thanks man. I'd appreciate it.

I think I'll need a small as well. Probably order a black one with a few extra inches in length.

I was just going to ask sauce what his measurements were. I'm pretty sure Fok could comfortably wear the small and he is a 38/39, right? We wanted the fit a little more relaxed, but you can size down on this one if you want a slimmer fit. I am a 36 and that is our size small.

If you think I look bad in the picture, I can't wait for sauce's pics...

That is one of my designs. It was my first foray into discharging. For spring, we will attempt to have some limited t-shirt runs...

Just so you guys know, my business partner, Colby Backous is really the genious behind this line. All the basic designs are his. I just try to do provide him with everything he needs so he can just focus on design. When we decided to call it Michael J Krell, I was always embarressed because he does the designing. He wanted it this way though, and it's my name on the bills , so I don't feel weird anymore.

We were just going to call it krell, but there is a company called krell that makes high end audio equipment. Than we were going to call it michael krell, but someone else had michaelkrell.com, so it became michael j krell...

Yeah, the smalls will fit a 38-39 chest snug but comfortably through the chest, but you better have a 30" waist to go with that. A small was too small for a guy who is probably a true 40 chest, but with a 32-33" waist. Better go fora medium in that case. The knitwear fits tighter. I wear a medium, and it is snug through the chest, arms, and torso for me.

True waist or pant waist?

True waist. Maybe a 31. Def nothing over a 32, unless you like a snug waist on your jacket.

Fok and I seem to be almost exactly the same size in pretty much everything, so it should be good. I like the idea of the jacket as a relaxed-fit piece for spring and early fall, but since I'll be layering it for the next few months I figured I'd get one a bit slim... nothing (but finances) stopping me from purchasing a medium in Chocolate for the spring!

Oh sure, you've got cash to blow on a Thompson machine gun for a few hours but not enough to sartorially invest on another SF member? You make me sicker than watching a Manning commercial.

I'm not sure if the linen jacket fits the same as the first jacket what was sold here, but I'm thinking it is going to be way too small for you Sauce. I am a pretty normal 38 (6'1" 160 lbs) and the medium version of the first jacket is just a bit too tight for me, especially through the shoulders. Kind of annoying, because I think overall the large might look too big, especially with how short the jacket is cut, not sure though.

The shoulders are the only question, but I know the chest will be fine from the measurements. Most of my favorite-fitting items have chests that measure almost exactly that. I guess we'll find out!

Im sorry to hear that it is a bit tight in the shoulders. That jacket is cut a little more extreme in the shoulders than the linen jacket. I don't know what to say. Do the shoulders need to be wider or are the arm holes not big enough?

Colby, thought that jacket was always tight, but I could fit a shirt and hoodie underneath the size small and wear it alright. And the khaki jacket that I was wearing in the picture is actually slimmer than our current small in that jacket.

I think whodini is the same size as you. Maybe he can add the conversation...

Maybe we'll see what whodini has to say. I definitely still wear it and like it a lot though, although for some reason it has been in the 30's the past couple of days so there hasn't been too much use for that light of a jacket.

Maybe it is not the shoulders on second thought, they seem to fit ok. It seems to be more of an issue of not having enough space starting from under my armpits and going around my back. For instance, if I just fold/cross my arms casually, it pulls a little bit in the back, if you know what I mean. It might just be an issue specific to me.

Raley, so you have this jacket? If so, I'm 6', 160lbs which sounds an awful lot like you. The jacket fits like second skin on me (read: slim). Shoulders are the perfect width as the seam is exactly where my shoulders end. It does get a little tight in the back when I fold my arms (as can be seen in the rear shot towards the top of the jacket but notice the slack towards the bottom). Raising both arms straight does add a lot of stress on the shoulders to the point that I can't bring them fully straight. But I don't mind this at all because it's not that it's too small for me, rather that it's fitted. The arms feel a little tight around the elbows when I flex but then I do lift and don't mind the ladies seeing the guns (again, not a problem). Everyone has their own taste sartorially and maybe you'd be better off going up to a large. In my mind, though, a large on me would make it look a little bit more relaxed and loose like a generic medium. Aside from the minor glitches, it sounds you're still as much of a fan of the jacket as I am. What color did you end up going with?
post #44 of 5080
Yep, that is the one. It looks like it fits about exactly the same too, with the way you are describing folding your arms and lifting them. Like I said, I really like it and wear it a lot just maybe medium and a half would be a little better for me. I got it in a khaki sort of color.

Hey Raley. If you ever order any more outerwear from us, we will take this into consideration, and make sure that jacket will fit you the way you want it to fit...
