    Fanch ole bean that is one fine lookin' jacket and it fits perfectly, even in the back. I find backs are notoriously hard to get right in photos. Well done.

    A lovely jacket by all accounts.
    I'm glad you were able to add a little width to the body. This cafe racer base pattern, without the shoulder gussets is actually quite wide up top & very slim through the body.
    Mine has broken in to be comfortable, but if I were to do it again, I would also have added a little through the body. Probably only 0.5" to each side panel.
    Lovely jacket Fanch.

    Great jacket, one of the best fitting jackets I have seen around here, imho! Adding 2" to the waist is a smart idea which I'll have to keep in mind incase I ever order a Sheene. Also, I love the length of the jacket. May I ask how tall you are?

    I am 6'2" and weigh ~185 lbs. 42" chest and 37" waist. Built like a stick - NOT V-shaped [huh]

    Haha, I feel you. I am 5'9", 180 pounds, 41" chest, 35" waist, yet overall appearance I am built straight up like a tree. I blame it on the gene pool, but it might be that my fondness of whiskey and dark chocolate play their part, too. :whistling shhhhhhhh

    Anyway, thanks for the answer, this should help finding my own perfect fit. Comparing to the measurements you have given us, a size 42 with 26" body length and 2" added in the body would probably be my way to go.

    With a 35" waist (assuming no "love handles" in the midsection), maybe only 1" added to the body, if that. [huh]

    Looks great - perfect fit. I'm surprised a 42 is as big as 48" acros the chest - I'd have thought that would be a 44. Sounds like it's akin to the fit of a Highwayman on the shoulders, but more tapered from there down? Vicenza is a fantastic hide.

    Every-time I see a Sheene posted here I think "why don't I have one of those"?

    If you are are able to nail the fit as in my case, there is no better design, look, and feel than the Sheene. ;)
     
  18. Looks great, Fanch..!!
    Congrats

    Excellent choice Fanch. I really like the Sheene design and it fits you like a glove. Olive drill would be my choice as well. It has a really clean look in the back with no shoulder gussets, no kidney panel and single yoke. This jacket almost doesn't look like it's modeled after the cafe racer. Really nice! if you ever need to thin the herd, I'm in the Dallas area myself.. just sayin'.

    Great indeed. By the way, I went with the same lining for my Cafe racer.
