There is a long thread in the manufacturer section on 5 Star. Short version is almost infinitely customizable, stunningly fast manufacture and delivery, great service from Shawn. He is always improving his jackets, I have one of his G1 jackets which is my day to beater and have no complaints. My daughter has two of his, an A1 and a "boat jacket" customized to her shape, she loves them.

Hi, thanks, and how size? i wear A2 jacket from eastman, size 42 and its ok, maybe it would be better something between 42-44 but 42 is good, next i have ATF B10 jacket 44 and its big. and final BRONSON jacket 42 size its i think ok. Original G-1 (70s) size ok.
Thanks.

If you track down his ebay listings he has comprehensive size charts for each style, I ordered off stock and it was a perfect fit. He is quite happy to custom fit and will get you to measure both yourself and your best fitting jacket as well. You can contact him via PM on here, he is usually very fast at getting back to you and very generously extends a discount to VLJ members.
