    CBI, the Bronson B-10 I have is labeled a size 40 and I believe that is their medium. As compared to the BR RW I have also a 40, is a little bit more trim than the Bronson. I don't have other Bronson items. Also, you are right about the sizing of other clothing here in China. Much of the clothing I have bought here is either xl or xxl and I am about 5' 10" (and shrinking), weight is 165#;

    FYI: There is a seller on Ebay that is selling B-10 and B-15 jackets. The seller is xinwater. Received an email from this person and told me the jackets are Bronson.
    Cheers,

    Hi Don,
    No, I was a little too late for this one despite mailing JC as soon as I saw the post about it on here.
    Having said that, I'm not a big fan of patched jackets, so a similar 'combat clone' with perhaps just a name tag will be sufficient for me. I have no B-10s at the moment (I've bought/sold a load of ELC B-10s and a couple of B-15s in the past), so a GW B-10 would be one that I'd hold on to.
    Regards
    Ian

    Hello Ian,
    I am not a fan of patched jackets as well. I would have probably modified it. It was too big for me anyway.
    I do remember you had sold many B-10's and that is why I thought you had a "personal collection" of them. I do remember I was going to buy one of your B-10's some years ago and the sizing was a bit off for me. I would think you'll join the que for a GW B-10. I am waiting for a couple email replies from GW before i make a decision regarding the B-10.
    Regards,
    Don

    Hi all, I'm considering the Bronson B10 and a little confused with sizing . I'm 177cm (5' 9.5") and 81 kg (178b) and about a 41" chest . Which size should I be going for ? According to size chart a medium is for a 44 chest or do they mean 22 pit to pit on the actual jacket ?

    I‘m 1.90 mtrs with a weight of about 95 kg‘s and wear the XXL - i‘d Rather go not too small coz the chinese/ Japanese sizing is not comparable with Westerners sizing

    In my „normal“ life i usually wear „L“ or „XL“ respectevly 44 in US sizes but not XXL

    So I recommend you go at least 1 size higher then you usually wear

    Thanks Thomas , is that a snug fit on you or roomy ? Sounds as if I may be an XL ...

    My jacket has arrived, but I simply have no time to take pictures of it.

    FYI, I am 1.8m (5'11"), 72kg (165ish lb) and I am wearing L (40).
