    This is exactly the fit I want after all this is supposed to be a slim fit jacket that is typically not available from Vanson. If the DR goes well I will definitely be in for the cafe race in a slim fit like the junya.

    We need a photoshop pro to design a StyleForum Cafe' Racer that people will want...we have the fit, but how do StyleForum members want the cafe' racer to look?

    would the standard cut have something like 18.5-19" shoulders and a 22" chest? and still be slim in the body and sleeves? :D
    this cut looks like it has pretty wide shoulders with a slim fit, which cut is this? I thought slim fits meant narrower torso with the same width shoulders relatively, if you downsize both the shoulders and chest measurement, isn't that basically just a smaller size with extended lengths?

    I'm in for as close to the Junya cafe as possible. Don't really care how the lining looks.

    This is the Vanson Enfield. Shown is the standard fit. It's available in tight fit as well. Standard fit is $599.99 USD and tight fit is $649.99 USD. Both are very nice and available through Insurrection / Thurston Bros. here in the United States.

    Yes, those measurements would be a standard fit, not a slimfit.

    The fit shown is the japanese slimfit, which is the very slimmest of Vanson's fits...

    Slimfits size down the shoulders and the chest for a "straighter" pattern. Slimfits also decrease bicep circumference quite a bit...

    Tight fit Enfield jackets are available now! They're a Tight Fit Model B with a collar...shoulder-to-shoulder is and chests are smaller than standard....

    Here's the tight fit Model B... Price on both the Tight Fit Model B and Tight Fit Enfield is $649.99 USD. Japan orders a lot of these!

    On tight fit models we need the split back to fit the body better...

    I think the Daytona Model would provide a good base design with the following adjustments:
    1: Curved/Slanted Snap back collar (Vaj3/continental comet)
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    2: Full front length double zip to hem (Vaj3/model b) - Visible (a) and not concealed (b)
    a[​IMG]b [​IMG][​IMG]
    3: Front facing sleeve zips
    4: Remove the placket and arm stripes
    5: Chest and hand warmer pockets as seen on the Junya

    A cursory edit of the Junya to meet this design. (removed forearm-elbow panel & bicep zip)

    I agree with all of this...however, do we want the Super Japanese Slimfit of the DR or the slimfit of the Daytona? Here's a look at the standard slimfit...

    Slim fit of the Daytona looks good, but I think higher armholes and slimmer arms would look better.
