    "Will probably be" i took to mean "what people will mostly do," and we've already heard we can add the belt back on, among other things.

    You can add, delete, and rearrange...as long as it's going to look good! Most changes are to be had for under $250.00 USD on custom builds...

    Quilting is no problem! However, Vanson doesn't do shearling liners...

    Was going to do this yesterday but... Giants... [​IMG]

    Anyways, I received my fit jacket yesterday and had a chance to try it on.

    This is a size L (slim version).

    First 3 pictures are with it unzipped, 2nd 3 are zipped

    (sorry for the black jacket on black t-shirt... makes it hard to see where the lines end.

    I need some help/suggestions with the body. Waist is definitely too big and the jacket is possibly slightly too short but I'm not sure how much to adjust for each.

    Also, I was planning on getting this in dark brown color. Any suggestions? Or does someone know the post that shows the different leathers available for upgrade?

    For reference, using TOJ's method for measurements,

    I'm 6'1", 185lbs,
    Shoulders: 18"-18.5"
    Chest: 41", 42"
    Midsection: 32"-33"
    Waist: 34"-35"

    Whoa whoa whoa. Wasn't really interested in getting another leather, but if waxed cotton is an option...

    What's the fabric/weight like on those?

    hi, could you also measure the jacket using TOJ method? (http://johncoppidge.tumblr.com/howtoorder). It would serve as a great reference point.

    Feedback:
    - length - take full body shot with shoes on to determine if its too short or long
    - shoulders look fine
    - chest looks fine. Could be trimmed a bit if you prefer
    - sleeves could be ever so slightly slimmer
    - waist - agree with you. Needs to be taken in.

    i'd add enough length that it goes down to end at the top of your coin pocket. everything else looks good--the sleeves look maybe .5" long, but i expect they'll shorten a little once the sleeves on your final jacket get creased up. and once it's longer, the waist size may not be a problem anymore, and you've got those strap adjusters you can slim it down with anyway.

    I'd add 2 inches to the length, taper the waist an inch or two and call it good. I like the sleeve length. Upper back could lose a little too, but it depends on how you want it fit.

    I thought we could only change body and sleeve length. Are we able to change width?

    I would go down to a ML, or even a M, and lengthen the jacket just a bit. Incidentally, what you call your "midsection" is actually your natural waist, The 34-35" is are your hips. Or, if you have wide shoulders and slimmer hips, you might even go for the M in the non-slim version, which has winder shoulders for the same body.

    Yes you're right. I was calling it whatever TOJ calls it. They call the hip area "waist" and the waist area "mid section".

    http://johncoppidge.tumblr.com/howtoorder

    It's a bit confusing... wasn't sure which one others are more familiar with so I just said TOJ measurements.

    I think my main issue is the bottom of my rib cage sticks out more than normal so when I stand up straight, it kind of lifts up the front part of the jacket... which makes it seem shorter than it really is.

    Cheers. In the off chance we are able to adjust widths, waist could come down 20.5-20.75". For your height, front length of 23-23.25" should be plenty. But length is a very personal thing.

    LA guys recommendation to come down to ML sounds good. You might get a slimmer waist by going down a size but you will also end up with slimmer chest and shoulders. Do you have space in those areas to come down? It might start to compromise on comfort.
