    Im fairly broad shouldered for an S, and I prefer somewhat of a boxy'er fit, even then, the slimmer shoulder measurements seem to make more sense. Of cours it kind of depends on the thickness of the leather, but I can't imagine the leather being close to .5 cm...

    Quote:Yup. The XXS you quoted in the DR thread (18.5" p2p, 16.5" s2s) is perfect for me.

    From the DR thread:
    I like it! I'm also glad you went with slimmer shoulders than the Junya models. Are we still a long way off from the prototype? What leather will this jacket be? Z150?

    What configuration did you decide to go with in terms of design?

    Is this design final? I prefer the larger kidney panel on the Daytona.

    So would it be possible to get the Daytona in comp weight with sf moto specs? I like the daytona but looking at the measurements on the vanson page the S shoulders are too large and XS chest is too small.

    This jacket is off of the Daytona pattern. Once we have this done, the shoulders will be 17" for the size small and it should be a good fit on you...

    How's the prototype coming, Thurston Bros? Will we get to see it in the next couple of weeks?
