Yet I reminded him that ".... if you remember I wanted to order a medium. So if you think of it this way I am really only going from a medium to a small. for now I can only guess David went bigger as he wanted it to fit and not be small.
Maybe this will change your mind?
...... I made this decision because the size chart for a large is 46 for chest I am only a 45 chest when measuring my chest with the jacket on. The waist is 40 and a half I am maybe a 40 to 41 inch waist with the jacket on.
So the moment has come. I apologize for the not so perfect pictures, but you know we did our best. I look forward to getting better pictures, and working on videos when Dave comes to visit!
we will get to more sharing, when I have Dave's help during his visit.
Now when it comes to my small
G.I. JOE: RETALIATION COBRA COMMANDER – LEATHER TRENCH COAT. I think we got lucky with a better picture. Also was able to hide my double chin:( boo never had a double chin:( but enough of that...
I didn't get the collar to lay as well as it did in the other picture. Yet Michael did a great job, as this picture is not only clearer, it also more close up. Once I am able to get this jacket to lay on me more loosely I will be able to re-position it, as here you will see it is not centered on me. Another thing that I think will come to be, either from being worn more,or "once" the leather softens? The "right" shoulder pad will lay back more.
We will show this better when Dave is able to help us, but I think what is very noticeable in person. If not coming across in the pictures is the shoulder pads are larger than, and less round than they appear in this and other promotional images.
So once I can slim down more. You can see where the waist will tapper more in. As the belt "Buckles/Velcros separately on both sides .
So there you go, Me in my Jackets:) Thanks for those of you That at least according to what I know have come and liked my posts, have shown your interest, and likes and comments on Facebook. Special Thanks to my Best buddy Dave for giving me some comments Here:D Thanks to David and his crew at UD Replicas for making this jacket available for those of us lucky enough to own this Jacket. I learned lots because of this. Spent lots of money I in someways wish I could have avoided spending on the first jacket, but I learned from my mistakes, and I hope I will have been a help to others learning from my mistakes.
