  1. What size did you originally buy?? I'm trying to match your sizes with the ones sold online by reputable companies and they don't jive.

    The closest I see online compared to your original sizes before shrinkage are a size Med and Large from the store INDEPENDENCE:

    Shoulder to shoulder: 19.5
    Pit to pit: 22.5
    Length: 24.5

    Shoulder to shoulder: 20
    Pit to pit: 23
    Length: 25

    I really appreciate you posting your experience bro. I'm thinking about getting a jacket too and your test helps me.

    Thanks a lot!
