It's easier to do with a second set of hands though, so you don't end up with a cockeyed measurement (tape slips around the back, etc). Other measurements, like going across the back, or measuring sleeve length from the neck, etc, are rather tricky to do with one person. Not saying it can't be done, but if I'm dropping $700-800 on a jacket, why take the risk when I can just ask someone to help me out for a few minutes?

That would be so cool.

Did a search and there wasn't much consensus, maybe like 2-3 cases and some conflicting views. How does the lamb do in washes? I just picked up a grey MDR from another member and the elbows are too billowed out for me and further down than on my arms (short arms ftl). I was thinking about washing the whole thing to shrink it and then hang drying it to give it a nice drape. I woulda done it already if it was calf, but wasn't sure about the finer lamb. Or should I just warm/hot soak the arms?

On another note, how hard is it to shorten the arms? I thought it might be a bit difficult with the zipper and snap right there so I'm not sure if I should find a leather specialist or if a regular tailor will suffice.

Last note...first ToJ leather...it is niiiiceeee.

wouldn't wash it.

 

doesn't shrink.

leather isn't denim, you can't "unstretch" animal skin. you may as well just have the sleeves taken in, though the elbows will stretch so you may as well deal with it.

there's a world of difference between that and what this guy is trying to do. Obviously if you form wrinkles in something it will become slightly snugger, but if this guy's elbows have been stretched there's no way of undoing it.

Thanks for the reply guys, appreciate the straight forwardness and quickness.

Going through a bigger thought right now; debating if I want a 4-zip moto instead of the rider. Not sure if the MDR fits my aesthetic.
