(Sizing) Looking for my perfect Schott Perfecto. Help?
I'm in the market to purchase my perfect Schott Perfecto. I spent some time doing some research after measuring my chest (which turned out to be 38 inches or 96 cm) as well as accounting for my height and weight.
Here's my dimensions:
(5"8 / 172 cm tall and 159 lbs / 72 kg with my chest being 38 inches / 96 cm across)
I'm trying to attain a very slim fit look similar to this man's jacket (http://i.imgur.com/FscB7Px.jpg) and i'm not a motorcyclist so i'm only purchasing a perfecto for the fashion look.
I understand there are different versions of the perfecto such as the 118, 618, etc so I went ahead and purchased a vintage 618 in a size 40 a while back. The size 40 ended up looking a little too big on me length wise in the arms, and just in general so I wasn't happy with the fit.
So after selling off the jacket, i'm back to square one. What do you guys recommend I look into out of the perfecto line? My budget at the moment is only the used vintage line of jackets online so i'm looking into what could fit me well. Should I go for a 618 or 118? What should I look for when considering either version of the jacket? Again, accounting for the picture I linked, I want to have a fit similar to that.
Thanks so much for all your help!
