    Yea, but your jacket will probably measure out to about a 39" chest....that's more reasonable...only 2" of room on each side.

    That's CRAZY to buy a jacket that is 8" larger than your own measurements unless you're going for some ghetto look.

    I had never bought any TOJ before and went off Charlie's advice. I said that sounded big, but he was sure. Not looking to talk shit; I should have stuck to it. Hope everyone else's fits well.

    On a related note, sell or alter?

    I'd try to sell it unless you're completely in love...seeing as it isn't being made anymore you can probably get close to your purchase price.

    Naw homie, I'm not calling you out, I'm more saying that's crazy that Charly would suggest that for you with that chest measurement. Altering's going to cost you a pretty penny, everything's pretty baggy. TBH, I think you could of had a 'slim' fit like you were wanting with a lengthened 46

    considering drew said they are done making baseball jackets, selling it should be really easy.

    Yeah. It's not like it's hard to sell stuff in size 50 at that guy's height.

    If all of the bball jackets are done and Drew has already cut ties with the dude who did them, then you shouldn't try to get them altered (unless you wanna ask for the maker's contact info lol).

    Put that jacket in the closet until you're 180lbs at least man.

    wtf are you talking about - he clearly said he went off of charly's recommendations, not drew's

    anyway charly probably anticipated a bigger frame considering you told him you're bulking up - but yeah, i agree with the above. you probably shouldn't try to alter it.

    i would flip it on B&S

    needs too much work done

    the jacket itself, however, looks quite nice ... shame you got the wrong size, esp since it's now discontinued

    despite my disappointment, some of these responses definitely got a laugh. I mentioned to Charlie that I am bulking up a bit, but not looking to get huge (certainly not big enough for this to fit me). Just a bit of a miscommunication I guess.

    Oh well, learned my lesson.

    I think I've had mine for about a year and a half now? I can't remember. dizzhizz has had his 756S for a few months longer than I've had my Sinn.

    Sinn makes really great watches. I love my watch (756) and I still find myself randomly staring at the dial. Would love to own a 356 as well, but not now. Maybe in the future.
