Reading through that thread it actually looks like the results vary, from a tiny bit of shrinkage or no shrinkage to a full size or two. Not something I'm anxious to try unless I get really stuck with the thing, though?

hey but you got it for cheap right so it doesn't matter i mean who cares if it doesn't fit properly
KJ, there's no chance you can shrink yours as much as you would need for it to look good. In order of precedence, you should:
1. Flip it for profit
2. Return it if possible
3. Sell it for marginal loss
4. Cut it up into pieces and practice your leatherworking skills
5. Give it to a homeless man on the street
6. Toss it in the garbage
7. Shrink it only to realize it still doesn't fit.
Sorry man. This one's a lost cause.
Yeah no worries I came to that conclusion about three seconds after making my original post, I just think the whole idea is sorta cool so posted the info for anyone interested
are we talking about the same thing? armpit went from 53-52.5cm
nvm I see circumference now
but still if the chest was 53cm the circumference was 166.42 and if the chest shrank to 52.5 then the circumference is 164.85. Giving 1.57 cm circumference shrink or .6" so its over half an inch.
Dude, it's measured flat - circumference is just the p2p*2
It may be time for you to put away the calculator
Think about how you take a pit to pit measurement, and it's relationship to the circumference of the piece. Unless you're suggesting that the jacket was cut for someone with a 60+" chest...
edit - Well I see you just had this cleared up
for some reason I was thinking it was like measuring the diameter
it's a wrap, I was wrong
didn't lane wash bus berger or whatever to positive results? I dunno...my skin only shrinks if I pop in the dyer after a shower. I don't recommend...
what is new screen name of lane? i always get confused.
wish i never sold mine
i got it and plasti dipped the silver buttons black
