post #24781 of 42668

This MA-1 talk is verry verryy sad, I asked why the super 150s just to hear his thoughts behind the choice, but I think wool is way cooler than nylon.  I have my dads YSL, blazers and suits from the 80s probably been worn over 300 times between me and him, they did not pill or get fuzzy, they get dry cleaned and brushed and the lining is the only thing that rips/gets replaced.  Would love the piece as it is, especially if it has some down fill, think that would add so much to it.

 

Would def love to see a fit pic of the prototype, it might change people's minds, just like no one will ever doubt the BCDR after we saw it emphasize how stunning that girl is.

When you get suits made from superfine wools, the problem areas are usually going to be in the pants not the jacket.

there are some questions about durability with the smaller fibers, but I would guess that those issues occur mostly in the seat of the pants and at pressure points where sitting and moving put a lot of strain on the seams of the pants. The jackets usually do just fine.

If women find TOJ on guys a tenth as attractive as I find TOJ on this lady, it's easily worth the price and the wait.

the jacket will be fine, especially in the relaxed fitting nature of the jacket without high friction or stress points. It's just balla.

Wifey luuurrrves the jacket. Only thing she asked is whether the upper arm area near the quilt, could be made slimmer?

Jacket looks great on the model.

I think the transition from the quilting to no-quilting at the elbow still looks a little unrefined but hey...it's a prototype right? That's damn good for a prototype that wasn't even cut for her measurements.

Were any orders shipped today? Almost 3 months on my peacoat

That's my amateur feel as well. Obviously he said it has to be attached as a separate panel, but the hemline around the bottom of the quilted portion seems a little off, somehow. Makes it look more like a separate piece than an integrated part of the sleeve.

I can think of two meanings for that acronym, but both are still an appropriate response to the quote lol.

They seem pretty appropriate to me...however, they are complete opposites.

Just want to put in some words of encouragement for the MA-1. As somebody who wears wool suits to work year round I'd be right at home with one. Suiting wool doesn't fall apart, sure I wouldn't go hiking through deep brush with a wool suit jacket but who gives a shit. It would probably be more wearable in the summer months than my leather if it's not filled with something. Either way just waiting on the price and I'm probably in.

I ordered a peacoat near the end of Sept and Charly just quoted me approximately 3 more weeks. I think you'll get yours shipped in a week or two based on that?

Did you guys get a receipt, or confirmation of payment when you paid? I didn't!
