I reach for the A2 whenever it gets cold, but my CWU-45 probably gets most of the wear. The A2's a nice jacket to surprise people with, and the CWU-45's great for that everyday kinda cool....

A mate from the forum snapped up this TOJ T1 however it is too big for him. As the T1 has always been on my radar he sent it to me knowing that it's larger than I would normally buy, but figured I may as well give it a crack as I am a better chance of fitting it than him.
The jacket is a 52-54 and I would normally wear a 48-50 based on measurements.
It has just arrived this morning and I took a couple of pictures after trying it on. I am considering making a few modifications to it seeing as the purchase price would allow for this and i'd still be significantly ahead of the typical second hand pricing of this jacket.
Pictures are deliberately lightened to show more detail. I'll try get more at home in better light.
Wearing the jacket, the issues I can feel are;
I think the body looks fine on that, man. as for the arms, to shorten them and have them taken in a bit is a pretty simple fix and shouldnt cost much. They would probably shorten them from the shoulder, so you could have the shoulders taken in a bit at that time as well if it really is an issue for you. all that said, the fit isnt bad at all. if you got it at a good price, you should keep it.
