    that's a shame, because many of them with the skewed zippers are pretty difficult to zip shut :p

    I feel like the mini-me version of Otter.

    This guy is great if you don't like Rick sizing, going to do a mid-collar intarsia in dust next.

    looks too skinny to me, sleeves are disproportionate to your neck and trunk. There's a point where some people should not do the shrink-wrapped fit and rather balance their natural figure inside the jacket.

    those sleeves look perfect to me ._.

    maybe in the context of the rest of the jacket it's bad, but taken on their own i like them

    I'll echo the praise of cloonz's fit--awesome indeed.

    is it made by the same guy as malakas uses? I think malakas' jackets turn out well because he has a decent idea of the size he needs, plus has a body to fill it out. I don't really like the detailing on his authentic fakes, but that is to be expected for the price he pays.
    The one on cloonz is just comically stretched along the vertical plane though, I bet that thing is like 25-26" down the front of the zipper, maybe 27+ on the sleeve, but has the width of something like like an XS or maybe even smaller. To me, it represents a lot of what is bad about the idea of the 'styleforum fit' - ie the belief that shit has to be tight as fuck and shrink wrapped for it to 'fit properly' - this jacket has no proportion and looks strange.
