    Hey Drew,

    This is something I caught:

    You stated to only measure the front of the jacket while measure both front and back of your shoulder.

    For the ratio, what would go up in the numerator for the jacket's measurement since you only asked for the front? Shouldn't there be a measurement of the jacket's back as well so a person can calculate the ratio for the back shoulder?


    Not drew, but you're right. I think he forgot it because the back shoulder is computed from the front shoulder. Just measure the back shoulder as well.

    I average the two, because the jacket usually measures the same front/back. I was gonna fiddle with the numbers later on my own. [​IMG]

    Sent in numbers already, but I'm curious as to whether or not you're going to qualify the fits that the numbers you get correspond to. Different people have different fits on jackets, some people have slimmer fits, some people have extremely relaxed fits. If you classify the jackets into skinny/slim/relaxed, for example, and then group the measurements into those classifications, you'll have more useful sets of numbers.

    Drew,
    How long do we have to do this? I plan on measuring my bomber but probably can't get to it until the weekend.
    Cheers!

    I kind of remember the jackets and have a general sense of how they fit on people, from fit pics, and from the numbers themselves. I can tell if you are doing it right, just by the numbers [​IMG]
