    Hi MrFrown,

    I’m Marco co-founder of Shangri-La Heritage, nice to meet you.

    I already replied to the other thread because I wanted to shed some light on the points touched in that discussion regarding our jackets.

    Those made in Pakistan jackets are actually the first samples ever made for Shangri-La Heritage, we met these manufacturers in a leather trade show in Italy back in 2016 when Daniel (the other co-founder of Shangri-La Heritage) and I didn’t have a clear idea of which characteristics our products should have had, we didn’t have a company, we didn’t have an e-commerce...

    We talked to them and we wanted to see how they worked, so we ordered a bunch of jackets as samples. When the jackets arrived they were actually good, we sent them to the first retailers we contacted at that time because we needed to get some feedback.

    In the meantime we figured out better how we wanted our products to be and which kind of values we wanted to deliver with Shangri-La Heritage, so we ditched the Pakistani and we kept looking for Italian workshops that could produce our jackets, and eventually we found it. Since then, every leather jacket we make is Hand Made in Italy in a family run workshop in Lecco, Northern Italy.

    You can see the actual people that work there following this link https://www.shangrilaheritage.it/craftsmanship/ and I would be more then happy to make whoever of you guys wants to visit the workshop, it’s address is: C.so Emanuele Filiberto 74, 23900 Lecco (Italy).

    Please let me know if you need more information!

    Cheers,

    Marco

    Sarebbe veramente un piacere di visitare il workshop :)

    I would love to go when travel is easier. It is about an hour from Malpensa as far as I can see.

    Really nice jacket but if I was you I would at least size down by one size. I guess this 70s style jacket needs to be worn rather tight. Also sleeves seem to be too long.

    How many more victims will "shoulder width" measurement leave in its wake of destruction. Ignore the fantasy measurement and get a 42. Maybe even 40, by the look of things.

    Definitely one if not two sizes too big.
    The waist fits like a bag, the shoulders are falling off your natural shoulders, arms are also 2" too long.

    Thanks guys, how do yall prefer to base your sizing? Im a 43” chest and typically like a 22.5 to 23.5” p2p and 18.5” to 19.25” shoulder. This one seemed to check those boxes , if on the high end for both and wow did i swing and miss. Is there “gold standard measurement you live by?

    From the Japanese eBay unicorn. There are at least three different listings for this jacket, same pics, different prices and different sellers. All that silly business aside/ this is cool:

    @mmmargeologist I do have a 40.5" chest and usually choose 41-42" (2x pit to pit) as I prefer rather tight fit (depending on jacket style). In your case approx. 44-45" could fit depending on what you want to wear underneath the jacket (I usually wear rather thin shirts underneath such kind of jackets). If I was you I would ask the shop for more detailed measurement of for their recommendation (you can simply tell them your body measurements and if you prefer tight or loose fit...that's how I started with my first MTO jacket).
    Cheers,
    Robbie
