Drones33, you should check out Magnoli's new white label adventure jacket. Hero Raiders style. Comes in a thin distressed dark cow hide. Tempted myself, but I'm satisfied with how my latest jacket turned out.

Anyway, my most recent jacket. Hero jacket in Wested current Goatskin. Size 40 to allow for comfort and an extra winter layer. 24" sleeves 24" back.

Yup, middle one, top row ( bought it second hand, WAY too long), first one second row, ( got it from Westeds clearance , bit too small with VERY long sleeves, they're rolled up in this shot,) and the second one, bottom row. Got the sizing not-quite right. Close, but not quite.

Major your new goat Hero looks spot on. I'll give the new Magnoli a look, thanks for the heads up.

thanks Drones, they all look great.

I am probably going to purchase a wested hero in shrunken lamb in either a size 44 or 46 reg depending, I will be using my custom raiders size 46 for the sleeve and back length measurements but not the chest measurements as the jacket is too big on me in that area.

My question is, could any wested hero owners in either a 44 or 46 supply their jacket measurements (due to the raiders odd fit) as I don't want to order that jacket and have it too long on the sleeves and the back length which seems to be the common issue with the jacket.

Measurements required -

1) Shoulder length from the side of the collar base to the shoulder/sleeve seam (this will help choose the correct sleeve length so as not too long)

2) Back length from the base of the collar to the bottom of the jacket (so I don't order too long)

3) Pit to Pit measurement across the front of the jacket when zipped (this will help me pick the correct chest size - I know wested won't use this measurement anymore so I thought i'd ask on here for help)

I am around 5' 10/11" with a chest size of 112cm / 44" reg, the reason I ask for this measurement is that from what i have read, wested allow for layering with a jumper in their chest measurements which will probably make the jacket too big as all I would be wearing under the jacket would be either a shirt or t-shirt so would like to size accordingly.

Thanks chaps for you help.

My first Wested jacket is on the way as I speak. I ordered Crusade version in goatskin. Just hoping my usual jacket size (44) will suit me fine.

How come you didn't gave your measurements? I did it 18 years ago and the jacket fitted like a glove. I have it all these years and I'm sending it back these days to change the lining.

Well I read somewhere that making a custom jacket makes thing complicated for both the seller and me, that it usually doesn't end up the way you imagined it. I took my measures carefully and concluded that 44 size is the way to go, plus one person with similar constitution as mine said the same. Every other jacket that i own is size 44, tried one that is 42 and 46 , and it was small or too big and also wested makes a bit of space in the chest area as I have read so 44 is best bet. There is always that fear of ordering clothes online that it wont fit, but I am pretty confident that it will be ok, and hey ! Worst case I will send it back for a different size.

You should be fine. I wear a 48L suit jacket and a Wested in 48 fits fine. I do usually order a size 50 from them as I like a more loose fit. Just a personal preference on my part. The one 48 from them I own fits fine.
