    Dimensions:
    Shoulders: 19.75"

    IMG_6580.JPG The following photos detail my issues with the fit. I am including these to help a possible next owner determine if it may fit them correctly. For reference, in these photos I am 6'0" and 195 lbs. Waist size of my jeans is a 36. My biggest areas included a torso (length Apx 21") that does not reach or cover my belt, and it's rather baggy through the upper arm/chest area. If you bench 245 in sets, and run around 190 shoulder press, and are around 5' 10", it may fit you perfectly! :)

    I saw the recent sale of this DD, but didn't comment. I thought the jacket was able to sell itself. Plus I don't like to mess too much in other's sales threads. I thought I would rave a bit now, Randy and I are friends.

    That is my thread linked first. This jacket gets more compliments on my youtube channel. It is always a hit. I believe someone just mentioned it again.

    I bought that jacket and a RMC half belt from the same seller. I sold it here, it came back and sold again to Randy.

    Personally I like my pictures better, so go to that thread. It's OK, Randy and I are friends. The jacket has a Shinki sheen you can see better in my pics, the video too.

    In comparison I am 5' 9" 190 in my pics/vid. That makes the difference, not the jacket, the wearer. Randy bought a very nice Vintage Hercules from me. He was in house. That was a 46 also, but fit nice.

    If you are my size/range, this is a Very nice Jacket. I wore that jacket a bit, very comfortable weight.

    I've sold back jackets to buyers, I have bought back and re-sold a jacket. not sure where I am now.

    ^^ Thanks Terry, I'll have to see what's happening with my camera, it just did not represent this jacket very well and your shots are a lot better. Especially the fit photos, which I typically prefer to shoot outside). It's snowing today, so not a good option.

    And yes, what Terry said is correct! Any other situation and this would not be leaving my place. :)
