    I figured as much. I was just trying to find a similar jacket to the H&M above. But for $30 I doubt it will happen.

    I may be able to ship one to you from Canada, the problem is that it would cost $20 just to mail it to the states.

    I think the problem is that that exact pattern is not sold in USA.

    Oh right. I forgot its even cheaper in the US. Probably best to just get it at full price really. The options are to get it now and know you have it or wait and hope it goes on sale. $20 difference isnt that much. Its a nice jacket for sure.

    The very same one is available in the US. If you have an H&M near you check out their LOGG department.

    Yes, Please check. I'm in no rush, whenever it fits your schedule.
    I am 5'10" 167 pounds, 32inch waist. 38 inch chest usually fits really well. My actual chest is 39" but most cloths are baggy, so a 38" jacket usually fits as if it were tailored for me. So probably a medium.

    I couldn't get anything close to that jacket for $60 otherwise, so it is still a good deal for me.
    Please let me know and we can work it out with Paypal.

    You are about the same size as me. I went with the medium and it fit really well. Send me a PM and Ill check on Friday. I live pretty close to one of the Toronto H&Ms and I need to go down to that area on Friday anyway.

    The closest H & M to me is Atlanta, GA, about $56 of Diesel round trip. Not to mention the headache. I was under the impression that they don't have mail order.

    I'm 6' 4" with a fairly long torso, but these shirts are A)shorter than most modern repros and B)ridiculously shorter than vintage originals. Vintage work shirts were designed to stay tucked in while working and had a long tail. These are fashion fit/Japanese fit....sadly they come untucked. I wear jeans and trousers.

    Nope, the arms are plenty long enough for me oddly.

    I went with XL based on measurements from a reliable seller on eBay. The jacket measures about 23.5/24 armpit to armpit. My chest measures 42", normally wear an L in most LVC Sunset shirts. The jacket is slim fitting and made of really nice leather.
