this is probably the best explanation. sizing up probably won't help your situation. a shorter back length might be a solution, but i have no idea how that will affect the rest of the jacket. imo your jacket looks fine.

I'm beginning to see based on the fit pics that these jackets really aren't for everyone, if you aren't pretty slim or fit you'll end up looking a bit ridiculous and far from the aesthetic drew intended, just my opinion of course.

FWIW, I think AG's rider looks fine as well, nice aggressive fit

I think the riders look good on tapered builds, the shape of the collar just matches naturally

are you saying i am unaesthetic?! I agree with you on the most part. The pattern that TOJ uses is amazing on some, but not everyone.

Personally I think you have a shape well suited for the jacket. You're just a little muscular and seeing your shoulders in a jacket intended to have strong structured shoulders isn't good... and considering its calf even moreso. Roomier top imo is needed

I personally found the silver hardware to be a bit too "over the top." The MDR I'm currently waiting for is with gunmetal hardware. Once I receive it and the sizing is good (i shortened the sleeve length a bit and increased the chest as I started hitting the gym again) I will be pulling the trigger on a quilted moto.

 

I'm not sure if I should even mention this since this is a TOJ thread, but I also picked up a Schott NYC bomber during the long ass wait for my MDR and I gotta say, I have not yet experienced anything as nice as a TOJ leather jacket. Schott is good but TOJ is next level jawnz.

Nah man I'm not redface.gif

 

The best example I can think of is if drew offered a MTM option for something like raw denim. You'd undoubtedly have a large segment of people who cannot find anything in the market for them because of their odd proportions or they're under/over weight, whatever. This coupled with a misunderstanding of how complicated it is to produce a garment that is balanced in appearance results in what sometimes appears to be "bad" fits.

 

It wouldn't be at all a shock to me if this is indeed part of the (probably many) reasons why MTM is eventually going to disappear, not only do you have a very long wait but you sometimes have cannonballs trying to drape themselves in silk and rakes in armor. Drew has alluded to all of this before in a post but I don't really want to look for it.

 

Your jacket does look a little tight but it's really only noticeable when it's zipped. I don't know if it's because your asian and thus hold body fat differently but you look a little chubby, if it was me I'd personally just try to drop some lbs vs take a $100+ loss on B&S. None of this really matters if you're happy with your jacket, though.

Jawnz don't fit right? It's k drop 10 lbs better than losing $100 in B/S.

If you have wide hips and don't want a cropped jacket, you can also increase the length and the waist measurement, as I have done for my TOJs. It makes for a more relaxed fit if you like that aesthetic, though the effect of the fitted arms and shoulders is still "slim".
