Well, I really suggest that you then would save up that little extra to buy MTM jacket directly from TOJ. 

 

If it helps, I've placed an order for a jacket that has basically a chest from size 50 and my chest/midsection are:

 

 

chest: 41.8 inch / 106 cm
midsection: 29.9 inch / 76 cm
 

Charly suggested 21.3" for chest but I decided to go with a little more room (21.9") in the chest area as I'm hopefully being able to work out once again and wanted to have a little more room there because of that. 

 
Really.. just email Charly and he'll sort it out for you. A lot less hassle than buying something that might fit you and then re-sell it if it doesn't. Of course, If you wan't something that is not being made by TOJ anymore, then it's a different situation. I'd suggest you would then buy rather a tad too big as you'll still be able to wear it opposed to a little too snug. (Might be slightly ironic that I say this as I'm atm waiting for 2010 bomber to arrive with 21" chest, but I really like that design and I'll just enjoy it as long it'll still fit me and then give it to some good home)

Previous-level question: What's the recommendation for shaping the collar on a calf CM? I remember something about soaking it in water, but I feel like I saw Drew post a different method later on.

Also, PSA to anyone getting a whiskey calf leather: Go with the sliver zips. They look awesome in a way that the gunmetal zips would not.

Thanks for rubbing it in! shog[1].gif

Probably a light soak and hang it depressed with rubber bands or something. The way I shape my calf MDR is just pop the back collar up and leave it on the hanger that way. It has helped a LOT, can't see why you couldn't do the same with the CM collar.

I think somewhere in the thread Drew recommends a water soak for lamb collar shaping and leather lotion for calf collar shaping

Show us the goods!

On my Calf CM, I applied some obenaufs leather oil and clipped it down.  After 24 hours and removing the clip, the collar stayed in the same position.  

 

If you want more of the roll that Drew had, he suggested using a giant rubber band.  

 

Either way, don't be gentle w/ it.

Hang it on collar zipped up when not in use; if you want to, use a rubber band of the right size to kind of hold the roll of the collar in place, around the middle of the collar's height. It should roll from the top of the collar to the tip like a flipped out woman's hairdo.

The collar band gives it a vertical anchor, to allow the collar itself to fall naturally and casually - molding is optional, and can be done by just pressing on the collar a bit, holding it in place when its hanging, or going all out and wetting it and molding it.

^ Thanks. shog[1].gif

Also found this by searching the thread for "rubber band":

(if lamb) and condition if calf, saturate it til it's floppy, then use a large rubber band like that which you get on a bunch of broccoli from the supermarket, or a hipster girls headband. Hang it zipped up, collar closed that way overnight or for a couple nights, refresh as necessary -It will keep the collar held in the middle with that reverse roll.

I think it was the conditioner vs. water thing that I couldn't remember.

Rest assured, the goods will be shown. I just gotta break this bad boy in a little first.

Damn I started drinking beers 3 hours ago when I started catching up with this thread from when I left for a month in Asia, early August. Pretty smashed now.

Anyway. I wanted to post those pictures of my 2010 lamb Moto which celebrated its 2nd bday in October or so, although it had to be sent back to Korea with a broken zip (I broke it again but fuck it), and came back 3 months afterwards. I also have one of the only blacked out 1st generation DR, need to take pictures of it, although it's appearance hasn't really changed much over the 3 years of ownership.

You dudes who ask about sizing advice for used TOJs on the secondary market - you can just ask the seller to measure the item in question. That's all up to you people, but of one has goods they want to sell then they are likely (well, not really, I don't know why but people can't be assed to spend 30 seconds actually measuring a tangible item) to oblige you for a sale. Don't do it in here, as we have nothing to do with the secondary market.
