The black lamb on my MDR felt thicker than the brown unglazed goat on my A-2. The MDR weighed in around 3.0 lbs while the A-2 was closer to 2.5 lbs with shearling collar attached. It's not really a good test though, because they're different materials and different jackets.   The MDR probably just felt thicker to me because lamb itself has a "meatier" feel to it.
 I really love mine for early spring/late fall.IMO if you wear it on its own, it's really suitable for weather between 5°C (~40°F) layered, and 15°C (~60°F) unlayered. It's also cut fairly slim, so you can layer it underneath a hard shell for winter if needed.
Just wanted to chime in and thank Bailey from the NYC Armoury crew for the excellent assistance and experience. I wanted to buy a Ring Jacket suit but wasn't sure about sizing as some people suggest sizing up due to the slim fit. I fired off an e-mail and compared measurements/fit to an existing suit of mine... I wasn't sure about how the shoulders would fit, but Bailey suggested going TTS for the suit.   Well, I received the suit and was really thrilled with the fit -...
 Ship it via USPS so that Canada Post ends up doing the final delivery.Worst case scenario, they'll be charged $8 brokerage fee + 5% GST, + x% PST (depending on province).They almost never charge duty on goods coming from the US - just taxes + $8 brokerage fee. Then again, if you list the value of goods really low (say, $25) they usually don't bother attempting to collect any fees at all... it could be a problem if the parcel is lost though.
Ordered late June, received in October 2013. I've worn it a handful of times and I haven't taken it out at all since I received my bomber a couple of months ago. I really do like the A-2 that much more, and I'm not too fond of the DR aesthetic so I'm letting it go to a better home. This version is + Excellas + Bemberg lining, so MSRP was $865.   Selling for $700 USD which already includes shipping and paypal fees.   I'm 5'9", 170 lbs for reference and I asked Charly...
I'd be down for a suede harrington if it was in medium gray.
It's been brought up before, but my biggest "beef" (so to speak" with WvG in general is lack of cohesion. If I think of the brand as a whole, I would say that WvG is best known for its casual prints/button down shirts. There are some suits, a dress belt, dress trousers, etc that just seem so out of place when I think of WvG in a context of casual clothing at its core.   Also, while Mauro appears to primarily advertise his goods to toteholders, it'd be a good idea for...
 I can't think of anyone who makes a garment using technical fabrics with a traditional inner lining...You're probably better off looking for traditional garments made from Loro Piana's storm system fabrics, such as this Mackintosh jacket: http://www.mrporter.com/product/339992
How's the fit on Ring Jacket stuff? I took a look at the measurements on their Rakuten shop and it looked like I'd have to size up 1 or 2 sizes to get my normal fit? Then again, if I just go by the measurements, it looks like their stuff is cut more for your typical slim Japanese male, so anyone who worked out at all would have a tough time fitting into one of their jackets/suits
What size do you usually wear for jackets? Your measurements seem off...   Do you have any other clothes that fit how you want the TOJ0 to fit? If you do, then measure those clothes and use them as a comparison. Did you follow their measuring guide? http://johncoppidge.tumblr.com/howtoorder   Also, did you tell Charly what kind of fit you were looking for? The more information you give him (with accurate measurements), the more he'll be able to help you out. The...
