    On the stock jackets (ma1, toj0, etc), if you want Drews fit, you gotta be pretty damn skinny, jus sayin

    Yes, I send al my measurements to Charly and also said, that I don't want super skinny fit. Maybe the problem is also in my fitness lifestyle, cause I gained an inch in my shoulders and almost 2 in chestssince august. I will write Charly to size up to 52 with 48 lengths. But I am still afraid that sleeves will be very tight around biceps. :)

    If he's in Spain he'll be fine (I've been wearing my A-2 every day here), but yeah, anywhere farther north and it wouldn't be enough.

    Spain is a big ass country, so saying Spain is fine is a bit if a stretch, below Madrid your should be fine'ish, further not it will be cold.

    I would bring something waterproof.

    ^ Lamb? How has it aged? I'd like to keep my lamb TOJ MDR as well conditioned and "healthy" as possible (don't plan on wearing it in weather extremes). What should I do?

    My black lamb moto arrived...the leather on this one is beautiful and thick...jacket is amazingly put together, quality is very great.

    The pit-to-pit measurements and the midsection measurements ended up being off on it, though -around 0.4" and 0.6" too big, respectively. Not too much of a big deal, but it's kinda bugging me...I feel like it throws the proportions off (the midsection to waist proportion, especially).

    The waist is supposed to flare out a tiny bit from the midsection, about 0.5" seems about standard. Unfortunately due to the midsection on mine being too large, it is around the same measurement as (or ever so slightly larger than) the waist. I feel like it makes the jacket look a little "blocky" -kinda like a square from the midsection down. You can see what I mean in the second photo a bit better, because it's a little more front-on. It's most accentuated when looking at the jacket straight-on...

    Am I just being over the top or does it look like this to you guys too? I'm trying to decide if it's worth trying to get the midsection taken in a little bit...it kinda bugs me a little.

    Anyway, pics.

    You're not gonna match shoes to the medium whiskey exactly, and I'd not go on a goose chase to try. However, brown and tan shoes should coordinate well w/ the medium whiskey, and depending on how the color is, maybe even black shoes. I'd advise that you start shopping for the shoes once you get the jacket and get a feel for its in-person color. Stylistically, yeah, jodhpurs and combat boots are a sound idea.

    @flahertongs, the jacket is fine

    That jacket fit looks great and it would be a travesty if you let some tailor desecrate Drew's work over .4 of an inch.
