Not sure who'll be interested, but after a while I've got these measurements back from the Gargyle site regarding the Corpus lambskin leather bomber (the one Snaye tried on):

Medium:
shoulder-shoulder: 17"
pit-pit: 20"
collar (at shoulder)-waist: 27"

Large:
shoulder-shoulder: 18"
pit-pit: 21"
collar (at shoulder)-waist: 27 1/2"

Extra Large:
shoulder-shoulder: 18 1/2"
pit-pit: 22"
collar (at shoulder)-waist: 28"

Didn't ask for the small or xs, but you can easily guestimate from these.

MoB wrote: fuck sake. do you think it was 18 pit t pit or bigger? cos 18 is like a 36 chest which for a padded(albeit slightly) jacket is well small. Im starting to think there might be two models of the jacket and its not unisex as some of the shops are saying.

I thought it was unisex as well but from what i have found out, there are two versions of the jacket both a mens and womens that vary in cut.

Not sure if you're asking me, but never asked.

Surprised you haven't received yours yet MoB. Hasn't it been a while now?

I was but no worries.
there was a delay in sending it as the shop had to wait for the order to come in. Should be here tomorrow fingers crossed.

It looks really shit on every model so far. Much nicer in the flesh.

I know they have black in stock, but surely thats Brown in the pictures?

They really have done their best to make this jacket look terrible with the choice of models and pics they used Puzzled

Hope yours fits MoB.

I like the apc, reminds me of a fishermans smock I had years ago that fastened at the front a bit like that.
