    So thanks to a fantastic member here, I've found a B-3 in my hunt for a winter shearling.

    What do you think of the fit on this wonderful redskin B-3. It's a 44R and I'm thinking I might need to go with a 46? I'm wearing a light sweater as there is no room for a thick one. I love the jacket as the shearling is a bit shorter than a normal B-3 so it's more manageable.

    Looks nice to me, I thought B3 were more trim n boxy than the Irvin when worn
    Are you likely gonna need a thick jumper or is that going to be warm enough for the most part?
    Great B3 regardless

    To tight the next size up would be a better fit.

    Size looks good from here. But is it comfortable or restricting at all?
    Who is the maker?

    The jacket looks pretty good to me!
    Give it a couple of days and see if your thoughts on the sizing change, or if you can, get your hands on a 48 to see which size fits best .

    Perfect size in my opinion. I've never had to wear anything thick under my B-3. Btw, who's the maker? Looks like a mixed batch.

    Perfect fit - but you have to decide if you like it...
    Is it restricting your movement? If not, keep it.

    Fits you well. I doubt you will need a thick sweater under a B-3 unless you live in an extremely cold climate.

    Looks good but a little trim for me, I'd prefer the next size up.

    I think there would be a significant shoulder drop if you take the next size.

    I think you're answering your own question by asking for opinions, yes most think it looks fine but if your not sure/ comfortable then move on, although I think it 'looks' fine too!

    thanks everyone. It does fit great, there just isn't any room for anything extra. And it's a Good Wear Leather.

    If you need a sweater under a B-3 it's too cold where you live!

    I didn't think Goodwear made B-3s. Is it a one off?

    Or maybe you mean it's a good wear :D (Sorry, couldn't help it).
