    This looks like a decent project; awaiting fit pics, I am 5 10 150 pounds and wear a Japanese medium or usa small. Can't imagine how some of you guys have a 32/33 inch waist with similar stats to mine. my waist is 28 inches, 36 inc chest, 16.5 inch shoulders; so I am kinda skeptical since for a leather jacket mine would have to be very slim.

    If the hem is banded should the cuffs be banded also? Thinking about balance. Tojs are pretty good example of this.

    There is no reason for the cuffs to be banded. tbh, that would be like matching your pocket square to your tie. The banding would be to match the level of detail in the jacket, overall. I think that that is a better approach than matching different elements.

    At your size, you don't want a jacket that is too slim. Slim through the shoulders with a slim but straight cut through the body, and arms not too long (you want the leather to fall in a straight line) is what will give you that slim look that have been shown in other pictures of really slim guys, on this thread.

    We're pretty similar and I'll be going for a small. Think we'll be bang on with the fit on this though, I'm not worried it won't be slim enough.

    What all will be allowed to be adjusted as far as measurements? Just the lengths?

    You can adjust the sleeve length and the length for a given size.

    A small which fits 17" shoulders would be perfect :)

    Hmmm... What is your weight these days? And as you closer to a 36 or a 38? I am between a 38 and 40, and we're anticipating that the L will fit me. You've met me, and I'm bigger than you, but I'm not sure that I am 2 full sizes bigger.

    Remember that the sizes are transposed to match Japanese sizes. So... that S that was shown in the fit pics is a M is the slimfit sizing. And the jacket will actually be slimmer than shown in the fit pics. The S will be the same as the Junya S, which will be really small. If you are a small US, you are probably going to be a M in this jacket.

    Yes. This is not MTM, but MTO. There are some stock things that you can change, but changing other things requires changing the pattern, which is not feasible.

    You, in my jacket, will make you look terrible, and like a sausage in a small casing.

    On second thought, yeah, you should order the same size as me. It's about time that I look better in something than do you.

    Is size S gonna be the smallest size? Pretty sure I'd need a 'Junya xs', 5'11/125lbs here.

    Wow. But yes, I think that xs is possible.

    Just wondering are we still doing the other Junya after this one?
