    turned out great. I think mine will be slightly more than 26inches (67cm if I recall), but I'm 6'0, so should be about the same fit for me, maybe a hair longer which is fine. My Commando is like 27.5 which I think is a touch too long probably way too long for riding, but mine's just for fashion. So I basically came up an inch from there. Think it'll be good.

    My sleeves might come out a little longer than yours though which is ok, although they're bringing in the shoulders on mine a tad, so might end up about the same as well.

    Overall, I'd agree, I think Rip is nailing the fit on these.

    Your description totally mirrors my experience ordering, waiting for, and receiving a Cyclone last spring. Indeed, Rip rocks!

    Another satisfied Lewis customer. Congratulations!
    The fit looks great, I wouldn't change a thing. Lewis ordering process is pretty solid. Very professional and gets good results.
    I'm getting the book on my next Lewis order.

    @BloodEagle you and Rip nailed it to the wall! That looks perfect.

    I’ll just echo what’s been said, that Rip knows what he is talking about on fit and measurements.

    Now it's back to updating the DHL site every hour. LOL

    It has arrived.
    First impression... very nice color, although a bit greener than expected.
    The leather feels great. Very soft, smooth and supple.
    Workmanship at first glance flawless, nice big and sturdy zipper. Should be a #10.
    Lining very nice, sleeves in gold top.
    Two things I need to get used to...the cut is pretty boxy. Is tapered to my desired size, but P2P is 2 cm larger than specified (61 instead of 59) and the taper only really increases in the last third. so I have around the belly quite a lot of material, which is a bit fluttery without belly ;-)
    In addition, the length is still 1-2 cm too long. I usually have 67 cm back and + 2 cm front drop. Since it looked like the jacket has as good as no front drop, we went to 69 cm length to be on the safe side.
    Now it is "too long" by exactly these 2 cm.
    Which is of course nittpicking, because I'm sure if the jacket is break in or I to a T-shirt still pull something underneath that will fit well. And style wise it is seventies and must be this way.
    Good photos I still have to make. Also, the color looks better in real than in the photos.

    That plaid lining is killer.
    I hear you about the length and width... Mine feels somewhat wide in the waist too. But this jacket is best to be judged after it has gotten wet for the first time. Rain/water totally transforms the jacket. It won't get any tighter but it will form lots of creases / grain which will reduce the jacket at least by one cm in length.

    I can echo that - my LL which arrived last week has already lost about an inch in length just from wearing it and getting it wet and the creases naturally shortening it a bit - overall it really has formed to my body shape very quickly indeed.

    Thank you very much.
    Yes, I also think that it will settle down a bit once it is well worn.
    But I must say I already like it very much :)

    Looks awesome! To my eyes thats a great fitting jacket, and the subtle green really lifts it to something special

    ^^the fit looks spot on to me. I love it, absolutely awesome. Good call to opt for brg instead of brown.

    The length goes well with the Racing Jacket style imo. It looks exactly proportioned like this vintage one. The guys at LL know what they're doing.

    @MrProper it's totally cool. Great choice with everything.

    I'm still waiting for notification on mine. I'm expecting this week since I was only a day or two after you when I ordered.

    Totally the bee’s knees!! I love it. The colour couldn’t be better for that style.
    It certainly doesn’t look too big or too long. I hope it will start to feel right soon as well. Mine is an inch on the short side and after wearing it extensively for some time - I couldn’t care less.

    It looks good. You can make every jacket look good given your height and athletic bod. But I hear you. If you have doubts, send it back for a full refund. I am sure they will honor the return policy.

    From your previous jackets I see that you like the aggressive taper to happen between the chest to where the top of the kidney panel would usually go, then straight down or taper even more. The Lewis will never be that. There isn't a lot of break in for the Lewis except more creases. If this fit bothers you now it will bother you always. Just giving you my honest thoughts based on my own past good/bad/unexpected experiences.

    The Super Monza has a more aggressive taper than the Racing Jacket or Super Sportsman…..maybe for the next one ?!

    Thank you for your thoughts.
    But no, I will not send it back. I like it far too much for that.
    It is cut differently than my other jackets and therefore unfamiliar, but not bad at all.
    Besides, variety doesn't hurt.
    I am sure that I will wear them often.
