check your eyes, my friend. Also, as I said before, the collar wasn't made properly, the shape is right but they forgot to make it button down. ffffuuuu.gif I might sew a couple random buttons on just to show what the roll will be like.

The button placket looks very clean. I typically won't wear shirts with them because they usually end up looking like wrinkled vag.

Bought to hop on the ToJ train with a brown A-2 bomber

 

 

Really basic question:

Any thoughts on placket vs no placket / name tag?

I'm leaning towards 1 but not the other because I'd like a more minimalist jacket.

 

A little worried the placket might make the jacket hang funny when it's open.  I have wide hips but a narrow waist when lean so shit drapes weird on me sometimes.  I'd mostly be wearing the jacket open instead of closed.

idk man, thoughts?

The "name tag" is cool, the new half placket I could take or leave. My jacket has both and I like it, but wouldn't care if the placket was missing. I wonder if you could request a full placket like the older jackets. Won't make the jacket hang funny though.

They're not making the 3/4 placket anymore. I tried to ask for it as well.

Oh, that's it.  

In the fit pics that I've seen the 3/4 placket looks nice, but the 1/2 placket looks weird.  To my eyes, it makes the jacket look shorter/makes it bottom-heavy whereas the 3/4 placket looked nicer proportionally because it ran a longer length of the jacket and helped to lengthen/slim down people's fits.

Had made up my mind just go to stock (with placket/nametag) but now idk ffffuuuu.gif

You're not going to miss the placket if you opt out. Keep the chest patch, it feels nice smile.gif Now just order your jacket and let the wait begin. Really love my A2. Wish I had money for another jacket too.

Half placket looks great on my A2 . I think it's just the way people take pictures of themselves in their jacket that makes it look weird.

It'll look great either way though, honestly.

All this talk about the V2 Oxford made me bust out my V1

That would be a good way to ruin the jacket beyond repair.
