    i did the above guide with a raf bomber i have and it came out near perfect. took jacket measurements combined with drew's (or charley at the time) measurement advice and it came out great. it's not rocket science.

    Size guide, part B: Measuring your body for TOJ jackets

    Pretty simple. Find someone to measure you, preferably. You can do this alone, but be sure you're measuring correctly.
    Be sure to stand up straight, and for chest measurements, make sure you aren't relaxing your muscles.

    When emailing me, tell me that these are your body measurements, and not jacket measurements. Also, tell me your height and weight

    Step 1) Shoulders - measure across the front. The points to which you measure should be right on top of the shoulder, and slightly forward of the center point - basically at the joint but on the front side

    measuring point on body:

    Step 2) Chest- measure around the broadest point of your chest, this is about an inch or so above your nipples.
    [​IMG]

    Step 3) Midsection - Measure around, about where the ribcage ends, this is ideally the slimmest part of your torso - stand naturally and don't suck in.

    Step 4) Waist - measure around the hipbones, or slightly below; this is a wider part than the midsection.
    (could measure a little lower than is indicated in photo, belt was impeding measurement)
    [​IMG]

    Step 5) Front length - measure from the collarbone (top of the bone point, if you want to be exact) to where you think the jacket should hit. Preferably well below your navel, about where your pelvis dips down, but not quite all the way to the natural crotch. If you're wearing jeans high and fitted on the butt, the jacket should hit about mid-rise on your jeans. If you wear your jeans slightly sagged, then it should go right below the waistband on your jeans.
    (this measurement should be nowhere near as long as an untucked buttonup shirt, and if you wear your tees long, not as long as that either)
    [​IMG]


    Step 6) Sleeve length - from the shoulder point (refer to step 1) down to where the hand widens below the wrist.

    [​IMG]

    Step 7) Bicep - flex and measure around

    That's all we need for body measurements. Don't forget to tell me your height and weight as well.

    If you try one method and you're still unsure, try the other method - having more info doesn't hurt.

    Nice 5-zip :slayer:

    Bookmarked the posts for the future. There really shouldn't be any mishaps in measuring now.

    Well, that jacket is 12 years old now, so the wear is honest. :eek:

    Go to Philly. Its all they say and its wildly annoying. Especially since my first name happens to be John. I literally cringe everytime i hear someone say it.
