There was a thread on here several months ago by a guy who specializes in tailoring your leathers. If they don't fit your body exactly the way you want he can cut them and stitch them to your specs.

If someone could link that guy's info it may help the OP

I have to say that ICON has been good to me. I have their Death or Glory leather jacket and matching lid it's been good to me. JS.

I went and tried on all manner of jackets. I tried Dianese, Alpinestars, Joe Rocket and a few others. All of them seemed too loose in the chest size 48 euro. I'm not a big person, but Jesus, I seriously couldn't find anything. I don't remember my initial Dianese jacket fitting that bad.

Suggestions?
