just purchased an A-2 from a SF member a while ago. and canceled my order on the black lamb QDR cause I couldn't wait another 8 weeks. so i am just checking if any members here will have one with a similar measurements for sale? note that i want a black lambskin QDR.

shoulders, front 16.9"
shoulders, back 17.7"
chest (pit-to-pit) 21.2"
midsection 20.2"
waist 17.7"
body length, front 23.7"
body length, back 26.0"
sleeve length, from shoulder 27.5"

I thought about it but in the end, just wanted to top it off with something like the usual gas mask flap; that pocket is designed to fit your cell phone, and slants down slightly on the inside so that it stays kinda nestled in there and you can feed your headphone cords out of it, so that is a plus.

Drew, my AE MA1 rocks and gets tons of wear, just one comment on cell phones. I put mine in the arm office but it is just a bit tight with the iphone 5 (fit the 4 perfectly). Not sure if your arm office scales with body size or not (I wear 52) but just an extra 0.5-1 cm would be awesome for the iPhone and wouldn't screw up your pattern too much. Love the jacket.

you can't wait eight weeks but you will post here hoping that someone will sell you a used one in exactly your size?

you're a fucking idiot

The waiting should be a rite of passage to own a ToJ.

One of the reasons I'm sure that most others don't come out with something like this, is because the fabric is really expensive. We have as much in this as a normal tailored suit jacket of good quality.

depending on where you live, you're not going to get that much wear out of a leather whether you get it in tomorrow or 8 weeks, and itll take much longer to wait around and find someone with exactly what you wanted for sale, at a price that you're willing to pay. only jackets that make sense getting off the BS are the stock options, if you happen to see your size when you're thinking about buying. otherwise why not get your MTM jacket for YOU, not save a couple weeks (which you wouldnt save in the end) and a couple bucks

That is a long time if you've already waited 8 weeks. Charly is it true that I have to wait this long too frown.gif
post #24566 of 41420
Well there is waiting and there is waiting (almost 6 months)

you're not allowed to ask about buying secondary market in this thread iirc. asking about buying toj jackets but toj not getting any money from it in this thread is kinda scummy.
