yeah i have the same problem with the cuff openings being too big. weird thing is that my doublerider's cuff are perfect but my moto is larger in the cuff opening even though it's the same measurements... could be cause it's lamb and not calf. will check later

your sleeve length is fine though. wouldn't go any shorter man

Quick question on length of A2 bomber and Double rider, should they be around the same length or is the double rider typically a bit shorter than the bomber?

Yeah, I decided to keep it the way it is and the moto thats coming is only .5" shorter and slightly smaller cuff opening. I figure if it's too tight, I can always wear it unzipped. I think it looks better unzipped anyway. Thanks for the input though.

I'm guessing the duffle would be warmer than the peacoat but would the duffle be too warm for 40 F weather?

What's the most versatile and best looking option for a non-black MDR? Any opinions? I'm thinking about a dark whiskey, whiskey or light brown but I'm not too sure yet.

That depends on the rest of you wardrobe etc.

Very true...mainly jeans, boots, ocbd's, sweaters, etc. Mainly workwear/streetwear, but subdued colors usually.

Question on shoulders: I have a CWU-45 with 19" shoulders and I feel like it's a bit restrictive and I have to put both my arms up in the air to actually get it on. Once it's on it isn't that bad, but I would certainly like bigger shoulders on my next jacket. I don't have any great jackets other than my TOJ to compare. Have any of you had luck going off of perhaps a dress/OCBD shirt? In that case, I would be closer to 19.75-20".

Thanks all, and yeah, it's warm as hell.

Jacket looks awesome.

I walked in some rain with it today and was fine. It resists water well enough.

This is a game changer...Especially after seeing notwithit's collared Moto...

Yeah I like my dark whiskey moto too, really nice color and not something you'll really see anywhere else.

I was wondering from either Drew or those who own either the T-1 or T-3 are they warm enough for mid 50 - 65 weather? I live in Bay Area and I'm interested in getting one of the two jackets.
post #26158 of 44925
Yes. Below 50 is pushing it, for me at least.

T-1 or any of those light suede pieces is perfect for that temp range. An oxford shirt, the suede jacket, you'd be sitting nice around 60, even 70.

id hate to buy a jacket not warm enough for 65 degree weather
