Best part: free quesadillas, coffee, and green tea scones...which are seriously delicious Best part #2: Guerrilla Tacos is parked around the corner
This is probably not going to help you at all, but as far as MA-1's go (I suppose this can apply to the L2-A), people swear by Buzz Rickson - maybe because it is more readily available outside of Japan so more pople have access to it. I've handled both and I personally like Real McCoy - it "feels" and fits better, although the Buzz version feels a lot tougher/sturdy. As far as pure quality, I don't think you can go wrong with either - both are at the top of the repro...
1) So what's the deal with (Seinfeld voice) the new denim program anyway? I mean, besides it being produced in the States (Los Angeles, AFAIK), is it different from the Japanese produced ones in the past (denim jackets included)? I'm sure the cuts are a bit different, but like in general. I'm just a bit confused on this new 'launch'.

I actually emailed Geller some time ago asking exactly that and surprisingly, the man himself responded to me! He said he would send me one for free, but in return he wanted a photo of the jacket that needed it (after I had told him I was searching for said jacket and finally got it, he was curious which of his pieces I was fiending for)My mistake: I took this rare opportunity to send him a pic of all my Geller jackets as well and started to gush over how much I loved his...
