    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 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!

    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.

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

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