    I am 6'2" and 180lb with wide shoulders, i easily fit in jackets with 18" shoulders.
    If you like that jacket get it, it will most likely be ok.

    My concern wasn't the shoulder width, it was the p2p. Fine Creek runs small and a 20-inch p2p would be tight for a size 38 and about right for a size 36. You normally want 3-4 extra inches around the chest. You say you're 5'8, 175. Unless you have tree trunk legs and a very thin upper body, I find it hard to believe that a jacket with a 20-inch p2p would fit you.

    I told the seller I was going to pass due to fit concerns and he said with his 18” shoulder it’s snug on him. I guess it’s why he’s selling. Too bad. It looks to be a nice jacket.

    My rule is if its looks to be a gamble on size then it has to be at a low enough price that I know I can pass it along without too much loss. Sounds like the right call on this one.

    I like that rule. Its why I started this thread. I just don’t know how much I could get for this jacket if it didn’t fit. I don’t have enough experience. When I sell my Maxwell I think I can get about what I paid for it so feel good about that. I have no idea with this jacket.

    Actually a great price for this jacket. You could prob sell it on Grailed for way more with better photos.
