By way of whatever, here's a photo I took just now when I got in from a no-reason-but-the-sun's-shining ride.

This is my all season armoured riding jacket, from Merlin in oxblood cow. I bought it in a 40 to give me layering room on my 39" chest measurement. I always used to think I should have got a 38 because this felt a bit too roomy.

But here it is over just a t shirt, and as I posted earlier, lately I'm more concerned with just being comfortable.

And in spite of everything, I don't even think it looks like a generous fit. I think it looks like it fits just right. And it's not the jacket that's changed, it's my relaxing view on how a range of fits can still all fit.

Looks good. As if it should be like that ;)

All are pretty good, but as far as sleeve length goes I think the second two have better sleeve length. I'm not one for having my sleeves piling up but they need to land below the wrist bone.
