Thanks for the feedback. Yes, this is the new blue plain. I was worried it would be too light of a blue, but it's on the darker side and not as bright as the picture online. It has a nice texture to it. This is my first SS jacket and I do like it. My concern with size is that it might be a bit big. It feels like, at a minimum, it could use some waist suppression and the sleeves shortened. Based on the measurements provided on their website, I thought it might fit a little closer across across the chest. This is a 42R. I'm 6'1'', 180lbs, 42" chest with a 33" waist. My shoulders are on the broad side, so I find it hard to fit my shoulders/chest without it being too boxy. I'm wondering if a 40R might be a little better.
