As promised, some quick fit pics. I literally took it out of the shipping box and put it on and got wife to take some photos. Excuse the crappy iPhone photos and the dress hanging in the background.

 

 

 

 

Lookin' good Peter...taking the contour out of the mid-section worked well for your body type!  Wear it, wear it, wear it...in one year this jacket is going to be even better!

i thought it was strange for them to tighten what was already a close shoulder fit on the junya. it does look like my arms are ready to explode out of the sleeves lol. but it really is not that bad. feels similar to wearing ro leathers, where the shoulders are tight, armholes are high, and chest close to the skin albeit less extreme. i could have went with a medium and probably be content with it as well. it just shows you how versatile the sizes are and that you don't need to try and get everything perfect.

The smaller shoulders in the Vanson Daredevil and the Aero Board Racer take the "moto" feeling away from the jackets and make them a bit more casual...

Woodland

Grey camo looks like it would be a cool liner for the Daredevil
post #1947 of 1950
would the collar gap eventually settle or is that simply a feature of the pattern

Yes, when the leather breaks in...

Rec'd my jacket 2 days ago (size small) and it feels like it's too small. My shoulders and chest area definitely feel really tight and this is only with a t-shirt on. Also like to mention that i can't really zip it up, or at least if i do i can't breath.  Tried wearing a dress shirt and it gets super tight, won't even try a hoodie.  Asking Carrie to exchange to a S/M.  What do you guys think?
