Unless you've read there before asking your question, "shut the fuck up, kindly."

I was asking for consumer opinions. Please learn to read.

An item that's been available for 11 days? OK.

First pictures of it published on tumblr 2 months ago, some discussion before that. Relax.

Let's stop this argument and admire the beauty of the ma-1 (untouched by moisture, so still in one piece):

 

Edit so to not confuse noobs (or one 3,500 post noob): not me but drew

So how do you like your new wool ma-1, blacktoothedgrin? Does it do okay in the rain? peepwall[1].gif

If you are worried about moths, get a suit bag and fill up your closet with moth balls.
If you are worried about rain, buy a proper raincoat/umbrella.

I was curious if it was 100% wool, or maybe some sort of blend where neither would be a concern. (I notice my wool blend coats and sweaters were never eaten; others, yes, even in a cedar chest puzzled.gif ).

I intend to wear my jackets like jackets -- outdoors, with the expectation of weather.

I can't believe these would be unexpected concerns... O_O

Pretty sure cedar loses efficacy after a few month and you have to sand it down to a new surface. I remember reading something to that effect a while ago at least.

I can also vouch my cashmere blend sweaters have not suffered the same moth damage as my merino wool. The most effective moth treatment I have found is not to cram it away in a dark closet, hang it on your closet door or somewhere in the light. Moths do not like this. Also, shake it out when you are done wearing it. A breathable suit/garment bag is also effective, The Hanger Project sells great ones:

Basically, treat it like you would any other wool overcoat/jacket/etc.

Since you didn't read the earlier discussion (I think?) a bunch of people were complaining when Drew said it was going to be wool that it wouldn't be durable enough and he should make it nylon. Pretty sure you just stumbled onto the hornet's nest of people tired of rehashing that one.
