The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1350

Thanks for the arm length info. I think I saw the original arm measurement of like 21" and thought my arms were freakishly long.

oh man, black 2010 DR or brown CWU45

I already have a black 2010 A2 but the CWU is so sweet that I can see my self wearing it in older age if I slightly lengthen the body and loosen the measurements up a bit in comparison to my A2 which is a bit more aggressive fitting and dior homo-ish. Not sure if they are too similar to justify a purchase - arm pocket, suede name patch and placket and I suppose I could go with a diff colour ie brown (burgandy red like one of the bombers posted a while back wouldve been pretty sweet though).

My 2010 bomber Measurements were
http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=4785
http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=6474

S2S front: 14.8"
S2S, back: 15.4"
P2P: 18.0"
mid: 17.0"
waist: 15.0"
front length: 20.0"
back length : 22.0"
sleeve length: 23.9"

Was thinking going more like this for my CWU45

S2S: 16.0 or 16.3
P2P: 19.0
Mid: 17.2
Waist: 17.6
Front length: 21.0
Back length: 23.0
Sleeve: 23.9

gotcha

i think i look over things when reading posts on my phone

Thanks again for the responses. Ghdv, I appreciate the comments. After remeasuring...I guess I just got kinda narrow shoulders and a wide chest. Definitely gained a few pounds in the past 12 months too. I'm confident in all of my body measurements except for my arm length which I botched somehow, but I think 25" will be good. Still can't believe I'm measuring 38" in my chest but iiwii. Asked for it to be relaxed, and err on the side of caution with fit. So gonna go with Charly's initial recommendation which I think looks pretty reasonable.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
shoulders 16.8"
chest (pit-to-pit) 20.7"
midsection 19.1"
waist 17.7"
body length, front 22.5"
body length, back 24.7"
sleeve length, from shoulder 25.0"
sleeve width @ pit 7.0"
sleeve width @ elbow 6.3"
sleeve width @ cuff 5.8"

If anyone happens to have actual measurements of the MA-1 Anniversary stock 46 (s2s,p2p,front length, arm length), I'd be grateful. Had it, and now only have a pic of me wearing it. Should have taken real measurements for my FS thread instead of being lazy and just linking the stock chart.. frown.gif

Don't post the size chart, it is only going to confuse people now. It is superseded by simple self-measurements.

CM, 4-zip MDR or 2010DR in medium brown FQHH ?

Need somthing hardwearing for F/W.

 

Also have a black lamb 3-zip MDR coming in.

post #20243 of 45073

MDR / DR in FQHH sounds like a disaster. It's better suited for lamb.

 

I would say maybe the A-2 or the CM is okay.

post #20244 of 45073

Seems like you're on two ends of the aggressiveness spectrum with the CM compared to the MDR and especially the 2010 DR.  The 2 or 4 zip moto would split the difference and probably look great.  From your choices I would go 4 zip MDR though, should look cool.  Don't do the collared moto, it really never looks good.

When are the next batch of jackets going to be shipped Drew? I'm pretty sure mine is on there!
post #20246 of 45073
totally fucked up with my waist measurements ( I measured my widest hip point). Too late to change now.

So I have the same measurement for my A2's midsection and waist (20.00'' for both - my waist actually measures 34.5'' and waist 37'' - I told Charly 38.75'' for waist !), which seems weird when I see all A2's waist measurement always being 1.5'' or so slimmer than midsection. Anyone has the same measurements for midsection and waist ? I am looking for a relaxed fit anyway, so I hope it will be good.

Nonsense. It's just fine in FQHH, absolutely no problem as far as design goes. Still, I don't recommend it unless you want what is essentially an armor jacket. I've got a FQHH DR and it's very thick and somewhat rigid even after a year. But it does look great and have gotten plenty of positive comments on it even from random strangers.

I don't think a DR in FQHH would be a disaster. Take a look at eternaldrakes. It's by far my favorite TOJ.

 

No FQHH for the A-2...

 

Charly reccommended the olive green calf for a DR with silver hardware. Sounds awesome, but I'm not sure I have the balls for it.

Mid brown or russet FQHH?
Do you have any pictures of the jacket broken in?

I think the old size chart had a midsection 1.5 inches bigger than the waist, and the new size chart has a midsection .5 inches smaller than the waist. This suggests that they've changed where they are measuring. Maybe it used to be at the bottom of the jacket, and now it's right above the ribbing.
