    Dang man. That is a nice jacket. I can say first hand the seller is a great guy to deal with. Lightning fast shipping and item arrived exactly as described.
    I was hoping this would be your Arcadia. If that one goes up for grabs no need to post. Ring me first.

    Can you please measure the width of the jacket at the hem? 22" PTP may work for me if it has some taper through the body. Thanks!

    Nice jacket, but its shoulders and chest look way too small for its size 44, the measurements of this beaut are closer to size 40L.
    Just can't stop watching the photos above. It's spectacular jacket. Looks fantastic!
    Wish it would be true to size 44!

    John, your GW Arcadia looks to be at least two sizes bigger considering its measurements. That Arcadia is absolutely exciting jacket too, you should definitely be very thankful to @regius for that beaut!

    Fit pic I'm 5"10 205 44 inch chest.
    So the chest is actually not where its tight.
    The shoulder area snug, the back of the jacket at the underarms is the big issue for me. I dont feel it when my arms are naturally hanging on my sides, when I raise an arm especially 2 at the same time it gets very tight. Very uncomfortable grabbing the steering wheel for example [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I definitely am, I was hoping this would fit the same. I was assuming John's 44 would be standard 23-23.5 chest, but no

    I want to make it clear that this is a new jacket. John made it, he wore it to the photo shoot, offered it to me and I bought it. I tried it on 2 times of which I took pics at that time. John shipped on the 15th. I received it on may 17th 2019.

    John, to not waste the money trying to sell the new jacket after just trying it on, without even wearing it outside - I'd try to return it back to GW because it looks at least 2 sizes smaller than size 44 which is marked on its sizetag.
    I suppose, it would be the best decision in this case.
    This jacket really deserves someone in size 40 or 40L to wear it thankfully. You shouldn't waste your money because of wrong sizetag on the jacket.
    JC is the real gentlemen and the very nice man, so just try to communicate with him and I'm almost sure he would help you in this case to resolve the situation with this jacket well.
    If you don't agree with my point - please just skip it.
    P.S. The jacket is absolutely wonderful, someone in size 40 or 40L would be happy to wear this beaut.

    Man looking back at the photos...This is some Chi town Shinki. Didn’t even know Horween dabbled in such affairs.
