riding motorcycles in the sun in it, so...
