    Don't you think that the jacket is too large on chest?

    No, if it is too tight you will look like 'drag queen'

    It is a bit too wide in the shoulders but still seems to fit acceptably. It's very hard to tell if you've got room in the chest though. Can't yu just try on the next size down ?

    I tried = it was better for shoulders, less confortable on chest and too tight on waist but it was a longer lenght (28 instead of 26) so i wasn't able to compare.

    The 42 = ok with jumper+shirt+fur lining
    Too loose with just a shirt or without the fur.

    The 40 = ok without the fur lining but a little tight with it. May be the leather will stretch with time?

    Ernest, you need to start working on loosing that gut. Other than that, the jacket looks fine.

    (jmswentworth @ April 01 2005,05:42) When did you last shave?
    My problem is not shaving but jacket.
    Perhaps it's both

    I think it's too big. Bike jackets are designed to be much wider across the back of the shoulders than across the front of the chest. With the jacket zipped all the way up like that, you should really only be able to move your arms (comfortably) from hanging down at your sides to streched out toward your handle bars. Then unzip your jacket when you get off your bike. (The smaller chest width makes it look better when it's unzipped, too).

    Fur lining? Maybe you don't ride a bike. In which case it looks fine.
