I had the same problem.
The first armor was to wide for my proportions (I'm 6.5ft / 1.98m but slim type).
Then I bought a mid-size armor which fits me a lot better now.

Edit: Here are the dimension of my armor (according to Mac's parameters):
Corner to corner: 39cm (15.35")
Shoulder to shoulder: 56cm (22.04")
Approx. neckline width: 26cm /10.23")

Here a picture:
(The helmet is SPFX ESB. The armor is from a vendor I don't like to mention in public, because I heard later from his bad private reputation).

In comparison to a somewhat similar view of the original (with the bells inside attached):

Those who wonder why my helmet dome is covered:
My painter said proudly: "Even these casting defects on the front of the dome I repaired" :eek :pale :banger
Nightmare! :drool For us it's all so obvious ...
So I had to restore this feature very carefully ... With time one becomes courageous! :wink:

So it is time for some updates on my Darth Vader.

EVERYTHING that you guys saw few years back is gone and REPLACED! Here is a whole brand new version of my Vader on Display. Ive been working my ass off to make it as screen accurate as possible.

Here is a parts list.

Helmet: Darth Stone's latest ROTJ
Armor: Darth Stone V1(I do not like the V2. Don't find it as accurate.)
Chest Box: Pieced together with Dark Side greebles and a few from my old Porty box. Right now the box itself is being refinished.
Belt Boxes: Hammonds with the right found red lamp.
Belt: Self made, thinking about getting a new one.
Buckle: Dark Side
Cod: Artisan Props
Capes: KevVader's
Suit: 3 piece Fenix Props Leather
Boots: Replica German officer boots
Gloves: ESB Fenix Props

I have been working a lot at a new job so Trooping time has been Vacant. I built up a mannequin to display the suit on. I also had an SD card with a few worn photos but it got lost in the mail when I was sending it to a friend.

Enjoy the photos. Chest box is temporarily absent.

Youre the second person to say that LOL. I didn't think they were that dark.

Here is a recent picture of me in costume from the Akron Comic Con.

I had to send back my cape to the seamstress because the back of it still dragged on the ground and people were stepping on it! I specified only material taken off the back as the front hovers over the ground. I'm trying to achieve the taper affect seen in the ROTJ.

No, that is Stones V1 armor. Absolutely no Rubies parts at this present time.
