Purchased a AMJ03 sports coat from Drop93. The tight armholes make it unwearable - perhaps the fit is better on smaller asian framed customers? Nice jacket otherwise!
Interesting, I had to downsize in amj03 vs say 184 (ie AMJ03 is already the “bigger version”)

yes I’m asian...

Really? The AMJ03 is perfect for me in my usual size and I have a decent chest and shoulders from the gym. I'm not tall but wouldn't consider myself smaller framed or Asian in decent.

What size did you grab? The armholes are high but that's a plus for many.
Yep, I have an 8.5ish inch drop and I like the AMJ03 a lot.

Size 50. Actually everything fit really well - shoulders, waist, length etc. There's just a tightness at the armhole that made it a deal breaker for me. And I'm a slimmer build 5'11, 160lbs

Here's an AMJ03 jacket, purchased from LuxeSwap @SpooPoker 's recent sale (still a lot of good Ring Jacket deals to be had...).

For me, the armholes are nicely fitted and higher in my normal size, nothing like the tight-fitting arms on the Japanese Meister 268s that I commented on a few pages back. Maybe sizing up one could alleviate the tightness in the arms?

I'm interested in some of the classic fit chinos currently on sale at The Rake. I wear a size 38 in Brooks Brothers and a size 40 in Suitsupply and Spier & Mackay. Would size 54 or 56 fit me better?

The AMJ03 is by far my favorite fit I own from RJ. Only including the SB models.

FYI, with the imminent shutdown of Barneys NY, their modest but versatile collection of Ring Jacket items is on sale at 15% off. Prices will likely drop over the next few months if anything is left, but returns are only accepted until Nov 15, I think.

Hi all
Hoping for a bit of help. Totally new to RJ and indeed totally new to Neapolitan style tailing having worn sack jackets almost exclusively.
Anyhow, does anyone know which model this is and what the fit is like?
Thanks

The fit is on the slim side, and personally I went one size up from my other neapolitan suits.

One of my personal favorites.
