    This is my favorite jacket. It sits on you perfectly. Now I want one more only in black :D

    These premium jackets really do look like they're cut for a better fit than the standard versions.

    I think that’s true if you are thin with a more narrow shoulder range. The body is every bit as boxy as the original. I believe the standard would probably have been a better choice for myself.

    The standard version is short in front, the sleeves are wider. I did not like. Here is the standard on me

    I believe the front dip (at least 1.5”) should be included on every jacket pattern.

    I think the same. When short, you always want to stretch your jacket down.

    The standard HWM is really really boxy with very low set armholes. I tried to like it as the overall details make for a clean and timeless jacket but imho it just works on stockier body types. I honesty looked a feet shorter and at 5’7” I just can’t afford that :p

    Ton yes with your muscles you’d probably fill it out better than most of us but it’ll be way boxier than the premier.

    I’ve given up on the HWM tbh. It’s a gorgeous jacket, no question, but I much prefer a halfbelt or CR type body config. I should’ve really pushed for a design like @technovox highwayracer or cafeman or whatever it was dubbed.

    All these conversations make me quite nervous to receive my PHWY. Yesterday Carrie informed me that the jacket is on its way to me. :eek:

    It’s going to work out marvelous for you. Better suited to your body type. I could tell that from your fit jacket!

    Let's hope the full 2 inch taper and the more substantial CXL will do the rest!

    I agree. As Bennarian’s photos so clearly illustrate it is really easy to get swallowed up and disappear inside a standard Highwayman. I thought your PHM actually looked phenomenal but I understand that it was not the fit you were looking for.
    Technovox’s Sheene-Man was a masterpiece and i’m surprised we have not seen any copycats yet.

    I have no doubt that would’ve been much more in line with my preferences. I just didn’t want to force the issue...shoulda tried

    Oh man, I'm just seeing all of these posts. That's awesome that @handymike ended up with the jacket! It is a beauty and fits him great! I ended up getting another PHWM that is perfect for me, so I'm very happy the original jacket ended up in great hands. These Aeros are pure amazing...

    Now you all have inspired me to post some fit pics of the "new" (3 year old ;) PHWM. Stay tuned...
