London cabbie its usually customary to post at least thirty to fifty pictures of a personal jacket with some taken from the ground pointing up and some from above pointing down ,for this someone has to lay on their back on the ground and take the picture of you wearing the jacket,make sure you blow your nose before . Top view you would need a bucket hoist or lean out of a window will work. Some pictures of you walking backwards so we can see the fit of the back would be nice .

Further to that, don't forget to adopt the appropriate facial expression - be it a determined searching for a far away object, a glare as if sizing up an opponent, a casual somewhat wistful focus on something or other a la Johnny Depp, the British embarrassed half smile directly into the lens, or brash open faced laughing to expose rows of pearly white gnashers or even the cropping of the majority of the face altogether ....the choice is yours, but do try to avoid the sheepish gaze akin to a rabbit caught in the headlamps of a fast approaching car as it waits, unable to move, until the vehicle removes any choice in the matter.

Thanks! These are the stock measurements, is yours exactly the same?
Greg,

I just got my size 40 Platon Dubow last weekend. I ordered a size 40, despite Platon suggesting a size 38 based on my measurements. I just knew that a size 38 would be too small (I am size 40 for most jackets). The measurements of my jacket are not exactly as per Dubow Mfg's website:

Size 40:
pit to pit 21
shoulders 16.9
back 23.7
sleeve 24.6

Now, these are out-of-the-box measurements, just made upon getting the jacket. It will probably stretch some with wear, but I doubt that the shoulder-to-shoulder will stretch 0.5". Having said that, I am quite happy with the fit. It fits slightly looser than my RW 27752, wich is already a trim pattern. For comparison, the RW is 21" pit-to-pit, but 18" shoulder-to-shoulder i.e. 1" bigger than the Dubow. The larger armholes in the Dubow make up for the shorter shoulder-to-shoulder and also make it comnfortable to wear and move one's arms about.
For reference, I am 5'10", weigh 145 lb and wear size 29" trousers.

Oops sorry. Thanks! I’m resurfacing from years ago. I bought a BK 1755 back in 2013 and heavy rarely been on the forum much since then. I had sold it but now want another. The only issue I had was the shoulders were a bit narrow for me.
