Prior to my time here at TFL I was never aware of the subtle differences and exacting nature of the fit of a jacket, especially ones constructed of leather. I always thought that I had sizing down and would always find a suitable fit at 38-40 and small to medium. The eye-opening moment for me came once I realized that slight modifications of body length, shoulder width or chest measurements could make a world of a difference. Then the search began for me as I worked through a range of sizes and measurements to find the right fit. I also began to understand the limits that certain jacket patterns had for me and that ultimately I couldn’t wear every style even if the measurements seemed right. All of your fit pics led me further down the rabbit hole. Have you found that certain patterns/styles seems to fit best for you? Or a certain manufacturer seems to be suit your build more frequently than others? I’ll continue to make my way through the Japanese makers of interest as well as more neo-vintage patterns but live every day vicariously through you all and your jackets!
