    Thanks. Is the RMC a bit trimmer fit? My only gripe on the pike are the canon sized sleeves. Both look awfully nice. I do love my Pike. It’s one of those odd keeper jackets, based almost solely on function. but now you have your brown alpaca. That was a sticking point for my pike. I wanted that brown!
    Interesting to note on the RMC about the liner and a T-shirt. I absolutely need long sleeves under my pike. It’s pretty itchy otherwise.

    I started in a brown pike which i preferred. It was an xs and too small. Couldnt source the small.
    Yeah, the rmc sleeves are narrower with a taper. The pike are like straight leg jeans. Tbh the taper may be a bit snug for you.
    I really like the style but don’t need two. I’m going to list them both in the classifieds. I’ll see what interests the collective.

    Great strategy, it appears you can’t lose. That’s always good.

    Settled on a spec for a 30's half belt from Aero today. They say 10-12 weeks...

    Debating on pulling the trigger...
    A natural leather cafe racers is my Grail jacket, but I'm not sure if the seller measured right. All other jackets of the same model online and on their website list a different chest measurement (50cm). Also, thoughts on those marks on the upper arm? Google translate says 'tears' but I'm hoping they could be water marks... Can't tell from pics.

    Would you say that a Pike Medium would fit a 40-42R (closer to a 40R or a 42R)? What about the RMC, what would be the "number" for a 40-42R?

    The measurement seems off indeed, it is supposed to be size M, yet the chest measurement is lower... I wouldn't risk it.

    A fellow lounger says in another thread that Tenjin is available in Switzerland off the rack but Tenjin only does custom order in Japan. So even though the tag size says 38, there may be deviations. Best thing is confirm with the seller the measurements. That is a minor mark or scratch not a tear.

    It might be tear as in cry, so a water mark.

    I would say in general that a RMC at your typical number would provide a trim fit. If you are a 40-42 and want to be able to wear heavy shirts you need a 42. I would say that Pike at your typical size (smlxl) provides a generous fit. I believe ton312 trends towards being a 42 and I think wears a med. So i suppose you’re a pike med and and rmc 42.

    I had been on the lookout for a Vanson Cheyenne or some sort of leather trucker and just got this one for a great deal:

    Looks great, especially the leather. I spotted one or two, but always in a size that fits like a 42, which is too much for me.

    I am pretty sure this M fits like a 42, these are the measurements given by HH121 in his thread:

    Shoulder s to s: 19.29
    Back from base of collar: 25
    1/2 bottom: 19.68
    pit to pit: 22.04 Fits much larger than measurement suggest
    Sleeve straight from shoulder seam: 25.59

    That's a perfect fit for me and i am usually a 42.

    Decided to buy Kunja's Tenjin jacket that I know will fit instead of gambling on one from Yahoo.jp! Supporting that Classifieds economy, I suppose.
