Size 50 stock suiting wool MA-1 in black.

post #31037 of 39255
Got my MA-1 yesterday. I'm not sure how emphasized this has been, but the padding on this jacket is heavy duty. It's kinda like wearing a padded down jacket. The cell pocket is a little shallow for Nexus/Galaxy sized phones, so the corner of the phone is barely in the pocket. ToJ tag is in the left pocket vs the usual spot.

So it turns out my MDR fits perfectly. The torso could be even a little slimmer but in general, the fit is spot on. One thing I'm quite worried now is that the shoulder and arms area will stretch out over time as I break this jacket in. Should I have ordered the jacket tight initially?

How long did your order take?





and just a general newb question but when will this seasons models be discontinued? trying to gauge how much time I have left to get the ma1 before it goes away ...

No one really knows. Drew tends to announce when models are discontinued in advance, I don't believe he discontinues models out of the blue.

i think people should really get into the habit of pausing and taking a minute before going on and actually asking a question here.

 

do you really want a jacket that you can only wear if you're within 5lbs of where you are now?

 

if the jacket is too slim, you'd be concerned about it's longevity and layering applications

if the jacket is too roomy, you'd be concerned about it looking too wide (which would be incredibly difficult given the toj cut) and dated

 

material of any sort doesn't stretch without a reason, if the jacket fits you fine it won't just magically stretch to where it doesn't. 

 

it's pretty safe to say a lot of people here try to emulate drew and synth's fits but both of them typically err on the side of flowing vs constricting when it comes to these kind of garments. i believe drew has mentioned that he purposely sized up two i think on his 5 zip so it'd balance the size of his head or something along those lines. think about that.

I don't think I'm fully over how cool gold zips are
post #31045 of 39255
Black Lamb BCDR with double-needle quilt with gold zips.

Thoughts?
post #31046 of 39255
Not sure about double needle on black leather, could be completely wrong though.

When I inquired, I was told the wool MA-1 would likely be done around summer time. I probably should cut down on drinking or some other expenses and order one... or a black suede 2010DR.
post #31048 of 39255

Man a Black Suede 2010 DR would be some next level shit

post #31049 of 39255
This thread makes me go "oh yeah thatll be my next jacket... wait... no thatll be my next jacket...wait."
post #31050 of 39255

I believe Drew would tell you that if you're going to go black, go lamb. IF you're going to go suede, pick a color other than black.
