    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    as an aside, i have found that shoulder measurement is the most flexible measurement, as there are many many ways to cut a shoulder, and the seam can fall on different parts of the shoulder and still look great depending on the cut. all my shirts and jackets have various different shoulders measurements, varying up to probably an inch and a half.

    i find that the waist and chest measurements are much more fixed, as your waist and chest are the size that they are, cut does not change that. but, with the waist and chest, you can often take it out by half and inch or more depending on how much excess fabric there is, and you can certainly have it taken in. any good tailor can do that pretty easily.

    tl;dr, dont dissuade yourself from koppage simply based on measurements without putting some thought into it.

    Lol. It was more of a making fun of some of the often weird cuts and fits out there. Who comes up with 17.5" shoulders, a 44" chest, 28" boc length and calls that a 40L? Seen it.

    Hai guize! Just want to let you know that these are/were my jackets. :spam:

    Blue Isaia
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/310912249099?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Navy Castangia
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/310912249036?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    I don't think it needs an introduction but the Isaia is simply the tits. There should be some excess to lengthen the sleeves so don't let that stop you from wanting a badass blue check jacket.

    The Castangia - it was heartbreaking to see it go too. It was everything I sought in a staple navy jacket except that it just didn't fit 100% perfectly. Again, there should be excess to lengthen the sleeves. They're unfinished - no holes, etc. Although I did add some pretty sweet brown MOP buttons.

    Please keep bidding so that I can keep buying! Thanks.

    @steveoly I want the Castangia, it should fit me nice everywhere but I don't know if the sleeves have like 1" to let out.
