Anyone has the same measurements for midsection and waist ? I am looking for a relaxed fit anyway, so I hope it will be good.

My waist is 33" and hip is 34.5"
My A2 is 20" at Mid and 18.5" at waist.
I believe it is too tight on the waist for zip up.
I think you should be fine with that waist. It might be on the fitted side than relaxed.

Can you post a fit? Those are all my measurements.

4 zip man, 2 zip can look like a wetsuit, especially on bigger sizes. Need that extra visual kei. I will try to post pics of mine when I get the chance.

my waist is 31 and hips 37.5 and chest 38 -_- all kinds of fucked up. i'm kinda scared to order

Is that over your hip bones? Seems awfully wide.
post #20256 of 41456
hmmm i took a look at the toj site

midsection - 31
waist (over hip bone) - 34
hip (at widest point, over butt) - 37.5


i think it looks really awkward tho when the jacket is fitted to the waist, but the guy's legs and butt spills out aftewards kinda creating a

Yeah, don't go over your butt. Jackets don't go down that low. The hip bone is the place you're supposed to measure. Look at the website to see the exact spot.

Just saying, FQHH is very rigid (prior to break in), thick and heavy. You described it well, it's essentially armor with a utilitarian purpose. You see its application the most with A-2s (history) and Collared Motos.

 

DR, imo, just pairs better with lamb, fashion wise. Though this looks amazing:

Raindrop, that's my jacket. smile.gif

Another thing is that you really have to wear it a lot to keep it comfortable. I hadn't used mine all winter and when it got warm enough to wear it, it felt almost as stiff as when I first got it. After a day it got better and now is pretty comfy.

Do you have any pictures of the jacket broken in?

Burgundy russet. Sorry, no pics (there are some in the gallery when it was almost new). All that has happened is that the edges have lost some color as they've gotten scratched. Shows up as lighter colored areas. Overall it has gotten more texture to it at the back and sleeves, kind of reminds of waves in sand.

Does anyone know what I could use to restore color to some spots? One shoulder has gotten pretty scratched from a bag's strap and could look a bit better.

Love the shit out of my bomber. Gonna have to shelve it until fall but I'm fine with that. Fits like a dream.

Anyone know what animal this fur collar came from? It's really nice

All this fit talk has me nervous, though i provided tons of info (body + jacket measurements, pics, etc) and did some minor revisions when i measured something wrong, so I'm sure it will be fine when I try it on next week.

Anyone know when the new styles will be out? I'm interested of non leather jackets.
