Particularly for @Bulatik85, my IHJ-54 arrived today.  I am delighted to have picked the XL.  Underneath I'm wearing the IHSH-236 in navy and those are 555-21-ODs. 
Perfect in the shoulders, a size up would be okay but then it's more layers.  I feel confident that I could put this on with t-shirt underneath the 236 and it would not be too snug.  Layering a UHF would be snug but quite cozy, not too too tight but almost.  The sleeves a tad long but it's a biker jacker, so no foul.  My dress shirt sleeve is 34".  Height:177cm  Weight: 180lbs and decreasing.  Gravity and age.  I hope the pictures convey what feels to me like an excellent fit.  And as for the jacket, this is ridiculously nice.  If I unzipped the sides it will be perfect too on the bike for lower half comfort.

Great pics @profdbrk ! Clearly looks like it fits looser for you than on me - To answer @Bulatik85 's question and for comparison, I am 175cm/5'9" and ~90kg/200lbs.

I highly doubt I could fit a UHF under it comfortably, no way with it zipped. With the tighter waist and opening measurements on the 54 I really don't see myself wearing this zipped up at all - it looks a bit odd from the rear with the tight waist and then looser mid/upper back.

After staring at the XXL measurements, I decided to order one (asked for the shortest length/sleeve) in order to compare the fit. For an item like this it's worth making the effort to get it right.

I think that's a brilliant idea, @Manticore.  This is too good not to get perfectly and the IH team are such good eggs about trying on two and sending one back, it makes the buying thing so much better and easier.  I think I will rarely zip up this jacket but, as the pictures suggest, it won't be a problem if do.  With horsehide this dense it's been my experience that its warm with minimal layers and unless you're riding you never really zip it.  Do show us the difference when the XXL shows up. I think we're all really curious about working out fits and sharing those ideas.  Cheers.

That fit looks spot on @Alex . As much as I probably won't layer under this, I would like the option.

The XXL arrives tomorrow so will see how it compares to the XL on me.

Help me Obi-Wan... So the XXL arrived and I'd love some sizing feedback. The XL fit looks "cleaner" but is snug when layered and zipped. It's trimmer than my XL IHJ-35 but the look suits the jacket design IMO, especially since it would rarely (if ever) be zipped up. The XXL is roomier when layered/zipped. However I feel it looks somewhat oversized, both in the body and sleeves.

So... what say you all?

First comparison is with a 3sixteen heavyweight t-shirt only. Here is the XL:

And here is the XXL:

Second comparison is with the 3sixteen heavyweight t-shirt AND IHSH-168 White 7oz western (10oz is probably as thick as I'd go in shirts under this).

Here is the XL:

Here is the XXL:

I think the XL looks way better but I prefer my jackets to be pretty fitted and I’ll deal with a bit less comfort to achieve a fitted look. I guess I’m a vain little bitch.  :D 8)
