    This is a beauty, Carlos! Glad that you chose the Crown zippers. You nailed the fit! IMO this is the most beautiful LW leather jacket. Seems to be 4.5oz...bullet proof! Congrats!

    From Stuart when i asked if he had thicker available:

    "Your hides are around 5 oz., can't likely get thicker."

    My 42 Suburban weights 7.3 lbs, J23 8.2 lbs without fur collar, Aero 8.2 lbs.
    With all extra leather and belt only weights 7.56 lbs, it doesn't sounds like 5 oz, of course Stuart always exaggerate how heavy his hide is.

    Thanks for the info. Is it a slimmer fit like the J-23? Man, this is a great jacket.

    So, first off, GB jackets are cut large, also, they are cut very ergonomically, I rated GB as among the top three most scientifically designed patterns (Langlitz, Vanson, GB), so, I wasn't afraid to try a 38, considering I have a GB civil A2 in 38 cowhide that is like a second skin. My current size is 44, sometimes 46, for Aero and whatnot, but for GB flight jackets, I do 40 or 42 (already baggy). So I picked up this 38T, using the T to compensate for the loss of sleeve length with moving around and it is perfect. The 38T is comfy, tight at the front upper chest zipped but the feeling is pretty much on par as a 1930s HB from Aero (and that's how it's meant to fit). I also had the option to buy the 42 Short, which fit like an actual movie jacket, over sized shoulder, which compensate for the shortened sleeve, but i chose the slim 38T instead. Well, I may ring them up and buy the 42 Short also, just to complete the GB Indy obsession.....

    Well yes and no. It's slimmer than the suburban, but i would not call it slimmer than the J-23/24.
    This one was tapered down a little at the waist, and it is still a bit baggier than the J-23.
    When you look at it it has a weird hourglass Shape where the tightest point seem to be the pits.
    It has wide shoulders, the pits go in, and and then it somewhat tapers out a bit as it goes down.
    Similar to my Freewheelers LaBrea (also a leathertogs copy) and somewhat more common in Japanese brands i think
    It's a weird shape, but it works.

    The J-24 on the other hand is a classic V shape.

    If I didn't have a LW leather togs already, I'd be ordering one now! Great jacket, great fit! Enjoy braking it in!

    Just had to re-post this sentence: "Will post a review in a couple weeks once it is broken in and i have lived with it a bit more."

    That's rather optimistic, don't you think? Maybe a few months of 24/7 wear? :)

    So many MC jackets look skin-tight and too short IMO or appear very uncomfortable to wear. This one looks spot on and just perfect! Congrats @Carlos
    Wear it in good health!

    Absolutely perfect Carlos!
    I agree that Stuart is pretty damn good when it comes to sizing a jacket. Can’t wait to see more photos of yours as it breaks in and settles down.
