MDR fit. Jacket is absolutely superb, especially considering it's my first leather jacket.
This is medium gray right?
I think I have narrowed down my choice to an MDR with color preference in the following order.
1. Medium Gray
2. Black Lamb
3. Dark Brown Goat (if only because I like the idea of goat that might break in to something really cool).
The only reason for the wavering between gray and brown is that while I think the gray would be more versatile with my wardrobe, I fear it might be a little bit lighter in color in person than I would like and that it would end up getting dirty easily...while the classic black isn't going to have that issue.
Not fully decided on 3zip vs 4zip MDR. As an already bigger dude, I am not sure that I want the horizontal pocket lines (but it may also be an issue of only seeing photoshop mockups of the 4zip and tons of great pics of the real 3zip)
either or, have a spot for the navy one though. With the black leather trim it looks modern and you will have people contemplating the perennial navy with black debate, and be winning it.
Thanks again. I was also considering some of the lighter colors ( herringbone/ cracked pepper/ greys) but the Navy seems to be winning as it will presumably be less of an effort to keep it clean (or harder for spots/ marks to show anyway).
...or try the A2 in black goat if you like the sound of that. Haven't seen any orders for black goat A2's but that would be so spot on. Try without the name patch on the A2 if going black goat. That was originally a nice contrast between lamb and lamb suede, but the goat is harder and the matchup would be less congruent. The A2 jacket itself in goat would be phenomenal though, with that fur collar.
ack I was all settled on my order; now I'm thinking about switching from brown to black goat
