    Ok, i order this motorcycle jacket for xmas. Size 48, fits snugly, but could goto a size bigger. I just started working out, and dieting this week. Trying to drop 20lbs. My dad keeps insisting to go for anther size bigger cause he doesnt think im going to lose any size in my chest. I keep laughing at him, cause when i lose my my boobies, i know that size 48 is gonna be lose on me. He has me all confused, i dont wanna return it for a size bigger cause when i do lose this weight, i dont want to be swimming in this thing.

    So wait - not only do you want us to try to size a jacket we've never seen, on a chest we've never seen, but you want us to be able to accurately determine what size jacket you will need to wear in the future, based on a fitness regimen that may or may not force you to lose fat and add muscle, but most likely neither? I just want to make sure that's what you're asking. :big grin:

    I lost 2 inches in my chest in the first three months I started working out.

    Dude... keep the jacket. Have you had a leather bike jacket before? I assume it's an A*? It's gonna get loose as you wear it in. Plus you're going to get smaller if you actually keep dieting and working out.

    If this is your first leather jacket, I'm betting it's too big for you already. Plan on buying a new one next year. Sucks at $300 a pop.

    i have spent alot of money on clothes over the last year, my chest has went from a 54 to 44, i never thought i would lose that many inches in the chest, i have some suit jackets that i have worn maybe once, my pants have gone from 44 to 34 is now a little loose

    if you plan on losing weight you will probably need a smaller jacket soon

    If it's a leather jacket it will stretch and break in...but if you plan to lose 20 pounds then the jacket will be a little big once you reach your goal. Best you can do is wear it now and sell it later.
