    Honestly I didn't want to say anything but I don't think that jacket suits Snowman's proportions.

    its not the bicep area or anything, its the actual arm hole that is really too small for me.

    its a bit wide, right? dont know if i can help that, i cant size down anymore :eek:

    armholes always start out tight for me too. i've found they loosen very slightly, though no experience with calf. I run into this problem a lot so it's not just toj.

    its that age old dilemma where you take the risk to break it in and if it works, fine. if not then ill have to take a bigger loss :eek:

    armhole on my jacket was too high, had to sell it. loved it other than that, but it was just uncomfortable. anyone with a muscular body has to do some serious adjustments to these jackets otherwise they'll be uncomfortable, especially in calf.

    It's funny because coming from an MC perspective, the aim is to have the highest possible armholes in order to maximize mobility and minimize the shift of the jacket when you are reaching for stuff. I get bummed out when jacket armholes don't touch my pits.

    Snowman, your jacket is calf? Yeah rough stuff. In hindsight, at least for me, i should've got all of my jackets in lamb except my med whiskey. The high smiles don't bother me at the very slightest and I'm ocd like you. Bball, moto, and mdr all in calf bother me a little but i get over it haha.

    Maybe bigger shoulder and P2P would help relieve higher armholes on the calf jackets? I imagine the arm hole would sit further out. I ordered a calf jacket and added a hair to both, and .1 to the armhole (from my bomber that is)

    Yeah, that's what charly suggested (once p2p is a bit bigger you wont need all the space in the armhole)

    I think a lot of the boxy-ness of Snowman's jacket is because its new calf and isn't draping, although I actually feel like the 4-zip mdr configuration maybe emphasizes it - while I love mine, I'm tending to wear it zipped up for this reason.

    I think snowman should get a 3-zip or artishard rider in black goat, would look great.

    Calf seems like the antithesis of the snow aesthetic... all about flowy fabrics (and hair). Lamb seems like a better match

    So i think im going to get a navy qdr. I already have a black lamb 2010 that i love. Is there any reason i should go calf on this one, or just stick with the lamb?

    Y'all are silly :laugh:

    I'm sitting on my couch wearing a rick tee under the 4zip as I type this, feels good.

    I'm sure Toj lamb is 1000 times thicker than my raf but I like the stiffness of the calf. It still looks nice with my usual stuff. It's a cool juxtaposition between the hardcore calf and more delicate fabrics. But it's all tied together with some sturdy boots. ...Just my own opinion
