    I'm tempted by an A2 but wanted some experts opinion on sizes.

    Aero leather
    Order No 42-15142-P

    Label says 34
    But seller says the measurements are....
    Chest 40"
    Waist 33"
    Length 24"
    Shoulder 15 1/2"

    The sellers sells a lot of jackets so should know how to measure one. Thing is, these measurements are close to that of my G1 (a size 42) which fits great. The concerning measurement is the 15 1/2 shoulder measurement.

    It doesn't seem to add up. Think it will fit me? I'm 5'11", athletic build at 175lbs.
    Thoughts?
    Cheers in advance,
    Stuart

    The label says no but the measurements gave me hope.

    Shoulder width is very narrow and I can't imagine a size 42 G-1 with a 40" chest.

    Sounds like the seller might have mis measured or just maybe he wants to dump it quickly.
    Who knows, but I would think about it a little more.

    Those measurements are well off.... Something is amiss...
    If the shoulders were 18.5 then it would make more sense (but then that would not be a 34), even then I'd say to small for ye (I'm 5'11 and wear size 40 Aero A-2s and A-2s in general)...
    Possibly an apprentice jacket?

    15 1/2?! You'd nearly need to be a smurf to fit into that.

    Definitely heed the advice of the other fellows, this will be too small, unless the seller has made a cock up with the shoulder measurement.
