    It won't be too tight in the chest. I learned the hard way the MDR should be pretty close to the chest.

    Haha should've clarified that with 'of the ones that are quilted'. But if you feel like your honour has been impinged perhaps we could see a BCDR fit battle... :slayer:

    ^ Haha, thanks for clarifying, boss. :laugh:

    No way mine could compete with realmisr's, though. My honor, if I had any, remains intact. :)

    I'd strongly suggest tightening up the chest and body measurements a bit. Sounds like your sleeves will be quite tight, but the body quite loose in comparison. I'd suggest going with the multiplier Drew mentioned earlier - multiply your body measurements by 1.06 and go with that.

    I don't get it... measure self/have competent tailor confirm measurements -> submit to Charly -> order complete...

    I was hoping Drew would put that up in his blog. Hard to scour all 994 pages just to look for that magic multiplier post

    They usually do it for you when you answer whether you want a tight, slim, or "looser" fit.

    Yeah, not sure what happened but something has been compromised. Trying to figure it out but I'm not the greatest at this :p May just reconfigure everything when I have a chance this weekend.

    My calfskin MDR is slim, IIRC. Honestly, I should've just listened to Charly. I told him to up the shoulders a bit, and I think it would've looked before if I didn't. For my whiskey 4-zip, I gave Drew my measurements, sent him funds and told him to size me. Came out perfectly so...

    There couldn`t be that much difference from a slim to tight?

    You decide... 1.06 to 1.08.

    For people who workout, how much leeway should I put in my measurements to take into account for 5-10 extra lbs? My order is placed for an A-2 so there is more leeway in that style compared to the others, but I'm afraid that I will outgrow it!
