    If a size 40 cafe racer fit me perfectly what size in this 30's half belt would fit me? And is the fit very comparable to the cafe racer?

  2. Hi sweetfights,

    It is likely that you would be the same size in the 1930s Half Belt, but the fit is really different from the Cafe Racer. The 1930s Half Belt has a straight fit (more room in the waist, less room in the shoulders) that is defined by the side straps at the waist. The side straps expand and contract to give you a more relaxed or a more tapered silhouette. This is a case where we would use a 1930s Half Belt fit jacket to verify sizing...the Cafe Racer gives us a ballpark idea, but the half belt fit jacket would allow us to dial in the fit!

    Before you go, I need to make sure that my size 38.57 Half Belt has all brass hardware, a Royal Stewart Tartan (medium thickness please, if not, go with heavy). Please add storm cuffs, and I actually want to subtract an inch and one half from my test jacket length of 25.37. As for sleeves, please subtract four inches. Also, please find the absolutely juiciest batch of Vicenza you can obtain and also, I wanted to call to go over the differences (in detail) of full-grain vs. top grain leather. Finally, will you ship to Sri Lanka? Please respond!

    Just kidding. Enjoy your Holiday!
