New goat is very nice, same pebbled texture, normal sheen, colors from olive to yellow (which is pretty pleasant, for being yellow leather) - and then apart from that:

This new goat you speak of, is there a dark (or darkish) brown? If so, would you recommend it over the "old" goat, for say, a 4-zip MDR?

Sign me up for this minimalist TOJ0, especially after the disastrous fit with the Patrik Ervell varsity. What do you have in mind for the new-gen baseball?

Yeah--are there any new brown goats without the glaze?

I'd felt the black lamb before and knew how much thicker it was, but wow this thing feels so much heavier than my cream 4-zip.

Re: cuff opening, these do seem bigger than before, though not sure if it's partly because these aren't convertible cuffs. Not really gonna lose sleep over it though.

^^ looks really good, my cuffs seemed bigger on my quilted moto but I think it was really just because of the padding that's needed for the quilting on the arms but I ended up getting tailored a little at a place in SF

Any pictures of the gold zippers? I think they could look either really good on black

Cuff on my ~48 DR was 5.5 which was fine, can't put a fist through. On MA-1 it's 5.8 but assuming that's above the ribbing it'll be good too.

Ok TOJ disciples. I've been planning on selling this jacket that I fell in love with because it felt too long and I'm not sure about the shoulders. But I wanted to get feedback before I did something I regret forever!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Jacket is a bit tight around the midsection, but I plan on losing a couple dozen pounds this year. The waist kind of hits my hips and I'm not sure I can pull it off. It's hugging my hips and the top arc of my ass. It's actually a little too tight to be worn comfortably closed without pulling the lower zipper up a bit. (It flares out a little as you can see. I am kind of hoping weight loss will help this...)

 

Lastly, the arms are a bit tight. They feel snug with just a regular t-shirt on. A longsleeve makes them feel tight and a sweater would make it uncomfortable.

too long/small
post #27701 of 43084

So..after wearing in my bomber a bit and re-introducing carbs to my diet I've come to realize that the armholes are insanely high and borderline uncomfortable.  The jacket is super tight on my upper back (near my pits) and may be too small in the shoulders for me as well.  For future reference, does a larger upper arm measurement lower the armholes/make the jacket fit more relaxed?  I feel like I'm wearing a girls jacket sometimes right now lol, maybe its the fur

Just paid for the wool ma-1.

 

A nice gift for my future self.

i dunno , judging from your pics a few pages back, it doesn't look tight at all--big if anything.  are you layering?

 

that said, sell to me devil.gif

Length is perfectly fine, possible a little tight, but not unreasonably so
