Hi people, so I've been actively searching for a thick B-3 for over a year now. I've bought a total of 3 but none of them fit correct so I had to sell them all. I'm pretty desperate at this point as I don't want to spend more than 5-600 Dollars considering I come from Germany and have to pay tax on everything I import. I did however find some Avirex B-3's in japanese markets where I'm willing to spend that extra dollar if they fit right. The only thing is I'm really confused on the sizing. I'm a 5"11 guy 175lbs quite slim build though. I'm not sure if cockpit USA still has the same sizing as Avirex back in the day but I sent them my measurements and they recommended a size 38. Yet whenever I compare the measurements of size 38 Avirex's to my body they all seem a good size too large. Now considering the fact that a size 34-36 is extremely hard to find (even in japanese markets where the general body build is way smaller I would say) I am starting to question my ability to measure since I usually never wear sizes that small and also I was recommended a size 38. So my question is could anybody with similair body build tell me what size they have in said jackets? Or perhaps post the arm/shoulder length of a different brand jacket if you have a similair body build. Example of size 38 measurements would be 49cm shoulder width, 66cm Arm length so a total of 181cm if you add all that up (2x Arms). I find this way of measuring the most accurate and also in cm most precise so please convert to inches if you have trouble. I'm also open to opinions of any type or recommendations.
