    If I am a size 36 in most suits, S in Gitman, M in band of Outsiders, should I get a Cameraman in 44 or 46? I'm 5'8", if that helps

    I'd probably say 46.

    well the only size I can find at a reasonable price is 44, so I'm gonna give it a shot. I am looking for a tighter fit, but maybe not as tight as the LN-CC model... http://www.ln-cc.com/nigel-cabourn/n...vt/nig0011arm/ and if it looks bad LN-CC has a pretty great returns policy. can't believe I'm dropping $830 on a single thing right now, I could buy a beater car for that

    This is just my opinion, but I wear essentially the same sizes in the brands you mention and wouldn't even try to fit in a 44, no way. Minimum 46. You don't want your outwear to be skin tight like a sweater or something, especially if you layer even just a sweater under it. Too much $$ to risk it if you ask me.

    hmm well I've compared different sizing measurements online and I think it will leave me some room everywhere, but I am a bit concerned about the narrowness of the shoulders. Have you actually tried on a 44?

    I definitely agree about outerwear being looser, so if I can't wear a sweater underneath I'll just eat the shipping back to the UK

    My Spidey Senses go off when I see anything in any brand under a US36/EU46. As much as measurement may imply that it may fit, my experience with clothing and fits tend to override online measurements in the end as long as the standard size measurements aren't dramatic like a size different say.

    I haven't tried it on, but Zissou said he typically wears medium in EG and got a 50. Medium in EG would almost equate to 48 in my mind, but it seems they have a slim fit. So Spidey Sense tells me that I'm a minimum 46 possibly even a 48 in this jacket. I probably made no sense here haha.

    I agree with tonio. I wear small tops in everything except BoO (mediums) and I wear 46 in the cameramen. I can even get away with 48 but the sleeves are little too long. I definately would not go with 44. Try to find a 46 somewhere.

    ^Yeah, I would be worried about a 44, unless you maybe have short arms and don't want to wear anything under it other than just a shirt. I am willing to bet that the 44 is about 38-39" pit to pit.

    I am a S/M in EG shirts, 6'2", 165lbs, 39" chest, and the 50 is great on me. It has enough room for a heavy sweater without being tight anywhere. Almost everything from Cabourn that I have is slim, with the exception of my one heavy knit that is a 48.

    Ah nice to know. How much roomier was the 48 on you do you remember? Also, I'm not sure how it's made up, but looking at it is it possible to bring up the sleeves easily do you know?

    It shouldn't be too hard to shorten the cuffs, tonio. The sleeves are unlined, but the shoulder seams are raglan and go under the hood.

    hmm well perhaps you all are right. I am definitely glad LN-CC will give refunds instead of just credit, and I have till late January to send it back if its no good.

    I wouldn't be totally opposed to a tight fit, but I'll just have to wait and see if it's unworkable. No way am I gonna pay an extra $500 for a slightly better fit though

    That's what I was wondering, thanks, Z.

    I hope it works out, make sure to update us as that information would be beneficial to me as well.

    I acutally ordered the 48 from Context and found it slightly big, mostly in the arm length. There was definately room for a thick knit or even a blazer (not saying i would wear one under a cameramen). I returned the 48 and got a 46, which fit great.

    The arms should not be too hard to shorten but you may loose some detailing.

    If you are serious, I would highly suggest going with the 46. Just looking at some of your fit pics, I think you would find 48 too big.

    FYI-the cameramen jacket is truely a great piece. I don't regret spending the full price for it.
