    Generally shirts can have more give in the chest than a leather jacket and still look good IMO, it's a totally different kind of material.

    My MDR came too. Again, I feel it's a .5 - 1 size big but I told Charley I planned on adding 10-15 pounds. Since then, I got sick and lost weight. [​IMG] Nevermind the hair, been a long day. [​IMG] [​IMG] I guess chest + 3" or so would be my ideal fit. Right now it sits at chest +5.
    I wonder if it's the color or the photos that hides it; I can tell it's too big on you, but it still looks alright. I know how you feel about losing weight. Went through the same thing with pneumonia last year, and I'm still trying to gain back the weight I lost. Out of curiosity, what's your chest size and what size did you end up ordering? Also, is that medium or dark grey?

    Look at the picture right above it. It's just used to keep the inner zipper flap in place and is probably optional. Krayzeez jacket has it too and it's also on the QDR and BCDR.

    Thought I read somewhere that the Minimalist DR's have wider upper sleeves (bicep) because of higher arm-holes? Is there any truth to that? Because IMO, the last two fits have been thrown off a little by the slack in the upper arms. Not very flattering for those who are skinny and want a slim fit.

    Of course there are MTM options, but does this apply to stock jackets?

    Everyone orders the sleeve widths to their choice, so what you are seeing is people with bigger arms ordering jackets with wider sleeves. How would a higher armhole (ie smaller) lead to a wider sleeve?
    The two fits above: the first guy looks like he has huge biceps which you can see by the way his sleeves wrinkle, and the second guy didn't fasten the cuffs at all, and so they're about 2 or 3" wider than they'd be if the sleeves were zipped up properly. You can't tell that from the front but you can see the little flap in the back hanging there unfastened.

    How closely would you say the diamond quilting would be to these jackets?[​IMG]

    Would be interested in knowing how the diamonds look as well. Did anybody order a QDR with diamond quilting?

    I know this will drive drew nuts, but there was a quilted raf leather like that from fw06 or 07 I think that I always wanted, though I think it was more of a moto style. anyway would definitely be cool in brown.

    between the questions I get on a regular basis via email... and the questions/suggestions I get via this thread... this thread is beginning to lose purpose...
