    Hello, I'm looking for a second hand cafe racer jacket. I'm 6ft 2", 47" chest with a 32" waist and am wondering if anyone with similar measurements an recommend anything that fits nicely.

    I like the look of the Vanson and Schott cafe racers but they are a little hard to come by here in the UK so I thought I'd ask here before I throw any money away.

    Thanks.

    That’s quite the chest to waist ratio. Aero’s cafe racers are quite v-shaped and they pop up on eBay in the UK, or in the classifieds here. They’re a roomy cut so you’d probably be a 46.

    Hi.

    What size do you need?

    you probably need custom sizing. But the Aero Cafe Racer (not the Board Racer) is a good starting point because it's made for V shape. But you probably need a 44 or 46 size for chest/shoulder with a 40 size for body and bottom hem. Good thing is they're in Scottland so should make things easier for you.

    I have the same problem. The aero cafe racer is your best bet. They can even make it smaller around the waist.

    I'm not sure but i'm guessing a 46. I've never tried on a Schott, Vanson etc so I've got no idea if they fit tight or loose. I've just read a review saying a schott 530 size L will fit a 46 inch chest so i can add that to the search list.

    I would also recommend Aero's Cafe Racer with a request for more taper to the waist.

    This is a straight out of the box fit pic of mine with August collar and 1" more taper on both sides:
