Most of the posters in the GoT thread have read the books and half the content is contained within spoilered posts talking about why the directors made certain changes from the books and hypothesizing about where the story will go (since GRRM is involved with the show and has told the showrunners how it all ends, you can probably infer that things that are cut from the show will not be important to the overall story).

Thanks for the invite, but the bolded part is really what I am trying to avoid smile.gif

Also, dark brown goatskin is really nice!

It really is...

Also, very interested in more shots of the navy MA1, if anyone's received one recently.

Thinking about a dark blue soft calf jacket. QDR or new DR? And Drew, is there anyway youcould be convinced to do gold zips on a blue jacket? Or would that just look terrible and silver is the way to go?

Either of those models would look good in the soft blue calf, but gold zippers are gonna look bad there. Gold zippers look good on the edgiest of the designs, in black. Color + gold zips is one too many variations away from the base.

MA-1 has successfully navigated customs hell and is sitting safe 'n sound under my desk. Just had a chance to wear it when I went out to grab lunch, fits so well, and the lambskin is everything that's been said in this thread and more.

gold + brown might work if the gold looks like brass, but otherwise I can't really imagine gold + color not looking pretty bad

If you can wait for another two weeks or so, I'd be happy to share some insight

My A-2 in brown lamb measured 2.76mm at the bottom of the jacket where it is 2-ply without lining using a set of calipers, so I'd wager it's typically 1.25-1.50mm thick.

Measured a few more spots and got about 3.01mm as a max thickness.

My black lamb thickness varies a lot throughout the jacket. One sleeve is significantly thicker than the other. Don't have tools to measure thickness though lol

OK GENTS, I'M READY TO PULL THE TRIGGER ON A BLACK LAMB CHARLY SPECIAL. 

 

If I want it for September - when should I be ordering it? 

 

 

Sorry to all if this has already been answered.

Should've ordered a month ago if you want it by September
