post #14896 of 37396

I have rather large arms and fit into all the usual Italian makers pretty easily. (Attolini, Brioni, Boglioli, Canali, Corneliani, Cucinelli etc)

I cuff acc. to the shoes size/style/mass:    Chunky shoe = broader cuff and hem ::  sleek shoe = narrower cuff and hem.

Yeah, the bbgf I have is just about right, but going to be small by the time I'm done.

I'll check them out, but I think I'll have issues. I couldn't bend my elbows in the PRL db i tried. It might have been a slimmer fit though...

I went with the cheaper option....it all depends on your budget, RTC.

I do get a significant amount of sleeve ripples? wrinkles? if I bend my arms, but not much to be done about that 

 

BB Madison armholes are MASSIVE btw

I like what I have and I have no problems going used. I think I'll be a 42R by that time, so it should even out with the chest and the sleeves being wider. This is a 41R jacket. 

The drop will be more of an issue then, I think I'll stay around a 31-32 waist. 

 

Thanks!

I was pretty sad about those DB's today though. 60 bucks was an awesome deal for them. Oh welllzzzzz :/

Yeah, I get the ripples too, but that's not the biggest issue. I think the ripples at the sleeve/pit interface are because of lat flare.


The bbgf is a pretty good spot. I"ll check some of their other fits as well. 

Thanks!

Hammered bridal suite selfie with massive arm ripples. And the closest I've come to taking a fit pic

My arms are 17" in circumference - I have all of my jackets made for me. Not sure if there's many here in the same boat. I'm curious to know if there is though.
post #14905 of 37396
Mine are 17" circumference flexed. If yours are 17" relaxed... mirin hard.
post #14906 of 37396
Same here - around 17" flexed possibly a touch more

I'm unfortunately playing in that league as well. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've got 17" covered by a margin... :violin:

Are you guys still talking about arms, or are you boasting of other body parts now?
post #14909 of 37396
