Just make sure you don't forget the pockets upgrade. Riri buttons are a nice addition too if you're getting an MDR or BCDR. Some also swear by the higher quality stitching upgrade but I've never had a problem with the basics.

you forgot the most important one: tracking upgrade.

you get emails when each panel of leather is stitched together.

I wonder if anybody's ordered those zippers.

well I realize I could have worded that better and avoided being made fun of, however I set myself up for it :P I'm just waiting on my money to become available in my paypal. it shows up like "balance: $780. available: $140". have to wait for ebay to confirm it. there is good news though (for me, none of you will care.) my measurements are almost identical to a stock 46 so if I miss the cutoff date then i can most likely find a stock 46 mdr on b&s and have almost perfect measurements.

stock 46:

body length, front 21.2"
body length, back 23.3"
sleeve length, from shoulder 25.0"
sleeve width @ pit 7.0"
sleeve width @ elbow 6.1"

Cole you're still young. What if you get in shape and gain summa dat muscle?

 

You don't want to spend $780 + Upgrades on a jacket you can't wear next year!

well I'm not gonna say I'm fully grown because I do think I have room to grow but i dont think I'll grow out of it in a year. if I do, b&s will surely still exist. if it doesn't, maybe I'll just give it to a friend that fits in it. I'm not really worried about growing out of it tbh. I mean, I don't really have anything else to spend $780 (plus upgrades lmao) on anyways. if I didn't buy the toj, the money would probably just go into cheaper clothes and maybe some things like a knife, a new pen, cheap shit

edit: also I hate to say this because I sound like a douche, but I'm already in pretty good shape, I do a lot of bodyweight stuff, but I'm not eating above maintainance in calories and I do a few hours (well, 4, currently) of martial arts every week as well as a fair bit of biking and that all burns a lot of calories so I'll probably be near the same size for a while

also, looking back, that upgrade post did sound insanely stupid..

...one other thing about my Bemberg T3. It didn't have the hang chain that my T1 and another T3 in the gallery has. I can only assume this was a decision based on the fact that Bemberg wouldn't be tough enough to support it, but heavy duty cotton lining would. No biggie.

Cole don't hurry with your decision, because it is a big decision to make and takes careful consideration and comparing to make it.

Can't imagine it would be comfortable anyway.

Don't listen to them, who says you are going to grow out of it and if you do you can enjoy it as long as it fits.


I can still fit 99% of clothes I bought at 18-20 and that is a long time ago.
