Question regarding fit, as I have never tried a G-1: should the pit-to-pit be similar to the pit-to-pit of an A-1? Or do the gussets and/or different armholes allow for a smaller measurement?
thanks
Well, it depends on how do you like your leather jackets to fit. However the 55j14 is a slim fitting jacket, in the chest, but, it has a more relaxed fit on the shoulders. About the action/bi-swing back and the armpit gussets, the answer is yes, they help a lot with giving you the same mobility and conform as if you were wearing a bigger jacket. My personal advice is to buy it in your true size, no need to size up.

Thanks for the reply Freddy! So the same pit-to-pit as an A-1 or A-2 will fit a more comfortable if I understand well?

Generally yes, but not with every A-2 contracts (not sure about the A-1 as I don’t own one); some of them fits very slim.
But if you use as reference your well fitting A-2 it will be ok (I did the same with my G-1) :)

Thanks for your replies guys, I'm planning to sell some stuff in the TFL and here and then try a G-1, either a good used one or a 5-star.
Cheers

Hi guys,

Is there a 5star model that could be more accurate with a m422a ?
Especially with collar and label ?
Thanks ;)

Ladies!

My latest 5* is ready for shipping ...

Already owned one in exact the same color-combo but got too phat and didn't really fit in any more

New one ordered - photos are a bit rough but it is obvious where we are going

Can't wait to get her into my hands - but as we all know shipping is just a matter of days if you order from Shawn

BUYER BEWARE:

1.5 inch separation dead centre in the mouton of my 5* G-1.
They took two pieces of mouton and sewed it together with pink thread then stuck it on the jacket. The pink stitching is quite literally coming apart and the mouton is quite literally splitting in two.

Shawn justified this problem by saying that: "the collar you are looking for is our old stock which we don't currently used and have fresh."
So, because the collar I asked for is old stock, it is justified that I should have such issues?

I've tried very hard to justify Five star. I'm fed up.
There's no excuse for your poor quality jackets.
I'm done with Five Star. Adios, Shawn.

With all due respect, I doubt you've put as much time on any single 1 of your 15 jackets as I have on my single G-1. Time and wear brings out quality issues. Buying 15 and putting them on a rack won't.

With all due respect from my side: it is pretty easy to come up with assumptions about people even though you do not know them ... - but it is pretty dumb to communicate them without knowing that counterpart

You didn't hold back with your assumption bout me so here is mine about you:

i think you are on of those guys considering back and forth whether to order or not to order - shooting questions over questions with extra requirements, having a lot of extra mods on their jackets and finally cry like babies if something goes wrong. And at the end of the day need an audience to let everyone know how disappointed and finally "done" they are with a manufacturer

You name the people from 5Star like "them" - oh man - it ain't a group of terrorists planning to undermine the western world with patched mouton collars

Well buddy - you started it ...

To make that clear: 2 pieces of mouton patched together to make 1 out of it? Obviously you didn't notice before so I'd give no s...t about it as long as they not come apart and show some pink thread. That is absolutely not OK - also not for a 200.- bucks jacket.

I personally experienced customer service at 5Star always as "top notch" - this is what i stated - and i'm sure if someone would have approached Shawn in a proper way he would have properly reacted.

Period

Hilarious.
So, do you really wear each of your 15 individual jackets a lot? Or do they really just sit on a rack? ;)
