    This needs to be diverted in private. Mr Zamb deserves the courtesy of privacy and nuance. He has far more to loose in these sorts of disputes. It's not fair

    I have discussed it in private for a long long time with him and I don't enjoy this conversation either. Hope this post is the last one regarding this case from either parties, be it me, Zam or any 3rd parties.

    Just to clarify I thought you were in the wrong. I wasn't agreeing with you

    And you may be insane

    just ordered the new relaxed lined biker (non leather) and the measurements i got for the sleeves didnt seem that bad , only a few inches more than my other jackets which are normally a bit short in the arms anyway so hoping i can make it work ....

    What's the "relaxed" part of the biker? Just pockets? The cut seems the same

    the measurements i got for a size 52 are -

    Pit to pit - 21.2” / 54cm
    Sleeve length (from the shoulder) - 29.1” / 74cm
    Jacket length (measured on the rear including collar) - 30.6” / 77.8cm

    seems to fit like most size 52 of other brands ive bought before so fingers crossed !

    ps its this one

    I'm going to ask you guys to take all personal beefs to PM.

    Me, I am getting a MA+ small wallet in oxblood for my birthday. My old card case holds a bunch of supplemental credit cards I never use, and I wanted something new and shiny (well, it's not that shiny, but still). Pics when it gets here.

    I sorta want one (and frankly, compared in CCP, they are even moderately priced), but the sizing is so hard. I vary between a size 52 and 54 in MA+ bikers, with some 52s being fitted with room to some 54s being nearly skin tight. btw, I am 5'11" and 175 lbs, with a true 40" chest. NOT A GIANT. Those things just fit small to tiny.

    thats why im hoping the new " relaxed " fit will work for me as im 6 foot , 90 kg with a 42 chest !

    from the sizing info i got it should just work out ok , if not its an easy return in the uk for me - and keeping my eye out for a 54 ...

    from what I've heard the m.a+ "relaxed" models are looser in the abdomen but still the same fit in the chest. I'm not crazy about the double layered design at the bottom of the relaxed fit jackets.

    Yes, new iterations of bikers doesn't have sleeves as long as a previous one and much more true to size than his old works.

    Now it's highly recommended to have a true to size item: both aviators and bikers.

    FWIW I wear a 46 in m.a+ jackets even though I wear a 42 in Carol leathers and 44 in his blazers. I wouldn't want the horse leather aviator (from last FW) I have any snugger, it's spot on already.

    Yes, last year it was more close to the previous one, mine biker is 50 while I am 48 too. I meant this year iteration, SS16.
