post #6542 of 11026

its actually .2"

Let's get this straight, you can't just divide cm's by 2 and get inches. It's 2.54cm=1in
I was selling some Junya jeans one time and I had all the measurements in cm. The leg opening was like 19.5cms and I cant tell you how many idiots PMd me asking how these slim jeans could have a 9" leg opening...

Reading through that thread it actually looks like the results vary, from a tiny bit of shrinkage or no shrinkage to a full size or two.  Not something I'm anxious to try unless I get really stuck with the thing, though?

also an update on my stooges: came out fantastic. was a size m, now it's definitely a size s, bordering on xs. perfect. wavy zips and all. only downside was that an old tear i had fixed opened back up - easy fix though, brought it back in and they're repairing it for no charge. can't wait to get it back in a few days.

I just washed my first ever Rick leather from 07 which was just a bit too big on me and zippers are now wavy indeed.
BUT, the fit is perfect. Can't believe I waited so long to do this. Washed at 50º and then put in the dryer for an hour. Perfect. I was worried about the silk lining, but even that turned out fine. Highly recommended.

pre-wash measurements:

pit to pit: 46.5 cm
length: 63 cm

 

 

anyway all in all quite happy with the outcome. leather turned out great, soft with not quite as much sheen (although I probably wouldn't recommend this for any of the heavily processed _7 leathers). jacket shrank around half a size in width although the length surprisingly didn't change at all. short of boiling the leather I think this is about the maximum shrinkage you're likely to get haha.

post-wash measurements:
pit to pit: 45 cm
length: 63 cm

hey but you got it for cheap right so it doesn't matter i mean who cares if it doesn't fit properly

KJ, there's no chance you can shrink yours as much as you would need for it to look good. In order of precedence, you should:

1. Flip it for profit
2. Return it if possible
3. Sell it for marginal loss
4. Cut it up into pieces and practice your leatherworking skills
5. Give it to a homeless man on the street
6. Toss it in the garbage
...
...
...
7. Shrink it only to realize it still doesn't fit.

Sorry man. This one's a lost cause.

Yeah no worries I came to that conclusion about three seconds after making my original post, I just think the whole idea is sorta cool so posted the info for anyone interested

are we talking about the same thing? armpit went from 53-52.5cm
edit:
nvm I see circumference now

edit2:
but still if the chest was 53cm the circumference was 166.42 and if the chest shrank to 52.5 then the circumference is 164.85. Giving 1.57 cm circumference shrink or .6" so its over half an inch. nod[1].gif

Dude, it's measured flat - circumference is just the p2p*2

It may be time for you to put away the calculator uhoh.gif

Think about how you take a pit to pit measurement, and it's relationship to the circumference of the piece. Unless you're suggesting that the jacket was cut for someone with a 60+" chest...

edit - Well I see you just had this cleared up smile.gif

shog[1].gif for some reason I was thinking it was like measuring the diameter

Not even sure if it's authentic, kind of wary of that zipper (looks shorter than usual) but damn I'd love to own one.
