Since I'm considering ordering a varsity before the cutoff , I've been revisiing the thread and my measurements and have that lingering feeling that I order a jacket that's too long: 5'7" ish 160 lbs. I'm pretty comfortable with most measurements since I'm built a bit thicker than some of you. 22.2"/24.5" Front/Back lengths just makes me uncomfortable shog[1].gif

I've seen 'bigger' dudes in the past but I'm having trouble digging up their posts or in the gallery. Anyone chime in with their experiences to help settle my paranoia?

Either it's a vocal minority that has their shipment lost in the queue, or I lucked out. Ordered a MDR a day or two after the announcement in June, got it two weeks ago in the mail. Haven't had a chance to take pics yet though.

Anyone here waiting for their order of the CWU-45? Based on lack of pics posted in this topic, seems like no one has received this model in a long time. I hope it is the next batch to get made (I ordered mid June).

That should be fine, you could probably even go a little longer depending on your preference. You want bombers to be longer than motos or riders due to the ribbing

I know I probably sounded like an asshole when I wrote that. But believe me, blowing tons of money on expensive clothes while being under weight 20-30 lbs. is not wise in the long run.

His weight is healthy for someone who is 5"2.

Now back to his original question, I don't think a Size 46 would fit him either. With those measurements, his chest is likely Size 36. He would need a Size 44 with Size 46 lengths to make it work and those are going to be hard to find.

Or he can gain some weight and search for a Stock 46 or Stock 48 which is much easier to find on the market place.

But I digress.

You sound like an asshole because you're being an asshole.

I dunno, TOJ1 with raglan sleeves was notoriously slim, especially in the shoulders, It's not out of the question that he could fit into a 48, at his height. It'll probably be a little relaxed, but would be nice volume.  

post #33940 of 44930
^ yeah. The raglan toj1 and bball run slim imo. High armholes and slim shoulders. I'm a typical 46 but more comfortably a 48 in those 2. In the leather I'm more of a 44/45.

Thanks for all the help.

What is your height and weight? Do you have any fit pics of the 48?

post #33942 of 44930
I'm 5'11 and 125ish give or take and I wear a 48 in the bball.

nobody has been posting about receiving a bomber lately (CWU or A2).  i ordered an A2 on june 12th so we're basically in the same boat.  hopefully we'll be in the next run of bombers.  i know i read in this thread somewhere that bombers are made separately from the other jackets (who knows if it's true tho as I can't find the post or remember who said it...)

Hm ok. Does the bball fit similar to the TOJ1 2011? Is it a stock 48?

If you ever hurt migsy's feelings, he will never ever forgive you and reject all attempts to make it up to him.


The difference is he said he sent many private emails asking about it and trying to resolve the issue and he just got short replies as he kept seeing people who ordered much later get the exact same jacket. It's only now that he's ranted on the forum that they really want to check if the jacket fell through the cracks and is even in production.

 

Edit: He made himself look like a complete cunt but there was a valid issue, he just went off talking about how he perceived their emails to be rude, and I agree with Iamacyborg on that issue.
