    Is there anything that can fit 3xl skinhead?

    WTF is going on. All those BS and FP are for teenagers with no beer muscles. I scored BS harrington in 2xl plus size. fits nice but bloody sleeves are too short. arghhh

    I dont know how sizing went back in the day, but BS sizing in particular aren't very big and tall friendly. Mod fit and soho fits were designed for slimmer individuals. Or were skinsheads in the 60s and 70s just slimmer than now? As for FP on my personal experience with them their sizes vary. My FP polos are inconsistent, i'm a 38 in one and in another I'm a 40 . I can only imagine trying to find fp polos in 2xl. BS polos are even slimmer.
    As for harringtons, FP harringtons I think tend to be more generous on the sleeve area atleast compared to my merc. Have you tried a merc harrington?

    My chest size is 50. So far the only well fitting harrington jacket I found is COMBAT brand in 4xl. I got one in burgundy. Haven't seen Merc's in my size at all. I am looking at G-9 but hesitant to pay over $200 to get short sleeves again.

    I lost 75lb in 9 months. Trying to finish off another 25 by July.

    I'd forgotten them! :D Welcome back MoM !

    Queenie - Yes, that's it, '71, it's a checked bomber style jacket with black elasticated collar and cuffs? I wondered if it had a 'name' ? Sorry, I can't get a better picture of it.

    Hi guys, here's some more dodgy knitwear photos, courtesy of the East End Boot Boys from 1970 - pics taken in Ashton Park opposite the City Ground - I'm a Gashead myself but these old boys aren't bad lads, they just strayed a bit...[​IMG]

    I've been told that the MIE ones fit somewhat slimmer than the China ones, though I don't notice much of a difference. Both could stand a touch more length IMHO, and this is not coming from a particularly tall guy.
