The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2422

post #36316 of 42075
just how fitted is the toj0 supposed to be?

bought an apc wool/leather varsity (a la toj0) in size L and it's very slim.

pulled it out of the box and figured they must have sent the wrong size given how small it looked. got it on, and was like a second skin. pretty limited range of motion, but 'fit' with arms at my side--sleeves creep up my arms if I extend my arms otherwise. base of the jacket falls just above my jeans in front, and a bit over top in the back--low rise, for ref.

my gut instinct was that it was too small, but tried it on tonight and wondering if that's actually the case. pics below.

Didn't you post elsewhere that you're a 44-45" chest? Why would you believe that that's a large? But yes, definitely looks too small. Really belongs in APC thread though.
post #36318 of 42075
yeah, take a large in most other stuff and they only had the L left in stock

Are you measuring inhaled or something? I just don't see how a 44 is ever a large in any reasonably sized brand.
post #36320 of 42075
obviously subjective, but tend to lean toward more fitted than more loose up top since I've got an 8-10" drop
post #36321 of 42075
wrong thread and too small

How long has it taken TOJ to get back to you guys after you send in measurements and confirm that you want to place an order? Not too sure what the next steps are, I'm guessing Charly will have some suggestions or whatever. Been about 3 hours now. I guess I'm impatient...but also it's Dec. 18 and they did say they're going to stop taking orders by the end of the year.

Lol, 3 hours...

 

Wait a bit, Charly will get back to you

It depends on the garment. I have around a 44" chest and I wear a large in T-shirts, sweaters, etc. However, my jackets, suits, and sport coats are larger as they aren't so stretchy.

He sent an email to Charly at 2 a.m. and then got worried when no reply.:rotflmao:

Sorry, I need to sleep sometimes other than when I'm not answering emails 16 hours a day satisfied.gif

He responds to your sizing questions between sets.
post #36329 of 42075
Your gut instinct is too small? Seriously, how fucking hard is it to realize you bought a jacket that is skin tight with zero range of motion that you need to come to the Internet to ask for a second opinion?

Use some common sense and this ain't the thread for it.
post #36330 of 42075

Gaiz, guys. Calm down, I realize I was way impatient. Take it as a reflection of how much I've wanted to do this, perhaps. Anyway, Charly's been delightful, the order's been placed, and now I'll go into hibernation until my toffee tan lambskin MDR arrives in...what, 4-5 months? 

 

Also, I get the impression not a whole lot of toffee tan lamb MDRs were made. If that's the case, happy to represent it!
