    Closest I could come to capturing the chocolate brown lambskin (DR):

    This is so good. I'm always jealous of people who look good in brown. REParola's is fucking excellent as well.

    I already put in my order for a calf bomber a couple weeks ago, but am second guessing my sizing. I'm about 5'7", 5'8" and 130. I opted for a 45 everything with extra length added to the body (22" front and 24" back).

    Did most of you guys add that extra bit of length too? I wanted the bomber to fall a little below the waistline and am hoping that's the right place for the jacket to end.

    To chime in about the virtues/vices of MTM: I love my DR, but I honestly don't think its custom sizing was a serious win. A stock/standard size would probably fit fine and have been less hassle and uncertainty for all involved. And would be free of the nagging feeling that if I'd taken slightly better measurements, the jacket would be that much closer to perfect.

    As a short dude with broad shoulders, i'm going to say that, without MTM as an option, I never would have sprung for a ToJ in the first place

    I'm so sorry it's just that the steeziness is so far beyond anything else I have that it throws off my equilibrium [​IMG]

    @ Eternal - [​IMG]


    The only problem with my DR fit is the sleeves seem a bit big (i.e, not long, just too big). There's a 'lot' of excess material around the elbow area and I get a bulge happening when I have my arm straight (especially with zips done up). Looking at everyone else's though, y'all appear to have gotten pretty slim sleeves, so it seems like a one off.

    I'm exaggerating here though, irl it's nowhere near that bad, some people might even prefer the bulkier look. Apart from that fit is amazing, and I gave such shitty details to charly where I had almost nothing that fit right for reference, he did a great job. Sleeve length and shoulders are perfect.

    Man how much extra is that FQHH? It looks amazing...so much so that I might have to add a 3rd leather to my ToJ collection. I'll hold out for the new styles though[​IMG]

    the sizing sounds right to me

    honestly if you got the sizing recommendation from charly you should have nothing to worry about man
