Forgot to address it, but the guy unhappy with his TOJ1 fit - I gotta say, it should be fairly clear that if you're using a baseline jacket, you should feel free to adjust those measurements how you wish. If you submit measurements from a baseline jacket vis a vis, you're gonna get something that fits the same way but will likely be a different aesthetic. That said the poses seemed more awkward than the fit, the jacket seems ok. Not the end of the world at all.
I was first considering a 50 until I asked Charly what size equaled a large and he 52.

What size = large?

The TOJ1's run about a size small so a 52 equals about a large.
So I told Charly:

Damn, that was fast.
I am a 42R/L in a suit and 16.5 34/35 in dress shirts, would that 52 suffice?
I am looking at getting the Black on Black TOJ1 2011 with the solid black lining.
How early could I place my order?
Depends on how slim you want it to fit and where you carry most of your weight. If you have broad shoulders, you might wan to go with a 54.
At this point I had not even considered a 54. I figured he must think I bigger than I really am. Thats when I used the jacket measurements and gave him my measurements to show him my size. He still recommended a 54.

With this info can you advise me on what size I should go with. I would like it to fit slim.
I was considering 50 but not sure.
I just want my first TOJ to be a good experience.
Thanks in advance.
Here are pictures of me measuring the jacket and me wearing the Jacket
So, his 54 recommendation was before the jacket.

Seems like a stock 54 would be your best bet.
I was still worried about the sizing. So emailed him saying:

The measurements on the 54 scare me a lil bit. Scared it may be too big. Do they fit slim?
Saying I used the wrong jacket is a good copout but in this case Charly made his recommendation before the jacket was introduced.
I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.
