Thanks everyone! I did provide some other measurements to her from which she derived the size 42" with 27" Back length and 26.5" Sleeve length. For reference and to help anyone else down the road, the other measurements were :
Height is: 6'-1"
Chest relaxed: 42"
Chest expanded 43.5"
Normal Sleeve: 35"
Sleeves and torso were finally arrived at after I sent a few photos, so I think she has me pegged pretty well as far as that goes.
Eclarvaux, could you elaborate on the difference between plain and standard cuff, or were you just referring to the storm cuff? If so, I agree and am going in that direction. I asked Amanda about the contrast stitching and she said that since the Highwayman has roll-over stitching throughout, there would not be a location to use contrast stitching on this model. I agree with you though, I think the olive looks great.
I considered the stacked pocket dilemma and was considering just doing one inside pocket on the opposite side but then it would be a left handed pocket which doesnt make a lot a sense for my rightie needs. The other option would be to put the zipper on the right hand side which seemed a little odd, or just eliminate it. I kind of like the traditional look of the pocket though.....TBD on this I suppose.
Mattp, you say they can shave it down, is that something that is done standard for this detail?
Thanks again for all the insight!
