Promised to take some fit pics of the Flying Dominator and FW Brakeman, so I'll post them here, accompanied by the jacket I'm actually wearing today: an early RMC A-2.

Lewis Leathers Flying Dominator, Nappa Sheepskin, Size L:

Any thoughts?

The LL feels borderline too snug and I'm debating with myself whether keeping only either it or the RMC.

I absolutely love the LL. The leather is something else!

Do you have measurements? It may fit (could be „borderline snug“ for me too :)), and if you decide to move it, I’d be all game!

I'm really liking the leather of the LL as it's not comparable to anything else I have owned, LL's other sheepskins included. The Flying Dominators are also the hen's teeth, so I'm very reluctant to admit that the chest is mayhaps too tight.

I'll measure it for you anyways Tom later today.

I think the jacket is perfect. But I also like the jackets rather tight.
I hope my LL Corsair in dark brown Sheepskin comes soon.

Thank you. I can wear it open, esp. when having a light-ish shirt underneath, but it's a bit too snug when zipped up.

@Tom71 here come the measurements (in cm, not in freedom units):

P2P: 57 (1-2 more when stretched)
Shoulder: 50
Sleeve: 63
Back: 62

Drop me a line if you are interested. Can be shipped from Europe.

Edit. Happy to arrange also a trade deal.

My long awaited JL jacket arrived. 4oz+ overdye. WOW. Might take a few years to get some creases. Fit is a little roomy, but I have no problems with a hoodie underneath.

I finally had someone around to snap a few pics right out of the box. I didn't know my little granddaughter did a photo bomb. lol. She was actually helping with the break-in, she was chewing on my sleeve leather zipper pull, adding some patina. lol.
