: : I have a raiders jacket which does not fit me anymore because the jacket was a 42 reagular and was a snug fit to begin with. Since then from weight lifting, my chest size has gotten a bit bigger and now the jacket appears , when worn, stretched from my chest. I want to order another jacket which will be not too baggy,but not too snug. Would a 44 reagular be a good fit or a 46? My height is 5'11 and weigh around 175. The 42 fit was tight at the chest and shoulders, but the sleeves were perfect length. If any one could give me some tips i would be thankful .

: Steve, if you're just looking for an opinion, let me put one out. If you're talking about ordering another Wested leather, rather than worrying about ordering an off the rack size, take your exact measurement, as described on the Indy Diggs or Wested Leather site, and send those to Mr. Botwright. Tell him of your concerns, and ask him to make the jacket to fit your current supplied dimensions, but add a little extra to allow for movement, and the ever popular loss to gravity that we males tend to experience. He should be able to make you a new jacket to absolute fit you perfectly, as well as give you that little extra where you need it. I'd then offer your old jacket for sale on eBay, or even here on the forum and recoupe your purchase price of your new jacket. How's that for a suggested plan? Anyway, for what it's worth, that's how I would do it. Regards. Michaelson
Yep, do it as Michaelson said it. I just wanted to add some things
regarding the extra space. You should definitely discuss the problem
with Mr. Botwright and leave some extra space on waist AND shoulders.
I have some problems with my jacket right now as it appears to be too
tight around the shoulders. For detailed information on measurement go
to the Indy's Diggs page. Good luck!
