    It looks good as new! Nice catch! I did some number digging on the Ryder before as it is my favorite LW style too and it appears a size 40 has 21" PTP, and a 42 has 22" PTP, very consistently through various jackets and measurements I found. Going by this, size 48 shouldn't have much more than 24" PTP. This plus the taper through the body makes me confidently hoping it'll fit you!

    I desperately hoping that if my 40" from Aero fits size up to a 44" a 48" will fit size down to a 44"!!

    If your new LW fits like true 48, just contact me!

    I think that the Ryder has a trimmer fit than the suburban, but not sure. Can't wait for you to get your jacket!! :D

    It's very unlikely that will fits you if LW labeled 48, then it's either 46 or 48. My returned Suburban has almost exactly measurements from my Suburban 44 but fits smaller.

    I hope I am wrong!!!

    I strongly considered LW's Leathertogs as it is a stunning jacket. Alas, I have too many cross-zips so opted for the CHP. That in the Navy is going to be something to see, great choice!

    No doubt, one day I will own one. I take little peeks at it every once in a while. Your version is going to be very cool.

    A few of us recently ordered LWs, and Ton has a new-to-him jacket on the way. Funny how it seems to happen in spurts. A few Freewheelers here, a bunch of Thedi there. Now LW.

    I have had Suburbans and a Ryder.
    They do fit true to size. The Ryder was a little tighter than the Suburban- both were 4 oz at the time.

    24.5" chest is a tiny 48" tho. Aero's come in at 26" plus at that size...I'll know if it's a flipper on Monday. I hope not. Stu recommended a size 46" for me when I ordered my j-23. Jaw clenched, fist bite until Monday I 'spose.
    Numbers are awfully close to other jackets I own...wish me luck!

    There may well be a Ryder size 48" back in the classifieds if that's the case. Trying not to overthink it too much. But we all know how that goes.
